Default Monitor not working properly

I was working on my computer this morning, visiting some websites and all of a sudden one of my monitors goes black... I unpluged it and turned it back on the the screen came up all pixelated and flashing.

here's a photo of it...

The monitor is a hyundai imagequest L70S (

I tried uninstalling the driver and then reinstalling it again but it still isn't work... Any ideas what might be wrong?

Drivers on the monitor will not help, but did you tried pluging it in on another PC or another video card slot??

Just tried then... it works perfectly on another machine... I don't have another slot on my current machine that works...

The machine on the left is VGA and the one on the right is digital. My graphics gard is a NVIDIA GeForce 6600 GT.

Narrow it down. Sounds like it's the video card, so try that card in another computer. If the card is fine, your mobo has to be replaced.
