So, I've been having problems with my desktop as of late. First, it started freezing periodically, but would unfreeze. Then it would start freezing permanently and I'd have to reboot. Then once during a reboot it would go through the bios, start loading windows, but just show a black screen. Sometimes it would instead give me a disk read error partway through the boot cycle, though only sometimes. Now, when I turn the computer on it gives a series of beeps with the post code 2b(or 26, not sure), and then finally settles on 7F. I'll hit F1 and the code then changes to FF, but the screen doesn't show anything, and in fact doesn't even wake up. My monitor has a light that is orange if it's asleep, and green if it's awake, and it's still orange.

I've tried reseating the memory resetting the BIOS, but no luck. Same problem. Any ideas as to what the problem might be?

Edit: Well, I've got it to work now. I both reseated the video card and tried the second HDMI slot on it, so I'm not sure which fixed things. However, I get the sinking feeling it may still freeze soon, though I guess I'll have to wait and see.
