Last thursday my computer monitor began displaying these thin black horizontal lines in a blinking type fashion. Almost like a regular tv would when it is about to go out. Then it became worse, now my screen looks heavily pixilated in spots and it turns off (the green on button turns orange) for at least 15-30 seconds at a time.
From what I read, it could either be my monitor or graphics card. I bought a brand new monitor and the same thing happends. I was told by one of the geek squad guys at best buy that if it's the video card, then it would show the same signs while in safe mode. I'm in safe mode now and nothing is wrong.
Can anyone help me on this one? I would like to try to fix it myself if at all possible because I can't squeeze pc repair in our budget at this time
