I turned on the computer one morning, and it will turn on, and go through the boot screen and the windows loading screen, but then I just get a black screen and the Welcome screen never shows up. Oddly noted that there are vertical lines every 3/4" or so on the screen. So then I decided to reinstall windows. After install - says "Loading Windows" or something similar and then reboots. There are still vertical lines (which points to hardware issue?)
I know it's not the monitor - I tried different monitors and had the same problem. And suggestions? Thanks!
