I've been having some pretty serious problems with my Windows 7 computer for the past month, and I apathetically didn't do anything about them so I probably got what I deserved.
My computer had been erratically shutting down and freezing. Sometimes, I would have to restart every five minutes. Up until today, I attributed the problems to overheating. From time to time, when I booted, my computer said that it had not been properly shut off (because obviously it had frozen so I had to turn it off manually), and that it recommended I scan. I did every single time, without ever finding a problem. I also don't think I have a virus, because I'm religious about scanning with them (I have AVG).

I hadn't used my computer for about a week because it was too unreliable, but I decided to give it a try today. It booted but the screen suddenly turned black and it's now covered in 0s. I have no idea what to do and I really need your help! Thanks in advance!

Does it go past the Windows Logo? Can you go into Safe Mode?

What about your fans and CPU, are they both running?

Could be a number of things.

It is to everyone's advantage to use titles that are descriptive and informative. The title often determines if someone responds, or doesn't.

It doesn't always get past to the windows logo, though it occasionally does, and when it does I'm able to log into safe mode without any problems. The fans are running - how can I tell if the CPU is as well?

@Elvandil, thanks! That makes sense, I'm sorry I hadn't realized.

Hmm. If the CPU wasnt running then you couldnt do any of that lol.

It sounds like your OS might be corrupt. Have you tried a format and fresh install?

If that doesnt fix it then it may be an internal part, like the harddrive
