Why is this?

Spoiler: Show

I was doing nothing when I decided to get on my computer and I found a bunch of red, horizontal lines all over it. It was completely frozen, so I restarted it. When it came back on it had these vertical blue lines in a pattern across my monitor.

Geek squad is totally useless.

My computer is: Blah Blah quad core phenom Blah Blah Blah sound card nVidia GeForce blah blah 9800 GT (about a year and a half old) Other shit

Windows Vista 64bit

My drivers are updated. My monitor feed is going through my video card, and my computer is reading the hardware but says it has problems. Any game I open says it can't find a suitable video device.

I'm prepared to purchase any item I need, I just want to make sure it's the video card before I buy one.

Thanks in advance!

Try using an older set of drivers and/or Omega Drivers.

The "Roll Back Drivers" option is greyed out. The drivers hadn't been updated in about 2 months, and it's been working up until yesterday. I updated the drivers again today, no luck.

Get some older drivers, uninstall the current drivers, then install the older drivers. If they don't work, try Omega Drivers and follow the instructions carefully.

You sure your monitor cable and video card are seated fully, and didn't get bumped slightly out of place?

Looks like your monitor is going bad =/

that sure isn't a driver issue.

Omega drivers haven't been made since end of '07. Angel Trinidad, the author of them, ran into a family crisis when his wife came down with epilepsy.

The Soleutator;5237112You sure your monitor cable and video card are seated fully, and didn't get bumped slightly out of place?

This is actually the right question to be asking. Most of the time this problem is caused by the (DVI) cable being plugged in with some pins not making a good connection.

Unplug the cable, and then plug it back in again. If it starts working again then your fine. Otherwise it's likely to be a problem with the monitor.

As others said try different monitor or video card... esp the card, could be bad.
