Hello, Hello, I was online playing a game one night on facebook. The screen froze and it looked like data bits jumping all over the screen. I could not shut down the computer. I had to hold in the power button to get it to shut down. Now, I can turn it on, I hear the fan, no beeps and get a "No Signal" message from two different monitors. What do you think the problem is? Please help. This is a 1 year old Lenovo computer.

This sounds like a failure of the video card. If it's a laptop then you need a new motherboard. A desktop can have a new video card added.

Good Luck

its a Lenovo Desktop computer. What is a good video card for gaming but, not that expensive? Is there a place online to get them a little cheaper than normal?

First you need to have a local repair shop run a diagnostic. The problem could be with the motherboard or the video chip. The you way to know for sure is a hands-on diagnostic. You could buy a video card and then find that nothing was fixed and you wasted the money.
