    Please help me. I dont know how to fix my pc.

    Please ignore errors in my writing. I am typing from my phone with no keyboard. I have not had a computer in a month and i dont know what is wrong with mine. I am swallowing my pride as Ive never been this stumped. so please help me.

    Computer starts normally. Mobo screen, bios/boot loader screen, low res wondows 7 start screen then blackness. The operating system is loaded. I can mash keys and noises happen.

    High res video is the problem. I boot in to low res safe mode and it has booted 50/50. Problem is intermittent. A video card swap did not work either. I donno if its faulty memory or a bad video bus on mobo. Os it something else?

    A linux live cd creates the same results. My computer cant handle any video over 800x600.

    Please help before i fade away.

    do you remember making any changes before the problem happened? mobo bios/chip set update?

    Funnily enough, something similar happened to my pc about 12 months ago, which i haven't bothered to fix yet - and I too am waiting on buying a new mobo to rectify it. For quite some years now, I've had to wiggle the graphics card in the slot every now and then to get it to keep working

    So you take the cholesterol from the yokes but don't want fat sausage? That's not right.

    hey, at least my avatar of three simple, single sided shapes and a line is more anatomically correct than yours!! granted, at least your mouth opens and you could at least eat the sausage, and you have funky eyes.

    I too, would like to know what happens if you have/use integrated video out. I'm leaning toward bad video bus.

    Also, are there any fans not working? Check all the little fuckers. I've gotten another year's worth of service from boards for about $10 by replacing a faulty fan.

    If it's a memory issue, IME, you should have been experiencing artifacting prior to this. I've usually seen it present as white pixels where they shouldn't be, leading to other odd things, mostly spatterings of grit and graininess where there didn't used to be such things, presumably because textures were being loaded from corrupted memory locations.
    --Mention of these things is so taboo, they aren't even allowed a name for the prohibition. It is just not done.
