Re: Monitor or Desktop itself problem?
That status line was designed together with your OS, it seems that your PC was getting slow in boot..
A number of factors, having little to do with the age or capabilities
or your system, can create excruciating system slowness. They include
Operating System File System (how you've organized files on your PC) Applications Hardware
Windows OS (operating system) is notoriously inefficient, which can
affect performance. The file system also impacts Windows and hardware
performance. How you work with applications can improve system speed,
as can some basic hardware updates.

If you are able to connect an external monitor, do so. (If you can make it a newer lcd type) Sounds like your monitor's display is set to the wrong setting (refresh and pixel) With an newer lcd, you should be able to see your screen and reset the display to the lowest setting. Reconnect your Sony monitor. (if the external work and you are able to reset the settings, you do not need to power off your pc, just switch the monitor cable from the external to the regular monitor.
Try these steps:
1. Check the monitor settings. Access the On Screen Display (OSD) Menu System. Adjust the contrast and brightness using the control buttons in the monitor.
2. Run the monitor self test. Unplug the video cable from the computer (cable from monitor to the back of the computer). Usually it has a blue or white connector. Turn on the monitor alone. It should display the self test pattern (white, red, green & blue). If the images are dark in the self test, it is a problem with the monitor.
2. Rotate the monitor to face a different direction. This will help in eliminating sunlight glare which can cause poor picture quality.
3. Test your computer using another working monitor. If the problem occurs in a known good monitor, then it is a video card or motherboard (if your video card is integrated) problem.
I hope these options help.
Check that your monitor is connected properly and tightly to the computer. If it is, then the monitor may be bad. Borrow a friend's monitor and try to see if it works, if someone else's monitor works, then replace your monitor.
Is it possible that your PC or Monitor is just showing more red tones? Have you checked a WHITE background like a blank webpage? Does it have a red tint too?
Do you possibly have speakers or an external fan near your computer or your monitor? If so they sometimes have magnets that will interfere with your screen.
Another thing you might want to check is to unplug the monitor cable that attaches to the computer and check and see if any of the PINS in the plug are bent.
Please let me know how this works out for you.
Try checking the monitor and monitor cord to make sure they are working properly. Try it on another computer and see if the lines are still there. If they are, then you will need a new monitor and if they are not, then you may need a new monitor port for your computer. You will need that checked by a professional to be sure. If you can, open the computer and check the connections from the monitor port to the motherboard and make sure they are ok.
To contact me, just re-post and I will try to answer any questions or comments immediatley.
Could you explain what are you booting from if like you said "no disk drive on this". What was the last thing the member of your family does on that PC? Any new installed programs, or hardware? Does the PC restarts itself after that "full circle" or stays frosen?
