Problem with my display

#1

Hej,

I have got a new problem on my computer.
The monitor displays unsharp and like “pixelate” picture, and this is the same from when I turn on the computer ( when windows 7 is starting) and all the time,even dog when I use different applications.
On the other side, there are like regnbue colours/, horisonatal lines on the display which are changing according to different baggrounds on the display.
I have reinstalled the system,used all the possible updates for drivers for my screen and grafic card,tryed to see how the picture looks in safe mode, but it was the same as in normal mode, with all of this problems.
I’m wondering that the computer is showing that there are no problems with the grafic card and the screen too, it shows that they are working well.

What can I do?
Please help!

My computer is Acer Aspire 9300, grafic card is Nvidia GeForce Go 7300, 128 MB.

Is it a big problem?

To me it sounds like your graphics card is dying. To eliminate the possibility that it’s the display, output the video to another monitor if you have access to one.

Do you have a bootable CD, like a Windows disk or Linux? If not, download something like Puppy Linux, http://puppylinux.org/main/index.php?file=Overview%20and%20Getting%20Started.htm, burn it to a CD and then boot from the CD just to see if you have the same problem, which if you do, means that the problem is hardware related, either the graphics card or the display. Just a thought.

I’m betting that the problem is the graphics card/chip, I’ve had similar problems when the video card is going bad. I don’t know what it will cost to fix, you will have to decide if it is worth it. Good luck and let us know what happens. :slight_smile:

To be honest I have no experience with replacing/repairing laptop displays so I don’t know which option is cheaper. Maybe you should double check the connections if you’re not afraid of opening your laptop. At least now you know for certain where the problem lies. Good luck Janajark. :slight_smile: :slight_smile:
