Dell Dimension e520 Graphics issues
Posted 14 August 2011 - 12:15 PM
My 5 year old dell dimension e520 is having some graphics issues. The machine turns on and comes up with the BIOS screen
However the screen is full of lines which are not supposed to be there. It then carries onto the next screen which appears as normal
And then boots windows as normal (no graphics issues here just a bad camera!)
However instead of coming up with the login screen it comes up with this screen
And then restarts. However it is fine in safe mode.
On booting into diagnostics it shows the same issue as in the BIOS.
And when I run the graphics test it shows this error
I have a feeling that the graphics card is a geforce 7300le, and the DVI out is not working, only vga.

Can be done by clicking run and typing DXDIAG and press enter. Click save all information on the bottom of the window that pops up. Save it to your desktop and post the contents here for me.

Your last image even says it.
Since it is a dell you can also hit F12 when you power it on and choose run diagnostics.
However the fact that it is showing in the first screen shot you posted where it shows Dell means it is a hardware problem. There are no drivers loaded there.
