Question about Dell Dimension 4600 PC Desktop
Immediately upon boot vertical lines appear on my monitor screen. After serveral minutes the screen becomes pink. and the windowws cursor appears. thats as far as the computer goes. I attempted to use the recovery disk supplied with the computer, but had no result.
Most likely an issue with the Video Card or Video driver.
* Boot to safe mode by tapping F8 while starting up the computer. Selected safe mode with the keyboard and hit enter. Login to your user account. You should see the words “Safe Mode” on all four corners,
* Open device manager – Right click “My Computer” – Select “Manage” – Selected device manager from the left. Under display driver, you should see your vide card listed. Right click on it and select “Disable”.
Now restart your computer and if this resolves the issue, then the vide card may be at fault. You could also try updating the video driver.
Do let me know if you get this far.
