If you are having video issues, I would suggest looking at power supply, RAM, then video card. I was working on a PC last week that would sometimes boot with video and sometimes would not. Found that 1 stick of the 4 that were installed had gone bad.

Just a thought, fyi.

Get a better brand of PSU. IMO, most likely your issue.
