Aloha,
I have a lot of vertical lines on my monitor and it seems that if I reboot the system, it will go away. After a while, maybe hours, it will return again. It seems like it is the video board but am not sure so I will try to post a picture. Any help and suggestions will be appreciated. TIA

If the Video Card is not Onboard and the PC is not under warranty ....re-seat the Video Card and blow the Slot out with compressed air.

Aloha,
I cleaned out the inside of the computer and it was very dusty. I removed the video card and cleaned the fan and then reinstalled it. Powered it up and received one long beep and 3 short one's. Where can I look up these beeps?? It seems related to the video card so I removed it and replaced it and it still made the same beeps. I removed it again and cleaned the contacts and reinstalled it and it seems ok now. I can't tell for sure because it usually works ok for a while and then acts up. I'll see what happens in a couple of hours. TIA
