See if you guys/gals have a good grasp on what could be the problem.
Came home and noticed my monitor was in sleep mode- i dont use power saving options since i've had bad experience in the past with it and the PC in this house is mulit user and doesnt sit in sleep much anyway. Anyways i knew i had a problem at this point. PC wouldnt wake up so i hard booted the machine and when turned back on, only colors no text or black/blue screen at all. Post cmos one normal beep sounding like no errors found at this point colors and lines load the monitor and they flash on and off for a minute till it appears the system loads then i get a solid screen of just colors. After about 30 seconds the monitor goes into power saving mode shuts off then comes back on. very confusing.
I pulled memory sticks one at a time , reseated mem card which appeared to have been loose in the socket but didnt change once reseated. everything seems to be spinning and operating and i'm guessing the mem card is fried but i'm not convinced.
and yes i plugged the monitor into the lap tap and it works fine. So any input is appreciated in advance.
