Where's the issue.

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
My girlfriends video card has been acting up a bit. Sometimes she loses all video and the monitor just sits there switching between digital and analog. Sometimes the screen flickers a bit. Today she did windows updates. When it asked her to restart she did. Now all she gets is a black screen with a mouse cursor sitting there. That's if she doesn't get the digital / analog switching instead. Am I looking at monitor? Video card? Something else more sinister?

She can boot into safemode, but the last time she did that it was fine in safemode for a minute or two then started the digital / analog flicker on the monitor.

*EDIT* She ran a windows repair and it seems to be working now... What might have been repaired based on above though?

That is a video card issue. I'm surprised that windows repair helped anything at all. I know in my experience only the system roll back works. I've had to use that several times on crazy lab software that lacks proper documentation.
