Hello! Sorry to have to query such a boring thing, but I have searched the web and the messageboard and come up with nothing on this topic. I am not especially IT-literate so please excuse me if this problem seems obvious to you.
I turned on my monitor this morning at work (as you do) and when the screen warmed up, it was the same as usual. I did some work in Word and Outlook (not too much!), then went to get coffee.
When I came back, my Word screen (usually grey) had lighter grey lines running diagonally across it. I thought this was strange so I checked the monitor cables, rebooted the machine, turned off the monitor for 15 minutes, pressed the mysterious degauss button; everything I could think of short of opening the cursed thing up, but the lines remain.
My monitor is pretty old (I think it’s 3 years old, but I’ve only been working here since September, so I’m not sure) and I was wondering whether there could be any simple solution I’m not thinking of.
Thanks for bearing me!
