Hi,

I turned on my computer today and found all these lines across my screen!

Here's a picture I took with my digicam because when I tried PrtSc it doesn't show the lines.

The lines appear as soon as I boot up my computer, not just when I log into windows. When I try to boot up the regular way, right after the Windows loading screen (the one with loading bar) it flicks off. I can get into safe mode though.

The lines are blue against a dark background and yellow against a light background.

Here are my system specs:
MS Windows SP2
AMD Athlon XP 1500+, 512 MB RAM

It was working just fine yesterday and the problems only started today when I switched my computer on. I don't think I installed or did anything the day before to cause this.

Any help is much appreciated.

Hi and welcome.

So you can't get into normal mode, just safe mode?

My first guess would be the video card died. You can try reseating it. If it has a fan on it, be sure that it is still spinning.
