I will most likely try Plan B first then Plan A. Because I dont have a VGA cable plugged in.

Unfortunately I slept in and have to rush out to work this morning. When I come home later I will start right away.

I was going to ask, do you think some of my hardware is defective? Or is it a virus/malware/worm?

Hi kinyo,

1. All of the malwares should have been wiped when we done first recovery. So no, were not worried about viruses anymore.
2. Have a read here and you'll find problems similar to what we are encountering. Maybe you have an old monitor (tuck in basement) with using the old vga?

Close the computer cover then connect your video card to the computers internal vga port.

I removed the Video Card. What do I do next? How do I connect it to the internal VGA port? I see another blue plugin on the back. But it is not being used.

For the moment all I have is a DVI (the white one) and I have an HDMI. I will try to get a VGA. (Going to a friends house right now to see if I can borrow it. Will be back later.)

Doesn't look like I can get my hands on a VGA cable. If it is very important then I will go and buy one. If we can do it without, then lets do that.

How many video ports do you see at the back of the computer? Does your monitor cable fit in to any of those ports?

Yeah, Windows says "Setup is preparing your computer for first use"

Then a pop up with a red circle and a X in it comes up and says "The computer restarted unexpectedly or encountered an unexpected error. Windows installation cannot proceed. To install Windows, click "OK" to restart the Computer, and then restart the installation."

Since we dont have a VGA cable yet. I'd like you to try this.

Start the recovery again.
Now when we get to the part that windows is going to restart for the first time, while the computer off, disconnect the monitor cable and let it run for a good 5 minutes (or up until you noticed that harddisk activity has already ceased). Connect monitor after this and post what is on the screen.

Restart computer, press F8 until the boot menu shows up.
Choose VGA mode. Lets see how far will it go.
