When I boot up the machine vertical lines appear during start up and it wont boot? At the boot screen I have these columns of vertical white lines and after that the monitor goes black and windows dont load up. If I boot up in Safe Mode, windows loads normally and no lines or graphical distortion appear on the screen but I can never get to windows without being on safe mode.
The first time this happened I was using Adobe After Effects CS3, the entire screen kept freezing every two or 3 minutes then it became more Intense and the whole computer just froze and I had to shut it down. Thats when I saw the vertical lines on the screen for the first time. I never had this kind problem before when I was playing games or using programs like Particle Illusion and Adobe Premiere, I somehow managed to get it working by clearing the CMOS.
I then decided to reinstall windows and again the same thing happened after installing After Effects, I had AF loaded up and after a couple of minutes the screen kept freezing until I had to turn it off manually. I have tried clearing the CMOS, changing the Ram, disconnecting all my hard drivers and cd drives but it just wont go back to normal, since the lines are not showing in safe mode I assume is not an issue with the monitor, and it also happens with my other monitor.
Thanks for reading, and I hope you guys can help me out.
