Hello, recently my computer has been crashing to a white or black screen with horizontal colored lines (colors are of whatever color screen i was on.) At this point i have to think this is a hardware issue and am suspecting my graphics card but want to make sure before i run out and buy another one.

Emachines EL1200-05w
AMD Athlon 2650
Nvidia Gforce 6150SE
2.7GB DDR2 Ram


Thanks

Sounds like the card. Overheating may be a problem. Make sure fans are turning (if any), dust is removed and vents are clear. If an add-on card, remove it from its slot and reseat it, especially if the machine has been moved.
