The other day I did a clean install of my computer and I'm still getting these blue wavy and now yellow lines. I made sure windows was fully updated. I deleted the display driver and reinstall and I'm still having the same problem but much worst on start up the screen is full of letters smiley faces or it has these white lines like static (snow). I hook another computer screen to the computer and I still have the same problem. I made sure that the computer video card was install in it's slot and made sure nothing else was loose. Still the same problem. I'm guess that the video card is damage and needs to be replace. So what should I do try a new video card or just get a new computer?
