Hi, Over the past two months, I keep seeing lines accross my screens (I have two dell monitors - one is nearly 5 years old, and the other is nearly two.) for example, if I had a forum window open and I scroll down, then lines macthing the colour of the threads/replies will appear. I had to stop using the google chrome browser because It would go really strange, especially when watching YouTube the video wopuld turn into a kaleidoscope looking thing.
Anyway, I presumed it was my software as it was happening on both screens and I thought it was unlikely that both monitors would start to go faulty at the same time.
earlier today, I updated my Nvidea graphics card (I think it was graphics card anyway) Geeforce. I hadn't updated it since I first got my PC over 6 years ago.
Shortly after I updated it (around 10 minutes) a blue sceen came up saying -
"A problem has been detected and Windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.
Attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed.
If this is the first time you've seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps:
Check to make sure any new hardware or software is properly installed. If this is a new installation, ask your hardware or software manufacturer for any windows updates you might need."
This screen comes up every time I try to start up my computer, unless I run it in safe mode.
I wasn't sure what information to include, if there's anything that I should have included but haven't let me know.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
