What are u using for connection to monitor? DVI? Check for bent pins?

What color are these lines?

Can u take a screen shot, to see if it is caused by the LCD or the input signal.

Keep pressing F8 button during the BIOS start up, to get in the safe mode.

by the way when i got the board it was slightly flexed but very weak and maybe it has fractures in the copper pathways and could this be caused by not having a i/o sheild

Try this command-line diagnostic utility for power problems.
Go to Start > Run, type cmd, then type powercfg -energy
This will generate an HTML file and so check the report for problems.

It is the monitor, some pixels in the screen have gone bad. I've had 2 LCD monitors that did the same thing.

Usually, I blame the video card but if the same thing happens with two different video cards then you can only blame the monitor.

If you got onbaord video out then try the cable on that to the monitor, to confirm.

(You might have to set the BIOS to onboard VGA)

Even so, it is still the monitor that is at fault. not the GPU's. Perhaps you could connect to your TV?
