I was checking mail yesterday and the screen went off then attempted to restart.It was full of coloured squares and rectangles, it then changed to green lines/spots. A blue screen appeared during all this and it offered to try and repair itself which at the end it said it could not. I tried it with another monitor and its just the same, unusable.Anyone any ideas please? Dell dimension 9200
Thanks for that mate i went into safe mode the screen is now blue with lots of dots all over it. You can still sign in which i have done now its all the green dots all over the show. It looks like graphic card like you said, drivers upto date. Graphic card about 4 years old as is computer. Is it just a matter of putting new card in and it would work?
Hi again guys,, put card back in and went into bios could not see the VGA mode. Every time computer starts it says there is a problem and windows will try and fix. Then it says do you want to restore and then says it cannot fix. Dont know how to connect monitor without using graphics card.
