Hai! Eerrmm, it's been a pretty disturbing day for me. I came home only to find out that I get a blue screen on startup. But my definition of "startup" is different I think, I get the bluescreen the second I am logged into windows and the hear the "Be-bo-be-bop". I don't think this isn't your usual bsod case because I don't get any kind of error code, perhaps it's my monitor's way of saying it isn't getting a signal. And I'm really scared it's a problem with my video card.
Right now I have an HD 4890 but I bought it 3-4 months ago after my 4870 "died". Back then when I turned the pc on the fans would blare at high speeds and I would be left with a blue screen. And since the card lasted a good 7 months I didn't pursue it and just bought a new one. Anyways today I tried a couple things but got thwarted. I wanted to uninstall my video driver in case it really is a driver problem and reinstall an update, but apparently you can't uninstall display drivers in safe mode. System restore also didn't work in safe mode. I also tried "enable low resolution video" and "Last known good configuration" from advanced boot options (F8). And lastly I tried to do a startup repair from my installation disc and to great surprise the menu didn't even appear, just the vista background and a movable cursor.
So as you can see i've had horrible luck
This has to be some kind of driver/video card issue, no? My pc is a power house, it's specs are really high so I really don't know what to think. I'm also a newb to this.
