    :confused: I've recently started getting a screen covered in gray lines followed by a blue screen with a few letters in the middle when shutting down our computer. What does this mean?

    If it's only happening during shutdown then you can probably rule out the monitor or other hardware.
    I'd start with the easy stuff first. Do a complete virus and Trojan scan.
    Then Scan Disk & Defrag.
    Also turn off unnecessary apps running in the background.
    Give this a try ( if you already haven't) and see what happens.

    Do you have an antivirus program scanning at shutdown?
