Gray lines on screen

  • When I turned on my computer light gray bands of lines appeared (most noticeable on the white browser area. Also, the formerly black letters look "indented" and appear a dark gray.

    I have tried restarting the system several times and get the same result.

    Any ideas what could be causing this?

    Thanks,

  • try going to safe mode, if you still see the problem, try to hook up an external monitor. if you see the problem on the monitor, then it's the video card...if not...it's the lcd
  • Thanks for the suggestions. Sounds like I have problems either way. Guess my three year old system is starting to show it.
