    thanks for the reply's but i just connected the screen on the m2 and it was still the same
    i used power from a connector to put in a harddisk or dvd player
    i dont have any idea whats the prob, because when i power the computer on a battery thats not connected to the whole system , i mean the audio/car ignition / etc
    then i dont see any stripes, nothing its perfect even when my engine is started
    so i think maybe it something has to do with the m2 or the fans could that be possible ?
    i hope its a bit clear how i try to explain it

    the ground was made on the frame of the car ,
    now i made the ground of the m2 to the battery itself
    and the ground of the screen is on the m2
    it has improved indeed but the stripes are still there
    i will try to put a filter between it or something hopefully is gone then
    thanks for the help again

    Also check if you have anything with sever radio or magnetic interference near the screen. Sometimes just the frame of the vehicle can bring magnetic interference to the screen.

    The key to the solution is: power from the car = stripes. Power from house current = no stripes.

    You have a power supply issue. Do any power wires run near the VGA cable for the screen?

    Try one of those ferrite chokes on the power cable if you don't have one already.

    well the strange thing is , when i only feed the computer with a external battery there are no stripes, but the screen is on the car battery
    so is it still a power problem ?
    and there is no power cable running next to the vga cable
    also allready a ferrite choke on the cable but that also didnt gave any result

    You have two batteries, right? Are both batteries grounded to the same place?

    first battery is grounded on the usual place thats the factory battery, the second battery is grounded in the back on the chassis
    not on the same place but ofcourse on the same ground if thats what u mean ?
