When I start my laptop everything initially seems fine, with all details comming up etc. However the problem lies when the computer loads up the desktop. The desktop now just displays a black / blank screen? However I can hear things in the background popping up i.e. the virus programme promting me to update etc. but I can see nothing visually? The strange thing is, is that the laptop sometimes works fine and dispalys everything.
I have gone into safe mode and everthing appears again but I just cant seem to find what the problem is!
rodriguez: Not too sure if it will be a "loose connection where the screen is connected" as the screen displays everything fine prior to the desktop being dispalyed i.e. progress bag etc etc. Plus when I run in safe mode everthing is fine.
bosmere - Dont think it can be this as the screen always works when in safe mode.
Fruit Bat /\0/\ - "uninstall and reinstall the graphic" will I need a CD or something to re-install?
To reinstall the graphics you need the CD that ha the graphics drivers on it that should have come with the laptop. If you haven't got a CD try going to the graphics manufacturer's website to download them or go to DriverGuide (click here) and get a free account. This will give you access to almost any driver you need.
Thanks guys. Do you think it could be any other problem than the graphics card? Maybe the display setting of the laptop? I am saying this becuase I am asking myself why does the screen work sometimes (on rare occasions) and not the other, surely if this was a graphics card problem it would remain consistent?
