  1. When I first turn on my computer, my monitor displays the initial screen (motherboard name, instructions telling me to press DEL for setup, etc.) and then goes beserk:
    I can't use the reset button on my case, so I have to turn my computer off by using the surge protector. When I try to turn my computer on again, it stops posting. I haven't changed any settings or downloaded any programs that could have caused something like this to happen. Is this caused by specific hardware, and is there any way to fix this?

    Do you have a spare graphic card? I suspect it may be an graphic card issue.
