    My screen was starting to show streaking and sometimes the screen would shift to the right so the image would start off center and the right side would be displayed on the left side. It looked to me like there was a problem with the video cards so I switched to the low performance onboard Intel GPU but it shows streaking. Is it a coincidence that all three GPU's are failing even though I only use this computer for web browsing? Now I wonder if something other than the video cards is causing the problem. Should I try replacing the drivers or checking connectors? I only use this computer for low performance applications so the Intel GPU is all I need.

    Thanks!

    I found a couple of good websites for diagnosing screen aberrations but now it looks like the LCD has failed so I think I will give up on this relic and move on.
