Issue on startup
When i turn on my pc the same 3 patterned images will appear in sequence on the monitor upon switching on the pc. Then after about 20 secs the monitor will go to sleep.
I think i can hear the pc booting and then running as normal, yet i cannot see anything to confirm this. It's quite an old pc and used to be quite tempermental. I've cleaned the inside and rehoused everything as best as I could, but to no avail. I think the issue might be the graphics card, but I don't have a spare to test this out and don't want to purchse a new one unless I'm sure.
Since I can't quite find an exact answer searching online, I'm hoping someone here might be able to help.
Any help gratefully appreciated.
