Sounds like the monitor is going bad. I had this happen too and had to replace the monitor and it's been great since! If you can work fine, it's not the computer itself, it's the monitor.

Ipad 2 has a transparent line moving across screen

have you tried a hard ware reset?

turn off device, then hold the power button on top and the home key (make sure its not plugged in also)

keep Holding both keys... you will see the apple logo appear, and then flash off, and then it will restart again. If you keep holding the home key and the power key, it will continue in this loop. Holding it until it reboots once should be enough though, then just turn it on and let it boot normally.

Your settings and everything should remain the same, this just will reset the hardware on the device. I have had issues with my iPad 2 with games lately, mainly random crashing, when I do this hardware reset, it usually fixes my crashing issue for a while.

Once again the steps are:

Shut off device, make sure it is unplugged
Hold the Power button and home key, until the apple icon appears and then flashes off.
Let the device turn on normally, let go of home key and hold the power button till the apple icon appears, and let it boot up normally.
Test the application, this may or may not work. But its def worth a try.

Mine similar except the blue light stays on ,monitor goes black

Have you tested the monitor? The monitor could be faulty. Try hooking up the computer to another monitor or another computer up to that monitor if possible. If the monitor is testing good then make sure all USB devices are disconnected and try to boot again. Then open the case and blow out any dust. Check the motherboard screws are tight. If the screws holding the motherboard to the case are loose it can cause a grounding issue. Then swap out the power supply with a working one and see if that fixes it. Disconnect hardware one at a time and re-boot. One of the,harddrive,ect could be faulty. Make sure the video card is fully seated and test the card in another working computer or test a working card in that computer. If it has on-board video then install a video card if available and see if it works. If none of these things work then the board is bad and needs replacement.

I have a Sony Grand wega im getting fuzy purple diagnol lines

Try changing the component cable to your Video 6 and see if you have the same problem. I tried this and figured out that the set top box from Verizon component connections may be bad. I also tried changing to a different set of component cables to troubleshoot. I figure its the box not my TV.

Blue screen with error message on startup

Most likely problem is a physical problem with the hard drive, but could be plenty of other things. Best bet is to back up your information (if possible) and do a fresh windows install, if you continue to get the message after a clean windows install, your hard drive is not stable, and has a problem.

Blue screen on everything

Blue screen usually means no signal coming from the source. Did you accidentally hit the 'source' button on the remote, so it is now set to the wrong device (DVD player instead of the cable, for example)?

My HD50LPW62AYX2 RCA TV sometimes reverses the blue and reds. The peoples faces are blue, especially the lips.
Sometimes turning the TV off and then back on again fixes the problem. At other times this correction is good for only a second or two.
Do you have an English owner's manual available on line or otherwise available?
