Get her to double check the cable first, it might have just come adrift or be loose, but normally if a monitor does that it says something like no signal. But its a place to start.

You need to try the monitor on another computer to see if it's doing the same, if it's OK then it's your graphic's Card.

Hi could anyone help me please. My computer has pink lines on it and I dont know what it is. Someone said it could be the graphics card. sometimes when i switch on one half of the screen is light pink and the other half is fine. I have swapped monitors to check but it is still doing the same. My card is a Radeon 9800 xxl.I have updated all the drivers and clean all the dust but no joy. any help would be appreciated.
many thanks
