I upgraded from windows xp to windows 7 ultimate 32bit the other day, and every time I start up the computer, it works fine for 15 minutes and then just crashes. It's not a BSOD, it's just a screen with lines all in it. The screens are different usually every time it crashes.

Also, after it crashes I have to manually turn it off then back on.

I didn't think this could be a virus.. it's a clean install of windows.

I've added a picture of what it looks like in the attachments.

If you need more infor just ask, PLEASE HELP!

OH yeah, the computer works perfectly FINE in safe mode, and I've run Malwayrebytes already (even though I just reinstalled the OS)

I think the problem is with either the video (graphics) drivers or the graphics card itself.

Are you able to use Windows normally (won't work in Safe Mode) long enough to get some more information for us?

Please Publish a Snapshot using Speccy, and post a link to it in this thread.

This is a convenient and accurate way of providing us with details of your computer specifications.
Q ... desktop computer or a laptop ?

I had a similar problem and corrected it by downloading my computer manufacturer original video driver for XP.
