While browsing the internet (I was on YouTube) vertical lines as well as smaller appeared on my screen, which you can see linked below. I can tell you the following, my monitor seems to be fine and all the connections are secured. When I bring up the configuration menu (by pressing the button on the monitor) it is unaffected and is clear. The lines are visible when the computer first starts up.
If this means anything, I have a Radion 9800 pro series video card.
I have tried a system restore and the lines do not go away.
I have secured the cords.
I have restarted my computer.
I suspect its a hardware issue rather than a software issue
I could really use help here, and any ideas and advise will be much appreciated.
I am glad to post any information you would also need to know
Here are the pictures that follow (sorry for the bad quality):
