Having problems with your Dell Dimension 9150 (DIM915MIN) PC Desktop ?

Black screen and numbers 2 and 4 lit

\015 When I start up my computer, it shows that windows is supposed to star and then the screen goes black, and on the lEDS on the pc the numbers 2 and 4 stay permanently lit. Nothing happens. What can the problem be and how can iy be fixed?\015

Answers :

The 2 and 4 LED error code indicatesVideo subsystem configuration or failure”. You either have a bad video circuit or your video drivers have a problem. Try booting into “safe mode” by tapping the F8 key when powering on the computer. If the computer comes up in safe mode then your video drivers may have to be reloaded.
