HELP! Very weird boot screen!

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone,

Attached is the screen I get when I turn on my computer. I turned it off after working on it, went downstairs to eat dinner, turned it back on, and this is the screen I got. This worries me alot! I've never seen anything like it. I cleared CMOS, removed my HS and reset it to make sure my CPU hadn't blown or anything, and I reconnected everything from my PSU. When I turn it on, everything turns on fine, fans and all, but my screen looks like that. I also took my my GFX card (was using X300SE card at the time) to check for burn marks or anything but everything was fine. My momitor even realized it had been unplugged when I took out my GFX card.

Can someone please help with this I am really worried!!!

I can try another monitor, no GFX or another mobo at this point. I dont think it is the GFX because when I unplug the monitor it shows one of those no signal messages. Motherboard seems to be fine, all lights are on and makes the post beeps at startup. The only thing I could think of is the HD got extremely corrupt. But before I turned it off I was formatting and reinstalling windows, maybe it just blew my HD up. I do have another HD I could try.

Bump, please help!

*EDIT*

I have determined that my PSU, HD, DVDRW, and monitor are not the problem. I doubt it is my RAM or DFI board either. I believe it is the X300SE video card that is in it right now. That makes sense right?

Okay, Is it the X300 or the 7800 having this issue? If its the 7800, Its the memory, Because its a known and common issue when a memory chip fails.

That's definetly a device failure, and i'd bet it's GPU because last night my old MX440 died and that's all it would display.

The X300SE is in the computer when this problem is happening, my 7800gt is in an RMA process and not even hooked up to anything. I really hope it is the GFX because it only cost me $30...Is that what you think it is? Is there any way to tell for sure because I dont have another one I could try...

Well, I don't know if it extends over to the lower end ATI cards, Just keep your fingers crossed I guess...

i think it's the vid card. i've had a similar problem once when my vid card failed. there was a random display of characters on the screen during boot up.
