Things i had done to fix the problem were (all with messed up colors for backgrounds)
system tests on hard drive, memory ect ect, none yeilded any results.
I tried system restor and that did not work either.
After testing my harddrive in antoher coputer and that computer's in mine, neither worked!
I then decided it was a driver/video card issue so i hit the "restore to factory specs" option and wiped out my harddrive to only have what it had on it on day one. the colors were still bad and i did not even get to windows loading (wtihout the logo). it was just green line columns.
I unhooked my harddrive, put it in a differnt slot or whatever (apparntly ihave 4) and the color was fixed after it told me that things were moved around. However, i still make no progress on loading windowns, instead of just green columbs i get a black screen.
Basicly the commands i can do are F2 and F12 while the Dell logo and BIOS is running. I tried F8 cuz i thought that was safe mode but that only makes my computer beep at me.
Any help will be great thanks
