PC Dead????

First off my system configuration: WinXP Pro; AMD Athlon 2000+, 512mb ram, 80 gb HD, and MSI nforce2 K7ngl.

My desktop has been under a rash of attacks lately. I've cleaned up viruses, cookies, spyware, adware, and checked my ports. Everything was fine until Norton antivirus detected a slew of viruses and deleted them. Didn't really think it was a big deal until the whole screen went blank...then the screen was gone. Literally the monitor cannot detect a video signal.

So is there a fix for this. Since the video is integrated can I just add a videocard to solve the problem or is my motherboard fried.

Have I been hacked? or have my efforts to protect my pc failed?

Thanks in advance if you have any suggestions or answers.

Have you tried booting with the WindowsXP Pro CD in the tray?

Try and find a video card and test it with that.

Sounds like Norton killed the drivers for your integrated video. Pop in your XP installation CD (which you might not have since vendors like to rip you off ) and see if you can see anything. If not, your MB probably is messed.

If you don't have your installation CD, find a working computer and download Knoppix. If it turns out that you have to reinstall Windows, make sure you firewall it before connecting to the internet.

Sounds like something was removed that shouldn't have been. Did you try a safe boot? (f8 before windows gets busy) Virus & spyware recovery is most effective after a safe boot. If all else fails use VGA mode.
