Text on my Mac pro's monitor is behaving oddly, with intermittent horizontal bars of static across the lines of text. I think it might be the video card. Is it about to die? [more inside]

Background summary -- Powerpoint - dual monitors (monitor + projector) We've bought little music videos (mp4 I think) and they play fine in a powerpoint show. But if we edit the thing in moviemaker to shorten it maybe or if we play something off of youtube then the resulting file won't play [more inside]

I do a fair amount of photo/video editing and would like to step things up with some new equipment. I'm going to replace my overheating, broken screen hinge laptop with a desktop and monitor, but I know nothing about gigs and ram and video cards. Any other suggestions regarding photo storage, organization, and editing software are welcome. [more inside]

I need to display the picture from a computer onto an old 1999 CRT television. I've seen a few products but all the reviews of them say that they don't work. Any recommendations on ones that do? [more inside]

Is integrating an Xbox 360 into an existing computer monitor/speakers setup worth it? Or should I simply get a TV? [more inside]

I need recommendations for a digital video recorder designed for multiple video inputs, including sound, (four cameras point at an animal enclosure at a zoo) that's designed to allow for easy access to the videos recorded. Networkable would be really great, or standard removable storage (USB/SATA). I'd prefer it if the device recorded directly in a standard video format so no conversion from a proprietary format is needed.

I have LCD displays I need to display video on, but they displays were made on the cheap and the colors display strangely. The screens have no brightness/contrast adjustment options. How do I determine the contrast ratio/gamma of these screens so that I can make adjustments to my video files? [more inside]

I just bought a pretty high-end Dell PC with a large LCD monitor.
It's got dual Core2 CPUs @ 2.66GHz, 4 GB of RAM, and a decent graphics card. The monitor is a widescreen 27" Dell Ultrasharp.
So far, I like the PC. But I was disappointed to find that the first PC game I tried (BioShock) runs TERRIBLY. The game does run pretty well on my slightly older PC, which only has a 19" monitor.
So, I think the large, widescreen monitor is the problem. Is that correct? Are there tricks to running the latest games on a large LCD monitor?
Many thanks in advance for any advice and insight.

My girlfriend has acquired a second-hand Sony Vaio PCG-C1VE laptop. The OS is Windows XP. Her problem is that she can't get the display out of 640x480. She's looking for display drivers, specifically video drivers and monitor drivers if such things exist - she can't find them anywhere.
Has anyone got any ideas?

My monitor started going light then dark, and now it's settled on a bit of both: in broad lines, according to whatever's darkest on that line, across any program showing. [more inside]

I'm looking for a simple LCD video monitor in the 10 to 15" range that takes S-Video or RCA input. It needs to have at least 640x480 resolution. I don't need an actual LCD TV with a tuner and sound. Just a video monitor.

What is the easiest way to eliminate computer monitor flicker (from the refresh rate) that shows up in digital video? I'm taping some people for a company documentary and need to shoot them at their computers.
