Bad Graphics Card = Boot Problems?????
I just want to know if it's possible that the severe bootup issues I've been having of late could be the result of a bad/failing graphics card.
The reason I ask is because the display went all squiggly on me at the same moment I started having problems getting my pc to boot up.
I just assumed all this time that whatever problem was causing the boot up issues was also making the screen messed up. But could it be the other way around? Would a bad graphics card cause Windows to snag while booting?
As it stands I'm just barely able to get it to boot up in safe mode, which is what I'm running now.
It's a 2 1/2 y/o HP Media Center pc with Athlon X2 processor, Samsung SyncMaster monitor, ATI Radeon Express Graphics Card.
