A few hours later, while emailing, the screen started flashing in intervals; would go to a black screen, flash, black screen, and then finally landed dead on a black screen never to return. Not really even a black screen, just no screen, and no cursor). I have spent most of the day trying all kinds of things suggested from other sites and am on a last ditch effort here.
The monitor is green light on. I have checked all known connections and am working toward looking at a fluke timing of hardware issues. OR could it have been caused by the Winweb, or possibly I downloaded a bad program to get rid of the malware.
I really need some help here. If it's hardware, I'm taking it in. My high schooler has an entire final writing project on the desktop due tomorrow (we tried to tell him to save it on the his flash) which I'm going to have to completely retype tonight on the laptop. Ugh ~
