2 Gigs of ram (less than a year old, newly purchased. Two 1012 sticks.)
GeForce Ndvida 7300 Series video and audio card.
PEntium D 3.20 GGHZ processor
Moniter: Proview 30 inch moniter with high resolution support (though right now Iss running on 800 by 600 I think.)
Alright so a few months ago I was running my Hp Media center comp on XP, when I ran into a trojan problem. Ultimately it was resolved when I used my Vista disc to reformat the comp and replace the OS. I used the product key code and all that, and things were going swimmingly... I've recently moved into a new house, and the people working on it had to shut down the circuit breaker once or twice without me knowing. ( my comp was home online, as I was out.) I came back to my moniter faded out, just black. I restarted it and tried booting it from the hrddrive with my OS on it. I gets as far as a black screen til my moniter reads "MODE NOT SUPPORTED." with H: 11.7KHZ V:52.7HZ reading at the bottom... when restarted normally, all that shows is is a black creen with th escreen light dim. I thought it might just be the moniterso I tried a different one. It did no good. I lef the comp on for about an hour ater attempting to boot it with the "mode not supported mode." I made sure it wasn't just booted, but the display wasn't working. Not the case because I hit the power button once and it shuts down immediately. ((Opposed to holding it.)) I managed to put the VISTA OS install disc in again and reformat it again thinking it might do something. I ran the Startup repair and the bar goes for about 2-3 hours before nothing happens. I see the background in the system recovery options- Because of the recent wiping of hard-drive I have no backup, I can't restore it to an earlier time... Is there any solution? OR anyway I can check to see what exactly is wrong. If there's anything I have to do via command prompt or even removing hard-ware I'm up fofr it outside of asking me to buy a new video card to test if it's that. My tower is extremely compact, and I can't mov etoo much around for fear of violating the warranty. I also can't seem to hit f10 to get to system restore.
