Question about Gateway 500XL PC Desktop
No additional hardware was installed recently. Computer was working fine except for an interesting shutdown issue (despite many attempts to fix, the computer would simply reboot instead of shutdown from windows xp). One day after installing and playing neverwinter nights 2, my computers video would freeze or crash (irregular video patterns would appear on the screen the would no longer respond to any commands). At first no video would appear on boot up. Lights flash, hardrives spin up, fans work, no beeps though (although do not remember there being beeps before). Just a blank screen. I unplugged my power, video card, and ram. Cleaned dust from everything. Plugged it all back in and powered on. The first time it got all the way to the windows loading screen then turned black (monitor light orange). Rebooted then it went to windows. It appeared to be random. Windows would run from 10 minutes to all day. After it crashes it seems to be random when it will turn on and actually boot up. I continually clean try again. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. Recently I have been unable to get video on boot up despite any attempts.
Have you tried to uninstall the vedio driver and reinstall it then let me know.go to my computer icon right click it > go to properties >hardware tab > device manager and check if there is any yellow mark showing.kindly do this in starting your computer in safe mode.
