Suspect graphics card failure = pixel pattern on screen display
I am vainly hoping that it is not the case but I stongly suspect that the graphic card/chip is failing (on logic board).
- machine operates fine
- screen is distorted with regular patterned 'tramlines' running vertically. Desktop is virtually illegible as a result.
- same distortion occurs when plugging in an external monitor
I;m hoping that this my be a symptom of a loose connection btween the screen and graphic card. But I'm thinking not.
Greatly appreciate your input.
Is this a good question?
