Thumbs down Monitor vertical lines
As of last night, my desktop PC - Packard Bell - is not sending the proper signals to my monitor. All I get are vertical lines. I've tried the monitor on my laptop and the monitor works fine. What do I need to do to remedy the problem?

Hi and welcome to TSG.

Do these lines occur from the moment you turn the PC on? i.e. even on the POST screen before Windows even starts to load?

If yes, then the most likely cause is a failed graphics card.
