My computer has suddenly started to have a screen pixel break up from the initial boot screen right to windows. I thought my monitor had gone kaput but have tried another spare one I had and its still the same, its as if the screen and colours are all out of shape, I can just about see the display, have tried graphics drivers, the lot but as it starts from the moment you switch on before windows I fear te worst, is it a hardware issue or Bios, I haven;t done anything different since yesterday? Cheers

checking that ur grafs card is seated correctly (open the box), or ensuring your monitor lead is connected correclty at the PC end. Try the basic stuff first.

Could be your VGA card dying...

What about trying a different cable from the monitor (s) could be the connection.
