Hello everyone. My PC froze up while I was playing a game. I had to manually restart the PC and when it was finished booting up, the monitor would then shut off and give me a message saying "No Signal." I had this problem before so I just restarted my PC and then I got the Safe Mode menu, but most of the letters on the menu were mixed up and scrambled. Safe mode would be "Iafe Mole" for example. I can login in safe mode but System Restore has done nothing and I cannot get my PC to run with regular settings as the monitor keeps shutting off. I cleaned out some dust from the PC as well. I have read it may have something to do with the video card, but I'm still a bit lost. Any idea/suggestions on what the problem is or how to fix it? Thanks!

Could be bad video memory
What type of system is this? Make model etc
You might want to open the case (powered off & unplugged of course) . See if the video card is integrated. If it is not take the card out and reseat it. Maybe it is just loose.
In the beginning there was the command line.

AMD Athlon 64 Processor
2.20 GHz, 1.00 GB of RAM

Video card
n6600 256mb

Thanks for the reply. I'll try to reseat the video card.

Edit: Loose video card doesn't seem to be the problem. Reseated it and it sits firmly and the monitor still shuts down after the Windows loading screen and the jumbled safe mode menu still appears on the restart after this occurs.

I'm really terrible with computers so please forgive me for any silly questions/responses I give. :thumbsup:
