Garbage video on display on boot up

When I power on the laptop the video display is garbage and the BIOS texts are barely readable. Seems like the CPU and memory is working as it accepts input from the K/B. Booting into Windows results in a black screen.Changed memory DIMMs with same result. Removed hard drive and tried booting from USB... same problem. Connected external display and the same video garbage shows up on external display.

Sounds like your notebook video card is bad. It drives both the LCD panel and external displays. You'll need to replace it.

If it is still under warranty call dell asap. Normally that is the LCD going bad or the video card, which is built in on the motherboard. Usually there is nothing a home user can do with this problem. LCD's are not too hard to change but the Motherboards can be a real bear.

My Sony Vaio PCG-FR285M just shows a black screen at bootime


If your BIOS loads properly you have some display in your screen like text. But when you turn on and nothing readable on the display then you have problem in the BIOS. Try to flush updated bios in sony website. Recovery disk is only applicable if the system will display "Cannot find boot disk" or bios is properly loaded before you can boot from CD. If you wish you can boot it with Norton Ghost 12 Recovery Disk.

When I turn on my pc, it boots showing only garbage on the screen.


hi
After booting, the Operating system will only have Recylebin(garbage) as default icon. we need to put the other icons like my computer, my documents, mynetwork and others to desktop. you can do this by following steps.

Go to Run type "desk.cpl". Now you will get Display property window, there click on "Desktop " icon. After doing that you can see a "Customize desktop" button there. click on it. now you would able to see "My documents, My computer, my Network Places, Internet Explorer" beside all this icon will be able to see small square box. you need to click on the boxes. By clicking those boxes, you would get them on your desktop.
