Yes, I can say without a doubt it is your video card. I have had that happen on multiple occasions. Replace the card and you are back up and running.

Inkjet printers do not like being left unused for long periods.
Some of the color print head may be blocked. Try several deep cleaning of the print head to see if it can clear the blocked print nozzles.
If none of this works then the print head needs to be replaced.
A new cartridge will not solve this problem.
NOTE the print head is not a cheap item, you may consider putting the money towards a new and better printer.

go into your bios and make sure that video memory shadowing is dissabled, Sounds like a faulty video card or damaged signal cable. I would lean more to the faulty card though, try installing a new one as I would say thats your issue if your getting artifacts on the screen before the OS has fully loaded.

OFC you could try new drivers both for your chipset of *********** board and the graphics card in the interim.

It laggs because the developers are idiots. They could not properly convert the game from Xbox to PC and they're not planning on fixing it.

Graphic card problem.


Your graphics card is bad. The reason you don't see it on your bios screen is because it is not displaying in the high resolution high color graphics. Once your card starts displaying high resolution high color, then you get the lines. You need to replace your graphics card.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

Bluish screen -


is it a greenish blue?..... if so you have lost your red signal..... check your monitor connectors for bent or broken pins...... usually happens after swapping cables or monitors on a computer..... you could also have a bad cable or monitor..... is the monitor a CRT or a flat panel.... loss of one color is very common on CRT monitors, and could be a bad solder connection on the CRT driver board, or a bad video chip..... flat panel LCD monitors don't usually lose a color, although it is possible.... the most common failures on LCD flat panels is total power supply failure (no power at all) or display matrix driver failure (colored stripes across or down the screen), but a cable failure is also possible, like i said above, check the connectors for bent or broken pins..... there are 3 rows of pins...... at the widest side of the connector, there should be at least 3 pins next to each other on that row (sometimes there are 5), the middle row should at least have 3 consecutive pins as well (and again, there are sometimes 5) the last row (the smaller side of the connector) should have at least two (but sometimes all 5) pins in it. the first row and last row of pins should line up vertically, and the middle row is offset a half a space, so from top to bottom, the columns of pins make a zigzag...... if the connectors are alright, then your most likely problem is the monitor..... if another monitor works on the computer, it's the monitor..... if another monitor has the same problem on this computer, then it is the video card (or the motherboard's video output, which is fixable by installing a video card)
