    Sounds like a graphics bug that occurs based on some kind of race condition. Can you provide detailed specs for the machine? Googling that model name brings up nothing matching n11ax .
    Any bios settings related to graphics or video might be good to experiment with, but you could also see if attaching an external display helps - either during or after starting up.

    What I found on a search is it has a AMD Radeon HD 8670M onboard graphics. After doing some more searching around it seems AMD graphics still doesn't have great support, is this still the case? BIOS is very limited on what can be done, and nothing in it for graphics. Will try a external monitor tomorrow and see what happens.

    I definitely would suggest trying an external monitor - if you can get through to a login screen, you should update to v80.3 on our beta channel to see if the behavior is improved there.

    Booted up this morning, It worked fine, decided to change to the beta channel any way. Have rebooted about 10 times and works every time, Can't get it to show the lines on the screen again, Fingers crossed it is fixed.

    Cheers for your help
