Hello there
First things first:
1) uninstall the express maintenance program
2) go to CHECKPOINT recovery and select a date before you install this software. restart your OS.
3) change (if apply) the video driver, for a new one. depending if you got NVIDIA, or ATI video card.

I have unreadable lines across my screen


Hi You need to try using different monitor/lcd to find out if the cpu or the monitor is the problem
- If the screen on the monitor will work fine after using a different monitor or lcd it only means that the cpu is working properly and also it means that the problem is the the monitor/lcd and you need to bring it to the repair center or you need to replace it.
-If the screen on the monitor will encounter the same problem it means that the integrated video inside your cpu is busted. if your computer is still under warranty you better call the manufacturer.
-Also you can try the safe mode. after switching on the computer press repeatedly the F8 button on your keyboard and it will direct you to the diagnostic menu of windows and all you have to do is to choose SAFE MODE and hit the enter button then you need to wait until the windows load if the appearance will work fine it means that you need to reinstall the software driver of video graphics adapter.

After 15 minutes horizantal black lines appear on moniter


Welcome to Fixya.

Few of the top reasons for causing these "lines" running across the screen are :
  1. Corrupted video driver
  2. Changes in hardware configuration (display)
  3. Monitor issue (hardware)
In order to determine if it's hardware/software issue, all you need to do is to boot to BIOS and check if the problem replicates. Depending on system, you can go to the BIOS screen by tapping "F2" or "DEL" key repeatedly as soon as you turn on the computer until you see a different screen.

If the problem is present while in BIOS, then definitely the monitor needs to be repaired by an authorized repair center. Otherwise, video driver update or Operating system re-install can resolve this problem.

Here's DELL's support site for more information :

Horizontal line appearing on desktop


The fault looks like white lines horizontally along the screen. These are the retrace lines that become visible due to absence of proper screen/grid voltage. You will need to open the monitor only if you are familiar with power electronics, a bit of experince is important as the stages are delicate and contains high voltage. If not take help, check for faulty capacitor or low value of resistors in the screen/grid sections of the crt. Couple across parallel to the suspected capacitor to confirm and change. Use a meter to see the voltage across faulty resistors. In some cases reducing the screen potentiometer ( onthe Line output transformer)can solve the faulty. Hope you try. Good day

Lines on screen


This happened to me once too. It is something with the monitor, which needs to be cleaned inside, that is all. Just take it to a mechanical store and they will fix it
