Hello all,
For some time now I have been having the same problem across multiple pcs,even macs.Its a little glitch,like a brief flash that occurs during boot and sometimes other intervals.I set up a Dell the other day and I got a non bootable disk error.So I chose "F5",onboard diagnostics.I got this message."fail psa v4220 error 2000:0332 video memory video memory integrity test discrepancy".Now I have a FAT problem as files report different sizes.I've tried multiple AV products and no luck.It seems this thing loads itself before the scan and circumvents it.Any suggestions?TIA.
Its not a virusproblem. You have to update your BIOS. (firmware update)
But you have to be sure you download the exact firmware for your pc.
If you dont know what i am talking about, you need the help of someone that does know.
Dont try it if you dont know. If you do wrong thing it could disable/break your computer.

I have already done that.Its a 7010 Optiplex.First to version 23,then to version 25.And I was A+ certified previously.
OK, version 25 is latest version.
To prevent loading before virusscan use a bootable virusscan.
So you start computer from a DVD or usbstick.
For example the Kaspersky Rescue Disk.

To rule out that it is a hardware-problem you could try running a Linux distrubition from bootable USB or DVD.
For example Ubuntu : https://tutorials.ubuntu.com/tutorial/tu...-windows#0

No problems running Ubuntu, then there is a problem with your Windows installation. Reinstall Windows.
Also problem with Ubuntu, some kind of hardware problem.
