Hey and thanks for reading this post,

Yesterday I was playing a video game when My computer froze completly.
Ever since a computer crash, my computer starts up with pink lines horizontally when microsoft windows loads and is only displaying 16 colours. When trying to change the display settings, all the video card information is not being displayed.

I suspect is a video card hardware malfunction but I could be wrong.

When The computer starts, I get a message saying "Windows has not loaded properly perviously" and gives me the option to run the Windows Startup Repair. After running the Windows Startup Repair, it fails to fix the problem and I get the message below:


Problem Event Name: StartupRepairOffline,
Problem Singature 01:6.1.7600.16385
Problem Singature 02: 6.1.7600.16385
Problem Singature 03: unknown
Problem Singature 04: 336
Problem Singature 05: AutoFailover
Problem Singature 06:1
Problem Singature 07:NoRoot Cause
OS Version: 6.1.7600.2.0.0.256.1

below is a picture of what the screen looks like during windows startup repair.



Note: Windows Indicates that the problem may be due to a new device installed in the computer however I have recently not placed any new device into it.

any advice would be great. Thank you very much.

Hello firestone22 and Welcome to TSG!

Boot into Safe Mode,(Tap F8 on bootup) and uninstall the video drivers, then restart the system. Windows should then install the default drivers for the card. After doing this do you still have the same issue?

Thank you for your response!

I did what you said, I uninstalled the Nvidia driver, and then let Windows automatically install it in safe mode. This Did not solve the problem. Any other suggestions?

My Computer is a Intel Core 2 quad CPU Q6600 @ 2.40gh (4 CPU)
4 gb ddr 2 ram

Let me know if you need more information

The lines appear post boot up however, in the pre boot up there are still some horrizontal lines but they are not dots but rather show up like this --> [ [ [ [ [ [ [

Below is a link to the image of what it looks like.

Open a run command (Windows Key + R) type dxdiag and click OK. In the box that appears there will be a green progress bar on the bottom left. Let it finish and then go through the tabs and check for errors. If there are some errors, copy and past them in your next post.

Well for display there are no problems found and your Current Mode: 640 x 480 (4 bit) (1Hz). Lets update your drivers Geforce Driver update Click Auto Detect Your GPU.

Sound Tab 1: This computer cannot play audio because the Windows Audio service is not enabled. Use the Sounds and Devices Properties control panel to enable audio. No sound card was found. If one is expected, you should install a sound driver provided by the hardware manufacturer.
Are you having sound issues as well?
