can you explain more like is it only during games? check your cord to see if its plugged in all the way, that or maybe some settings are off on the actually screen.

Make sure the vga/dvi is plugged in all the way into the computer. Also wiggle the monitor wires to make sure wires are not shorting. If the problem still exists, you probally need a new monitor. The monitor is probally going bad

Also do you know what kind of monitor it is? CRT, LCD... what?

Heres some generic things you can do to fix the problem:

1. Update/reinstall your video drivers to see if its a driver problem
2. Right click your desktop, go to properties, and click the settings tab. Raise the resolution of your computer and see if it helps if you can.
3. If your using 32-bit color, try 16-bit color. Its less strenuous and could help resolve the problem. The option to change this is found right next to the resolution drag bar.
4. Then click the advanced tab under the settings tab of the properties box, and a new window should pop up. Click the monitor tab, and try playing around with your refresh rate. Try putting it on its lowest setting, then its highest setting.

If none of this helps try using a different monitor, Compaq doesn't necessarily have the greatest reputation for quality.
Karma/rep is always appreciated

There are only 10 kinds of people in this world. Those who can read binary, and those who can't.
