Q: Windows 10 update results in blue screen with white lines

Windows has been working perfectly on my machine but then in a recent update last month one of the big ones where the screen goes black with a percentage circle of the installation progress the same one as when you upgrade from a previous version of Windows after results 10 Windows screen update white with lines blue in a while the screen Windows 10 update results in blue screen with white lines goes a light blue colour not the BSOD with white lines in the middle of the screen I presume it is a problem with the graphics driver so I have set the option to not update drivers automatically but the problem still occurs when the PC forces the update automatically Has anyone else come across this issue It is a work PC so I'm loathed to do a fresh install as that will take a morning out of my hectic work time nbsp Then I have to use the F key and roll back to nbsp before the update which then takes another hour or so out of my time Why it can't just update in the background like the old days I don't know Any help would be appreciated My frustration is seen in the photo below

Preferred Solution: Windows 10 update results in blue screen with white lines

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi all, I'm sure my specific issue has been covered, but this is my problem:

I restarted my computer due to running slowly, when it was starting back up, it prompted me to either "Run Startup Repair - recommended" or "Start Windows Normally." When opting the latter, the screen would go black, then go back to the same prompt. When selecting the startup repair, the screen goes to a blue screen with squiggly white lines with a hummingbird and a branch on it (wtf?!) and stays there for a long, long time. Is this repairing? How long do I wait? Is there anything I can do?

I've also tried restarting and trying F8 to get to Last Good Configuration, but that doesn't work either Please help!

Blue screen is a screen for when your computer crashes but no hummingbird. You can check by going to c:\windows\minidump and seeing if there are files with the extension *.dmp. If so upload them to us.

No DMP files included in upload please try this method

We do need the DMP file as it contains the only record of the sequence of events leading up to the crash, what drivers were loaded, and what was responsible.

You may be able to get the DMP files without crashing by booting into safe mode (F8) with networking.

To enable us to assist you with your computer's BSOD symptoms, upload the contents of your "\Windows\Minidump" folder.

The procedure:

* Copy the contents of \Windows\Minidump to another (temporary) location somewhere on your machine.
* Zip up the copy.
* Attach the ZIP archive to your post using the "paperclip" (file attachments) button.
*If the files are too large please upload them to a file sharing service like "Rapidshare" and put a link to them in your reply.

To ensure minidumps are enabled:

* Go to Start, in the Search Box type: sysdm.cpl, press Enter.
* Under the Advanced tab, click on the Startup and Recovery Settings... button.
* Ensure that Automatically restart is unchecked.
* Under the Write Debugging Information header select Small memory dump (256 kB) in the dropdown box (the 256kb varies).
* Ensure that the Small Dump Directory is listed as %systemroot%\Minidump.
* OK your way out.
* Reboot if changes have been made.

Hello, I received my laptop today from ebay and I expected it to work 100% and the screen is not showing how it is supposed to be. Is there an attempt on fixing this to make it work back to normal? It only shows red on the blacks and light blue one white.

Here is an example:

I would return it ASAP, looks defective to me.

As the title says.

On my new laptop, i use the M.2 drive slot with my Samsung 950 Pro, UEFI boot mode

Yesterday, i tried to connecto my old drive (Win10). After i replugged my M.2 drive and disconnected the Win10 HDD, i got the following screen at boot :

Since then, the machine cannot proceed to desktop unless i press Ctrl-Alt-Del.

Safe mode hangs at ClassPnp.sys

Safe mode boot with boot log enabled does not produce ntbootlog.txt in C:/Windows

Thank you in advance for your help.
PS : If the hang issue is not relative to BSOD sub-forum, please inform me to move thread.

on my 26" samsung LCD tv, which i use as a moniter.. when i move things around those white boxes in the screenshot appear, it seems as if the screen is ripping apart... also white/red/blue lines keep flickering all over the place on the monitor, especially on dark colours... whats wrong?

A:White/Red/Blue Lines flickering and other problems

Try taking your Graphics Card out if possible, if it works when you take that out then get it replaced either if its under warranty or buying a new one.

