Default Lines Appear down lap top screen, forcing manual shut down.

I just bought a brand new lap top I have been using it a couple of weeks but now its acting wierd... Randomly multi color lines will appear on the screen and the audio will make a loud sound. I can do nothing but turn it off...

It used to only happen once every couple of days but now its several times a day...Unfortunitly I do not know anything about PCs... any advice?

Do it the simplest way. Either RMA it or ask for an exchange wherever you bought it.

Thankyou for the reply. Unfortunitly, I cannot take the PC back since it was on sale and a gift. What is a RMA?

Even if it was a gift, you should have gotten a guest receipt, or the person that bought you it should still have the receipt. Ask. Sale won't matter.

Return Merchandise Authorization - Sending it back to the manufacturer to fix it. While under warranty, you pay nothing but the shipping to them, most of the time.
