I have been having problems for a while, First off DVD playback video would not show just flashes of interferance & sound. Then TV tuner now does not show pictures only sound. But the Bad problem now is that if you Reboot coloured lines appear on the System check page as well as letters being different colours! When it gets to the Windows XP (sp2) page Blue vertical lines apear as well from top to bottom. After that you get 2 wide white vertical Stripes & 2 wide black vertical stripes. Then the monitor turns off, System still running. If you try to reboot again same problem! But if you allow the computer to cool for 30min or more then it is OK.
I've run all the normal System maintainence programs & Spyware programs.
What could be my Problem? HELP!
