Question about Graphics Cards
Please help resolve the following error message: -
Extended Test - Service Tag FBDZ2BX
Error Code 5300:0119
Msg. Detected a failure which writing and reading video memory. Video Mode 4h(320x2004) ADDRESS B8044h, expected to read FFFFFFFFh bu read FFFFFFEFh instead, The given error code and message can be used by Dell Tech Support to help diagnose the problem.
I thought the problem may have been caused by an application i recently downloaded, Freevideo converter YouTube to Ipod that i have since removed.
Dell Hong Kong unwilling to help because warranty expired and without $$$ up front. Laptop is just 22 months old, now only runs on "safe mode". My search through internet reveals that this is one major problem with the inspiron 9400 that I am beginning to hate. Please help.

I agree sounds like bad video card. I have been told that the graphics cards are not as good as
CPU's at slowing down so they don't get hot??? Is this correct??? Additionally the filters start to get quite dirty after 12 months or so - slowing air flow. I had a similar error but with 3 year warranty Dell did replace card.

Your video card memory went bad, has to be replaced,
You have to have it serviced, you can take it to Best Buy to have it serviced if you don't want to pay the premium from the vender!
