Video card or monitor problem
Posted on 2004-08-29
I have a system that was just formatted and reloaded as of two days ago (low level format to be exact) it was loaded with viruses now it is virus free however now 3 days later when the system was booted the monitor made a popping sound and now the screen is blurry from bootup to desktop and the start button is missing on the desktop among other things....
I know the next logical step would be to connect another monitor, but what I want to know is if their is a physical problem with the video card could it blow up a monitor... I do not want to risk connecting another monitor and blowing it up if the video card has the capability to do that.... The card is integrated into the motherboard it seems a tad flexible but not like where it is freely moving.
