    Do the lines still appear in safe mode? It could be a monitor or graphics card problem.

    thanks for getting back to me
    in safe mode the lines do not appear at all :)
    it seems strange that it will do it during boot up and not in safe mode :(

    itreminds me of my oldspectrum and amiga when they used to crash!!!

    It may be a driver error try uninstalling the graphics card drivers in safe mode, then try booting into xp normaly. If that dosen't work i would suggest try another graphics card.
