I was playing an on-line game when my computer screen started to jump around. I then got a message that windows shut down my computer because of a problem. I shut off the computer, turned it back on and now all I get is some noise. Any ideas?

If your HP computer refuses to power down, this means that there are still programs open that Windows can't close. Normally when you select the "Shut Down" button from your "Start" menu, Windows closes all open programs, then closes itself, and your basic input/output system (BIOS) turns off all of your hardware. If Windows can't close all open programs, your computer won't be able to power off. This means that you must close these programs yourself.
Right-click on the window of an open program on your Windows taskbar (Bottom of Screen) Click "Close Window." Windows manually closes the program. If a window appears on-screen indicating that Windows cannot get the program to close, click the "Force Close" button in this window to have Windows force the program to shut down. Repeat "Step 1" for any additional programs that are open on your computer. Click "Start." Click "Shut Down." Hope this helps.
The easiest way to fix this or find out what is good or bad without a huge amount of brain power involved is to take your monitor over to a working computer and plug it into that one if the monitor turns on then replace the video card if it does not turn on get another monitor. Or have it repaired! I hope this assisted you. Thanks for using FixYa be sure all the cables pin are also not bent and check connections. Thanks John
Most likely you do not have a video card that supports the game you are trying to play or an older game that may have been created for an earlier OS than 7.
