Starting from the beginning - Was playing Minecraft when the computer shut down. Computer rebooted itself and when logged back in it said that there was a driver failure. I missed the driver failure message myself but assumed when told this happened that it was the video drivers because I've been seeing some graininess to the graphics. I installed the updated video drivers and restarted when prompted. Computer restarted but nothing ever came up on the screen. I never even saw the bios loading or anything. After several restarts, checking cables, cleaned out dust in tower, removed and reinstalled VC, and swapped video cables, I finally got an image on-screen. Opening Bios screens had several dots through the texts and on Windows XP loading screen it was covered in green dots. Windows loaded and then Blue screened with the Stop: 0xEA. Researched and rebooted computer into safe mode and uninstalled all the ATI drivers. Restarted, reinstalled drivers, and continued to have issues. Sometimes if blue screens and sometimes it just shuts off on the screen. Computer stays on with no visuals. Attempted to starting computer from last known good configuration which did nothing. Also started computer in VGA mode and allowed me to work on it outside of safe mode but it still continues to shut down visuals after a time. I feel at this point that its the Video Card failure itself but don't want to replace it until I'm positive there is nothing else I can try.
