    Folks, my older Dell Inspiron 9200 laptop started to show the following upon bootup.
    Is it the ram or the video card that has caused this? Is there a way I can determine exactly what the problem is so I can get the right part first?
    Thanks!

    Let me add that there has been no upgrades done and until today the notebook has worked perfectly.
    Also, I just connected it to an external CRT and it too showed the same messed up graphics. Motherboard maybe?

    My guess is that it is the video card. I can't be the only person to have experienced this right? Anyone want to shed some light on this for me?
    Thanks.
