Fun with Dell Laptop WiDI
I was messing around with the WiDi driver to stream the Grateful Dead show tonite and disabled the Intel Video driver. At this point, the machine started up, did POST, did the swirly page and then a blue dim (not BSOD) screen came up and nothing. HD activity, not much else.
After messing around, I was able to see
||Video memory – Video memory integrity test discrepancy
||ePSA diagnostics detected a video memory failure. Please reset the system memory and update the BIOS to most current version/
- Update to the latest BIOS.
- Reseat the system memory
- Turn off your computer and reconnect your LCD cable.
- Repeat the ePSA diagnostics..
- If failure continues contact Technical Support
Reset the boot mode to UEFI or windows would not boot.
It came up with the same blue screen. I started whomping on the LCD/CRT key, thinking I had put the video to external CRT, and I got the login screen. Whew.
Now I need to turn on the safe mode boot option before I try again…
Now why didn’t I want a MacBook???
