HP/Compaq :: Video Card- Screen Has Either Been Doing A Brief Flash Or Weird Movement And Then Locks Itself Up

Nov 26, 2009

my computer screen has either been doing a brief flash or weird movement and then locks itself up. Everything is running but the screen, which is frozen in place (the mouse icon is also frozen). I was wondering if anyone had suggestions on how to fix this. I thought it was an overheating problem, but it's sitting at 53ēC and still does it. It started doing this when I was playing WoW (only while playing), but that was 3-4 weeks ago and until now the computer worked fine.

It will also no longer restart itself; it goes through the shut down process but then basically powers off as if I just turned it off versus shutting down turned off (this laptop has distinctive sounds for both which is how I can tell). Normally I can wait a minute or two and then turn it back on and it boots up (if I try to turn it on right after it cuts off after a second). Now however, it gets to the first logo then cuts off. I have used compressed air to blow in the vents to get rid of dust if that might be a factor.

Dell :: M1730 Weird 8700 Video Card

Oct 24, 2009

I have noticed that some code that uses directx (opengl doesn't seem to have the issue, but I have not tested it extensively so it might just be a coincident) it seems to freeze on startup and hangs the machine to the point where the cursor won't move and that lasts for a good amount of time, maybe 20 seconds.

The odd thing though, is that when the game is running, it runs fine... even in Windowed mode. Except if I click another window outside the game, like I select the task manager window and then my machine hangs again for a while then I basically have to close the game, which takes a long time to close while my machine is hung and if I let it sit, it will eventually close and come back.

I have tried it in SLI mode (my pc specs are at the bottom), in Single mode, I searched online and some suggest it might be a video card issue, has anyone here with M1730 or similar machines experienced the same thing?

Dell :: XPS M1710 Weird Tearing Effect In Full Screen Video?

Apr 15, 2009

During recent travel I have noticed that while watching videos on fullscreen with VLC Player or Media Player Classic on the laptops own monitor, there seems to be a weird tearing-like effect on the screen.

That "problem" however does not exist with Windows Media Player, or on an external monitor (as at home).

Any ideas what might cause this? I'm running Windows XP SP3 with all the recent updates and my video card is GF 7900 GTX 512MB.

HP/Compaq :: Which Model For Streaming Flash Video

May 12, 2009

Looking to pick up a notebook for almost the sole purpose of hooking up to an HDTV over HDMI and watching online streaming video. I was looking at the dv2z but the slower processor was a concern for Flash-based video and other processor intensive streaming video. Am I safe going with the dv2z, or should I be looking at the dv3z? Or even the dv4t? All three seem to be in the same approximate price range. More compact is better, but acceptable performance is most important.

HP/Compaq :: HP Envy 15 Flash Video Performance On Battery

Apr 30, 2010

Playing an SWF (flash) file with video embedded in on AC power looks great. When unplugging the power and working on battery, the same video becomes very sluggish and unwatchable.

I've checked all power setting and ATI control panel and changed all "Optimize video on battery" I could find.

Lenovo Yoga 3 Pro Flex :: Movement (scrolling) On Screen Interferes With Sound?

Oct 19, 2014

Just picked up my brand new Yoga 3 Pro a few days ago and on the whole I love it, except I've just noticed there's an odd issue when listening to music (whether it be local or streaming thru spotify).
 
If I'm browsing a document in Word or even when accessing the Lenovo Support screen from the Start menu, any left to right horizontal scrolling (either with the touch screen or touchpad) causes a crackling interference to the sound. I did notice it would crackle as the Discussion forum cards were loading up and appearing too. 
 
It's not the physical speakers themselves because this occurs thru headphones as well. 
 
Strange thing is it doesn't occur when scrolling vertically through a document. 
 
On the whole it's not a HUGE problem, but given it's a brand new 2grand laptop, now while it's still brand new and I haven't even had a chance to load much onto it. How to stop this from happening?

