Unhappy Huge Problem! Im Totally Lost :(


i need major help

i installed a computer game and it said it required a file to run. so i went on the net and downloaded a file called "3dfx" and then this file said i needed to "opengl" so when i did. then it went to open the game by itself and then it crashed!!!

now when i turn the computer on the monitor wont start. the green light just flashes. it doesnt show the bios stuff at the start. the harddrive just loads up.

i dont know what to do. i think the file has changed the monior or video settings so it wont even start. i would reinstall windows or format the cpu but i cant see whats going on. any ideas?

im really worried
