My computer is now 14 months old, the problem that i have is when boot completes the top half of the monitor is black, as warm up takes place the black starts to become squiglly lines then it clears up, throughout the day as I go to different pages on the web the sqiuglly lines appear on the top portion of the monitor sometimes its ok, but its starting to get worse, Some say its the monitor, I don't think its the monitor, since I can turn a page and have a clear clean screen ,also when i enter a site the lines will be present as soon as i open another page lines go away, is this the sing of a bad graphics or video card? any ideas would be appreciated thanks Don :confused: :confused: :confused:

I would personally do a scan disk and a virus check....although there are many here with more experience then I, I would guess it's your video card....make sure it is firmly seated in it's slot...if this doesn't correct the situation, you probably have a bad video card
