Ok well hello all
Here is my problem.
3 days ago i was playing Guild wars when the screen went black and i restarted. But when i restarted there were red lines on the dell screen and green lines on the windows load screen. Just before it goes to the User selection screen it goes back to a black screen and my monitor goes into standby mode. Again...
Now i reformated my hard drive, and reinstalled windows. Now i can get into windows but the red lines on teh dell screen and the green lines on the windows load screen are still there. But i can get into windows. So i was trying to update my video drivers and then halfway through installation the scren goes black with a bunch of different color boxes. So i tried installing in safe mode. It installed ok, but when i restarted my comp the computer did the same thing, red lines, green lines, and then the black screen where the windows user select should be. Monitor to standby etc... so i restarted with most recent settings that worked. Now i just cant install my drivers.
Now other things that i have found said that it is my vid card. I think so too. But just want to make sure. I dont have another vid card to replace it with to double check...
My pc specs are as follows
Pentium 4 3.2Ghz
Windows XP Media Center 2002 Service pack 2
2Gb of RAM
NVidia Geforce 6800
umm idk what else to put...
THanks for any help!
