Question ViewSonic Monitor garbled video

I have a ViewSonic VA800 that is intermitten. The OSD is allways good. Sometimes when I turn it on there is no video just verticle lines some wide some narrow I think that it could be a sync problem. Sometimes the video is perfect, does any one have any ideas??

Thank you

Process of Elimination...

Start by checking connections - both outside the computer and inside the computer. If that doesn't help - move the monitor to another computer and see what happens. Still no good? Try a hammer on the monitor - it's not worth the time.

Good luck!

Had that problem (or at least similar symptoms) with another monitor recently. Turned out to be one of (or a combination of) two things.
1) I removed the case on my old computer and cleaned off the video card with a can of compressed air with cleaning agent.
2) Booted in Safe Mode. Uninstalled the video card and rebooted, reinstalled newest drivers for the card from ATI.

Haven't had any problems since.
