I've tried deleting the driver and installing a newly downloaded one.. but the problem still stands.
Does anyone have any experience in this matter than can help me?
Any help would be much appreciated.
Two things you'll need to do to see if it s/w. Boot into safe mode, if the lines are still there it's hardware, if not, it's your driver.
If it's hardware, new sytem board is required, I believe this model has built in video. If it is s/w, boot into safe mode, uninstall all monitor files. Restart in normal mode, once your o/s? locates the new hardware, install the newest video driver for your model. Make sure you have the drivers on hand prior to deleting the old ones.
Let me know what happens!
