I have a problem with my computer's display. If I let the computer start up normally the display is fuzzy, full of horizontal lines and I am unable to make out anything on the screen. When I use safe mode the display is fine like nothing is wrong.
I'm running Vista Home Premium SP 2 on a dell studio 540. I'm using an hdtv as my monitor. It is attached to the hdmi port on my computer. I don't have another monitor that I can use.
This is what I was doing immediately before the problem started. I was running a live boot of Kali-Linux 1.06 but the display was cut off I couldn't see the full desktop. I was unable to shut down the computer because I couldn't see the shut down menu. I pressed the power button on the front of the computer to turn it off. When I turned the computer back on the BIOS screen appeared as usual but then the screen went blank and stayed blank. So I tried rebooting the computer a few times and a few hours later the screen started showing the fuzzy horizontal lines that I see now.
I did a system restore to the day before I ran Kali- Linux but it didn't do anything.
I reset the bios settings to factory default because I read that it might help but it didn't make a difference.
Thanks in advance
