So before I went to bed I noticed that my computer was acting a bit slow, upon checking the memory usage I saw that the RAM was being maxed (I have 12 gigs at 1600 mhz.. I simply reset the computer and thought nothing of it. Upon waking up the next day I found that my monitor had red lines all over it. The red lines persisted even during the initial bootup of the computer (red lines displayed even in bios settings). I swapped out the video card which did not change anything and tried different sticks of RAM (3 in total, tried running each one separately) still did not fix it.
