Dell :: Screen Is Fuzzy, Not Clear Looking?

Jan 22, 2010

I received my new dell studio about 2 weeks ago. I love it, but i think there is a problem with my screen or graphics card. when i first started up windows i saw that the screen was fuzzy looking, (like little lines running through the screen.) and i thought it wasn't a big deal, but everyday i keep thinking about it and its getting irritating.

i have a decent graphics card a 512MB ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4570, but i don't know if i have to change around the settings to get rid of this fuzzy looking screen. i feel that it should look crystal clear looking.

also when i go to scroll down a page or move things around the fuzziness gets worse then when i stop moving the page or w.e it goes back regular fuzziness screen.

can someone help me out! I'm a newbie at computers and really want to solve this problem, is there some kind of setting i have to change?

Dell :: 14z 900p 1600x900 Is Fuzzy And Not Clear

Aug 12, 2009

I have been using my 14z for the past week. The main problem I have with it is that the 1600x900 resolution on a 14" screen is too difficult to see for me.

I have tried to change the resolution setting by choosing the defaults and by creating custom resolutions but any resolution other than 1600x900 is fuzzy and not clear.

Is there something I'm missing? Any suggestions?

Dell :: Fuzzy Screen Vostro 1500

Jan 9, 2010

My Dell is out of warranty sadly.

This has happened twice recently, I'll be using the laptop, just browsing the net, photoshop, music etc. I don't play any games so wouldn't say the gpu (if that's what the problem is) has ever been under massive load.

I try to keep an eye on the temps and have never noticed them be excessively hot at any time.

It happened again today, so I ran just about every dell diagnostic test that you can use when you first start the laptop and every test passed.

Acer Aspire V5-471 :: Screen Fuzzy After Reinstall

Oct 15, 2014

The display on my laptop was working fine. I have reinstalled windows 8 64x on my v5-471. On startup the "acer" screen and windows symbol display perfectly, but once it boots into windows, the screen looks fuzzy, with everything ghosted/ duplicated. It works fine on an external monitor. I have installed the intel drivers manually from their website and tried uninstalling them and letting windows find the new driver itself, to no avail. 
 
These are the drivers I have tried installing manually: [URL] .....
 
It is the same issue as seen in this video: [URL] .....

Dell Inspiron 15 N5040 :: Fuzzy Lines Across Screen Like Straight Sunrays At An Angle

Apr 11, 2013

I have an Inspiron 15 Intel N5040 I purchased 10 months ago.  I am noticing that on photographs (like my screensaver background) there are fuzzy lines across the screen kind of like straight sunrays at an angle.  The problem is, my prior Inspiron had the same problem after about 16 months and the end result was an unusable laptop because the screen went out completely.

HP/Compaq :: HP G62-47NR Laptop Auto-Dim Screen When Going To Desktop And Fuzzy Windows

May 3, 2010

I have just bought my G62 laptop and have pretty much no complaint except the backspace's bounce seems to be a bit off and a little loud. However, I seem to notice this weird dimming issue when I set my laptop to either Power Saver or HP Recommended mode. When I go from the internet browser to the desktop and wait like 3 seconds, the screen seem to dim just a tiny bit. Sometimes it dims twice. Most noticeable when using the lowest brightness level. It's really bothering me, does anybody know what it is? It's not the auto-dim feature, because it dims in like 3 second. It just flickers a little bit.

Also, when I move a browser or window up and down, I can see this fuzziness on the outline of the window, including the outline of the search bar. I updated the display adapters, I have Intel HD Graphics display adapters.

My specs are:

i5-430m
4GB
Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium

Dell :: Clear PROTECTION Skins

Apr 12, 2009

I was also wondering if anyone has tried any of the Clear protection skins that are available such as Invishield or Phantom Skinz since it appears that this laptop (XPS 16) is such a fingerprint magnet and now i'm seeing from earlier posts that it is prone to minor scratches. I am tough on my lappy since I carry it with me everyday so something like this might be worth it to protect my new investment..... Let me know everyones thoughts, I just ordered my XPS 16 and would like to keep it as scratch free as possible

Sony :: AWusing External Monitor Is Fuzzy

Aug 5, 2009

I am trying to use an extra monitor at work (in extended desktop mode, not clone mode) so that I can use by the laptop's display and the extra external display.

The external monitor is 24" with native resolution of 1920x1200. It works great when hooked to my desktop or other machines.

When I hook it to the laptop, it becomes fuzzy and slightly blurry. Not horribly, but enough to hurt your eyes and make you not want to use it. Anyone had this problem? I've tried several different cables to eliminate that as an issue, but like i said - it works fine when hooked to my desktop.

HP/Compaq :: Reformating My Dv5t To Clear The Bloatware

Jan 10, 2009

I've been thinking about buying the dv5t from HP for college.

people sometimes recommend to reformat the whole system in order to clear out all the junk "bloatware" that HP sticks in there.

Well anyway I was thinking of buying the DV5t with programs like; photoshop, Norton's anti-virus, and that lowjack thing for computers.

if I reformat the system to clear out the bloatware, would that get rid of those programs?
And if it doesn't does HP give me a CD inorder to reinstall them?

