Does it appear after a while . Winxp do you mean windows xp or another program.

That is pretty weird - is it always different or always exactly the same. How long does it take to start up? Got any magnets near it?

I assume you have a CRT display, if so, do you have a degauss button?
It may have been affected by a magnetic field. Does a "thump" come from the tube on switch on? Try turning the monitor around to see if the display changes.

Have you tried a different graphics card?, or your graphics card in another system?

Does this fault happen straight away or after some time?
