Re: Black and White lines when I startup.

It only occurs form a cold reboot, I think it may have been a problem with the computer frist day(March 2002), as when I turned it on for the frist time, it went like this, but then it ran grand after this, until around 2 weeks ago, the only new piece of hardware I have, is an external USB Hard Drive.

I did re-install Windows XP, and used all the original drivers from dell to see if this was an issue but this did not solve anything. The problem occurs even before the OS is loaded.

There is one item that may be an issue I dont know, and that is that I put my system into standby mode, and it did not wake up from this so I had to power off, and this problem seems to have gotten worse since.
