    I've been trying for a good while now to get my video card working again, but nothing seems to work. I've installed all the drivers, removed them all, and reinstalled them, and nothing seems to be changing anything.

    What happens is everything is working fine, I see the boot info, then I see the Windows XP loading screen with the blue blocks going across the screen. After that, the screen goes blank for a second and then it comes up with a black screen (not off, just blank) with two dots in the top left hand corner, both are two pixels long and are red and yellow, and spaced apart. I'm not sure what the problem is because everything works in safe mode. I'm making this thread in safe mode with networking as a matter of fact. The computer itself is still functioning, if I press enter I hear it logging into whatever account I clicked on. So please, any help would be great.

    System Specifications
    CPU: 2.8 GHz Multicore Processor (crossthreaded)
    GPU: ATi Radeon 9250
    RAM: 1 GB
    OS: Windows XP Home SP2

    As it turns out, I had to go to my device manager and disable the drivers for my integrated chip. After that everything was back to normal.

    Thanks. That's good info. Normally, I'd disable an integrated video card in bios.
