I'll skip the long into as I don't want to waste anyone's time, and get right to the meat of the problem. Basically, I came into possession of a computer from a friend who was making room in his flat. It worked excellently at first, then started failing and I don't know why. Here is the short version of the series of unfortunate events =P
I started getting blue screens a while ago, then after a while, I got graphical issues. I promptly tested the two cards I have and both work fine. I then tried putting in different RAM, and no change in the problem. Now, whenever I boot up, I am immediately greeted by crazy pixelation on the startup message. This pixelation continues into the desktop and I cant really do anything. I dont know whether this is a motherboard issue or not. I want to install WindowsSeven but need to fix this issue first. Any help will be greatly and sincerely appreciated. Thank you community!
