Screen only only shows stripes!
My iMac screen suddenly started showing stripes only. It starts up normally, but I can't see anything, Everything works fine but the screen itself. All it's displaying is just stripes vertical and horizontal. The iMac never fell, nothing ever hit it.
I napped leaving music on the computer, after waking up I found the screen totally messed up.
I wonder if I over used it. I tried everything I can rebooting and so on, nothing works.
Now I have no idea what to do! I'm a graphic designer and I work with it a lot. It never showed any malfunction for two years until now,
I also have no warranty left and I don't trust third parties at all here in Morocco, most are scams.
Hope someone can help me do something .
