Long vertical green dollar lines about 4 or five of them
Dollar signs on the screen and other spots. This just happened when I was typing using Word. I had been using it little over 4 hours when it suddenly appeared. Long vertical green dollar lines about 4 or five of them on the screen. There are other white spots too appearing and little yellow dots.
I restarted the computer and these characters don’t appear on boot up only when it loads to the windows desktop. I tried to start in safe mode, and it doesn’t show anything abnormal.
This only shows when I’m in Windows itself, in the desktop, when browsing, using software. If this is a video card problem why doesn’t the problems manifest itself in safe mode?
I did a driver reinstall of the video card which is an ATI Radeon 9550 and for a few minutes it seemed to solve the problem but then returned to where it was.
