Do you have antivirus software installed on your PC?

If yes, run a check of your system. If no, download, install and run one. I've heard good things about "Avast"

Do you have antispyware software installed on your PC?

If not, I highly recommend you download, install, and run "Malwarebytes" (google that). It sounds like you may be getting stuffed up with spyware.

If you do have antispyware installed, run it and if it isn't the app I mentioned above, download, install and run it too.

Also, you might want to check and see if there is a more up-to-date driver for your video card and if there is, download and install that too.

Try the system file check, it sounds as though some system files may be corrupted. Click on start then run and type in
sfc /scannow Note the space between c and /. This will replace any system files that have changed. You may need your XP CD. The scan may last awhile so be patient. The event viewer will show any changes that have been made.

done that but im guessing nothings changed because the event
viewer hasnt come up :(
just gone into the bios and it says there is nothing connected in
the pci port where my graphics card is. im guessing theres a
fauly with the card even though it displays onto the monitor.
anyway of detecting it, i thought drivers do that or will i have to get a new gpu? :(
just thought, is it worth me doing a system restore?
