It can be a graphics card problem as this issue comes when there is no signal to the Monitor from the Graphics Card. Other issues might be damaged cable connecting the monitor to the CPU or when the graphics card is not properly inserted in the motherboard.

The problem is either the video graphics card in the computer or the monitor, if you have a backup monitor check the computer first, if the same problem persists the video graphics card is bad. If however the second monitor is fine, then your monitor is the problem, The screen is breaking down, if you have a detachable video cable, sub it for another to make sure there are no issues,if okay your monitor is the problem and not cost effective for repair.

Try booting it into single-user mode holding down Command(Apple) and S buttons when powering up. Then in terminal console, use chkdsk -fy. Use it and use it again until comes back with something like "Volume appears to be OK". Then use command: mount -uw / and then type reboot and try booting normally.
If it does not fix your problem, it's most likely a hardware issue (logic board / graphics card), and you should take it to an Apple Authorized Service Provider.

This is a damaged onboard graphics module. Unfortunately it needs replacement. if you have a graphics card inserted then you can simply install another one. If you buy a different type. ensure you install all the drivers from the install disk before you turn off machine and swop out the cards.

Motherboard or on-board graphics card failure

I had the same kind of stripes on my hp dv9000. I read in forum that it was a heat problem, that loosens the soldering on the GPU chip.. I wrapped it into a towel for approx 30-60 min.. That removed the stripes in bios screen..

Stripy Boot Up

is it a new graphic card? Sometimes that happens when the graphic card gets overheated and fries up some chips. and sometimes those lines appear when the graphic card has fault in Direct Draw. Try setting your BIOS settings to default. if it doesn't work, i recommend you to take the graphic card to the nearest hardware tech ;)

Hi Pat, Sounds like a faulty video card to me. If the machine or video card is still under warranty talk to the manufacturer as they should replace any faulty hardware. If it's not under warranty I would suggest you swap the video card with another one if you have one or replace it entirely. Good luck, Bernard
