I am at a complete loss! I recently moved and when I got my computer unpacked it wasn't working properly, the monitor would come on for a couple of seconds and then goes to black, if you power it of then back on it does the same thing. you can position it just right and still see that XP is running in the background and can move the mouse cursor around. So my first thought was that it's the monitor, so I hooked my boyfriend's brand new monitor up to it (both are lcds), exact same thing. So naturally I assume it must be the video card, so I replace my 2 year old video card w/ his new one and tried both monitors...same thing happens. I am now worried that it may be some sort of virus. I don't know if this has anything to do w/ it but I added my b/f's harddrive to mine to act as a backup storage device, I took his hard drive out and put it back in his system and plugged in his monitor and it has the same response, but his system worked an hour ago...so that's what lead me to my virus theory but I can't find anything online - PLEASE HELP!
