Its been a while and I still haven't solved my problem.
I've tried calling Dell and all I get people in India who have such a strong accent the entire conversation we are just repeating over an over....
i'll go over it again.
First Screen: funny letter A's and accents all over...
Next: XP Startup...
Next: Dell boot with plaid all over the background
Next: black screen, nothing else..
Video Mode errors that come up when I do a self diagnostic.
Will boot in safe mode no problem
