Well, it can be any number of things. If the lines start immediately after the machine turns on, it could be a cable issue between the CRT tube and the logic board. It could also be a tube that is going bad.

If it starts displaying lines after the machine has been on for awhile, it could be an overheating issue with the graphics chip. That could be related to a fan not running or a bad logic board.

With a machine of this vintage, it's really hard to say.

Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
