Windows 7: Strange & Sudden GUI Lines on Screen/Issues - Windows 7 64

08 Dec 2014   #11

Windows 7 64bit

Unfortunately, no, I haven't had an opportunity to try a different monitor. Not sure when I will be able to. I'll probably have to hit a friend up to borrow theirs.

I did indeed check all connections, etc.

No, the lines were not visible upon booting up, they all of a sudden appeared after a undetermined amount of time that the computer had been on/in use.

Another interesting thing that's occurred is after a good several hours of the PC being completely off I booted it up completely normally (aside from the boot screen telling me windows didn't shut down normally and giving me the options to boot into safe mode, safe mode with networking or normal being there) and I am currently using the computer right now with no distorted lines across the screen whatsoever.

So far, yes. I am currently running antivirus and malware checks to see if anything gets flagged.

I do take back a previous statement though. It was asked if the lines were visble during boot up and I said they weren't incorrectly. After the issue presented itself I did attempt a reboot before turning everything off for several hours and during the reboot process, before any Windows screen, the distortion was visible during the boot sequence
