Hey there guys. Let me give you a few summaries which may help with resolving this issue.
Summary 1: How did I hear about this site?
After my parents constantly flipping out about my mom's computer going bad, I decided to take matters into my own hands. A simple Google search led me to a thread of a user assisting another user on nearly the same problem (black screen virus). I decided to give it a shot myself
Summary 2: WTF is going on with the computer?
Well, it is crap. You guys can see from the image attached what it looks like. Here are some parametric tests I tried:
- I tested the computer without internet. It works fine. When I connect it to the internet, a few minutes will pass smoothly until I hear a sound resembling that of a usb being entered into the computer (like a new device found bling) and the whole screen goes to sh**.
- I downloaded a virus scan. Specifically Avira. I figure you guys will be able to resolve it better, though.
- I haven't exactly eliminated the whole hardware issue out of the equation. Could be a video card, but might as well get your opinions before shelling out for a new one.
Summary 3: Why am I here?
I need your help. It looks like there are some pretty intelligent people on here and I'm all about intelligent people.
