  1. Over the past few days my monitor has lost it's signal when booting into windows, just after the Windows loading screen. Last night I was playing World of Warcraft and my computer went nuts :hotbounce , losing the signal again. Now I have no signal whenever windows boots...

    Video Card : NVidia GeForce 6800 OC AGP (256Mb)
    Windows XP Professional Corporate

    Any Ideas? Thanks in advance.

    The problem could be your video card. How long have you had the video card?
    If the problem persist well its time to get a new video card.

    Good luck,

    I somehow fixed the problem, I uninstalled and then reinstalled the vid card drivers then updated them. I think it was a problem with the windows version I was running because I had just formatted. Computer is back to runnin doom3 RoE at ultra graphics now. Thanks for the feedback.
