I've been experiencing my pc locking up for some time now, and difficulty rebooting. The last time it happened, it locked up and there were colored spots all over the screen. I tried to reboot, and I get a black screen. The hard drive activity light comes on for a few seconds, and then goes out. The screen stays black and the pc is frozen. Strike a bell with anyone?

No, no beep or anything. The hard drive light activates for a few seconds, and then goes out. The fan keep running though. No commands will work, ...and Boabs, ...do you mean my graphics card? Thanks guys...
