The screen went black and now it has alot of lines across it

I was playing a game on my laptop and the screen went black for about a minute then it went to the blue screen saying there is a technical error with the display, now when i try to turn the computer on the screen is black but it has alot of colored lines across the screen and it booted all the way up once but it looked like it was in safemode or the graphics card wasnt working because everything was really big but it still had colored lines all over the screen. what can i do to fix this if i cant even boot the computer and see the hp logo screen

    Was this game played off the internet from an unreliable source? Because to me from your desciption it sounds like a virus attack. You may have to reboot the machine off the installation CD or if you call it restore cd off the Op Sys CD and reformat the partition It does not sound like it is permenent damage just bit off some bytes

    Hi, Please confirm once you press power is it able to boot.. If yes try to go into safe mode and remove the display driver. Once it is done, you can boot in normal mode, I understand in normal mode everything will be very big. Install the display driver again and reboot it.

Sounds like a bad video card.A video inverter could cause distorted graphics but usually it turns out to be the graphics card.

ASUS VX2-AK008G Video cardNVIDIA GeForce 7700 gone bad after playing a video game. Can it be replaced? Will better model such as GeForce 9500 be compatible replacement model for the notebook?


I have the exact same problem! Never downloaded or did any changes to the software - it just suddenly wouldn't show anything on the screen when starting the machine. Could hear everything just fine, but the screen just went black. I connected it to an LCD flatscreen TV and there I saw Windows appearing, but there were strips/lines across the screen. The computer drive works fine - it's the graphic card. I've read many others having the exact same problem... Any solutions out there yet, anyone?

XB360 Screen colour changes and then disappears


Could possible be your television.

Or maybe your Xbox is overheating.

Try placing your Xbox in a cool spot, direct a fan at it, etc.

Or try getting a new TV or Xbox.
