I have a Dell 4550 desktop(P4 2.88ghz 768mb) that has worked fine for the past year..last nite the computer locked up and when i rebooted the sreen blacked out after the windows xp screen..a similar thing happens when i attempt to boot up in safe mode..the computer gets stuck after the command line with the text "AGP/440"..im wondering if my graphics card went bad or the driver is corrupted and can i retore this with the XP cd...Thanks in advance!
