The family computer has broken once again while I attend college. Below are two screen shots I have taken of what the issues are.
I installed the Nvida driver and it did not fix my resolution and the Nvida control panel states there is no such Nvida GPU attached. I cannot find the correct driver for the 1394 OHCI compliant host controller in the second screen shot. I recently attempted to boot into linux using a live CD and the screen was very messy and unreadable once the desktop was loaded however the pre-loading screen that states "ubuntu 10.10 " with the 4 dashes loaded fine. This leads me to believe it is hardware failure. I will post a screen shot in the future.
I ran out the possibility of viruses; I ran malewarebytes. Ccleaner, and combo fix. I also Ran an SFC to check for system corruption with no sign of OS failure.
I am beginning to think this is a sign of hardware failure but I am uncertain of what hardware. Judging from the IEEE host driver and the video-card driver being unable to work, I have a strong feeling it might be the motherboard. Does anyone know of any diagnostics I could preform?
I forgot there were VGA output integrated into my motherboard as well. Both my video card and the integrated card are the same messy output as shown in the first attachment.
I have ruled out the possibility of hard drive failure with a Vivard scan, the monitor works perfectly fine with my laptop, and the memory since there are no signs of error with a memtest.
It would be greatly appreciated if anyone else could help me with this issue.
