Question about Televison & Video
First time post. I have windows xp, and not really experienced in computers <_<
The computer is having trouble booting up at the start, symptoms include red dotted lines, and blue streaks across the screen vertically. When i get to the Windows logo picture where it loads. it starts freezing and then the screen goes blank suddenly turning the monitor off, yet the computer is still on. I'm able to run the computer through safe mode, but that's as far as i can get. Could this be a graphics card problem? Please help!!!!! -_-
Yes. You have a very sick VGA card in your computer. Get it replaced. The reason it runs okay in safe mode is because full potent driver and graphics don't load in safe mode to aggravate the card's illness. When the driver fully loads in normal mode, the card freaks out.

Tips for a great answer:
Tip: If you are running Safe Mode because you cannot get into Windows, you may want to first try loading the last known good configuration.
To get into the Windows 2000 and XP Safe mode, as the computer is booting press and hold your "F8 Key" which should bring up the "Windows Advanced Options Menu" as shown below. Use yourarrow keys to move to "Safe Mode" and press your Enter key.
Note: With some computers, if you press and hold a key as the computer is booting you will get a stuck key message. If this occurs, instead of pressing and holding the "F8 key", tap the "F8 key" continuously until you get the startup menu.
Trouble Getting into Windows 2000 or Windows XP Safe mode- If after several attempts you are unable to get into Windows 2000 or Windows XP Safe Mode as the computer is booting into Windows, turn off your computer. When the computer is turned on the next time Windows should notice that the computer did not successfully boot and give you the Safe Mode screen
