Probably a faulty graphics card caused by a voltage spike when you connected the monitor to your graphics card (you did turn of the monitor before connecting it to your computer didn’t you?)

no i didnt but the snow was on there before but it will still start in safe mode. I just took apart my comp to look for dust and objects my nefew desides to put in it and my fan isnt working on my 7900gt i have a 17cm side case fan and a 14cm fan for my processor so i think it might be burning out. i also looked at the card itsself and it had these metal squares on it that looked burnt dunno tho also my monitor shuts itself off when not plugged into anything it worked fine when discconected it and when i plugged it in nothing restart wouldnt load windows

because when you start windows your graphics card has to work harder when the drivers load and that makes it over heat and so it fails completely or sometimes makes it get confused and try to write the wrong information into the wrong place on your monitor it's really bad that your fan is not spinning and now you have to throw out that video card and buy a new one
