    Hi all I just got a Sony LCD monitor from my brother and I hooked it up to my
    Dell albeit it older 866 xps_r system. The Machine has the NVidia 64mb GeForce
    Card in it. I downloaded the appropriate sony
    drivers from their website and everything works fine the color and everything
    is beautiful...What my problem is that I have what appears to be scan lines
    running through on a page of text for instance or anything with a white
    background. They appear to conincide with every line of text or every other
    line like a non interlaced or interlaced situation. Does anyone have any
    ideas, I was wondering if it is the Video card not supporting it or something
    or the refresh rate being wrong. I would greatly appreciate any help anyone
    might have at all....Thank you all in advance and everyone here have a Very
    Good New Years....Andy

    I may be wrong, but I've seen what you're describing on my Trinitron CRT (a
    couple of times) after a clean install of WinXP using the XP native drivers.

    As soon as I changed over to Detonator drivers, the problem went away. Not
    sure if this is what you're seeing or not, but it basically screwed up the
    scroll/refresh of any/all text in IE webpages....
