Hi all,

 

When I start my computer, I get this weird error screen as shown on the image attached. At first, I thought it was a crashed hdd but it won't even procede to the moment of reading the harddisk and Windows. What could this be? Please help.

 

Thanks in advance.

Hello, Do you see a bios screen or any other logical output on your screen besides the lines in the attached picture? 

Also have you tried another monitor on the PC?

When I press the power on button, I hear a beep and shortly after that the above screen shows up. After that, nothing happens. No other screens, nothing. The only screen that shows up is the above screen. Nothing before that screen and nothing after.

 

The monitor works perfectly on another PC.

Does the PC have an add in Video Card or is it using the onboard video card/port? If it is onboard it would appear as if the motherboard(more specifically the GPU) has failed. If it has a secondary video card you can try removing the card from the pc and plugging in the monitor to the onboard video port.

I tried another add in video card in the computer and it worked! The fan of the other video card had loads of dust in it and couldn't rotate at all. The video card most likely overheated and burned itself.

 

Thank you very much for your help jesseschiffres.

 

Problem solved!
