I picked up a GeForce2 Ultra on eBay. It's really a beautiful card, in perfect physical condition, but the VGA output is a little "messy" at certain resolutions. Specifically it's like parallel diagonal lines of greater then lesser brightness behind the image being displayed. These lines scroll across the monitor perpendicular to the direction they point in. Display output is still totally readable but the imperfection is noticeable enough to be bothersome, especially at the resolutions I want to use (I noticed that the issue disappears completely at 1600x1200 but I'm really interested in 1024x768 and below where it's bothersome.)
Since this is such a nice card otherwise, does anyone have any suggestions for how to resolve this?
I do have the ability to remove and re-solder a component or two if there were a known culprit.