If that doesn't solve the problem try using a different Monitor, if this Monitor works then obviously get your Monitor replaced by Samsung

Hi White screen lines PC the across I just bought a new PC It have two GPUs one on I cpu and GeForce GTX After new installation of Windows everything was ok I have installed all drivers for the motherboard and for the GPU I started to have problems when I wanted to try to play any White lines across the PC screen newer games I installed DirectX drivers and some Windows Redistributable Packages before running the game Just when the game menu should open I lost signal on my monitor I could here the sound but there was no signal So I have rebooted the PC Since then I have white horizontal lines across the screen They White lines across the PC screen appear from the beginning of the booting process Also in BIOS I heared from my friend that the cause can be White lines across the PC screen possibly that the game changed my resolution and refresh rate for HD HZ and high resolution which my older - years monitor can t handle So here are the thing which I tried to do for now - I uninstalled the drivers with software designed for this purpose both in normal and in safe mode and installed them again There was no difference Even when there are no drivers I get white lines - I downloaded drivers from nvidia website and installed them but since then I get in normal mode not white lines but big white squares big white quot pixels quot and the screen freeze few seconds after logging in to windows In safe mode I have white lines - I run the PC in low resolution mode I have white lines or squares but the screen don t freeze However it doesn t solve anything at all In this mode I tried to change settings of nvidia drivers PPM on desktop but I see they are set for resolution or below and Hz at least in low resolution mode When I enter resolution settings the only refresh rate I can set is quot default quot When I go back to normal mode I get big white squares again and freeze - I removed the GeForce card entirely from the PC and booted without In this case PC uses GPU on CPU and everything is working well - no white lines When I plug the GeForce again in the PC - lines again - I can t check settings of GeForce card drivers and do anything with them when the card is out When the card is inside in normal mode where I could do something I get freeze after few seconds So my question is how can I check if the HD resoluton and refresh rate is the problem and how to change it preferably not in normal mode Best regards Volriker nbsp

Since yesterday I have been seeing white lines across the screen of my laptop. I have a Sony Vaio CR120E early 2008 model. The white lines/band running horizontally across the screen is not permanent, and goes off if point pressure is applied from the top coverside of the screen, or on the face of the screen.

I did , open my laptop monitor and checked the data connection to the screen and the power supply, and they both look ok, although still on applying pressure the white lines go on and off.

Now I am not sure, it is an issue with the ribbon of my monitor or whole LCD monitor. Do note, that the lcd monitor do works fine sometimes. Please advise.

I'm almost positive it's not a driver issue, as I have updated, rolled back and reupdated the GPU and monitor's drivers.

Recently, blue lines start to appear a few pixels to the right of thin black areas (more often than not, text and the mouse cursor), but only if white is the background. I'd demonstrate with a screen shot, but the monitor itself does this, not the software. I might take a picture with my cell phone to post it up if need be.

It happens randomly and it stops on its own as well, but I have not been able to find the cause. It's not as if I've been doing heavy gaming lately that my GPU would react harshly. Does anyone have some thoughts?

Have you tried putting the removed drive back in?

It looks like a video card problem (hardware) to me - but it shouldn't be that because you're able to use the USB Startup Repair functions (am I right in this assumption?). That means (to me) that it's likely to be a video driver problem (?).

Can you attempt to boot into Safe Mode? If so, what happens?
Does the screen problem show up after POST is completed? If so, at what point does it show up?

I use Windows 7 Home Premium SP1.

I started using a new 17" 4:3 monitor. Afterwards, two white vertical lines (borders ?) appear on the two sides of the black content area of a few program windows when maximized.

For instance (IrfanView, whole screen):

Is that normal?

The old monitor was also 17" and 4:3, but there were not those two lines.

Even if it's normal, I'd rather not see them. Can they be hidden?

I have tried "Personalize > Windows Color > Advanced appearance settings > select Border Padding from under Item > change size from 5 to 0". But that seems irrelevant.

A:Two white vertical lines on screen unseen before

It looks like the edges of the IrfanView window to me (i.e. I see them when I run IrfanView).

As far as I'm aware you can only get rid of them by going to "Full screen" view.

I have a problem with my Windows XP Desktop, there are blue lines on the top of the screen and the task bar was missing but I managed to pull it up from the bottom so its back again.
Sometimes half of the screen goes white and then normal. When it does go back to normal the top part where the line is crossed is working but the bottom half is not, like its frozen there. The mouse cursor moves really slowly.
However for a little bit the screen goes normal (although the blue line is still flickering) and I can open IE.

Please help? I have no idea what's happening.

Furthermore it doesn't present the problem until next boot. I cannot enter BIOS or Boot Mený due to this problem. See the attached video to understand the problem better.Thanks all in advance.

I have a probook that was upgraded to Windows 10 and has been working fine for a few weeks.  Today as we boot it goes right to an orange screen with white vertical lines.  I have run some system diagnostics (F2) and everything seems to pass and then looked at the BIOs (F10) and again it seems fine.  When I try to boot to safe mode (F8) it won't do anything - goes back to the orange screen.  I have limited knowledge and am trying what I have found on searching the internet.  Do I have any hope of fixing this or do I need to take it in?

