  1. When powering on pc the monitor flashes between digital and analog as opposed to reading no signal.

    The screen continually stays black and im unable to enter bios/boot in safe mode.
    Basically pc powers on and nothing happens.

    After 10mins or so it will sometimes turn itself off.

    I have switched out a disk drive and ive had numerous virus attacks prior. whats the problem?

    So... your computer is on, but you can see nothing? After 10 minutes the moniter shuts off or the computer shuts off? More info would help, but, so far what I can figure, 1 your moniter is dead: get a new one, 2 your psu is faulty: get a new one, 3 your graphics device is faulty: get a new one, 4 your computer is overrun with viruses: get a sledge hammer and have at em

    If you wanted to format your hard drive I'd recommend Darik's Boot and Nuke. Quite the tool when it comes to deleting data for good.
