Before the graphics problem occurred my pc had beeped with the code of RAM error. 

I fixed the RAM and the pc doesn't beep anymore but now I can't see anything!

The screen is covered with purple, white and green vertical lines.

I checked my graphics card and removed some dust it had but it still continues!

Any help?

 

Edit:

Graphics card : Nvidia Geforce 6150se nForce 430

2GB DDR2 RAM (1GB RAM on 2 slots)

Hello 

 

Is your computer a Desktop or Laptop 

 

 

 

Have you recently updated the graphic drivers.

Short of reseating the graphics card I don't know what to say at this point. You'd have to boot into the PC somehow, so try to wiggle the card in a bit. You don't get anything, not even bios at boot time?

The Nvidia Geforce 6150se is actually not a graphics card, it is basically a onboard graphics. When there is purple, white and green vertical lines, it is a indicator that it could be caused by the onboard graphics or a graphics card.

It started after I fixed my RAM issue I must've unplugged something by an accident i'll check

Yes its onboard graphics forgot to mention that

I'll try this and I don't know if I do reach the bios cause the screen is covered completely

EDIT 2:

If possible can I change the graphics card if there is nothing that will work?

You don't have a graphics card as that picture you took is a CPU cooler and under that is the CPU itself :) Chances are that the onboard graphics is dead  but luckily you can simply add a graphics card which should solve the problem.

I agree with killerx525, that looks like a complete failure on the on-board graphics. I dont think that the video cable is to blame.

 

To add or recommend We would need to know motherboard specs if you can give us any identifiable motherboard  name or computer model number  and the Power Supply wattage

Your power supply is a 250W which would be enough for this graphics card.

Sorry to say it appears from the pictures you posted that the motherboard itself is bad.

 

Attached File  bad caps.jpg   52.03KB   13 downloads

 

Do you see the parts I have the white arrows pointing at? They tops should be flat and clean. Yours appear to be bulged up. That is the sign of a bad capacitor.

 

If they are bulged up that is the most likely cause of your problem. They can be replaced but it isn't Inexpensive. They only get worse. I hope it is just the picture and that the tops are really flat.

 

Good Luck

Roger

www.badcaps.com  or http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capacitor_plague to read more about the problem

 The fact that Badcaps have a kit of parts available tells me that it is a common problem with this motherboard. Their forums have a lot of helpful people Who could advise You as to repairing the problem.

 

Good Luck

Actually caps themselves are fairly cheap and replacing them needs you to know just how to solder two points together, as long as you can find the value of the caps you're not into much deep water there if you want to go that route. Personally I'll get a graphics card from a local store (one that you can return) and try that first. Since we're talking something like $30-$40 (I won't advise top of the line there) you should not be out of much $. 

How did you fix your ram issue? 

For s***s and giggles, if you have old RAM, try booting with that or take each of the sticks out and try booting - sometimes failing ram or ram that might be drawing too much current from the PSU might manifest itself with what you're seeing. 

Looks to me like you have an open PCIe slot for one graphics card on there also there's an open PCI slot if you want to put in an older style GPU.