I had just clicked into some video on youtube when the screen suddenly became filled with lines like this:
(This bar is now at the top of my desktop)

(This is my start menu)

I clicked around a few times and it eventually went away. However, my start menu and desktop still has these lines.

Does anyone know what they are and how I can get rid of them?

I'm back again; this time with an issue on my desktop. I always set the monitor to power off after sitting idle for a few hours. This morning when I tried to use it; the monitor flashed white then went to a black screen with progressively brighter vertical colored lines in different groups across the screen. We powered it off; disconnected the monitor connector and reconnected - still get a white screen on start up then the black screen with color lines that grow brighter and brighter as time goes on. I have onboard video with this machine - praying its not that. I've read other posts here about the lines; OR the white screen but not both. Any ideas friends?

That looks like your GPU could be on it's way out.
The easiest way to test is to plug your monitor into the onboard graphics (provided your board has onboard).
If everything is okay when plugged into onboard then it's your GPU that's faulty and probably needs replacing I'm afraid.
Try the onboard test and see if everything works okay.
If it's still the same then it could be your monitor.

I'd be interested to know what your fps benchmark is. evga oc scanner is good. I have dual 460 gtx and the benchmark is around 95 fps. When I installed these in a new board my screen would go black when I paused for anything i.e. to agree to a download. I get a small vertical line loading a game but it didn't worry me for some reason. My benchs are ok, not impressive. After 2 or 3 restarts it hasn't frozen since. If your temps are good and it benchmarks ok I don't know enough and I'm not confident enough to answer questions. Somebody will help you. They put up with me. This is the best forum I've been on yet.

Hi there, I've recently been experiencing a problem with my HP Pavilion laptop (running Vista Home 32bit), every so often the screen will just turn black with some white diagonal lines running across it.

Defective screen. We see lots of them. Failed. Same symptom.

I have an Inspiron 11.  Last night I upgraded the memory to 8gb (Crucial 8GB Single DDR3 1600 MT/s (PC3-12800) CL11 SODIMM 204-Pin 1.35V/1.5V Notebook Memory CT102464BF160B) and when I try to boot, it won't bring up Windows...the screen looks like it freezes.  I've tried the diagnostics, same problem.  It's not at a consistent time.  Sometimes it goes a little further, but it never makes it to the Windows screen.  Once I put back the old memory it works fine.  I get that it's a memory problem, but I thought I read that the memory I purchased worked for others.  So I'm wondering if there's something I can do to get it to work for me. 
I'm not a technical guy (as your probably figured out).  Just a guy who likes to screw around and learn.

When I boot Vista, 4 on 5 times, I have a black screen with a corrupted white line at the top after the loading dots and before the animated logo like this screen and the computer hangs on this screen and sometimes Vista load NORMALLY and the computer behaves normally without any more hangs. until I shut it off.

The corrupted line at the top could change of appearance and length from one reboot to another...

Here is my config:

Dual Core E8500 @ original specs (3Ghz)
Nvidia 9800GT 512mb NOT overclocked
4 GB RAM at 800Mhz
Bios in safe or optimized setup
Vista 32 bits SP1

A:Black screen (with top white lines) locks before animated logo

I just discovered that now, it's becoming an inconsistent boot, after few tries with different boot setting (in F8), it may or may not enter Vista normally, and never with the same option... but I can ALWAYS enter the safe mode boot and the one with networking

If it's hardware related, it seems suspicious because once I'm IN vista with a successfull attempt, there is NO MORE trouble: I can stay on Vista for long period, work with very demanding softwares (like photoshop) or 3D games without any more hangs...

I already tried without success:
- a full defragmentation
- Hijack software
- two anti-malware programs
- the recovery repair disk
- CCleaner
- disable the UAC

I'm really desesperate...

6 inch thick white lines down my laptop screen. 2 of them are solid white the others are fairly transparent but very noticeable, spaced out across the whole screen. The laptop itself works perfectly and the lines have been there a long time. There was only 1 to start with but its gotten worse over time. I am using an external monitor and play games a fair amount without any problems. I am wondering is this a screen or inverter issue or will i need a new motherboard for my laptop for a new graphics chip?

A:6 inch thick white lines down my screen but laptop works fine?

If you know about how to open inside the laptop, first check out the connection cable is seated properly between screen and mobo. But mostly times, you have to replace screen. There is no problem on Motherboard and screen inverter.

about a half an hour ago my laptop acer ferrari one started to behave strangely, at the beginning only a couple horizontal white line started to move up and down on my screen. Sometimes it gets worse and can't use the laptop at all but most of the time is mild. the laptop is new, was bought this year in february, the lcd screen broke once due to unknown reasons (my husband thinks is delamination) and it was changed about a month a go so that's new idea why ot behaves like that it has never been droped, or wet or anything i take good care of it.
ps now i have no image left on the laptop, it's grey....

