    Doh, didn't think to use a TV (don't have one but used a housemates). Thanks the for that.

    Same problem using his TV, so it's not the monitor. Any idea why I don't get a picture at all through a standard DVI cable but it's fine through a DVI - VGA cable?

    I'm assuming the problem is the graphics card, but how likely is it not to be that but something else considering the lack of DVI output and the yellow horizontal lines through DVI - VGA?

    I'm hoping it's the graphics card. It's a 4/5 year old PC but before this, I was happy with the performance I was getting so won't mind just getting an upgraded GPU, if it's something else then I might just wait until I can buy a brand new rig.

    Thanks again for the help.
