My desktop which is tower, running Windows 7 with dual monitors. It was working fine and when I returned home and turned it on it wouldn't boot and the screen was black and full of zeros. My boyfriend said he was on it downloading earlier and it was fine. What happened to my desktop?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Try to boot the computer in safe mode and see if the problem still exists. You can also try disconnecting one monitor. It may be your video card is starting to go or the driver got corrupted. What are the specs for your computer like brand, RAM and video card if it’s a dedicated card and not integrated.

    According to your writings, it seems that, the screen may get problems while power is OK. If that case, you can try to unplug screen's cable, that is monitor's cable and reinsert the same. If this does not help, you can try to connect another screen (if you have) and check if that happens again.

    Perhaps it's a bad connection, hardware failure or a malware infection? Can you try a different monitor? Or, as previously recommended, try booting into safe mode and see if that works.

    Moreover, as it seems, that a hardware issue, it is better to contact a good hardware person, or the vendor for more help. If it is under warranty, you can contact the related vendor's customer care for better suggestions.