Dell :: Blue Screen Of Death Help (video Card)

Oct 12, 2007

I've got a problem. I downloaded and installed the new demo for Time Shift. After it was complete it said it detected I did not have the latest drivers for my video card and I needed to download the latest ones for stable running of the game. So I clicked ok and it took me to a download of a Forceware driver (I've forgotten the numbers and have deleted it). After downloading it and running it, a box popped up and said I don't have the the compatible hardware/software to install those drivers (not exact words). So I thought ok, it will just exit and keep what I've got (dells stock 7900GTX driver). but after exiting the setup about 5 seconds later I got a blue screen stating a hardware error.
So I restarted my M1710 to notice blue dashed vertical lines on my screen and after the Windows XP loading page it would blue screen again so fast I cant read any of it. Now I can run in safe mode without the graphical screw ups on my screen. But the boot diagnostic detected no error. It displayed all those colored bars but there were weird glitches in them. I downloaded and re-installed Dells stock drivers to no avail. I searched my hardrive and registry for anything that said Forceware or the driver number and deleted all results. I system restored to no avail. So now I can only run in safe mode on a really ugly resolution.

What can I do before I resort to the 5+ day pain of return to depot service?....

Device manager shows no problems but says it can state the status of the card in safe mode. And I'm not technical enough to know how to use the event viewer to work out what went wrong.

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 Inspiron 15R 5521:: AMD Graphic Card - Screen Suddenly Went Black While Watching Video

HP/Compaq :: New DV6t 4650 Video Card

Apr 10, 2009

I just took the wraps off my new DV6t. I live in Japan so I had to wait two weeks while my parents spent $150 dollars to ship it to me, but it finally got here and...

There's artifacting everywhere. Little pink boxes appear even when I'm mousing over things in the file explorer, and when I opened up the catalyst control center (and it shows the two 3D scenes for comparison) there was artifacting like crazy!

I tried uninstalling the drivers, but the pink boxes still continue to spawn in random places on the screen. Then I went to ATI's website but apparently they don't hand out drivers for the mobility 4650... so I had to go to HP's website and get the same stuff I had before. Nothing solved...

HP/Compaq :: HP DV9500T Video Card Dead

Jan 20, 2009

I bought this hp dv9500t laptop in oct, 2007 and is now out of warranty.

I have updated Vista to SP1. Yesterday, I was playing a song in windows media player while the lid was kept closed. Suddenly, the song went into trrrrr like sound and the machine rebooted on its own. After having rebooted on its own, the display went into lowest bit depth (6 bit/600x480!), I had to manually change it to 32 bit / 1680x1050.

Then to my shock, I found, the video adapter was not Nvidia and it defaulted to default generic VGA driver in display properties.

Later I tried reinstalling the nvidia driver and even upgraded it to latest from laptopvideo2go site. But nothing solves the issue, it never identifies any nvidia display driver.

Looks like the display card got corrupted after upgrade to sp1.

What options do I have now? How much will it cost me to get the video card replaced, if it is determined that the card is corrupted? I am in India now, so I am clueless where I need to send this machine to get serviced?

HP/Compaq :: HP HDX 18tGeForce GT 130M Video Card

Mar 13, 2009

which GeForce GT 130M card configuration this laptop comes with?

The NVidia site says:

1) Memory Clock (MHz) = 500 (DDR2) or 800 (GDDR3) MHz

2) Memory Bandwidth (GB/sec) = 16 (DDR2) or 25 (GDDR3)

Here is the NVidia link to this card - [url]

I went to the HP site but it doesn't say anywhere in the specs of what the Memory Clock is or the Memory Bandwidth of the included GeForce GT 130 card. For the Memory Clock and Memory Bandwidth, I really hope it's using both the GDDR3.

Apple :: IPad And Flash Video.

Apr 16, 2010

my family are looking to chip in together to get my mom an e-reader for her birthday. Then we thought we'd look at the iPad. It's twice the cost, but it seems to do so much more. However, if we're gonna spend the money, I know she'd like to be able to watch Hulu shows and YouTube stuff.

