Hi all, My friend's laptop has vertical and horizontal lines across the screen, making lots of blocks across the screen. http://i143.photobucket.com/albums/r126/_Absinthe_Minded_/clip_image002.jpg See an image of the problem by clicking the above link. The effect isn't very well captured but look at the task bar and you can see it really well there. Any ideas what the problem might be? Thanks for looking and for any help you can offer. AM.
