While trying to minimise my old backup, the video to my monitor stopped. I was using visipics to detect duplicate image files to delete the unwanted dupes. I'm almost certain the issue is malware related as I was digging through old, very likely corrupt/dirty files. I didn't think to try my onboard video and am scared to have the same thing happen to my main board as I want to complete the same task. I haven't tried the nvidia card in another computer yet but will do that as well. Does this problem sound familiar to any of you? I'm thinking I'd have better luck doing this on a mac... Your thoughts? Thanks in advance.

One sad panda,

Chris

It would help to know the make and model of this computer.

 

Have you tried to do a System Restore?

 

For the corrupted files you could run sfc /scannow.

I'll gather model specs, until then, mono is MSI, CPU is i5, GPU is nvidia 8800gt. I have no video so I'm unable to work in the OS, win7. I'll try plugging into onboard video, fingers crossed. Thanks for the reply.

You will need to remove the dedicated graphics card in order to use the integrated graphics.
