    Good evening,

    I'm having this weird issue when I turn on my Acer ES1-111M-P2YU. (See the picture).
    Sometimes, it stays like that until I turn the computer off, then I turn it on again, and the issue doesn't occur and the boot screen comes normally (Acer bootscreen) and sometimes, it goes straight to the bootscreen after issue on pciture happens. I tried to upload a video but couldn't. If someone knows what this could be please help so I can know what to do with that, this is my college computer at the moment.

    Are you running windows? Have you checked for updated video drivers?

    Windows 10. Up to date drivers. Should I reinstall them? Today I turned it on, issue did not happen.

    This is caused by a few things. Monitor could be dying, gpu more then likely needs to be serviced, graphics driver needs to be updated, or your video cable has a broken wire inside. Or if this is a laptop, try replacing your thermal paste and thermal pads inside the pc.

    If you have a another monitor you might try connecting it to the computers video output the next time the lines issue happens.

    I know little of applying thermal paste to it. I managed to change ram and it required to remove the motherboard. I took it apart only once but it's been working fine for more than a year. Oh well... I'll try the monitor test, it can be using HDMI right?
