Initially what I suspect is that the appropriate driver(s) for your video card/chipset was not installed.

Could you pls post back with the make & model of your PC (and/or your video card/chipset) and Operating System?

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    If your Operating Systems is Windows XP, then your video driver would be sp26286.exe.

    Incidentally, all the other drivers for the XP version of the HP Pavilion 423 Desktop PC maybe found here.

Locked out osb by computer virus which resides in video memory

Video memory should be very similar to a memory resident virus, but I have never experienced one that attacks video memory specifically (yet). If you have a windows OS, then you can try the the following:

  • 1

    Start your computer in safe mode by hitting the F8 key repeatedly as you turn it on. Even if your computer can still start normally, a memory virus could make the following steps take a very long time under normal settings.

  • 2

    Run the Windows Malware Removal Tool. To do this, c

    Click the Start menu and click "Run". Type "MRT" (with no quotes) when an input box appears and then hit "Enter". This starts the Malware Removal Tool. If you encounter problems, you can download a replacement for free from Microsoft (see Resources).

  • 3

    Click once on the "Next" button.

  • 4

    Click once on the "Full Scan" selection. The "Full Scan" offers a better chance than the "Quick Scan" of removing a memory virus.

  • 5

    Click once on the "Next" button. You may wait up to an hour for the scan to complete.

  • 6

    Follow the steps that appear on the screen to remove the memory virus.

  • 7

    Click once on the "Finish" button.

  • 8

    Restart your computer.

  • Hope this helps,

    type of virus, have a good anti virus to check whether it can be removed or not. I recommend to use avast or eset nod32. If your computer running badly, do a backup on your system in safe mode and then do a full format of your pc and start fresh using your product key with yr operating system.

    Monitor turns on for about ten seconds then the

    something like this happened to my comp. once, and it was because my cpu wasn't properly cooled. the fan on the cpu had been disconnected from the power supply. if a cpu gets too heated it can cause a lock-up or reboot, and can eventually damage the cpu. so, that would be the first thing i would check. a virus is also a possibility. if you have virus software try booting from the virus software cd-rom. if you can get into your bios setup by pressing 'delete' during the boot process you can change the boot sequence under one of the options there. put the cd-rom as your first boot device. i use norton's anti-virus, and it allows a scan for viruses before going to the 'desktop'.
    of course, if you already have a functional anti-virus program it probably would have caught it without doing any of those steps.
    good luck. keep us up-to-date on your situation.

    Orange screen

    You may have a virus, they usually affect your background screen on your computer and they can be nasty and aggressive. I have fought many and it's not easy to beat them even with virus protection. First do not take any random offers for virus protection that may pop up, second go with a well known virus protection program like mcaffe or norton. These are well worth the price and subscriptions are usually for a year. Purchase one of these from your computer and let it run, follow the instructions to eliminate any possible threats and if this doesn't resolve all the issues don't get upset the virus protection is very good but even they may not work completely if you infact have a virus already on your computer. it never hurts to employ the services or the geek squad or those fox people.
