  1. I'm not familiar with these chat rooms/ bullentin but I figured I would give it a try. I hope everyone had an enjoyable holiday.

    I just experience a major problem with my computer tonight, I believe it is a graphics/video driver problem, but I'm not sure. I had lines in my computer for a while and tonight out of the blue, my screen turned white with multiple lines and then totally black. I tried to restart my computer, but when it rebooted from the Windows screen, the black display reappeared. What should I do? What could be the problem HELP!!!

    Symptoms like that usually mean it's the card itself that is having problems rather than the driver.

    If it's an old card then it will probably need replacing.
