I have a 5620D Alienware 51-m laptop. Oh yes it's true, and the attached screenshots is what has become of it.
I tried a lot of things at first, and recently I formatted my hard drive and reinstalled windows. The "messed up squares" look appears even before POST, during POST, during the Windows XP logo while the computer is starting. When I attach a monitor to it, the monitor shows the same "too hip to be square" look.
My video driver is up to date, no problem!
What are my options?
Any insight/help/comments will be very much appreciated.
Edit: Does it mean anything that when I take a "printscrn" and paste it into Paint, the malicious display squares show up?
