Windows Vista Problem, Need Help!

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
My brothers Windows Vista HP Computer has yellow and blue bars going across the whole screen. He thinks it started because of the new Internet Explorer 9 which I recently installed because ie9 keeps freezing. Apparently he can only start up into safe mode and the blue and yellow bars are still all over the screen.
It it for sure from ie9? He said there was nothing else new. I would think its from the video card but ie9 has consistently been freezing and shutting down the computer. But how could ie9 be causing this?

You could boot into safe mode and see what happens, or try a spare video card in the machine. If it happens in safe mode I would say it is definately the card. Most of the similar problems I saw were card related.

It sounds like its your video card thats the problem, IE9 might have just been a coincidence. Do you have any extra ones laying around you could try? Or try reinstalling video drivers while in safe mode and see if that helps.
