Seeing a repairman does cut to the chase. Here are a few things you can try.

First, check your physical connections on the computer. Yes, I mean cables and power cords --to see if they are all firmly plugged in.

However, if you can google the symptoms that your computer is showing when you try to use it, you might get a helpful tip. --Or you might get into more trouble. IF you get your computer running, save any critical information to a USB stick before you take another step!!! That means documents, passwords, software keys, personal photos, bookmarks or favorites.

That said, if your computer can get to System Restore, you can try using a restore point date that preceded the problem. But before doing that, you might try uninstalling a recently installed program, rebooting, and seeing if the problem vanishes. Revo Uninstaller is good for removing programs. And, you can try running Malwarebyte's Anti-malware to see check for infection. Also, you might want to disconnect any new hardware that you have recently attached to the computer and see if the computer will then boot correctly.

Most computers have a recovery partition, that is, way of returning the computer to factory defaults, just as it was on the shelf before you bought it. That will erase any program or Windows updates you have subsequently installed. and you have to be prepared to reinstall such. You may be able to see a number of recovery options by repeatedly hitting F8 when your computer is booting. Using the last good registry can sometimes fix a problem.

Noe of these suggestions actually test the hardware. If your drive is making a clicking sound, it may have failed. If so, that hard drive is unlikely to rise from the dead. New HD or new compujter.

    Opps, I missed the processor part of the enquiry. Identify the current processor and motherboard specs, maybe download HWINFO and run it. You have to know if the new cpu is compatible with that motherboard. Check the manufacturer of the motherboard's website. Here are some procedures but this is probably work for a tech.

If you have replaced the processor and have fix it then suddenly after a while the display in your monitor is gone, the video card in your motherboard could have come loose.

Vertical lines on screen , is there a processor driver download to fix this problem

Vertical lines on a screen is not a processor problem, vertical lines is going to be a problem with the monitor or the video card. Try a different known working monitor on your computer and if the lines go away then you know that the original monitor is bad.

If the lines don't go away then try replacing the video card. If you have integrated video then the motherboard would need to be replaced. A processor driver download is not going to fix a vertical line problem.
