Asus AM2 SLI-deluxe
AMD 5200+ dual core
Nvidia 8800 GT
What I was doing: I was playing DOW2 when my game crashed to a black screen it then flickered for a moment as some blue pixels at the top of the screen showed through, then it went solid black with a lighter black bar across the top, I force restarted. This is the 3rd time this happened to me recently (had not been doing it) but this time when I started up the computer my motherboards logo looked funny, lower quality with misplaced pixels in it. Then on the next screen just gibberish letters randomly placed littered the screen for a bit and it took me to the black screen where I could make out
"Start windows normally"
"last known good configuration"
etc. everything was gibberish letters.
I start it in safe mode, screen feels up with gibberish, starts in safe mode. I pick administrator and my background where it would normally be solid black is like blue wiggly lines across the screen horizontally.
Needless to say I have never seen this before now, I goggled this for a while and found nothing. I assume it's hardware related. I am leaning that my power supply or video card hit the dust. sadly I don't have spares around to test it with.
Could it be system corruption?
Any help would be nice thanks.
