Horizontal white lines on monitor.


Recommended Posts

Hello all.  I'm having an issue with my computer and I'm not sure if it is due to hardware or software.  

I'm now have white horizontal lines on the screen and I can't boot into windows.  After the Windows 10 boot/splash screen my monitor sits there cycling though HDMI and Analog looking for a signal.  I think Windows just did an update not long ago, maybe a few days, but I just used the computer yesterday and it wasnt like this. I have a GeForce 480 graphics card, and it is about 8 years old.

Thinking it is either a graphics driver issue, a graphics card issue, or a Windows issue. 

I finally was able to get Win10 to start in Safe Mode but it is asking for a password and I don't ever remember putting a password on my computer other than a Pin# and that isn't working.  I'm going to try and post a picture of what the screen looks like, but I'm on my phone and it might not work.

If this is a card issue I might need suggestions for a new card that is around $200, since that is about all I can afford right now.
