This is the dos screen before start up. Normally your motherboard and cpu go through a quick self test and then your hard drive and os start up. What is happening with yours is it is not passing its self test. What you should do is remove and re-seat the memory cards and hard drive in your computer and then try and start it up. If this does not work it means either *********** board or your cpu have failed.

Two possibilities, your backlight is loose and needs checking or even replacement, or the cable connecting your screen is loose or mulfunctional. The first case if the most likely and common case. Considering how narrowly your screen connects with the rest of the computer and how on many occassions people 'just looove' to swing that screen around, it comes as no surprise that after a while it would start acting up. If you're into dismantling and reassembling computers, well, try and access the cables connecting your scree, check them and make sure they are okay, next, check your backlight and all its connections just to make sure everything is seated okay [all the above will require that you open a few things here and there] Good luck
