hi everyone. whenever i start up my computer, i'm getting these strange green verticle lines on the windows start up screen. they are in groups of four and are spaced out all across the screen like a grid.

this is what my start up screen looks like. then when windows is running, i four turquoise lines follow my mouse cursor around. normally it wouldnt bother me, but it also seems to slow down my computer and i cant play any games on my computer. sometimes i can jiggle where the monitor plugs into the back of my computer and it temporarily fixes it, but lately this has not worked. any ideas as to what this could be or maybe how to fix it?

These may be for calibrating the monitor. Try your monitor settings to see that calibration isn't enabled. Or there may be someting wrong with the monitor enabling it when it isn't suposed to be.

i'm sure its not the monitor. i hooked another monitor up to it and its doing the same thing. i asked a friend about it and he said my graphics card might not be getting enough power, so i downloaded a program to see the power readings in my computer and the voltage in the wires is way down, often half of what it should be. could this be the problem?
