im looking at my daughters pc the problem is when booting up,during the process of loading the screen has vertical lines about an inch wide spread evenly every couple of inches,then the screen goes black before launching windows. I can get into safe mode,and have tried a system restore which returned the pc to an earlier time pre the current problem,but still getting the same issue. any ideas?
i think it could be driver corruption,she installed a usb tv device plus deleted an old analogue card medion7134?,then uninstalled the usb tv device. its a medion pc about 4 years old ,intel pentium 4,graphics mx440? xp service pack 2 fully up to date
its like its running but the graphics/monitor isnt kicking in? if that makes sense
It may not be the same thing, but I had this once and it turned out that both my TV tuner card and memory modules needed re-seating. Incorrect seating was causing memory corruption on the video somehow; I`m not techie enough to be more precise.
thanks for help I had to uninstall the card in safemode,however this alone with new driver didnt work. I reinstalled the 7134 tuner driver to the medion folder,re installed the graphics driver and everything back to normal kids eh! thanks again