A:Acer Ferrari one LCD screen makes movable horizontal white lines

just to add the damage to the previous lcd had the appearance of liquid damage, but we are 100% sure that no liquid was spilt on the machine and there were no signs of liquid ingress or disruption when the unit was stripped to replace the lcd (strangeley liquid damage was what acer decided and refused to provide me evidence). Anyway further information, we have a display out of the vga port so i pressume it isnt the graphics card. the vga cable has been traced checked for snags or squishes and appears fine and both ends are clean, undamaged and plugged in properly.

the flickering white lines occured over a period of 30-60 mins and gradually worsened untill we were left with a gray screen, Does this sound like a LCD failiure bearing in mind it does have a long warranty but is an ebay item?

Cheers Brett (ana's husband)

So recently my computer has been crashing to a white or black screen with horizontal colored lines running accross it. I'm told it may be because i changed my page file size but i set it to a safe limit that should not be affecting it. I'v also been told it could be graphics card related, so i updated my drivers.

Emachines EL1200-o5
Nvidia Gforce 6150SE
AMD Athlon 2650
2.7 gigs of ram

Also i changed my page file to 2.7 which i'm told is a safe amount for my computer.

Hi all The screen of my Inspiron randomly becomes completely covered in white fuzzy lines the entire screen There is no particular pattern for when this happens It sometimes happens as soon as I log in and begin typing and or clicking on the mouse pad and on other occasions I can use the laptop for a good randomly in screen Inspiron lines horizontal covered 3520 fuzzy white hour or two before it happens Today for example I used the laptop for minutes and it happened times with each occasion lasting about - seconds in duration However yesterday I used the laptop for over an hour and it didn t happen at all I imagine this is a hardware problem relating Inspiron 3520 screen randomly covered in white fuzzy horizontal lines to a wire connecting the screen as it only happens when I m actually using Inspiron 3520 screen randomly covered in white fuzzy horizontal lines the laptop to type or surf the web etc I can watch a film on the laptop for a straight hours and it won t happen once so long as I don t touch the machine So I m thinking that possibly the mild vibrations caused by me pressing the keys and or mouse pad are causing a wire to disconnect or become lose It doesn t matter if the laptop is hot or cold it s indiscriminate I have ran all the applicable tests on SupportAssist and no issue is found I ve also updated all drivers About months ago I upgraded from Windows to and the problem stopped for a short while so I was hopeful it had been a software glitch However it Inspiron 3520 screen randomly covered in white fuzzy horizontal lines soon started again and now it s happening so frequently the laptop is basically useless other than for watching films clips Any ideas suggestions guys Many thanks

If that's the cause, then the image should be ok on an external screen - that would be the first thing to check.  
If it's not, the problem is with the mainboard.

Hi Sean,

I don't like to say it, but it sounds like the graphics card is dead. I had the same issue on an old 8800gts, it would work until I installed the drivers, then I would get very bad artifacts/lines down the screen.
I tried it on 2 different PC's with the same end result once the drivers were installed.

Hi, I'm having trouble with seeing when loading windows. When I first turn my computer on, everything is good. I see my BIOS screen nice and clear. It loads the black screen that has the Windows logo with the loading bar under it, then when it gets to the loading screen, I just get a bunch of black and white lines and cannot see anything. The last thing I remember doing on the computer before this problem was updating drivers. So naturally, I went into safe mode and rolled back the graphics driver. That didn't work, so I reinstalled the graphics driver that came with my graphics card. still no success. I'm beginning to think that it's a problem with windows, not the drivers or card, since the BIOS screen is fine and I don't run into trouble until Windows loads the welcome screen. Does anyone know how to solve this?

A:Red and blue lines on screen

You have to swap out the graphics card. It's really the only way to eliminate the video card as the source of the problem. Goofy lines like that can be symptomatic of the video card failing. If the driver in the machine didn't have a problem before, and there haven't been any other major changes in the hard or software configuration, stands to reason that the card is the prime suspect.

I'm not exactly sure where in the video system a screen shot is taken, but it seems certain it's well before that actual screen output. Were we using the same video connecting cable on all the different screens? Beause you might try another monitor cable first if it was.

Can you get in with safe mode and go to device manager to look for any yellow markers or problems with grahics driver?
Possibly even a system restore to get back to normal, from safe mode?

Worst case scenario, give this a try. If you can get in be sure not to make a selection that would cause you to lose your stuff, such as the back up image

If you create a recovery DVD, you may be able to boot to recovery options
Create Recovery DVD

The Vista recovery disk is used to boot Vista when it won't boot - to run Startup Repair, System Restore, access a Command Line, Recover using a Vista Backup Image, etc.
System Recovery Options

If Vista will not start now, boot the Recovery CD to run Startup Repair which automates System Restore as well as numerous other tests including System File Checker which can repair system files which are not corrupted beyond repair.

