Would appreciate any feedback i could get on this. recently computers been freezing with horizontal lines. I thought this was just happening when trying to load an Internet page, but now it seems to be happening regardless of that.

When running in safe mode, there's no crash at all. I've tried running with low pixel / color definition in regular startup... Still crashes.

- Cleaned out dust / grime on board etc
- reapplied thermal grease
- updated all drivers
- system restore
- memcheck

It's an ms-7309 mobo, win xp home, 2g ram, plenty of memory, Athlon 64 x2 dualcore processor.

I'm thinking there's an issue with the onboard graphics card... Is that a safe assumption?

One assumption is as good as another...the trick is to test whatever can be tested and see if it corrects or identifies the problem :).


I would start with uninstalling the current video drivers, via device Manager, then rebooting and reinstalling the video drivers from the motherboard CD.
