    Lines across screen from boot

    Here is a photo of what was greeting a member of staff on loading his computer up this morning and once last week too.



    This appears on both the monitor and projector and first time round I changed the monitor and DVI cable so I'd rule out the cables and displays out, these are new machines installed during the summer and out of 55 we only have this one having problems, would I be right guessing possibly a memory issue?

    Could be memory, could be graphics controller. (or given how integrated stuff is these days it could be something else)

    If they are new machines just RMA it and get a new shiny one.
