    I have an IBM Aptiva computer that someone sent to me but I am having problems with the video. I was losing parts of the screen and had lines all over the screen then it would freeze up. How can I tell if the video chip is bad on the mother board?

    It may be that you have the wrong driver. Do you know what your video card is? You should probably boot up in safe mode and remove the video and monitor from device manager - then you would want to add the correct driver and make sure that the refresh is correct in display properties.

    What type of monitor do you have? Many will take plug & Play.
