I've accidentally knocked my computer over several times, but a few weeks ago it fell pretty hard. My computer worked for about half an hour, then froze and blue/yellow lines began to pop up on the screen. I restarted it, and it worked for a few hours that day. However, it would only work for a few hours, then freeze until I restarted it every day during the following week. After that week, it would freeze after a few minutes. Now, it freezes as soon as the Windows Vista logo appears during start up no matter how many times I restart it and the screen has blue and yellow lines on this. Can this be fixed or do I have to buy a new computer? Its only 2 years old and I have a windows XP in the garage I can take spare parts from.

In the assumption of a major impact, I'm guessing loose connection or damaged hardware.

I would strongly recommend de-assembling the system, part by part, check them individually and put them back together again. During this process, replace any component that shows physical damage or seems to be causing a problem.

Check these first: Video card, HDD

Depending on what sort of system you have in your garage, you could use some parts from it. Make sure they are compatible though.
