fuzzy screen and too large windows

Q: fuzzy screen and too large windows

am using windows 98. want to change montior to flat screen. tried a NEC but was told by NEC my 98 couldn't support 1024 x ?, so got a KOGI that had been hooked to an old 95. screen is fuzzy and windows are so large i can't reach the apply or ok buttons. in display there is a minus (-) in front of display adapters; the subtitle is NVIDIA Aladdin TNT2 and a minus (-) in front of monitors with the subtitle of GVISIONL5QX-TIA. Should the display adapters and monitors subtitles be the same? I think the NEC was NVIDIA and I think the KOGI is the GVISION. Any suggestions of Annie?

Your video driver probably needs to be updated. If you have a separate video card, go to that manufactures site to download the latest driver, or if you don't have a separate card, go to your Computer manufacturers web site and download the Display driver for your model of computer.

Since upgrading my xps13 L321x to windows 10, my display goes fuzzy/glitching/corrupted after a few minutes of use, you can still make out what's on the screen but its very fuzzy.  

Once it goes fuzzy, If I close the lid, and open the lid, then I'm presented with the login screen which looks ok again, and when I log on then the display is ok, for a couple of minutes
This started immediately after the windows 10 update.
Please help

A:XPS 13 display problems / screen goes fuzzy - after windows 10 upgrade

I experienced this problem on my XPS 13 once I upgraded from windows 7 to 8, and have still got the issue with windows 10 although it has been less frequent.
I have got a script on my desktop which turns the screen off and you can wake it back up by moving the mouse, this seems to fix the problem.
I have had this issue for quite sometime and have never found somebody else reporting the same thing!

Hi, I'm having trouble with the screen on my Toshiba Satellite L775-S7352 when it reaches the Welcome screen on Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit. This happens while reaching the Windows Welcome screen & sometimes it will reach the desktop before going fuzzy. It boots fine into Safe Mode.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JpwnCvsN-G8

I've already checked the HDD and the Memory - they are fine... I've done a fresh install of Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit from the manufacturer's recovery disks - the screen and everything else worked fine even through the first round of Windows Update (193 files) the machine rebooted after the updates and I checked for more updates. As soon as the installation of the second round of updates began the screen went buggy.

So I formatted the HDD and tried another reinstall - I successfully reinstalled the system and this time the screen went buggy trying to search for the first update for this reinstall...

Is this an issue with the screen or the GPU? any ideas?

Thanks,

Mike

Hi,

I need help... my Win7 is crashing FREQUENTLY. But I haven't found a similar description anywhere. The screen goes fuzzy as if the same image in the different colors but is offset... then bluescreen (also offset) and reboot. I can watch 2 videos on hulu, play a flash game for 30 minutes while listening to winamp, then when I switch to an open word file, it fuzzes (not like this everytime, just an example).

It doesn't seem to be heat related. It can happen within minutes of booting or after two days of running fine.

My device manager lists my monitor as Generic PnP, but the Win7 hardware display box shows it (correctly) as an LG L194WT.

All of the critical events are Kernel-Power events.

Other stuff - Windows won't recognize my USB hub. Everything that is plugged in directly is recognized and works (camera, video camera, external HDD), but nothing works through the hub.

This is a clean install (running about 3 weeks). I do have AVG, but only the free version.

MSI Kseries motherboard
Athlon 64XP 4000+
2 gig mem
NVIDIA GeForce 7300
LG L194WT monitor

Any assistance would be appreciated!

I Have A Dell F500 That Has A Continuous Fuzzy Screen. To Clear It I Have To Hold Down The Top Of The Screen Continuously. If I Don't Hold Down At The Top Of Screen The Fuzziness Reappears. How Can This Be Corrected ? Thanks For Your Help.

A:Fuzzy Screen

Depending on it's age, you might be able to improve it by degauzing. There should be a control somewhere on the monitor in with the color, size, etc controls.

When you activate degauze it will cause the screen to go crazy for a moment, but should settle down within a few seconds.

Degauze eliminates magnetic interference from the screen. The most common cause of magnetic interference is having speajers too close to the computer screen, but even if you don't have speakers at all, eventually a magnetic imbalance will occur in any tube type screen.

