Hi all didnt know where to post this sry if its in the wrong area...

When I turn my computer on Windows xp pro there is 5-6 white lines across the top of screen kinda like glowing or something hard to explain....I have to restart then there gone. Do you think its my graphics card? is there any way to do a test to see if its going out ?

Try updating the drivers....or delete it from the device manager and reinstall it.

Does it do the same thing with another monitor?

Shut the computer down and unplug it. Pull the graphics card and reseat it. Also if it has a heatsink/fan attached clean the dust out of it and make sure the fan runs.
