I was watching a video on a site I shouldn't have. All of a a sudden my screen began to flash (similar to a flashing strobe light) in which the video went to a photo negative type of picture though in primary colors.
The screen then turned black with a bunch of dots. No programs or desk top folders were available. As I could not see my icon I turned off my computer manually after not being able to turn it off with "Ctrl + Alt + Delete". When the computer turned back on it was the same image that I had before I turned it off and I am not able to see the login screen for my password.
I am able to safely boot into Safe Mode and have tried to start my computer with 'System Restore' using a saved time period. This, however, does not resolve the problem as when I go back into regular mode the computer screen appears as before, black with dots.
My computer information is as follows:
OS Name: MS Windows Vista Home Premium
Version: 6.0.6002 Service Pack Build 6002
System Model MXG071
System Type X86-based PC
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo CPU T7700 @ 2.40 GHz, 2394 Mhz, 2 Cores
Bios: Dell Inc AO1, 8/7/2007
SMBios Version: 2.4
System Directory: C:\Windows\system32
Would appreciate any help from the group in resolving my now unoperable computer.
