When I open up in regular mode, as it is setting up I get hundreds of small lines across the monitor. They are thin lines like on notebook paper but very close together. Then within a few minn. the computer restarts. My operating system is windows vista.
When I restart it in safe mode I don't get the lines and it works fine except for the programs that don't start up like sound and some of the programs I try to use.
Has anyone here had this problem and found the fix?

reinstall the video drivers


in the device manager uninstall the video card
reboot tapping f8 and choose low resolution mode
when windows finishes rebooting
disable a/virus
install your drivers
reboot the computer

if this does not fix then it is likely the power supply is no longer supplying sufficient power

what power supply

make
model
wattage

does the bios list the voltages dell usually does not
