Black screen on boot, external monitor shows bsod
compaq presario cq42
I plugged in the laptop to another monitor since it would not recognize the main display, during boot, it shows red lines across the whole display and right after boot there are lines across the whole display and could only run on 16 colors (not the monitor fault, i tested it with another laptop) after downloading the video drivers, i rebooted and got the blue screen saying: attempt to reset the display driver and recover from timeout failed, then the laptop restart by itself but the laptop backlight is on and the external monitor shows it stuck on the compaq boot screen (but without the logo and any text). Do i need yo change my motherboard since its a graphics problem or what should i do?, i just reinstalled Windows 7 Home Premium on it since Windows 10 would give bsod with error video tdr failure (which is the same thing as the current bsod i have right now)
Is this a good question?