If Vista still will not start, try booting into Safe Mode to run sfc /scannow to repair System files.

Below is a bulletin distributed by MS to explain the start up procedure when Windows will not boot.
Startup Repair. Startup Repair is a Windows recovery tool that can fix certain problems, such as missing or damaged system files, that might prevent Windows from starting. Startup Repair is located on the System Recovery Options menu, which is on the Windows Vista installation disc. If your computer has preinstalled recovery options, it might also be stored on your computer's hard disk. For more information, see Startup Repair: frequently asked questions and What are the system recovery options in Windows Vista? If your computer does not include Startup Repair, your computer manufacturer might have customized or replaced the tool. Check the information that came with your computer or go to the manufacturer's website.Change restart settings in safe mode. If your computer is stuck in a loop where Windows fails, attempts to restart, and then fails again repeatedly, restart your computer in safe mode and select the Disable automatic restart on system failure checkbox. For more information, see Advanced startup options (including safe mode).Reinstall. If no other options have solved the problem, and you are sure that your computer's hardware is functioning normally, you might need to reinstall Windows. A custom (clean) installation of Windows will permanently delete all of the files on your computer and reinstall Windows, so only use this option if all other recovery options have been unsuccessful. After the installation, you will need to reinstall your programs and restore your files from backup copies. For more information, see Installing and reinstalling Windows**.

The update is called:
nvidia - Graphics adapter WDDM1.1, Graphics Adapter WDDM1.2, Other hardware - NVIDIA GeForce GT 425M.
After installing it, whenever my laptop tries to use the Nvidia card, I get a blue screen and the system restarts.
I looked in installed updates to uninstall it, and it is not there.
I did a system restore to four days before I installed it, and I still get the same effect. Lastly, I installed some older nvidia drivers that used to work using the clean install option, and I still have this problem.

A:Optional update in windows update is giving me a blue screen.

It looks as though the update changed something in nvlddmkm.sys, and for some reason, it wasn't changed back when I did the system restore. I have no idea how to go about fixing it.

I have a Dell XPS M1530 Laptop that I've had for about a few years now. I suddenly notice that there is blue vertical lines. I try closing the laptop monitor and reopening it to see if it goes away. It would work for a short period of time but now the lines are constantly there. I can close the laptop lid down to a certain point and there will be no lines and the display will be fine again. I'm guessing the display wire could possibly damage. Is there anything I could do to replace the wire or fix the problem myself?

Since a couple of weeks, I have a problem with my laptop screen. From time to time, suddenly, everything on the screen disappears and I get a screen with only white and grey lines (see picture attached). When this happens, I can't use the laptop anymore and I have to shutdown by pressing the power button. On some days, I have no problems, on other days, this happens several times.
What can be the reason and how can this be solved?

Kind regards,

My system had become very slow. And there also appears to be some problem with the graphics. When I close a window, there remain blue or yellow lines on the desktop, where the border of the window used to be. I saw a suspicios process whose name I have forgotten, but I remember that the search I conducted returned that it has something to do with nvidia and is not actually a malware maybe. It was taking too much resources. I ended it and the performance got a little better. I also did something I don't remember, after which, that process doesn't start again.

Also, dap.exe was taking so much resources. The process was there even after I exited DAP. Although DAP was functioning perfectly. I also uninstalled DAP. The process doesnt come back now.

But the blue and yellow lines are still there. And the system is still slow. What do I do???

Trie to connect the mon itor to another cvomputer to make sure that it is not the monitor at fault. Secondly update the drivers for your video card.

Ok so here s the problem My friend recently Graphics lines blue and causes card screen. bought a PowerColor HD GB GDDR graphics card and after installing the card and the drivers and restarting windows the loading screen gets all kinds of lines across the screen up until the point where you enter in your log in information and then a blue screen The AMD install manager is responsible for downloading and installing Graphics card causes lines and blue screen. the latest driver for his device so he didn t download a bad driver since it comes directly from AMD Whenever he reattempts to install everything he has to reinstall windows due to being stuck in the blue screen loop when he attempts to log in to windows regularly Obviously without the drivers windows can t detect his card But any attempt to install the drivers causes the quot tears quot in the screen Here are the specs of his desktop CPU Intel Core i k CPU GHZ Motherboard and slots Gigabyte GA-Z -D H -- x PCI-E x x USB gigs of Ram Plus the aforementioned gpu Can anyone point us in the right direction as to what the problem may be He pretty much can t use his desktop because his card isn t working Any help would be appreciated Thank you nbsp

I didn't really know where to post this. I'm new to this forum and I got a problem with my very old and bad PC.

