My system has been running fine for the last two years until this morning. I left my computer running over night and when I woke up the system was off. I turned on the system and it did not boot into the normal post info screen. It showed a "No data connection" message on the monitor then about 30 secs in it boots into windows.
And then once im in windows the resolution is scaled all the way down to its lowest setting and it does not allow me to change resolutions.
Troubshooting Iv attempted so far:
1. I thought it might be my video card so I reinstalled my drivers; same issue.
2. I removed all drivers and put in my old 8800gt but same issue.
3. I tried resetting CMOS by removing the CMOS battery for 5 minutes and putting it back in but same issue.
So im not sure what to try next. I would take it in to a local computer repair shop but im recently unemployed and this close to Christmas I have no funds. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
