Weird vertical line problem? Tags: Radeon Graphics Cards Graphics Last response: February 14, 2013 4:15 AM in Graphics & Displays Share Enderfox February 3, 2013 5:43:24 AM I just recently bought and built a computer. Every now and again for no apparent reason the screen will turn to vertical lines. It once went completely black. Example : http://i.imgur.com/ueL8MKk.jpg When it happens the sound will sometimes continue and at others it will shut off completely. I looked around the forum and saw some threads about it possibly being the monitor or even the video card. Any help will be appreciated. Not sure what is needed but some specs are as followed. CPU : AMD FX-6300 - 3.5GHz Video Card : Radeon HD 7850 RAM : 8gb Currently using a TV as my monitor through a HDMI cable. Thank you kindly.

Troubleshooting: This type of troubleshooting is basically about SWAPPING components. First of all, to determine if it's your TV or Computer you need to hook your computer up to a monitor. If your graphics card is still under Warranty you may wish to simply contact the manufacture about the issue and see about an RMA. m 0 l Enderfox February 4, 2013 6:24:09 AM Thank you for the response.
