I was using the computer just fine last week, but now when I am trying to boot it up I am receiving an error message. I turn the computer on, the hp logo appears, then i receive a "Check Video Cable !" error message and the computer powers down. I've tried restarting it various ways but nothing seems to work.
EDIT: Listened to the virtual assistant and tried a BIOS restart and now I only receive the"Check Video Cable !" error message occasionally but now with loud beeping. F
