Yeah, it should be working. It may be a corrupted graphics chip, but I don't really know. This may not help at all, but clearing the CMOS may
resolve it. I don't see why it really would, but sometimes clearing it works miracles.
I haven't ever had to resort to it, but I believe the process goes something like this: (someone please correct me if I'm mistaken)
To clear the CMOS, find the CMOS jumper on your motherboard if you have the manual. Power off the machine, unplug the power cord, and open up the case. Remove the battery from the motherboard and move the jumper from pins 1 & 2 to pins 2 & 3. Leave it there for about 1 minute. In most cases, it only needs to be there for ~10 seconds, but to be on the safe side: a full minute. Then, move it back and reinsert the battery. Close the case, connect the power cord back, and power on.
After doing that (if you choose to do so) let us know if the problem still persists.
