    Looks like Video card issue
    If this is an addon Video card, please try physically removing and then refitting the card.
    You may need a new video card

    Hi, Im 99.9% certain you have cracked your screen im sure i can even see a couple of fracture cracks in the bottom right hand corner. Try a new screen or borrow one from a friend, but im certain thats your problem.
    Good Luck

    Yes try another screen (Yes it does look cracked to me too)

    But still can be the video card even in bios (ie the video card is still running)




    unrelated to here:..
    @ cpu2008 I removed a reply of yours to a thread in Feb this year you just made, because the post directly above, stated to run the exact same program (Malwarebytes) Do not reply to old threads, unless adding something useful.

    Edit:
    @ cpu2008 I removed another reply of yours to a thread that 3 posts preceeding yours stated the same thing! Do not reply to threads, unless adding something useful. Again!

    Ok, so a sure fire way to see whether or not your screen is cracked would be to turn the pc and screen of and then look at the screen close up, i would use a torch up closer and try to see if there are any cracks. Also, if your motherboard has onboard vga, then plug your monitor into that and see what happens, at least that way you can eliminate any gpu problems.

    Hmm we may have found out how it first happened !

    By the way physical anger is never a good option
    Especially on Monitors that can explode !

    Thanks for the update :grinthumb
