  • Sounds like a driver issue. Was 7 on there originally or XP.

    Try booting back to safemode see if you can remove any display adapter drivers in device manager.

    Also if you can get an external CD drive create a Bart rescue Cd see if video work fine. If so then definately a driver/software problem.

    Also if that model has built in diagnostics at boot up run the dislpay test to check it.
