NTSC is the USA standard. PAL is a European standard

by csmith In reply to PAL or NTSC which one to ...

It would seem obvious to choose NTSC in Canada.
However, are you going to be watching mostly European programs? France24,BBC,CNBC, etc.

Now, more relevant information.
Most display problems are caused by corrupt drivers on the software side, and graphics DDR (memory) failures on the hardware side.
If there is a graphics memory problem, you should get a warning message from the BIOS during the POST (Boot phase), but these errors are not usually fatal, so the computer boots, but does not display properly.
