You haven't told us anything about your computer. Desktop? Laptop? Video
card? What changed between the time things worked and the time they didn't?
Generally, the way to troubleshoot these sorts of problems on a desktop
is to connect the machine to another monitor. If the problem is gone,
then you know the original monitor is dying and needs to be replaced. If
the problem exists on a different monitor, then it is probably a failing
video card. Uninstall the current one and put in a known-working one to
test. If all is well, then replace the original video card.
With a laptop, you can try booting with a rescue system such as Knoppix,
a Linux distro that runs from CD. If things are wonky under Linux, then
you know for sure it is a hardware problem. Since you can't fix this
yourself on a laptop, contact the laptop mfr.'s tech support for
