Default Horizontal Red Lines on LCD: Screen or Mobo?

An hour ago I was on my computer and everything was hunky-dory. Get back on and, voila, screwed up screen!

Pic:

Swapped video cards, still red lines. Swapped cables, still red lines. So it seems like a problem with the LCD itself. But, then pressed the menu button on the lcd and it's option menu is clear as day.

Pic:

I am confused. Could the motherboard be the cause? Has anyone had a mobo mess up there video feed? Any other ideas?

PS: no other comps to test on

Have you tried reinstalling drivers? Tried a different monitor? Looked to see if any pins are bent on the video cable?

Hello,

As mentioned, the next thing I would do is try another monitor. You'll have to borrow one.

Made a few calls. I'll have a new (well, really old) monitor to try out in a few hours.
