    ASUS VA32AQ Monitor Issue

    What's happening?

    Ran into a bit of a problem with my newest monitor because if I had no bad luck, I'd have no luck at all. I've had the monitor for almost a year, but literally used it for about a month before the problem materialized (long story, short version is that I was buying components on sale, but had to wait a long time for VGA prices to drop before I could finish building the entire system). The monitor was checked once purchased but then went into hibernation until I could find the VGA I wanted. This is as interesting as I can make this part of the story.

    Beside the point. Once I finally had the missing piece of pie, I began installing everything and updating Windows 10 (as you do to be cool like the other nerds). Last week I was updating Windows to version 1803 and these lines suddenly popped up on the screen. I was positive it was an issue with the VGA drivers which I installed prior to the update. Did a clean install of drivers again, but the problem remained. At this point I thought it was the card and I started freaking out. It was the end. I had my cyanide pill ready, and asked my family to throw me into a ditch and light me on fire after I've consumed my poisonous breakfast.

    But I noticed something. Once I powered off the PC and the "No Signal" message appeared...the lines remained. Had to be the monitor. I confirmed this by swapping cables from DP to HDMI, and then again by connecting the monitor to my other PC using that PC's cables. Every time the lines were there, thus confirming the VGA is fine and the monitor has the HIV. In addition to these lines, the monitor experienced some image retention. Two separate occasions images were ghosted onto the screen, but after some time disappeared. The lines, however, remained.

    Here are some pictures:

    May be a little hard to see the lines but this is the best camera I have at this time.

    Quick question to which I fear I already know the answer. Is this curable, or is it time to RMA?

    Thanks in advance for any replies.

    I'd like to deploy my troops in her country.
