I'm not really sure where to take this problem. I don't know if the issue is related to malware or if it is a hardware failure, but I figured I would start here because the presenting problem is graphics display.
I went to turn on my computer and both monitors were black after selecting to start windows normally. I manually powered off the machine, and I saw two bold red stripes on the boot screen. I was able to log into Windows with Safemode enabled.
Forgive my inexperience. Where do you think I should start in order to fix this issue? I have started a full system scan with the current Microsoft Security Essentials. I have also considered removing my GPU in order to assess whether the computer will boot normally with onboard graphics.
Thank you very much in advance. I will post updates if I find anything in the virus scan report.
