Computer startup and running issues

Until a few days ago my comp has been running fine. I was playing a game called Savage then and all of a sudden the screen froze, but the sound was still running normally so I waited. Eventually after about 30 secounds I was able to hit escape and exit the game. I tried to see if there was some sort of virus, but even in normal Windows XP it would freeze for seconds at a time. So I restarted in Safe mode and when my computed booted there was a thousand vertical grey lines and when it got to windows loading screen they changes to vertical green lines across the whole screen. Anyways restarted again and managed to get into safe mode where everything seems to work fine. I ran spybot, adware, spysweeper, and a few other programs + I did a disk cleanup, defragmented both hard drives, but when I tried to see if all the labor paid off, my comp still has the green lines (which don't show up when and IF windows actually loads). I'm assuming its my graphics card (an evga 5700 ultra), but don't want to make any purchases unless this is actually the problem. PLEASE HELP!!1

Hello:

Try to remove the graphic card and then clean with soft clothe and then insert it again and test.

if same problem encounter, you need to replace the video card, since your pc is virus free.

considering the monitor, you need also to change the or test the monitor but its 10% that this a cause of the symptoms.

most probably the graphic card got faulty.

may this help,

My Benq monitor was working, then it suddenly went black and said Hdmi no signal. After a few hours, it started again fine, but when I tried to play a game, after a minute or so it went black and star


Check the signal cable connected in between monitor and system for firmness. Re-seat at both end once and check. If it does not help you, contact any service technician. Gopakumar Gopalan Google

Intermittent problems are always the hardest to diagnose but I would start by going to the device manager and deleting the sound drivers. Then a reboot and as your machine restarts it will reinstall the soundcard drivers and if the game has corrupted the drivers that should your your problem. Should it continue you will need to find updated drivers for Windows 7.

Panasonic AG-DVC10 Startup Issue


Most likely cause for this problem is defective power switch and defective record start/stop switch. The DVC7, DVC10 and DVC15 all use similar switches, and I have repaired all three.
