Boot the PC, keep tapping F8 until you get options, choose safe mode, the screen icons will be bigger, but you just want to see if the brown lines are there

Items in blue which are underlined are clickable to give more information about the process

Download and install Everest Home Edition

Run the programme, click + next to computer then summary

Look on the right for display / video adapter / Monitor

Look at the manufacturer’s site for the suitable drivers for your Operating System


If you are unable to find them, please post the make and model here before you download anything

Please set a system restore point before you install anything
