    This evening I decided to reboot my personal computer, which uses Vista. Up until this point it had worked fine, including earlier today. Every time I attempt to reboot it, it starts by bringing up its normal white screen about being a gigabyte motherboard. It then never shows any of the data involved with the reboot - instead, it goes straight to a completely black screen, and stays on it indefinitely. There is a blinking green light on the monitor. As the light blinks, there is a faint "clicking" or "flickering" sound.

    I have attempted multiple computer restarts, adjusting the monitor cords. None of it has had any effect. There is no error message, at least not that I've had the ability to see. As I cannot see anything happening on the screen, I do not know if this is purely a graphics problem or if there is also a problem with the computer.

    Thanks in advance for any advice...
