Okay heres the latest.
Ive now tried all the new and old drivers, chipsets, system bios, video bios, settings , another monitor, reformat, drivers ousted in safe mode, pre boot analysis, video card checks, video connection checks and like 4 hours of diagnostics with dell with 2 different techies.....whew.
The result is now I have to send my machine to them which really sucks since I move to Australia in 4 days and will have to deal with service there.
Im going to see if I can update my warranty to a better one (not sure if Im allowed)
So that someone can come out to do the job. Plus the extra accidental coverage would be nice since I will be in new zealand for a while too.
thanks for everyones help here and if anyone has any other ideas Im willing to try if it will save me from getting a new video card.
Now I need to post a question about adding blue tooth (why didnt I order it when they built my machine?!!!! (slams head on keyboard) fjhsfhsklsvlslS
