Display problem

  heepster 07:58 19 Nov 06

I have a Dell dimension 5100 1 gig ram Pent 4 chip Radeon X600 256meg card. On startup I get two vertical red lines down the centre of my flat screen panel and then it starts in what looks like 16 colours. Have checked the settings in display and I should be at max resolution. Its worked perfectly for 2 years. So I suspect the graphics card or monitor. Any suggestions?

swap them with another machine to confirm diagnosis...?

I'd say it's the graphics card as your describing a problem I had, or rather a family member had, that I fixed.

Check all leads are secured and the card is properly seated inside the tower.

Hi, a friend had a similar problem,I'm afraid with his monitor, it was goosed.Fortunately he had had it less than a year so it was replaced.
