If I am in the wrong forum, could someone please redirect me?
As I write this my screen is breaking up with increasing numbers of roughly 5cm and 10cm long horizontal lines. This happens after the computer has been on for a few minutes. The screen also blacks out and then comes back to life. If I turn the computer off for a while and reboot I get a few more minutes of a readable screen again, as if cooling down is beneficial.
I have a Dell Dimension 8200, P4, 512MB, 64MB DDR Nvidia Geforce3 Ti500 with TV Out, bought in February 2002.
Does anyone know what is likely wrong? Age of graphics card, hard drive? The computer is making a bit more noise than usual, a sort of deeper whirring sound.
Your help is much appreciated.
