Question about Computers & Internet
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
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,
