Default Whats going on with my LCD?

I've had this LCD monitor for 3 years now and havn't had any problems with it untill now. When I play games like wow the screen starts to shake and get lines through it. It starts in the upper left corner then gets worse untill I have to restart my computer. Its not so bad that its impossible to use its actually not very bad at all but its so annoying. This was happening a month ago before I left for vacation. 3 weeks later when I came back there were no problems but now after 2 weeks after I came back its starting again. Anybody know whats going on? Maybe my monitor is just too old?

Yeah, my graphics cards messed up, and a lot of artifacts appear when viewing images, and playing games.
Red dots, and odd green lines where shaders are usually.

Try un-installing and re-installing your graphic card drivers. Its a long shot, but you never know

Try your monitor on another PC if you can.

Take your card out and clean any dirt and dust that might be in it. I have to do this every year or so because the gpu fan gets so clogged with dirt that the card begins to overheat when I use graphics intensive apps. Hope that helps

I have:
Neovo f-417 lcd monitor
geforce 7600gs agp graphics card

When I run a Display optimization wizard, it brings me to this screen and tells me to press the autosnyc button. The test display has shakey black lines running through it. Before and after I autosync. Not always though sometimes autosnyc fixes it.

It seems to happen when I minimize games like half life 2 then reopen them. My graphics card didnt fit perfect so I had to kinda force it. I dont know if that would cause this though because, this is the first time I've seen this in the 3 months since I've had it. I'll deffinately try cleaning it I'm just afraid to touch my card because, it was so hard to get in I'm surprised it worked and I dont want to test my luck, haha. I have to work up the guts.

Hopefully graphics cards are like old nintento cartridges. I was no less rough then I'd be with one of those. No blowing into it or banging it on the top though :P.

You shouldnt need to force the graphics card to get it in, so i reckon you have either damaged the card or slot, or you havent fitted it in properly.
