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.

Asrock 775dual-vista mac address are invalid in both cmos and flash'

reinstalling your os has nothing to do with bios, you are getting this message long before any hard disks are involved in fact the bios doesnt even have the interrupts running for the USB devices at this point, you'll notice this if you have a USB keyboard. The only possible solution is to flash or replace your BIOS chip - this is a LAST RESORT option. I dont recommend it if the system works other than the LAN. Your best solution is to install a network card in a free PCI slot, they are pretty cheap if you know where to look, heck even goodwill carries them in their 1$ computer junk bin thats where i bought a few of my 100baset cards (of course at your own risk) hope it helps

My screen has verticle lines and the colors are incorrect

Try your monitor on another computer (laptop or desktop), to see if the problem "follows' the monitor.

Try another monitor on your computer, to see if your computer's video-card is creating the problem.

Try a different "data" cable between your computer and your monitor, to ensure that all 3 "primary" colours are being transmitted.

Installing Graphics cd in AGP slot...

Usually you need to disable the on-board video/activate the AGP slot in the BIOS before adding the video card. (Check your manual for entering the BIOS - often hit F1 or F2 (or enter when prompted) as you start the computer before the OS starts loading.)

I have no idea how you see the BIOS information without a working video to start.

Memory bank 2 is dead, no visual from graphics card

1st -- assuming you did goto youre bios first and adjust where nessicary -- grafics set to AGP not PCI or Pallet snoop (off).
Memory banks running NON ECC ( most common ) ..
blaa blaa blaa -- read ur Bios Update notes -- memory compatability .. and or .. make sure it's seated firmly in its spot-or swap em see if it's the bank or the mem ... run memtest to confirm ..
all else fails or dont want to mess with settings ---
then simply

RE-FLASH with Older Bios ---- see if problem persists ! ..
