So my PC just started doing this. I have had this unit for around 6-7 years and I believe it is the graphics card but I am not sure.

What do you guys think?

I tried cleaning it and getting all of the dust off of the fans but that didnt seem to help any.

Ok, so I plugged the monitor directly to the motherboard slot and it seems to be up and running.

the card I was running was a NVIDIA 8600GT 1g. do you guys i get another video card? I dont really have the funds for an entirely new system yet

Sounds like your GPU is screwed. Although you could try cleaning the contacts with something like a pencil eraser and reseating it.

Would agree the GPU has gone the way of the dodo bird. Looks like bad VRam to me.
