I have a Dell Dimension E510 with Windows XP that has a video problem. After start up the video is fine, but after opening other windows it starts to develop rectangle blocks of video radomly on the screen. In the device manager there are 2 video display drivers, even though there is only intergrated video in the box. When I uninstall one of the drivers and reboot, the computer finds new hardware and wants to reinstall the driver. I checked the CMOS settigs and the video was set for auto detect. I set it for integrated video only and no change. I then uninstalled both drivers and reinstalled a new driver from Dell and still the same problem. My next thought is to try a video card unless someone has a better idea. Thanks

Did you rule out the monitor by checking on another PC? Have you tried safemode if pixelated is also present? I see that on BIOS that it has Video memory size settings and default.

To be honest, I did not rule out the monitor. I guess I just didn't consider it, but I will now. I did try safe mode and even tried changing the memory setting in teh CMOS as well.

I believe that model supports two displays.

I personally would try a video card.

Today I downsized the resolution and that seemed to fix the problem. I still thing I need a video card but this might be a good temp fix.
