Sounds like you might have a loose video cable... or a bad graphics module.

How can i fix that if that is the problem? Actually i also experienced the error ati2dvag, I already updated my driver.. I just thought that it is somehow related.. But my problem with my monitor already happened to me even before the ati2dvag occured..

Another thing is, while I am playing games, dota, to be spefic i experienced my screen having vertical rainbow lines.. Just like in tv but mine is more distorted rainbow.. I dont know how to fix it..

Your video card is dying.. Likely the fan is not working and/or the heatsink for the video card is very clogged with dust.

First, open up the case and blow out all of the dust. Then turn the machine on and make sure all the fans spin up. It is likely already too late to save your video board if it won't power up the monitor when turning the system on, though. You will have to buy a replacement card.

Reseat the video card and inspect that everything is plugged in if it has the optional PCI-E pluggs. Seems it might be the video card since you hear the post beep.
