PC will not fully boot to normal desktop
Good day everyone,
I need help to resolve that my PC will not boot to a normal desktop view.
On power up (HD boot), monitor displays no keyboard (wireless keyboard) message, though striking F1 continues boot process.
Monitor displays normal Windows XP start up screen and shows the bar graph incrementing showing OS loading - start up.
After that, the monitor displays only the cursor / hour glass with a background of vertical white bands on the left and right sides with a centered green / black band (bands are approximately 1/3 width), no icons displayed, screen blinks in and out (bands to black slowly).
Tried booting from the Windows OS CD (HD and floppy boot disabled thru system configuration, F2) same color bands are displayed, no icons displayed, screen blinks in and out (bands to black slowly).
System spec's overview.
PC - Dell Dimensions 8200.
OS – Windows XP Home Edition.
Ram – 512 mb.
HD – 30 gig.
Additional spec’s not available.
