I did both. I installed a geforce FX 5200 PCI. No joy. I put the LCD on my main rig with no change.

I do believe you nailed it. Everest has a diagnostic for monitors and will separate CRT and LCD. I ran that for about an hour-fixed dinner-came back and now there is a strip of vertical lines about an inch and a half wide of nice clear colors that remain even when I power of the computer. Looks like a doorstop to me. Funny thing was, I thought there might be some hope. During one part of the test-it was crystal clear. OH, well.
Don't tell robbie, but I'm willing to sell it cheap-you pay shipping of course!
