    There are 2 things that can be wrong. Hard Disk or the Display.

    Remove your display chord and see the message flashed.Does it show you the same white mark or is anything different flashes.If that is the case then place the chord firmly and your problem will be solved.Check the entire connection.

    u can check the bios.....if there is any way to connect the PC to a separate display u could try that to rule out the display as a cause.....it could be the cord connecting your monitor to the pc.

    if this is a desktop its extremely rash to say that this is a RAM or a hard drive problem......a malfunctioning display isnt something to lose too much sleep over....especially on a desktop system
