I have two monitors running and lately they will freeze, then my computer restarts. I have sent my CPU to my Dads for him to take a look at. It has not frozen at his place. He was only running a single monitor though. Would this matter? Could my video card be biting the proverbial bucket? This is what the monitor looks like when it happens. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm afraid that's a graphic problem. Check that the fan is ok on your graphic card, it might just be overheating, and then try removing it and plug the monitor to the on board graphics at the motherboard, and re-boot.

Monitors have magnets. They can be distorted by interference. Move your monitors apart.

It may be as simple as your display setting are set too high. Have you adjusted them lately?

What kind of graphics card do you have - how much RAM and what do you use to control it? (i.e. Gainward EXPERtool or ?)
