If the squares are gone in safe mode it's safe bet that it's your graphics card driver. Uninstall drivers in add/remove programmes and re-boot your pc and see if the correct driver is re-installed. If at all possible it's best to use the driver from your notebook's manufacturer web site.

I have black and white lines running down the screen after I connected it to internet. How do I get rid?

Could be a lose cable, Check the cables connecting to the monitor (screen) and the to PC.

Also, made sure your phone or any other electronic device(s) aren't in close proximity to the screen. They sometimes cause interference.

Had a virus got rid off it but now screen is white and cannot do anything with it

A white blank screen? That sounds like the virus changed your display settings. Click Ctrl+Alt+Del to get to the task manager. Press and hold the Ctrl key plus the Alt Key then hit the Del key. When the task manager opens up Click File at the upper left corner of the window then select New Task RUN. When the create New Task Window opens type: explorer.exe and hit OK. See if it starts populating your desktop icons and shows the start menu and task bar. If so, the virus changed your settings.

To change your display background click Start/Control Panel and look for Display or Appearance and Personalization. When it opens select the Desktop tab and change the desktop background. Hopefully the white will go away.

You may have to get into Safe Mode to do the above if the virus disabled the Task Manager.

My computer screen has a big white box over the desktop icons How can I fix it.please ?????

is the white square on the desktop or floating as a separate window? Can you use your PC and programmes OK, but it just looks rubbish?

If the latter I suspect that there is some sort of custom desktop which has been corrupted.

To change it right click anywhere on the desktop and choose properties. The choose desktop and swap the current one from anything on the list. Save and the background will change. If it is as I suspect the white square will also have vanished.

Out of Range

the refresh rate of your computers graphics card is set either too high, or too low. right click on the desktop, select properties, go to the settings tab, and click advanced. then go to the Monito tab, and play around with the different refresh rates, until the picture will show up. This is usually, around 60 Hz or less.
