During a upgrading of my Windows Vista 64 OS update installation the process was interrupted by a power off / termination event. When I re-booted the display screen went all crazy.. The screened is filled with thin lines running horizontally across the screen in the upper thrid o the display picture. The bottom half-inch of the screen is whitened out.
The center band stretching the width of the screen is displaying the normal desktop. However the picture vibrates and shifts constantly.
Is this a driver issue? A BIOS issue? A Vista issue? A LCD screen panel issue? What do I do to fix it? Its like everything is in motion and off-center at the same time.
Please advise me soonest. I will try to capture some screen shots and post them later.

No. The malfunction occurs during all phases of operation:
1. BIOS startup,
3. Windows Start up
4. Sign on
6.During application opperations
7. During web browser use.
I can not determine whether or not the problem is a hardward issue, a software issue or a combination of the two issues.
Since the problem manifested itself after I had abruptly interrupted a Windows Vista 64 Crtitical Update I hqave assumed that the issue is a software one. But I could be in error.
