Default Lines on screen???

I have just got a new computer and have put it all together myself,

when windows Me boots up the screen has diagonal lines on, i don't believe they are on when the system is booting up, only in windows.

The lines are most visible when there is a black background on the screen

Also the actual windows screen size is too big, changing the size of the screen does not help as even if you reduce the size, a part of the bottom taskbar etc is cut off

If anyone can help me please do,
