Hello all, yesterday I was surfing my usual forums and my screen which had been doing odd things for a couple of months now started shenanigans again. Unfortunately this time things didn't go back to normal. I was informed that the video card had failed and windows had recovered. The computer shut down by itself afterwards, which is something I had not seen when this happens. I can not get the computer to come back now, in normal start up or in any of the safe modes. When I start the computer now I get this:
Loading Operating system
Windows error recovery (with booting options)
The four little dots that come together to form the window with starting windows underneath it.
The screen then goes black I get my cursor arrow and it remains that way until I get pissed and shut it down.
Here is a link to what I see on the screen sometimes, fortunately it happened as I was tying this up, I recorded it with my phone. video-2012-01-03-11-16-27.mp4 video by AlanDeVaney - Photobucket video-2012-01-03-11-15-33.mp4 video by AlanDeVaney - Photobucket
Thank you all for any help you can give.
