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!
