I have a serious problem and heres my story:
Between Jun 10.- Jun. 17, 2010 my computer went through some serious damage beginning with minor audio problems to just flat out crashing; first while on Youtube watching a Pierre Garcon highlight video; my computer freezed up on me causing me to restart, after I did so; I noticed that I didn't have any sound at all, I thought maybe because of the audio drive, a few days later (Jun 13.) after turning on my computer. My taskbar and desktop icons both disappeared and I couldn't do anything to bring them back up. I was so frustrated I nearly cried because of boredom, soon while my computer was trying to boot I noticed weird color patterns (everything had a pinkish tone to it and what supposed to be green is black). Finally my hard drive will no longer boot, is gets to the DELL.com screen where the bar fills up white (dark pink in my case)and stops right before it completes the bar and continues to click endlessly unless I turn it off.
Now I have replaced my old hard drive (Western Digital 40GB Model: 75FJA1) with a used Maxtor 40GB Model:D740X-6L that had XP installed already from eBay, now only a few problems exist:
1. The Color pattern has everything with a dark pink tone still.
2. Everything on my screen seems to be magnified and i don't know how to change.
3. Im still without any form of audio.
4. Since installing the hard drive I have trouble accessing the Internet beacuse of hardware issues.
PLEASE CAN SOMEONE OUT THERE HELP ME TROUBLESHOOT THESE PROBLEMS.
