Question about Computers & Internet
Hi. I just turned on my pc ( it has xp home) and firstly the mouse wouldn't work then the monitor was full of rectangular coloured boxes,single letters ,symbols like ? and more .I turned the pc off then started it again and now the monitor is just black.
What is the problem? Is it the monitor or the pc tower .The pc is a Compaq Presario SR1799AN. How can I fix this problem. I can't even Press a f10 key or whichever on comes on display to do a recovery because the monitor is always black.

Ok here we go, the guy above is right in the sense that your video card is broken, but what he didnt check is if its onboard video or a seperate video card, can u say which it is? and also if it is onboard video, do you have an agp/pci express slot(pci express is NOT the same as standard pci), the problem you are describing points to whatever video adapter you are using, does the pc beep in any way at all?
