I'm helping a friend of mine get his new homebuilt computer ready to use! We managed to successfully install Windows Vista Home Basic, and upon doing this, it successfully loaded!
However, about a minute or two later, the screen turned into a mess of thick, diagonal lines. It was like one huge psychedelic background with no GUI whatsoever.
So, we try CTRL+ALT+DELETE, and as I expected, nothing.
We thought it might just be since it was the PC's first time, so we manually rebooted it with the power button. This time, it locked up and CTRL+ALT+DELETE would not work, yet again.
The third time, the diagonal line problem occurred again.
He installed 512 MB of RAM into the PC, but it only recognizes 448 MB.
He has an integrated nVidia 6100 video card.
Any help would be appreciated!
