no boot up

  zebbydog 12:50 11 Jan 2004

When i boot up all i get is coloured lines running down the screen and i cannot do anything.
I cannot go in to bios and it will not read from win xp disc.

Would you think the grathics card is gone or is there anything else that would cause this, any help please. The pc is only 6 weeks old, the offer from aldi (MD 8080XL) graphics card is ATi radeon 9800xl

Take the computer back under Guarantee. do not mess with it, it will nullify the above Guarantee

I had another 512 mb put in it just after i bought it, it says in the Guarantee part this is ok as long as a qualified person does this.

I will contact medion on monday but i was just asking incase it was something simple to save sending it back. Thanks for your reply will let you no how i get on in new post Zebby