Very old monitors (I've never had a color monitor last more than 10 years) just get fuzzy, no matter what. All you can do then is reduce resolution or replace the monitor.

Hello xFearex and welcome to the forum.

From your photo, your desktop doesn't seem to be fuzzy whatsoever. However, you can try to switch the ends of your DVI or VGA cable that is attaching your computer to it's monitor. Just off the top of my head, you may also try updating your video driver or changing your screens resolution.

Hi everyone,
I've just purchased the new XPS 13 with windows 10 pro and text seems extremely fuzzy in certain applications (chrome, firefox mainly).
I have tried Dell support and they suggested I use the Edge browser instead!!!
For a $2,000 machine I have to say that's very poor, I have read some of the other complaints with all sort of suggestions, fixes etc (none of them have worked) but should I be spending hours and hours researching and testing when it should just work? Has anyone managed to find a solution?
I've paid for a premium product and I expect everything to work out of the box otherwise I can just go and buy a chromebook for $500!

A:Fuzzy Screen - What The ?

Hello fireslguk and welcome to the BC HijackThis forum. It appears that the malware issue was also posted at GeeksToGo and resolved with Phil in their HijackThis forum .

From the post in their XP forum I would say that the screen problem could be related to a driver issue but I think rather that it is more hardware related. The monitor works fine after it has wamed up which would point to either a video card issue or a monitor issue. Since laptops are very difficult to work on by the user you might want to have it checked out either at the manufacturer or a reputable local repair shop. Hve them give you a quote on what needs to be done since oftentimes replacement costs can sometimes be more than the price of a new laptop.

One thing you might want to try is hooking up an external monitor to see if you get the same result. If not, then it is definitely a monitor issue.

Cheers.

OT

Help!
I hope this is the right forum.
I have a wierd problem in that a vertical area in the centre of the monitor screen is fuzzy in appearance. If I, for example, move a desktop icon to the edge of the screen it becomes clearer as It is moved - there is not a sudden change. Can anyone advise whether this is a graphics card (Ati Radeon 7200) or monitor (Iiyama) problem or if anyone has any suggestions........ I have tried all the controls on the monitor and have tried internet searches but there appears to be nothing on this problem (at least not using the terms I use for it!)
Any help or advice gratefully received.
 

A:Fuzzy middle of screen!

More than likely your problem is within the monitor itself. It is something known as convergence. All about how you get clarity and sharpness of each pixel. Three separate electron beams of the CRT converge on a separate pixel.

First you can try swapping the monitor to another computer just to be sure. If it is convergence, the problem will not go away and you cannot adjust it out with the front panel controls.

What is involved is a tuning process inside the monitor to line up the beams just so. Usually there might be some trim type pots, gross adjustments are made via little magnets or sliding yokes or coils of wire on the CRT. Way out of most peoples league, plus you need special test gear / pattern generators. Normally the adjustments are made to attempt to get the center parts of the screen as close to perfect as possible. On cheaper monitors the edges of the screen tend to a tad off. Can be a tricky adjustment as color is affected as you tweet. Sounds like yours was adjusted to tight and the edges got the bias that normally is given to the center.

If you can demonstrate the monitor is really well out of adjustment and it is under warranty, they should have to either adjust it for you or give you a new one.

One thing you can try is degauss the monitor with the built in controls, probably won't fix it but always worth the shot to see what the effect is.

Hi, I was wondering if anyone knew what exactly was up with my computer or monitor? I think I have pinpointed it to a computer problem, but anyway, here is the situation:

One day my screen just flickered bright all of a sudden. After that it would flicker bright a few more times, and finally, everything on the screen just turned greenish and fuzzy or smeared-looking. It is still this way as I am posting this message. At first I thought the monitor was going bad, so I changed monitors, but to no avail: the screen was still fuzzy green. I've tried restarting many, many times, and it is the same. I haven't placed any sort of magnetized object in the computer room, so it couldn't be that, I wouldn't think. I do have a graphics chipset on the motherboard (rather than a video card), could it be going bad? Also, my main question here, I'm seriously considering buying a new computer over this, should I? This computer is 3 years old, approximately. Thanks for your concern.

