Why I do that is it gets me a view of the video card output without any operating system. If the video is blurry red in the BIOS setup screen on mulitple monitors the card is defective or the cable from card to display.
Got a new computer Dell 530 2.6ghz 2GB memory 2coreduo
Instead of just seeing black type on my monitor, alot of the words have red next to them, for example the m in the word example had a red blur around it. If I tilt the monitor forward I cant see it but if i tilt it I can see it
Just tried my old monitor and it is the same on there, someone told me it is my graphics card but have only had it 3 days. is this normal?
It was the last computer they had out so they had to restore it factory settings and had to wait a day for them to do that as it was the one people look at when they go in.
Is there anything I can do? I assume it is not normal to see red.
The guy at PC world told me to check notepad and try that
so I did and I can still see the red. its not huge but should it be like this?
