Last night, I closed to my desktop and flicked the monitor off, but not the computer. I woke this morning and turned the monitor on, but it said it had no signal. I made sure the computer was on and the cord was tight. Nothing happened. I pressed the little restart button. This time I got a image on the monitor. It was checking the RAM in the system, but really slowly until it reached the 384 I have in there. Then this screen popped up and it asked if I wanted to start in safe mode or not. I selected no, figuring it was just a freak thing. The monitor immediatly went black after that. Well, now I was worried, so I restarted by pushing the little button on the tower. This time I selected safe mode. Now a screen comes up with all these lines, all were siimilar, something close to this:
This is as far as I can get. I am frustrated especially since I was going to back up all my pictures last week but never got around to it. If anyone can help me, I would appreciate it. I don't want to lose all my photos and school work. The only I can think that may have caused this is I visited a link in the civil av forum that had some pictures, but was in foreign writing, and it looked awfully suspicious. I am looking for it again now. I wish I could remember.
Thanks in advance,
