Default Screen issues?

Our computer is doing this:

Is this the video card going bad? It boots and works for while then does this. It is a Dell Latitude D630 laptop with Windows XP.

Default Re: Screen issues?

Try updating your graphics card drivers from the GPU manufacturer's site rather than Dell's site.

You can see what card you have by going to Device Manger > Display Adapters. It should tell you what brand/model you have.
Laptop: MSI GT70 2OC-059us | i7-4700MQ | 16GB | GTX 770m | 500GB SSD / 750GB HDD | 17.3" | Win10 Pro
Desktop: 4690k | 12GB g.Skill RipJaws | GTX 970 | 520hx | Z87X-UD4H | Corsair Vengeance C70 | Corsair H110 | Acer 25" | Acer 22" | Win10
Mobile: Samsung Galaxy Note 5
