Similar questions have come up in the last couple of weeks, different color stripes, some pink some blue, but the same kind of issue. In each case it has turned out to be a failure in the graphics module. Take your iMac to an Apple store genius bar and have the techs test to be sure what the problem is and decide what you want to do to resolve the problem.

You are very welcome.
I hate having to replace computers, get attached to them, but having the geniuses check this one out will save a lot of frustration. A couple of these past discussions went on and on and on until the person gave in and did what you have done. If it is hardware there just isn't anything on-line help can do about it. Good luck tomorrow and if you have a chance, post the results...we are all fellow users on here and like to hear the resolution to problems.
