Flicky/fuzzy screen on startup, getting worse.

  ITBuffoon 12:08 15 Jun 2014

I am having problems with my Fujitsu Lifebook (AH531). It's almost 2 years old, and it's had a lot of use.

On start up (from full shut down or hibernation), I see a fuzzy/distorted screen load, but usually it settles down fairly quickly, to display a normal screen. It appears at the logon to Windows (7) screen.

I have a screen print of what happens, but I can't see how to upload it. I had to turn off today (without shutting down properly) and hope it would work Ok on restart, which it did.

Basically, I am worried hard disk failure is coming soon. I've backed up the data on my hard drive, but can you suggest anything?

Try reloading the graphics drivers.

If you have an external monitor, connect it up and see if it is the same. If same then graphics chip / driver issue.

If the external monitor is fine it is probably a loose cable to the lid.

Many thanks! I will try all that.
