Screen issue

  stroudgreen 22:08 12 Jan 2008

Another help thread I'm afraid! I'm currently using a Fujitsu-Siemens AMILO Pro laptop. What used to be an occasional 'jumping' of the display has turned into a regular occurrence. The display will jump around and dissemble itself across horizontal lines, often making the screen totally unviewable.

I've decreased hardware acceleration in the advanced display options as reccommended by windows help, but to be honest, that's only alleviated rather than eliminated the problem. Any suggestions? All I can come up with is that my laptop might be jealous of me looking for a new system!

Try plugging it in to a standalone monitor, see if it's a monitor or a graphics card problem, either way it could be expensive to repair.

Have you gone into device manager to see if any problems with your graphics driver or anything else.Or can't you get in there any more.I presume it's the same problem when you start in safe mode,Maybe last good configuration if you can get in there.

bump! I think there might be an issue of outside interference - the disturbances are definitely worse at some times of day than at others. Is this reasonable to assume, or am I clutching at straws? Right now it's settled a little after a registry cleanup, but still flickers intermittently.
