I have vertical lines showing up on my 2.16 GHz 2 GB RAM Core 2 Duo iMac. Any idea what's going on and what I need to do to fix it? My computer is also freezing frequently.

It could be either a driver issue or a hardware problem. If you are still under AppleCare, I would just take it to a Genius Bar so they can do a diagnosis and see if it's a hardware problem (the easier fix). Otherwise, I'd recommend doing a full backup and installing a fresh copy of OSX.

    A lot of times this is usually a hardware issue. Usually the screen or the logic board/graphics card. Make an appointment this a Genius, they do free diagnostic even if you aren't under warranty that way you can at least get help with what may be wrong.
