Mickalino Posted March 14, 2011 Share Posted March 14, 2011 I’ve been getting this strange phenomenon on my PC. It will boot up normally from the beginning, but then when it gets to the very last stage of boot-up right before the desk-top show up, the screen becomes black, but it is not a solid black. Around the edges of the screen it fades into a white border. And then, over a few seconds, the middle of the screen very gradually fades into a white, so it ends up with a screen that’s speckled with both black and white. So basically, I keep trying to boot up until eventually after a half dozen tries, the desktop finally comes up. But even then, it’s an even stranger occurrence I’ve never seen or heard of before. The whole desktop screen is shifted to the side or diagonally, so that the left side of the screen ends up offset to the right side, and vice versa, separated by a solid, thick black border right in the middle of the screen. Hard to describe that any better. But, when it’s in that mode, I can’t really do much because a lot of the controls are hidden, due to the shifted screen. My only way out of that, temporarily, is to right-click on the desktop and change the pixels on the desktop to either a higher lower setting, and it re-sets itself, to an apparent normal mode. After that, it re-boots normally for a few times. Then eventually, that “bug” will come back to where I keep getting that funky black/white screen, etc. And have to re-boot about 6 times, often wondering if will start up properly, ever again, and whether it’s finally met its doom. Just wanted to get help before it’s too late, in case it’s a virus that will eventually spread and completely disable the machine. I've already noticed a few other functions are starting to crap out. Like it will not allow me to successfully use "System Restore" much of the time. And it will not allow me to uninstall any programs, to re-install it. Firefox browser keeps crashing, and it won't let me un-install and re-install it. I’ve run anti-virus and several spyware programs, but that doesn’t seem to fix it. Any help ?
