Windows 7: Dell LCD Monitor Has Horizontal Lines on all Resolutions but 1280x1024

Dell LCD Monitor Has Horizontal Lines on all Resolutions but 1280x1024


I have a Dell Monitor model # 1908fwpt and we have used it as an external for a few laptops now, and on the last two hook-ups it has constant, non-flickering white horizontal lines across the screen. The only resolution that doesn't is 1280x1024 for some reason. I have changed the cables, used both VGA and DVI, and run the self-diagnostics and updated all drivers. I have chased this issue up and down and not been able to come up with a way to fix it. The monitor is not old, it hasn't been used very much, and I really don't want to replace it...

Any thoughts? Since its done it on a few different computers I tend to think its not a driver issue, or a cable issue... And the one resolution it works on is all stretched out and flat.

Have you tried posting on the Dell Video forum? That would be a good place to start.

I'd recommend posting on the Dell forums. If it's doing it on multiple computers, it's a monitor problem.
