Check the monitor cables If the monitor has a degauss button to eliminate accumulated or stray magnetic fields, press it Check if something is causing electrical noise Check the refresh rate where the screen is drawn and try different ones if your monitor supports them Check CONTROL PANEL, DISPLAY, SETTINGS to see if a high resolution is selected(greater than 800x600 with more than 256 colors) Consider these issues:

The video card may not support the resolution/color settings

The monitor may not support this resolutation or refresh rate.

Check the software configuration on the computer Boot on SAFE MODE which makes the OS to use a generic video driver with low resolution and refresh rate

There might not be enough RAM; 2MB or more required

The video ram might be different speed than memory Go to setup and disable the shadowing for the video ROM.
