Default A couple of problems, nothing too taxing.

This morning I was playing Fallen Earth and my screen had zig zagging diagonal lines across it. Assuming it was the computer having a brainfart I turned it back on. Instead of lines I now had specks of green and the computer froze after being laggy with the cursor despite using a wired mouse.

I restarted again, starting to worry and it was fine. watched eSports with a Steam friend. Turned it off then came back again but the lines were now matrix style. Vertical, green lines across the screen and I cannot use the keyboard arrow keys to go from Launch Startup Repair to Start Windows Normally and not sure why since keyboard lights up and work in BIOS.

If this is the graphics card on its way out then that is fine as I have a GTX 660 on its way. I need someone to answer this for me.

Either over heating or ready to take a dirt nap.