In another post here someone mentioned that the iPad WILL play flash, although the Apple rep I talked to said it will not. If you have to do anything special or jump through hoops to make it work, then I'm not interested, but what is the case then and how do you make it work if at all?

I am looking at the HP DV4I video card and cannot find out anything about this card online. I see info on the desktop version but the mobility version seems to be new. Would this card be OK for light gaming -mostly older titles? Does anyone have this card or know where I can find some benchmarks? I know it's not top of the line. It's not even listed on notebookcheck.

HP/Compaq :: Video Card Might Have Died (pavilion Dv9730nr)

Feb 4, 2010

I bought a dv9730nr about a year and a half ago and never had any problems with it until a week ago. I was playing PES 2010 and suddenly, after the menu screen the screen went to black, everything froze and this weird "color" barcode appeared on top of the screen. I freaked out and rebooted the laptop, but it didn't even show the bootsplash and the "barcode" still appeared on top of the pitch black screen... after a couple of tries, I could get it to show the bootsplash and actually managed to system-restore it. Then it crashed again and I had to repeat the process.

When I actually got it working, I tested it again with a different game, and this time it gave me the nvlddmkm driver error and a BSOD. After the reboot, there was this ugly barcode again, so I had to repeat the "process" (rebooting time and time again until bootsplash appeared). Though it worked for a couple of days, yesterday I tried to watch a video and it froze, no nvlddmkm error, just the black screen and the color barcode. It took me hours to get around that and when I thought everything was fine (as fine as things could be, anyway), surfing the net and watching some images... bam, the screen went to black and I had to force a shutdown. Again, ugly barcode on top after I rebooted... but this time I have been trying since yesterday to get around it and do a system restore but to no avail - every single time I reboot, there's this black screen with those vertical color lines...........

HP/Compaq :: Video Card, Keyboard And Point-stick -- Comparison

Jan 21, 2010

Im interested in the HP ProBook 6540b:

I presently have a Lenovo T500 with the ATI 3650 video card, primarily use the UltraNav mouse (similar to point-stick), and regard the Lenovo keyboard as being pretty nice. Yes, i actually DO think the T61 keyboard was better.. but that's besides the point. What I want to know is..

How does the 3650 compare to the 4550?
How does the ultranav compare to the point-stick?
How is the keyboard in comparison to a Lenovo?

My desire is to have a number pad, nearly equivalent keyboard, faster graphics (its newer, it should be better), and hopefully, the point-stick doesn't drift like my Lenovo does. I don't do CAD, only light video encoding, and I fully intend to play Diablo-iii if it ever comes out.

HP/Compaq :: DV7 And Windows 7 - Update (audio/video/touchpad/sd Card Reader)

Feb 28, 2009

I just finished installing Windows 7 on my new dv7-1285dx and while everything works just fine after a Windows update (audio/video/touchpad/sd card reader), when I run device manager there are three devices with no drivers and a small yellow exclamation mark on their icon. These three devices are all listed as "Base System Device" and when I tried searching for a driver update online it didn't find anything. I visited HP's drivers page for my model and I think I have everything listed there already working... It's just these three devices which I don't even know what they are.

In the original Vista install that came with the laptop there are no such errors in Device Manager. I already have my recovery discs if these might help in this situation.

Here my laptops full specs, you can find them here:

HP/Compaq :: HP Pavillion Dv6040 Startup Fail, 1 Long 2 Short Beeps. Probably Video Card

Oct 11, 2009

I have an HP Pavillion dv6040 laptop, 3 years old. Today, after 3 years of nearly flawless operation, it will not start. It gives 1 long and 2 short beeps, and then nothing. The lights turn on, the fans run, but the screen remains off (black with the backlight off).

I believe it is a video problem (looked up the beeps online). The laptop has an Nvidia GeForce 7200 Graphics card.

Or does anyone know if it's possible to replace the video card in such a laptop?
