Try booting safe mode as well as what the BIOS screen shows.
Try an external monitor and post results.

Version won't matter here.

I hope this issue is not hardware which is why we test at the BIOS screen, Safe Mode and external display to sniff it out.

Drivers dsiplay

Would you think it would be the display adapter my display driver is a nivda geforce gtx

No. Why?

Because I've used those sort of machines for years. GTX does not mean death.

The tests I do as noted above give me direction.

I guess for some that's not possible so it's time to hit the shop counter for estimates. My bet is they'll wipe the drive (good thing PC users backup a lot) and if that fails they'll tell you it needs a new motherboard.

Mother Board

If i get a new mother board should I get my usb and move all of my programs i need to it.Or could all of this be malware or a virus.Cause my antivirus and antimalware arent as good.

Until the safe mode, bios and external monitor tests....

I would not diagnose this yet.

Why is it not possible to get at least 2 out of 3 tests done by now?


As to moving programs, that discussion is done. Programs don't move in spite of what claims I see today. We move files. We install OSes and apps (programs.)

Screen

Would it be a video cord that could be loose.

You are asking me to guess.

I prefer to do my 3 tests before I go so far as to call it a loose cord.

I bet its the lcd cable any idea how to fix it or how to take the screen of for i can fix the cable cause its probably loose i checked the mother board everything every thing is fine.I just need to fix the lcd cable.

That would be a first.

The cables used today are replaced and rarely fixed. I worry that you didn't complete the tests yet and want to plow ahead.

If that's what you want, then do that.

How do i fix it

So thats what I will try first.So how would I fix the cable on a ASUS G75V.

- Collapse -
The answer to fixing a cable would be

To repair what's wrong with it. Here I rarely see that done since most of the cables in laptops are flat ribbon things that you can't fix. Only replace.

But you can test a cable. If you repair cables you also know how to test cables.

This is a lot of posts and yet I see no tests performed.

Why can't you get the basic tests completed?
Also, if you are convinced it's the cable, replace it.

All is good now.

Thanks for your help I did everything you told me to do.And now everything is fixed.Get this.A cord was disconnected from the motherboard so everything is solved!
