We weren't able to play our games and installed a GeForce graphics card, hoping that would solve the problem, but our computer display is as erratic as ever.:eek: When we "try" to get a game to play it shows up as horizontal lines on the screen and then the screen freezes up. Other times we'll get four verical patches of color on the screen and nothing else. Or else only part of the "display" shows and the rest of the screen is black, and then there the times when the start menu is on the top with a blue line under it and above the rest of the screen.:confused: And often when just trying to get the freakin computer to show Any disply it either freezes up, or the screen is distorted. Here is our system, any advice or ideas?:talker: :) : Operating System System ModelWindows 98 SE (build 4.10.2222) No details availableProcessor a Main Circuit Board b750 megahertz AMD Duron 128 kilobyte primary memory cache 64 kilobyte secondary memory cache Board: ASUSTeK Computer INC.

I've heard of a few things that could be the culprit...

1. AMD 750mhz is old, and they DO GET HOT!. Hot enough that if it gets warm in the house, such as when the heater is running in the winter, It'll cook it so bad, this problem will be permanent. Try putting it over an air-conditioner, or outside in the cold, with sufficient snow/rain/dew portection.

If it works then, you know whats wrong.

2. Windows 95/95 and Me, have been reported to become unstable after more than 3-6 months of regular use. They are reported to become Nearly unsuable after 2-3 years, if they still work at by that time. Try a Fresh reinstall of Windows (preferably after a reformat, but that would delete everything on your computer).

3. a Virus could make the PC unstable, this could be the result...

4. Surge type incendent. Such as a sudden loss of power to the PC, or a sudden rise in Power.

Surges could be caused by Thunderstorms, if the PC is plugged into an outlet, or buy turning off a Fridge, or Water Heater, or Washing Machine, or multiple items within a 4 second gap, while the PC is running.
