Hello Everyone, I just joined and this is my first post, I need some help with my brothers computer. I am the tech guy in my household and everyone in my family turns to me to fix there slow or infected PC. So now I have finally came across a problem I can't quite wrap my head around heres what happens, my bro goes to use his computer and the screen is freezes and there are three lines going across the screen two rows of green and red lines all the way across screen. He showed me and I checked it out I see nothing out of place. what could this be please help me, I am trying to help my brother out but im a little stuck any and all help would be very appreciated . I have done some recent fixs to his computer also I will explain that to. I had to wipe hard drive and re-install windows vista basic cause he had an access denied problem could not use flash drives or any thing but that was all fixed when I re-installed Vista. Then about a month later his computer started working up again and he had a CMOS 'checksum' error.I had to replace battery in motherboard and I reset the cmos to default and bios.
Then it worked again and he had no problems for about 24 hours. Then the current problem occurred the one I was first talking about and he can just reset it by holding power button and it will work for awhile then it always freezes at some point in the day. The other day he told me he started some windows updates and went to bed. He got up next day and computer restarted and was on login screen but frozen with the red and green lines across the screen. I have a picture of the desktop when the computer freezes so maybe if someone has seen this before or it has happened to them please some one help me out here My Mind is Blown I have no ideal what it is help would be much appreciated.
