Last night I closed the IE and opened a game. This is normal and has never caused a problem before. The PC crashed. Hm, I thought, so rebooted.Now upon restarting dollar symbols are appearing in rows horizontally across the monitor in the initial posting screens. Then at the next posting screen, yellow vertical lines appear. The Windows xp loading screen comes up as normal without interference or oddness, then the screen goes blank and nothing at all!Any ideas - graphics card broken?
Check the colour/resolution/refresh rates first - they may have become corrupted.You may need to reinstall your graphics card drivers otherwise.
Thanks.But, after the Windows loading screen has finished I lose total display and end up with a black screen of nothing. So can't get to do anything.
Boot to safe mode (F8 while first booting select safemode from menu)and uninstall the graphics driver.reboot and reinstall your graphics drivers.
K, thanks.I'll give it a go; only problem I envisage is that it's difficult to make out 'safe mode' with all the weird crap interfering!
If the "weird c**p" is during the text screen when booting - then it won't be resolution/colour/refresh settings or the driver - as neither are operative at that stage.I suspect your graphics card is broken.Try reseating it in it's slot - check if the fan is still working (if it has one.)