Specs: (don't laugh)
Motherboard: Leonite-GL8E / ASUS P5LP-LE / leonite 5.00
CPU: Intel Pentium D 915 2.8GHz
GRAPHIC CARD: Idk how to check this without turning the pc as it doesn't load the windows?

Whenever I turn my PC white stripes appear on the screen while booting and loading windows then they change to blue. I had Windows 7 Ultimete x64 and a blue screen appeared all the time while loading the system and said something about graphic card. I then done a format to Windows XP as it didn't even let me instal new any Windows 7 system and the XP worked fine but the stripe were still there although only while booting.

There's few pictures how it looks. Please help.

A:White stripes on the screen while booting then blue screen.

Either power supply can't deliver enough power for graphics card or graphics card is dying but this white stripes indicate that it's probably second one.

Well you can check graphics card model by looking at it-you may recognize it;or there is a sticker on the graphics card from which you could read it's model.

I have a problem with my computer. I just restarted it, and it ended up booting with purple/blue lines all over the screen.

So the first thing i did was go into device manager. All it told me was a caution symbol next to my NVIDIA geForce 8500 GT. so i downloaded and reinstalled the drivers for it. No effect.

Then i booted into safe mode to find if it was a motherboard issue. The lines remained.

At this point im asking all of you at this fourm, what is the issue and how do i fix it? Thank you.

A:Purple/blue lines over screen, not sure if driver or motherboard issue

If its an add in card re-seat it in its slot and make sure any power cables are securely connected. You may want to unplug the power supply from the wall plug so your PC doesn't accidentally start up while you are working on it. Also make sure the heat sink is free of dust and the fan (if it has one) is working correctly. You may want to check your case fans for dust too while you have the case open.

Random Blue Thin/Dotted Lines on My HP Laptop Screen

I was recently transfering files to my new laptop, and uninstalling programs on my old laptop when I suddenly got thin blue lines randomly on my old screen in dark or black areas (see images). It is not in the same location on the screen depending on what I am viewing.

I hooked an external monitor to my laptop and the image is perfect. Another odd thing is when I screen capture the bluelines and view the image file on another PC, they do not show.

Any ideas?

Hi guys,

My Dell computer running Vista keeps crashing and starting back up with these wierd wavy blue and yellow lines across the whole screen. The screen resolution also reverts back to 800x600 and only 3 other resolution options even remain. Usually I'll reinstall the video card drivers and the problem goes away, for a bit. I even reformatted the computer thinking it was a virus and the same problem reoccured. My problem seems very similiar to these posts here:

According to those posts the answer seems to be my video card crapping out, if this is the case I'll have to get a new one but if you think there might be any other answer, please let me know.

A:Blue Screen of Death Without Any Message, Just Random Horizontal Lines

If you can use the pc normally in safe mode, I think it's a software issue. Maybe your windows got corrupted.
When did this start? did you install anything or change anything in your computer's configuration? try using MBAM. If you could boot windows normally, I'd ask you to post a hijackthis log.
Does the bsod appear after the windows loading screen or before or while it's loading?

A:Blue lines at startup? Screen shuts off when I boot in normal mode

The main problem with my computer not being able to load and the vertical blue lines was solved. The video card indeed appeared to be burned out or malfunctioning.
There was as a result no virus affecting my system.
In case anybody is reading the main way you can use to see if theirs a virus or your video card is malfunctioning is by running video tests or if any lines appear on the dell logo because viruses usually affect your system after the dell logo loads and when windows starts to load

This seems like a graphics card problem; whether it is fixable or not is uncertain at this point.

Could you try a different video card in the system? Perhaps borrow one from a friend, or steal one from a different computer.

I just downloaded the latest windows update KB969947 and the malicious software removal tool. After the download I clicked on the "restart system now" button. Not long after this the screen went blue with this message.

The windows system process terminated unexpectedally with a status of 0xc0000005 (0x7c911766 0x006af8ec)
The system has been shut down.

I restarted manually and everything seemed to run OK. I went back to MS updates and it seemed as though the updates had beeen successful. I have never had a problem with windows updates before and I was wondering if this might be a sign of a bigger problem.

2) I will restart the computer
3) The windows will begin the booting process

Been getting the above lately, i think it an old un-resolved issue that i never got to the bottom of.

On start-up, or just after, it crashes, with blue screen, writing for about 2 seconds and then disappears as the pc re-boots.

Any one know where that file is stored? - It must be somewhere?

