I was playing GTA IV with ICEnhancer and everything got too hot and i thought I should probs turn off my computer and not use ICE anymore. All of the sudden it went into reboot and the lines were everywhere along with the option to start in safe mode. I think it has something to do with the hard drive but i'm not sure. I've already re seated it and stuck it in the fridge for about 2 hours but nothing works. my HDD is a 1TB WD blue, and my graphics card is a Geforce GTX 760. Even though I have a warranty (fairly new built computer) I don't want to re download all my games.

 

P.S. my capture didn't have the lines on it.. strange.

When you are able, try and start in Normal Mode if you can and then post a shot ......

 

If you do cool the unit down, it may start in Normal Mode and then run this check -

 

Please post a snapshot with Speccy for more system details -

As I do not use Steam OR any Download from any Torrent Site, I just take the word of the users - -

 

 

A direct qoute from the good folk at STEAM Forum Re : ICenhancer

 

""Before you do ANYTHING. Make sure you Have a Fresh Untainted (unmodified) Copy of your game. Just in case things go bad and we can't fix it.

Ok.

1.(Assuming your ICenhancer is in a .rar file) Double Click on the *.rar file containing your ICenhancer. Highlight All Contents and Click 'Extract To'.

2.Extract your ICenhancer files into your GTA IV Directory.
Steam: C:/Program Files/Steam/steamapps/*username*/common/GTA IV/GTA IV/

Retail: C:/Program Files/Rockstar Games/GTA IV/

3.Once Extracted, Have a quick look at the Readme file as it will tell you how to add/change extras like Light Shafts and Motion Blur and most likely have other little tips.

4. Launch GTA IV. Profit.

If you run into any Problems, Post back here with any error messages you get and I will try and help you.""

Are these lines grid lines - meaning like a big tic tac toe board?

 You say it's getting hot.  What are the temperatures when that happens?  I use SpeedFan for measuring, but there're others as well.  If your temps are getting over 50 degrees C, that could be your problem because excessive heat can change the performance of the tiny circuits.  Over 70 C can cause permanent damage.

I couldn't run GTA or any other game to test my temps. I got an error message saying, "Your video card does not support alpha blending with floating point render targets (D3DFMT_A16B16G16R16F_), which is required to run this game." It's Borderlands 2 I've run it before without any trouble.

 Download and run SpeedFan or one of the other apps to measure temps.  You can download SpeedFan here

The card being new only increases the chance that it has failed.  Most electronics will fail in the first 90 days. Normally if you can make it past that they last for their full expected life span.

 

What interests me is that screen shots don't show the lines, but actual display does.  This indicates a hardware failure.  I'm with Kirbyofdeath and think your video card is having issues.  The only other thing would be trying a different monitor, but the video card is more likely the issue.
