Well, sadly, you told us absolutely nothing about this device. Could be a tablet or smart phone - who knows. With the airplane icon, I can only assume it is not a notebook. We also don't know how long this has been going on, as erocker noted.

At this point all I can suggest is to reboot and see what happens.

Cables don't just go bad though they can be physically damaged, or come loose losing contact or allow dirt between the contacts.

I would try a different monitor and see if the problem appears there too. If it does, the problem is in the computer. If not, the problem was with the old monitor. If you don't have another monitor, most modern TVs support computer inputs.

It is a TV, running from a VGA Input because the VGA TO HDMI converter wouldn’t work. I’ll see if I can find a different cable and see if it fixes it.

Is the problem happening to the system listed in your System Specs?






If so, it's likely normal since that video card isn't very powerful- running 1920x1080 is a pretty tall order for it

Huh? Sorry, but no it isn't.

The 8500GT can support 1920 x 1200 and even 2560 x 1600 via dual link DVI. And up to and including 2048 x 1536 at 85hz in analog mode.

It is the G86. It is the affected GPU from the nvidia failure gate... not only mobiles were affected, desktops too, only those were better cooled thus they have survived longer.

That depends on who you listen too. There were lots of reports of problems but all those reports trace back to the same The Inquirer article. NVIDIA denies it affects desktops and instead claimed it only affected certain notebook configurations. And Ars Technica could not find any evidence to suggest NVIDIA was not correct. If it really was the problem The Inquirer claimed, it would have been independently verified by other sources.

its just ghosting/motion blur, a lot of TV's suffer from that (i assume this is from the TV in his specs)

even my 4k samsung had it until i tuned it in.

Try different cable, make sure that everything is connected properly and that connectors are clean. If you overclocked your monitor to a higher refresh rate, put it back to factory/stock.
I had a flickering issue because I modified a few things and thus created issues with my previous Crimson driver. I fixed the problem by installing other GPU driver. I'm not saying that GPU driver is causing your problems, but trying another driver and preforming a clean (driver) install wouldn't hurt.

If you worked in the service center of a Toyota dealer, you might get the impression Toyotas are lousy cars because you see nothing but broken down Toyotas all day. Just because you saw a lot of bad chips, that does not imply all boards/cards using those chips needed replacing.

I am not denying there was a problem. I am just saying there was only one report (by The Inquirer) that went viral blowing the problem way out of proportion. If it was really as bad and widespread as The Inquirer (and apparently you) want us to believe, other IT press sources would have verified it, instead of just repeating what one source said.

I am not an official for PC hardware repair, I take requests from friends and and their friends often. It was a plague.

IF it was an Exaggerated Problem Stemming from one press Source as you say
Then how come Nvidia issued itself and through its partners a replacement/repair program
