My computer starts with strange graphics and then doesn't start... black screen Tags: Laptops Computers Graphics Last response: February 20, 2014 1:45 AM in Laptops & Notebooks Share juanpgiraldo February 18, 2014 3:25:26 AM A few days ago, my computer suddenly starts showing me a bunch of strange colors on the screen. I turn it off and then turned it on again. Once I turned on, the VAIO logo was flickering, as well as the Windows logo. After this, was on a black screen without any response or graphics. I tried to access the BIOS was also with black stripes and the letters seemed to be changed (as shown on the image attached). What should I do? https://www.dropbox.com/s/8926kbj5uzv5k9a/20140217_1219... https://www.dropbox.com/s/lbso7brdmpbxcnh/20140217_1220... https://www.dropbox.com/s/wz1e6qudrvvie2l/20140217_1220... https://www.dropbox.com/s/8nmi4ogxrj6umic/20140217_1219...

I gave time to save the data... but gradually, it started to loss the image. Like ghost images and multicolor lines. Later, blinking and later on completely black again. https://www.dropbox.com/s/v7mu7vgf8i27oxu/la%20foto%201...
