Emachines t5274 vertical blue lines during startup/XP.


It looks like you've got two issues. If you tried a different monitor and it too have vertical blue lines your video card might be bad, but hold that thought. I'm thinking you need to reload the operating system because you can't boot all the way up which is the second issue.

Have you tried to boot up in Safe Mode and do a System Restore? Turn the computer off, then turn it back on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFE MODE. Select the Safe Mode option. When it boots, if it boots successfully things will look different in Safe Mode. The screen will be darker and icons bigger, but that's normal. If you get into the desktop successfully, click Start/Programs/Accessories/System Tools/System Restore. Select a restore point (date and time) that is before you started having problems. If the system tells you that you have no restore points, then you will have to either Reload the Operating System or do a System Recovery. By the way, System Restore does not lose your data, documents, music, pictures, videos, or programs unless the program was installed after the restore date. System Recovery LOSES EVERYTHING, it sets your system back to when you first purchased it.

go into your bios and make sure that video memory shadowing is dissabled, Sounds like a faulty video card or damaged signal cable. I would lean more to the faulty card though, try installing a new one as I would say thats your issue if your getting artifacts on the screen before the OS has fully loaded.

OFC you could try new drivers both for your chipset of *********** board and the graphics card in the interim.

At boot up, press F8 and from the screen that opens, select 'Last Good Boot" or some such thing and let the computer boot. If it does not work then select Safe Boot after F8 and then go to Start->All Progs->Accessories->Sys Tools->Restore. Restore the system to an earlier date.

Grid surrounding cursor and desktop icons


You have accidentally enabled "Universal Access"
Open System Preferences from either the dock or the pull down menu under the Apple in the upper left hand corner of your screen.

In System Preferences the 4th line down should have icons for "System" one of those icons (usually the right most) will be a blue circle with a person in it. This is "Universal Access"

Open Universal access and turn voice over and zoom off.
