hello everybody

ok here is my problem. i have a old desktop i use all the time but lately i get red vertical lines on monitor and my desktop completely locks up and i cant restart, i have to wait a bit then i can restart it and within minutes it happens again. i noticed i was keep getting port attacks from attept hacking but my firewall detected and stopped it. now i wonder if that has anythign to do with it or if my video card onboard just gone bad.

any ideas?

many thanks

p.s am using my laptop to post here lol

hi there,

you are using a laptop

that's great

you can make a test now

plug the monitor to your laptop and see the result

and if same issue then change the screen

Thanks
