1) a couple 1x1" squares were off color
2) Computer crash, Blue screen message: (paraphrased obviously)
" Prob w/ nv4_disp
If this is first time, restart. If it happens again, yer in an infinite loop,
so, check w/ hardware mancft and drivers. "
Same thing happens second time. I restarted in safe mode, couldn't fix it. I have pictures of both Blue screens when it crashed.
Next restart, screen was very scrambled, tried a few more restarts in safe mode, not possible to do anything due to screen. Now, I get one short been just after turning on, and nothing on screen. So, I can't figure out how to do anything with computer as it is.
Comp is Dell Vostro 400 OS: WIndows XP
I use avast-free and run scans at least weekly w/ Mbam, SASpyware, and the Avast scanner. I did all three in between the crashes, and I don't think there were any suspicious items found.
THANKS in advance!
