It could be that the display card has to be reseated. If you know how, try to reseat the display card . Also make sure that all cables to and from the computer and monitor are securely placed. If that does not work, it could be that your display card is kaput and needs replacement..

Dx2200 stops booting up. then shows a purple and yellow dotted screen !!! why ?


If your screen shows a clear picture to start with then it is most likely the video card driver. I don't know what you mean by no access to safe mode, but if you can get into safe mode you should be able to uninstall the video driver and restart. Safe mode is usually accessed by hitting F8 before windows starts so as soon as you see a picture on the screen start hitting F8 a few times until you get to the safe mode selection menu.

Click Window Color and Appearance. Under Window Color and Appearance, click the color you want, and then click OK. Note If you see the Appearance Settings dialog box instead of the Window Color and Appearance window, the theme might not be set to Windows Vista, the color scheme might not be set to Windows Aero, or the computer might not meet the minimum hardware requirements for running Windows Aero. For more information, see Troubleshoot problems with Windows Aero.

Red blue and green patterning on the monitor


You can try switching out the VGA cable (the one with the blue connectors on each end). If this does not work, try a factory reset on your monitor.

Unplug the Power Cord from the PC, then press and hold the [power] button for 5-seconds.

Re-connect the Power cord and try it again.

If that fails, then you will need to try a local tech for diagnostic tests.
It is failing during the loading of Drivers....and the screen is red, so make sure that the Video cable is secure at both ends.

Are you sure that F8 during boot is not working ? This takes you to the Advanced Boot Options Menu....and you can try to boot in Safe Mode or Safe Mode with Networking....or Last Known Good Configuration.

Hi there,

The first portion of your description of symptoms would usually lead to the conclusion that your hard drive is about shot, but the rows of dots at the Recovery attempt point sqarely to your video card about to fail completely.

It could actually be both problems if your hard drive is 3 or more years old or has been run heavily and continuously for gaming or other intensive apps.

That's about all I think most of us here could tell you from a distance.

Best Regards,

Marcus
