Question about Computers & Internet
While working on my computer, verticle blue lines appear and lock my computer. The lines are of various shades and i need to reboot my system.
Mine turned out to be a stuffed motherboard needed to be replaced

I'm just guessing but it sounds more like the video card than the monitor, as your computer freezes. I would try another monitor, if available, to see if it still happens. I would also open the computer and pull the video card and reseat it. If it's an "onboard" video, I'd suggest putting another video card in an empty slot to see if the problem goes away.
Otherwise, I'd suspect memory, or the motherboard itself. Have you had any lightning or major power outages lately? A surge suppressor is not necessarily proof against such things, as many believe.
