Got my new computer from Avatar (might as well consider it a self built machine - though it does come with a reset disk - which I get the same result as booting from HDD). After I turned the machine on, I see the Windows 8 splash screen, a weird color flicks in about a 20x2 row of pixels. I'm thinking it's the graphics card, but I can't even boot into safe mode - I just get the same black screen with a moveable cursor. I cannot CTRL + ALT + DEL or, as I said, enter safe mode - or any options, for that matter. Help is appreciated, as it is an expensive build for myself and replacement isn't always my best option. Any advice?
