not being able to view your screen makes replying with any more helpful answer.

what happens if you enter 'clear'?

When I enter clear, the visible display (brltty) seems ok for a few minutes or perhaps a few lines, then I run into the lines again.

My son was watching the system while it was rebooting the other day, and he said that the display is all messed up even as it is rebooting. I think perhaps my video card is failing.
also, being curious about assistance for impaired vision, i ran a google-linux
search of 'brltty' which yielded 27,900 hits. on first page, i found a link,

https://lists.linux-foundation.org/ \

with a link to brltty mailing list.


if not already on list, you might give it a try.

much luck to you.

peace out.

to mess up an ms windows box, you just need to *look at* it.
