    Are the lines all over the screen, flickering? Can you move the mouse and see it (barely)?

    Or are there just a few lines, perhaps at the top of the screen, and everything is locked?

    The line cover the whole of the screen running verticaly
    PC totaly locks up

    It seems to be running ok with a spare card i had (TNT2 M64)

    It will happen anytime between the windows splash screen onwards

    You over heating it? Got it overclocked? Is the fan still running? Cleaned the dust out? Case temps too high?