Dell :: Vostro Screen Wobbled/looseunable To Repair, Now Plastic Around Screen Is Loose

Nov 13, 2008

I have a Vostro 1500, which I bought 10 months ago. About 3 months ago the screen became loose and wobbled about 10 degrees when computer was moved or if I was on the train and it went over bumps. I tightened the screws as advised but this did not have any real effect. Dell engineer came and replaced the back cover with new hinges, (as they though hinges may be broken/at fault but they were fine,) but some wobble was still noticable so he ordered a new base. He came today and took the screen out complete with all the screen casing out of the old base, and put it into the new base, but still wobbled, so just put it back in the old base as it wouldn't have cured the problem.

Now yesterday, after he put the new back cover on, he had to take the plastic around the front of the screen off. After he put it together I noticed that the screen is no longer flush with the plastic surround and it annoys me! Am I just being finicky/picky or should I ask them to fix it?

Dell :: Vostro 1500 LCD Screen Replacement. New Screen Acting Weird

Jan 30, 2010

Hi all, new person here. I did a search on LCD screens but can't find my problem anywhere.

Here's the background and problem:

Vostro 1500 with Chungwha 1280x800 screen that got cracked by my kids. I ordered a replacement screen from a company off Amazon.com that was highly rated. Got the screen and installed it. It is make by Chi Mei. When I powered up the computer I got 8 screens of start up and it was very dim. Once it went past the Windows start up screen everything went black. It would only continue to Windows screen, still showing 8 windows in safe mode. I hooked up the old screen and everything worked fine.

I contacted the company and they air expressed me another screen, which I received yesterday. Hooked it up and got the exact same problem, which leads me to believe it's the Dell that doesn't like it. I will try and attach some photos because I am at a loss.

Thanks for your help in advance.

Dell :: I9300 Gfx Card Dead - Gives A Black Screen After The Xp Spalsh Screen

Feb 25, 2009

I was browsing the internet a day ago and I was on a "COLLEGE" website so i know this is not due to a virus. At this time all of a suden my screen went black.

I powered the laptop off and turned it back on, The Dell logo appeared but the screen was fuzzy and had some "tearing" i dont really know what to call it but it doesnt look right. Kind of like an old VCR playing videos. The screen then whent black after the windows xp splash screen. The laptop still boots to windows but it does not display anything.

I booted into safe mode, everything functions correctly and the way it's supposed to. I then booted into VGA mode same thing everything functions and works the way it is supposed to. I also ran some virus scans just incase, nothing was found.

Whilist in safe mode i changed the resolution down to 800 x 600 and still no luck after booting in regular mode.

In VGA mode i tryed to change resolution and the screen displayed some blue fuzzy lines then whent black.

After this I booted back into safe mode and done severeral diffrent System Restores at diffrent dates. Still no luck

After going through all this I am assuming this is a GFX card problem. The laptop is about 3 years old and ive played games pretty hard on it ever since. The card has defenitly gone through some some stress. Can anyone confirm this?

I know that the i9300 sells for about 400 working, and i checked on ebay for a card that is a whopping 180 bucks. Id just assume buy a new laptop. Then sell the i9300 laptop for parts because everything else works fine. Or maybe buy the card swich it out and sell it for a price. Maybe there is a way to fix it i dont know. can anyone help?

Lastly, i thought i would add that when i check the bios the card is recognized and it displays all the correct info for the card. IS there a way to tell for 100% that the card is bad?

Dell :: Ghosting Screen Or Lower Resulotion Screen

Sep 5, 2009

If you had the choice to choose either a Screen that has yellow ghosting, or a screen that has a lower resolution - which one would u go for?

Well I ordered a dell notebook with a 720p screen I believe that would be somewhere around 1330 x 780 - however I got a notebook with a 1600x900 screen.

The screen however has quite some yellow ghosting, which I can see for example when my charackter heals herself in oblivion. Or during fast youtube videos - especially changes between black and white, the white will have a yellow ghost following it..

Anyways, I believe if I want to get it replaced they will but the 720p screen inside.

So what are your recommendations? the ghosting is quite annoying..

would I notice a huge difference between the old and the new resolution?

Dell :: Studio XPS 16 Screen Vs. Desktop Screen

Oct 13, 2009

Long ago (A year ago lol) I bought the Gateway FX gaming notebook. It was a great PC and could not beat the price with the hardware and performance it offered, however the screen was really bad.

At first glance it wasnt, 1080p res and good brightness level, but when I plugged in my old external LCD monitor to dual screen, I was floored. My 4 year old desktop LCD screen was almost better in every single way.

The Gateways colors were dull, muddy, and dark, no matter how much I recalibrated the screen, I could not get it to look anywhere as good when compared to my Samsung screen on my desk.

Sony :: Is The 1920x1080 Screen On The Style Uk Site A X-black Screen With Multiple Lamp

Feb 13, 2009

is the sony FW35V(customizable) on the sony style uk site a 1920x1080 a dual lamp LCD?
it says 16.4" H1080 WXGA++ (1920 x 1080) Widescreen X-black LCD screen with built-in "Motion Eye" Digital Camera, but is it a 1920x1080 dual lamp, multiple lamp(how many?) orr single lamp? make sure its the fw35v not the fw35x. the fw35v is the one that costs 60 to upgrade the screen. the fw35x says HD1080 (1920x1080) X-black LCD with multiple lamp, which im guessing is a dual lamp LCD right? also is the Dual lamp worth it for 60?
what does it do? give brighter?, sharper?, more deep and rich colours? or something else?
