chrismacf Posted January 14, 2008 Report Share Posted January 14, 2008 So basically, I was playing gta san andreas on my laptop when it froze suddenly. I restarted the computer and now it has red lines running across the screen. http://img99.imageshack.us/my.php?image=130120081804gb9.jpg After it reaches the boot screen some yellow lines appear on the screen. http://img99.imageshack.us/my.php?image=130120081806mz8.jpg Then the screen switches off completely but windows still loads up ok while the screen is off. I can't get anywhere past the boot screen so I tried reinstalling windows which worked but I was left with the same red lines across the screen I had before and there were now small blue lines on the wallpaper once windows loaded up. When I tried to install the video driver after i'd installed windows again (I tried it with the dell driver from their website and modded driver 84.25 from laptopvideo2go) it would install ok but the next time I reboot I see those yellow lines again for a second and the screen switches off completely. At the moment I've got windows installed on two separate partitions, one which works fine without any video driver installed but I can't play games, just use the net & play music etc. The other I made to try different drivers & figuree out the problem but those yellow lines come up each time & I end up reinstalling windows again but now I have no idea what to do next, can someone help?? My laptop is a Dell xps m170 2.13GHz pentium 4 Geforce 6800 Go Ultra graphics card And I'm running xp home edition. Hope that makes some sence, thanks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
