I purchased a used CPU, it seemed to work fine in the thrift shop.
Now that I have it home, it has lines all through my text, when I scroll up or down, the text follows, like, it repeats a million times, the screen seems to double, part of turns black, I tried to download a pc game, it comes up black, and the colors are all messed up. What is this, and what can I do, I don't money to put it in the shop.
Please help if you can :4-dontkno

Hello and Welcome to TSF

Right click on an empty part of your desktop click Properties. Click the settings tab, how many colors are shown?

Sounds to me like a resolution problem also... although I think this involved more with the frequency. Are you using a different monitor than the one that you tried in the shop? If so, I would check the refresh frequency.
