Question about Dell Dimension 8200 PC Desktop
I have a Dell Dim8200 running Windows 2000. I went to boot up the machine after it had been idle for some weeks and the machine boots but the video image flickers and has vertical & horizontal bands and eventually after the Win2k progress bar get across to the end a blue screen appears. Due to the detiorated video image I canot read the error code. If I boot pressing F8, F8 the sys boots in safemode and I can access programs, control panel etc, but again I cannot determine anything due to image problem. There has been no hardware or software changes in the recent past and the system is not connected to the internet, the system may have been in sleep mode for a couple of week before the attempted reboot.
I'd appreciate and assistance
You could try uninstalling the Display Adapter driver from Device Manager while in Safe mode then see if you can reboot normally. The drivers may reinstall automatically and it might blue screen again. If prompted to install drivers when restarting you could cancel and attempt to find better drivers, but it may be a failing video adapter.
