Last night the screen on my other comp went black all of a sudden. It was running fine and just flickered for less that a second. Naturally, I tried a reboot. Upon rebooting, The monitor flickered again at the Bios/Mobo Screen and just stayed black.
I've tried two different monitors will the comp as well as 2 or 3 different video cards. I just recently swapped the HDD and the PSU to my e8400 rig. Upon doing this the very first boot, I was able to get all the way to the desktop but during the boot sequence the text was colored Cyan Blue and Light Purple and had some code mixed in. For example the word "have" appeared "ha6e" with the six being the Cyan blue color.
When I tried to reboot into safe mode, the display stopped working all together and I haven't been able to get as much as a flicker out of the rig.
