Default Red Green Blue screen

ok my mums laptop has suddenly stopped booting to windows. it will get to the windows loading screen but will stay on this screen for a long time and then after that will go into a cycle of;

Red>Green>Blue>White>Black

and just constantly repeat this cycle.

the laptop is a Dell inspiron 5160

if anyone could give me any information as to whats going on with this that'd be amazing

thanks for your time.

Default Re: Red Green Blue screen

I am guessing Vista? Have you tried to use the Recovery Partition and boot to it and use a Restore point?

Hit F11 or F12 at boot to get there.