I think it said something about " a non-paged area"

A registry scan indicates many errors. Fixing these help or cause more problems? I've never done it before.
Running sfc scans now [picked up nothing, ran 2x], then will update graphics card. Will post results.

Sorry if this thread was jumping the gun on an easy solution... but when it didn't want to start up the first few times, I became quite concerned.

After uninstalling my my nvidia drivers, before re-installing, the blue lines popped up again after the required reboot. This time they didn't cause the computer to crash, so I shut it down. I'm going to wait a while, as this seemed to be a temporary fix for the problem last time, and then install the new driver.

After waiting a boot resulted in the all-too familiar Black Screen (no splash, dos writing, or mouse pointer. But light is emitting from screen). I'm going to shut it down, and leave it off for a few hours (give it proper time to cool off).

I've just spent that last few days re-installing Windows 7 Pro x64 onto a new SSD. All my drivers are installed and up to date with no yellow exclamation marks and all the Win updates installed successfully. I have been re-installing all my software and games etc without any problems or errors. Today Windows Update found 13 more updates containing security and system updates for Win x64, Framework 4, 3.5.1, and a definitions for Office-14. After installing this and clicking on the restart windows button I saw the 'applying updates counter' then experienced a blue screen.
After rebooting I chose start Windows normally and windows update reports that the updates installed successfully but I'm now wondering whether I need to start over and re-install everything all over again or perhaps I'll get away with simply ignoring it. It did produce an error log but I need somebody whom understands it to diagnose what the cause was.
Thank You
Mike JP

I'm having an issue with one of my computers which started with just a Blue Screen of Death out of nowhere.

The stop code I got was 0x0000008E, which I googled and ended up reading that it has something to do with Memory. I ran MemTest86, which brought back no errors. I also ran a diagnostic on my Hard Drive, which also brought back nothing.

I then started seeing it crashing during Windows Update. I haven't taken a close enough look at which specific updates are being installed as I haven't looked at the computer since Sunday, but I was wondering if it definitely is a memory issue and one of my RAM sticks need to be replaced.

Well, when i logged in, the Webroot Security said it will expire in 3 days, i dismissed it...opened up minecraft, being the second day after 1.8, I destroyed a block in minecraft, and my computer crashed with a white screen and blue stripes going verticly down. I panicked and spamed the ctrl alt del, ctrl alt, esc, then unplugged t, and took out the battery in panic.
Now whenever i turn it on, it gives a black screen, it still runs but it doesnt do anything more. Can i please have any suggestions, tips, tricks, and or help on getting around this?

Edit: Forgot to mention it is a Toshiba, model no. PSK2LU - 001003

A:Laptop crashed with white screen and blue stripes

Hi explosm357 and Welcome to TSF,

How far the boot process do you get? I'm just curious as to if you see anything at all in the beginning, the black/white text?

As my first thought it's a hardware issue, so i'll move it over to the hardware part, so we can still use this thread.

You could try another monitor, and try tilting the screen up/down to see if it reacts in any way. Does the PC turn hot if you have it on for a while?

It's either a GPU or PSU fault i'd suspect.

HelloI have a spare computer and the other day it was on while I went to take a shower. I came back and saw this black screen with rectangles a strange letter that looks like a C with a tail and an unresponsive blinking cursor in the upper left hand corner. When I restart it goes imediately to that screen. I was able to finally get into boot menu by pressing first F12 and then F2. It does say that my primary drive can not be found. Yet in the boot menu I am seeing that the first drive is recognized. It's confusing. I am on an older computer that is a Dell Dimension 8200 with all the original parts. It is Windows XP service pack 3. I have tested the monitor and that is not it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. The orange rectangle in the picture is actually red in person.

I downloaded windows 10 sometime ago and recently downloaded a few other programs that have a virus protection. A few days later I turn my computer (Dell laptop) on and it shows the blue window emblem, dissapears and I'm left with a blue screen with the circle of dots. I'm thinking my problem is from the downloads I put on.

