Having problems with your Compaq Presario 7478 PC Desktop ?

The monitor on my Presario 7478 comes on, but has b/w "blocks" and other strange figures/lines. The Windows logo displays, faintly, for about 30 seconds. Sometimes, after several minutes, I get a message "It is now safe to turn off your computer" Monitor works fine on another system and different monitor does same thing. Is it my video card?
