Returned to the computer only to find it frozen on a picture out my photo alblum. No cursor to move around no response of any kind.
1: Turned the computer off and waited a few minutes
2: Started the computer back up, only to find that the background was in little round looking dot pixles. The Dell symbol was there and the bar under it was loading slowly. Once this task completed it's self the screen went to a bright orange, green, blue, white, then back to the start again of the first colour.
3: Turned the computer off again and started it back up again only to have this happen again and again.
4: rebooted the computer
5: Unplugged the power source removed battery.
6: works in the safe mode of operation
1: What's happening?
2: Would it be the video card?
3: How does one test a card to see if that's the problem?
