    Looks like your Chimei CMV-933A monitor may have a serious problem. Check both ends of the video cable first though to make sure they are plugged in tight. If they are, try plugging the monitor into another PC to see if the same problem happens. If so, the monitor needs to be repaired or replaced.

    Let us know what you find out ...

    no it is neither about the cable nor the monitor..I tried changing the cables and I also connected the cpu on another monitor screen..its still the same.When launching, the screen becomes blurry with pixels failure everywhre..then it becomes partly striped on the "Launch the windows normally" interface as shown in the picture..and after that it keeps restarting coming to the same "launch the windows normally" interface..do u know about what this may concern?

    does it still do the same if you select safe mode

    that should load a set of default graphics drivers with a much bigger screen size
    If you still get the problem in safe mode, then it looks like the graphics card itself has packed up and will need to be changed.
    If safe mode works, then uninstall the graphics drivers in safe mode, reboot & a new set of standard drivers should be installed

    That sounds like it is a defective graphics card
    It is just possible that it has come loose or something, so turn off the computer completely. Unplug it & carefully remove the card. Then put it back in, turn it on see what happens

    I think you might need to replace the card
