So I turned my computer off last night and went to bed, came back this afternoon and my computer had thick vertical lines of distorted pixels on the screen during bootup. After the windows start screen, everything went black yet i could see the monitor was still lit. I have since cleaned out my entire computer and pulled out my Radeon 6850, sprayed it down with cleaner, and re inserted it. Still no luck, and this problem is identical on both of my monitors.

I'm curretnly typing this from my laptop using one of my monitors so I know it isn't a problem on that end. I was wondering if this is a known problem/can i return my card for a new one? I built this computer in december of 2011.
