I need some advise/opinions.
I have a dell inspiron 6000 (XP), recently thin pink lines began to appear through all graphics. From what I have tested/checked I believe that I need a new video card, but I was wondering if there are any other options. Below are some important points to note.
1-I have used an external monitor....pink lines remain.
2-Laptop can run WITH NO PINK LINES in 32bit. 16 Bit has pinks lines.
3-Laptop can run resolution 1024x768 and lower with no pink lines.
4-There seem to be known "Pink line" problems with this and other dell laptops, but I do not think that the matters are related based on what I have tested. [post="Dell Blog"]http://direct2dell.com/one2one/archive/2007/06/19/17774.aspx
5-Pink lines appear through every graphic.....even the DELL logo when the system starts up, before the software is loaded.
Any other ideas besides the vid card?
And any suggestions for a new vid card.......the one that is in there now has worked fine for what I do, but I would have to order it from the dell website and I don't want to wait that long. Right now it's an ATI 64 bit.
Thanks for any help-Mukluk
