Default failing monitor?

I'm pretty sure i have a failing monitor, but would like someone who would know a bit better what ive got going on.

I have a 2 monitor setup, but the 2nd monitor runs off the igp. i would switch them, but the 2nd monitor has a vga plug only.

the primary monitor on dvi is getting some intermittent artifacting. scrolling down on a page really brings it out, but not necessarily. the bottom of the screen flickers and goes nuts and seems to be displaying a zoomed in view of the screen.

ive also been getting horizontal lines (the full height) and vertical lines ( 2 or 3 pairs across the screen). they dont black out, but probably just a repeat of the pixels beside them.

also the lines just went away, but not the screen craziness when scrolling.

any ideas?

thanks,

Default Re: failing monitor?

welp, fixed it by turning on overscan in the gpu settings, as i was trying to figure out the flicker.

what does that mean. is everything broken?
