  1. It started with that my screen looked all messed up. I have a dell so when I restart the dell logo have white lines all over the screen.
    problem is when i try to install the driver, my computer crashes halfway thru the installation and then I get a blue screen 'PAGE_FAULT_IN_NONPAGED_AREA'

    When I format my computer weird letters and symbols shows up
    example:

    Window XP Professional Setup
    ø____øøøø____øøøø__ø__ø_ (suppose to be straight lines)

    PresS enteR to contiNuE

    and also there is like blue/red/green lines pops up on my screen
    i have to change my color quality to 16 bit cause it gets nasty at 32bit

    Pc spec
    Dell Dimension E521
    Window media center editon SP2 (But it says I have window xp pro for some reason)
    Processor: AMD Athlon 64 processor 3200+ 2.0ghz
    Video card: Geforce 7300 LE
    Ram: 4g

    Can anyone help? This is very frustrating!
    Thanks

    I had a problem with this, and my video card was messed up from the manufacturer. Have you tried it in a friends computer, or another of your own? This is how I found out it was my card that was wrong and not anything else.
    First I would just do some basic troubleshooting like checking all connections, taking the card out of the system and re-seating, and perhaps blowing some air in there to get any dust out.
