hi Robi, first off do you have another cable you could try ? if so and you get the same probb go to devices.msc and delete your graphics driver , reboot and use the standard vga driver, do you still get the same prob ?

robi , sorry for not reading your system specs carefully , here is a link to the Dell drivers Drivers & Downloads they are only for XP so install the drivers you need in compatibility mode Compatibility Mode if that does not still solve your problem it could be the invertor or lcd screen is on the way out

Does it happen when you are playing games but not when at the desk top? OR, does it happen only like several minutes or a half hour after booting the first time fo the day, but then maybe much less time after you reboot?

That kind of behavior indicated that temperature is causing problems, either you have very poor air circualtion or it's very hot where you are and the cad is over heating, OR there may be a cold solder joint that fails when the card warms up (A serioursly large problem with al electronics since the eradication of working (leaded) solder)

Ok, well there's no real smoking gun there, but if the vertical lines are like staticy, moving, or look like they are somwhat randomly wigling or shimmering then it's still likely bad hardware. Since you say the computer crashes shortly thereafter it's most likely the video card rather than the monitor.

It could even be the motherboard itself actually. If you have a spare, older vodeo card that will work in that otherboard you might try replacing it with that for a few days and see if it goes away.
