Sorry for not being clear, I blame work for
Anyway i transfered the TV card out of the computer
with the funny bios startup. So the TV card wont be
causing the problem.
The computer is a celeron400, the motherboard has the
810 intel graphics and an award bios..
Could dust be causing it <its 2 years old>? It just
seems to be a corruption of the video display, if i
boot to dos I can and i type the corruption is the
same. And it is consistant. Can i replace the bios
Thx for the response.. So as not to bog down the list,
maybe you should reply to me personnally..