Hey guys my laptop s been acting up and I was hoping to get some advice on what to do I ll start by saying that I don t specks/lines pink, yellow problem Graphics - screen blue, on card green, know much about computers which will likely become clearer and clearer with the more you read of what follows so please bear with me Two days ago I started getting green and pink specks snow lines showing up on my laptop s screen and I have now graduated to blue and yellow specks lines as well My initial thought was that I could have a virus so I ran a virus scan to no avail I started poking around the internet looking for people w similar problems and saw some similar things but nothing that quite matched my problem I did however make a few observations that may or may Graphics card problem - pink, green, blue, yellow specks/lines on screen not be helpful that I have listed below -emailed a screenshot of the desktop to a friend who reported seeing the same green and pink specks on the image on his computer that I was seeing can post if it would be helpful -no problems seem to be present when I boot into BIOS memory -seems like there might be some relationship to the heat of the computer as the specks lines seemed to take longer to reappear after allowing the computer to cool off and then turning it on whereas normally the problem would be evident immediately when I turn the computer back on after shutting down -there is a definite relationship with the orientation of the computer tilted and location and degree of pressure on the case if I push down hard enough in the right spot on the case just below the arrow keys on the top of the case the problem resolves completely but I usually have to shift to another window or scroll down the page b c the specks lines are still on the screen or the text is blurry etc -there seems to be no relationship to the orientation of the screen my roommate knows more about computers than I do and seems to think it is definitely the graphics card and that this is a deteriorating problem that will only get worse Do you think there is any benefit to be had by opening up the case and adjusting something not sure what exactly as it seems like there may be something loose or not connected quite right that is possibly causing the problem relevant info about my computer -dell inspiron m bought in August so well out of warranty but was custom built with what I understood to be decent components at the time and the hard drive DVD-RW and case were replaced at various points along the way all under warranty but was never dropped etc -graphics card ATI Radeon MB I think based on what I ve searched online but is definitely MB let me know if you need any other info to help diagnose the problem sorry for the long post and thanks in advance for taking the time to help nbsp

A:Graphics card problem - pink, green, blue, yellow specks/lines on screen

Longer posts mean more information and that's ALWAYS a God-send to anyone trying to troubleshoot a problem. So no apologies are necessary.

As for your problem, I'm going to agree with your roomie. There is very little you can do to fix this. Right now, the state of your computer follows one of the following options:

1) The graphics card is dying from years of use, and may be sensitive to heat now that it has been in use for a while. Computer components follow the same rule as any other piece of equipment or appliance. They're made with planned obsolescence. Eventually, things die for no better reason than that's what the company wanted. Your graphics card is overheating and it's causing what are known as "artifacts". Whenever you see specks or lines appearing at random, that's your graphics card screwing up and outputting random things onto the screen.

2) The graphics card has come loose and needs to be reseated. I'm not entirely sure about this one, but it might be the case given that pressing down on the computer solved your issue. BUT! (and this is a big but) I have no idea if you would be able to access and reseat it. Nor do I know how one would go about doing that with a laptop graphics card. I've never seen what they look like, how they're installed, replaced, or whatever else. You also risk breaking MORE things by opening it and trying to screw around in it. If you felt like spending a bit of money, you could take it to a local computer repair shop and have them take a look at it and see if they can reseat the card for a minimal price tag. But most places overcharge and might not even fix it properly. And if option 1 is your issue, then no matter what you do it will still be broken.

Either option more or less spells a message of demise. You might want to consider buying another laptop and finding an external driver to move all of your important files to for the transition phase. After all, a laptop like that one you have is, unfortunately, in need of replacement after 5 long years. Even for a custom built laptop as good as that, 5 years is about as long as it could have lasted.

I feel bad to be the bearer of very bad news. And if it's any consolation, I'd be more than happy to have a look online and find you a laptop at a steal price.

Good Morning!
I have a Dell Demension 4700 which was working fine and just recently starting having a blue screen of death pop-up, then I realized it only occurred when I was running Windows Update. It trys to install IE7 along with a bunch of other hotfixes and it goes to the blue screen with the following codes.

0X0000008E (0XC0000005, 0XEE940928, 0XECBFAA28, 0X00000000)

Can anyone assist me if figuring this problem out??
Thank You!!

A:Blue Screen of Death when running Windows Update

Does the BSOD only come from running Windows Update, or does it occur (every time) on boot ?

Did anything else (besides running Update) "change" prior to the problem (new hardware/software, etc...) ?

In short I need some serious help because this is how the forced Update Blue Screen Off Shutting When Windows Module update to windows starts My updates are set to Off Blue Screen When Shutting Off Windows Update Module but it updates anyway I feel like i'm being straight hacked by microsoft After it updates Anytime i turn my computer back on it finished whatever update it downloaded behind my back Now it's at a point where if i try to kill the quot Windows Update Module quot through task manager I get a Blue screen of death quot IRQL not less or equal quot This only happens when i kill the windows update Module in task manager I often kill this process for core reasons It's not supposed to be updating anything Especially since i have the updates set to off It takes up way too much CPU and Disk which causes this laptop to run even worse then what it already does I say it runs worse because the CPU and Disk are already high because of McAfee alone This just dog-piles the crappy performance which irritates me to no end because at this point when all this is going on i can't even play basic games like Sims without serious lag issues There is no winning i guess eventually my laptop will just eventually shut off and update to windows then
