Having problems with your Dell Inspiron 530s Desktop Computer ?

I have yellow vertical lines on my screen and when I try to update my video drivers the computer shuts off?


Answers :

Could be a bad video card. you could try resetting to default vga mode in windows.
just before booting into windows press F8 a couple times to go into safe mode.
when the safe mode list comes up, select VGA mode.
if you still have the lines, it probably a bad card or bad chip if it's built in.
you could add a new graphics card.

I am trying to burn a DVD that is 1 hour and 49 minutes long and it will not burn correctly. On a DVD-RW it only recorded just a small amount at the beginning and also had music in the background. I tried a DVD-R and it would not work at all. It also seems that the video file is larger than what the DVD can hold but I am using 4.7GB (2hours).
