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

I would suggest you try safe mode.
Safe mode is a troubleshooting option for Windows that starts your computer in a limited state. Only the basic files and drivers necessary to run Windows are started. The words "Safe Mode" appear in the corners of the display to identify which Windows mode you are using. If an existing problem does not reappear when you start in safe mode, you can eliminate the default settings and basic device drivers as possible causes.
If you don't know the cause of the problem, you can use the process of elimination to help you find the problem. Try starting all of the programs you commonly use, including the programs in your Startup folder, one by one, to see if a program might be the cause of the problem.
Follow the steps to boot the computer in safe mode with networking:
1. Restart your computer if it is powered on.
2. Tap the F8 key after your computer initially powers on.
3. Once you see the Advanced Boot Options menu you can stop tapping.
4. Use the up/down arrow keys to highlight your selection.
5. Select Safe Mode with Networking and press Enter.
6. You should see drivers loading, and then please wait.
7. You should then be at the Welcome Screen.
8. Logon to your computer using an account with Administrator privileges.
Burning dvd\'s is always a crapshoot when you have multiple machines. Computer drives are more tolerant on playback - the problem lies with your other, independent playback units. That is why in your main viewing area it is important that you have a few units so that if disk does not play in one machine, it will play on another. Has to do with the individual differences and calibrations of the machines involved. Store bought dvd\'s have less problems because their laser reflectivity is always higher than disks you burn, and therefore, easier to read properly. Price of the unit has no reflection on ability to properly read the disk. Sometimes and often, a cheaper machine will work better with copies - you never know.
