My daughter was running SIMS2 and then shut down the computer.
Next I tried to turn back on and my video (19" newer LCD) will not display. I took and older LCD from their pc and it works.
I noticed however that boot up is painfully slow. On power on the cursor will show in the upper left corner no flashing just on. It stays like this for minutes. Then Win XP will start and the pc runs normally.
It seems to not like something in the POST maybe? It shows no memory run up or anything just the cursor. Checking BIOS does not reveal anything to me.
Does anyone have some ideas to check? Also, before I buy a new LCD can these two oddities be related?
