Windows 7: Flickering lines suddenly appearing on my HDTV connected to my RIG ...

Flickering lines suddenly appearing on my HDTV connected to my RIG ...

Just today,i noticed some strange flickering lines appearing on the corner of my screen.And after sometimes , these lines are spreading to other areas of the screen.

I have tried removing any metallic or magnetic objects near my screen.Since , that causes these lines sometimes near the screens.But no luck.

I tried attaching a small video that i made of these lines with my cell but seven forums won't let me attach

So , now i have attached a picture (which is not going to be enough to understand , perhaps).

Kindly guide me what to do.Is it my HDTV or does it has something to do with my RIG's graphics card or something else...

ok.So,something weird that i encountered while trying to find a solution to this problem.

As i said before that , the 32 inch T.V is working fine with the Laptop on HDMI.So,i just put the wire back and after viewing my Desktop again.I noticed , no lines are appearing anymore..

I just released that changing the position of my RIG's backside (which was like almost close to the wall , SEE PIC # 1) containing all of the ports & wiring, , the lines aren't appearing (Kindly see the attached Pictures 2,3,4 & 5)

Can someone explain , just what happened here

It's very possible that your HDMI cable was partly disconnected on your desktop computer. Re plugging it in might have cured the problem. I would watch it for a while and see if the problem has truly gone away.

It could have also been a heat issue with your PC so close to the wall. The ports may have been blocked too much. Leave at least a couple inches between the back of the PC and the wall.

No,i re-plugged the cable many times.I actually , changed the positions of the HDMI ports from 1-2 to 2-1 , since both sides of the HDMI port are the same..The problem was still there. Until now...

And yes,the gap between the wire ports and the wall was very small.So,that could have been a possible reason.The lines appearing pattern was strange.Sometimes appearing , sometimes not , sometimes appearing on the corner of the task bar on left side.Sometimes on the top right corner of the screen.Sometimes , appearing in the middle and making long horizontal lines...Sometimes appearing while viewing video files ...

Regarding watching for a while,you are right.I will do it.I am not gonna change my RIG's position.See what happens....

I hope it stays like this

You know , this might be the actual reason for the flickering lines.But we will have to see.I have RELUCTANTLY , changed the position of my RIG to the previous one.This time however,i have left may be 1 or 2 inch gap from the previous distance of the ports and the wall.

I am going to test this final time , before i check this post as SOLVED ...So, bear with me guys
