Normally I retsart the computer at least 50 times, turn it off at least 10 times, replug the cabels at least 3 times. Then Windows loads... for a while. Could be 5 minutes, could even be a few hours, but eventually it fails again (screen turns black). *sighs*
At some though (after further rebooting/replugging), it seems to stabilize and once again I get to use Windows indefinitely (or until the next electrical power interruption, anyway). It happened three times so far. This is the third time, and I still haven't recovered from the current one (not sure how long I have before the screen fails again! I hope it's in the stage where it doesn't fail anymore, but pessimistic nature have me doubting it).
By the way, at some point I replace the screen (I have an extra) and cabels, but nada! same exact problem. I suspect it's the graphic card now, maybe it gets a little beaten and takes time to recover every power shutdown? I know, doesn't make much sense... but... really running out of theories here.
Any explanations? or even ideas how to fix it beside my crude routine? I'm seriously desperate, you guys are my last resort.
