Switched it on on Monday and got nothing but a black screen with a pane saying that "The video could not be played", or something similar..

Now having googled, I have booted in safe mode and changed resolution. Fine in safe , no dice on normal boot.

Tried updating drivers. Fine in safe , no dice on normal boot.

Various other googled suggestions. Fine in safe , no dice on normal boot.

Finally it was suggested that "Intel(R) HD Graphics Family" driver be uninstalled and reinstalled...... This worked and the screen was visable but the resolution, even after trying to make it more easily viewed, was horrible. Now it only has "Standard VGA graphics adapter" and it won't allow me to download the driver.

I have run Malwarebytes, CCleaner and Advanced systemcare. It won't allow me to system restore from any point....

Any ideas?
Hardware. Probably the display chip is toast, I'd check with an outboard card using the same chipset.

I just read where they were running security tools and safe mode and it wasn't headless which in no way suggests the possibility of motherboard or GPU failure..

In fact after reading all the posts I still don't see anything where the problem was actually diagnosed. This looks like every other piece of tech-support you've gave here..

You seem to be the hard disk formatting type of computer expert who has probably been sitting at computers for decades but couldn't solder a SMD or build a GIT repository.. I'm sure your shovel and dirt expert friends here will back you up though..

You're going to have to open up the computer or get someone in.

If you have a graphics card installed remove it and see what that does, sometimes a fucked card will just keep fucking your system up, if you have no card then the motherboard graphics chip is suspect, which may mean a new MB or computer.

Not sure what's in the puter, or what you are looking for, take photo's and post them, philo is the mega expert here, ignore the xaviour cunt.

Jeebus dude, Who pissed in your cornflakes? Sorry I hurt your widdle feelings.
That was however a pretty funny rant. Useless as hell, but funny. Do you actually honestly understand what any of those acronyms you chunked out there mean?

And for your Info, I have nothing to prove to you, nothing.Even if you did get your feathers all ruffeled.

I do not work For any company, persay, only under contract. I am the owner and CEO of a support co, with over 40 employees. Imagine that.

Why do I know the resolution of this inquisition you ask yourself? Because I bothered to follow up with the client to confirm the situation was resolved. Why, Cause its my job, nature, and not to toot my own horn, I am damn good at it. After 20+ years of anything, most folks are pretty good at whatever that task is.

EDIT
Anyway, have yourself a wonderful day young man..

This is why I like mechanical things...

Computers do follow the same sort of process I suppose, my brain just responds well to physically moving items. I like to be able to follow every step, it requires no logic, it just is. I spent three days last (long) weekend stripping, repairing and making beautiful, various components of a motorcycle 10 months younger than me. I was in heaven....

Ask me to do the same with a computer and I'd,
1) Have a tantrum.
2) Have a mild stroke (not in a good way).
3) Attempt what little I know.
4) Not be too proud to ask someone who really knows.
