i am seeing you have a acer x193w....
i have one too......
is this with dual inputs (VGA+DVI)??
im guessing it only has vga since your res is 1990x440 (mine is too)
i am getting flickering but not that severe......

but this looks like memory (probably video card) corruption
have you OC your video card?

Yes i have both the vga and the dvi..i am running the dvi..I dont see 1990x440 option here ..But as soon as i went to the screen resolution and changed my refresh rate to 75 Hertz the black lines went away..hmm i left that box open in the background and went back and looked after i change the refresh i saw the lines go away..Was that a hint to me..

i guess it was a refresh issue....
as for me i have had no problems with it anymore with a monitor update through (though i can only hit 60hz....)
