I know this was news last week, but I thought it needed a thread because
- there's reports Best Buy will start offering free upgrades from Vista to 7 on June 26. Everyone else will probably doing the same somewhere around the same date, so there's no sense in buying a new Windows based PC until the end of this month. Even if you're not looking for Windows7, I bet sellers will aren't doing the free upgrade will be marking down Vista OS computers just move them.
- for those who have been using the beta: is it worth doing an upgrade from XP, or it still something I should just wait to get a new computer to use?
You've got a CRT, right? Sounds to me like the monitor is shitting the bed. Either that or the cable is bad, and unfortunately, most cables are built in these days. Try the system with a known good monitor. I bet the problem will go away.