Since it is at the very least an onboard graphics chip and at the most the motherboard, I think you would be wsie to get a new system.

My husband just built a new computer. Sometimes the monitor goes blurry, or fuzzy, and everything looks out of focus. We have tried going into safe mode and the problem doesn't happen in safe mode.

The monitor is a Dell M992 and the video card is a GeForce FX5700LE.

If he plays an online game, the problem mostly goes away, and stays away for up to an hour after he stops playing the game. We have reformated the hard drive and nothing changed.

I can't use the computer for more than 5 minutes at a time because I get a headache from trying to read blurry words. Any ideas on what this could be? All of the video drivers are up to date as far as we know. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My friend's Emachine's Computer, model T2042 with window xp shows fuzzy text on the screen. I have not ruled out the fact that the monitor may be bad. I have not found a monitor as of yet to try and see if this is the problem. I am also thinking it may be an outdated driver that could be causing this as this computer was purchased in 2003. I checked emachine's website and noticed that they had released a driver for this computer model as late as 2009. Would this driver be an update to the one that came with the machine, or would it be a complete standalone driver? This is not explained very well by Emachine and there are no longer any information listed for this computer on their website. Here what I am wondering. If I decide to use this driver from their websige, should I uninstall, or disable, the onboard driver first, or should I install over top of the old driver? It seems that if this driver was an update, it did not say, that I could simply install over top of the old one. However, if it is not an update, and it is a standalone driver, would this make any difference to install over the old driver? I do not want to make things any worse.

Hi,
I am having this problem recently...whenever I am watching video in youtube
or talking in skype, my entire laptop screen becomes fuzzy and then it freezes....my cursor/keyboard...nothig works. I can only get rid off it by turning the power off.
I have the feeling it might have something to do with flash-player....so removed it...but
still it happened! I have dual-boot systems (Vista+ windows 7)..I hardly used
Windows 7 as my laptop does not support it 100%...so I checked if it also happens in Windows 7....it does not.

I do not know how can I get rid off THIS PROBLEM:

Any help will be very much appreciated.

Thanks,
Sharif
 

A:Screen becomes fuzzy and it freezes in Vista

Try updating the video driver. You should be able to find it on your laptop vendor's site.

Hey,

Built a new computer a few days ago and seems to run ok accept for the 3rd time now the screen has gone all fuzzy and as i cant select anything on screen i can only assume system has crashed too. This seems to happen randomly and normally after the computer has been running a while today it has been running for about 3 hours then did it.

Im running off the on board graphics card on my ASUS p8h67M-pro motherboard...i have a grapohics card which i will be using soon once the correct cables come for it.

Does anyone know if this is a faulty monitor or motherboard/graphics issue? im not running any games/video when this has happened also have a 450 psu.

infact the full spec is:

Motherboard ASUS P8H67-M PRO
Processer - i5 2300
Ram - Corsair 2x 4gb
Powersupply - 450W
Graphics Card - Gainward GeForce GTX 460
Monitor - LG Flatron W1946 16:9
 

A:Computer crashes with fuzzy screen

I suspect at first look that your PSU is under powered but would need to check it. What is the model and make of the PSU. How many hard drives and what make are they and likewise for the CD/DVD drives. What version of Windows are you running.

This only happens when my brother plays video games on his computer. Comprehensive virus and spyware scans have found nothing.

The following games crash, due to the diversity of the games we think it is something to do with Graphics.
Oblivion, Everquest 2, Call of Duty 2, Morrow Wind, Age of Empires 3, Anarchy Online, World of Warcraft, Ultima Online. Vanguard, Battlefield 1942.

Whether he is playing hours or seconds he gets this problem. The time it takes to crash is not dependent on the level of graphics the game has.

It seems that prolonged breaks allow my brother to play for longer.

We have tried to uninstall reinstall the graphics driver, we have tried different versions of the driver. It doesn't help.

The symptoms.
1) Brother plays a game
2) Now the problem... firstly the color becomes more dull. At the same time 3-4 pixel long white horizontal lines 'rain' across the screen from right to left. The sound either loops or gets stuck on a single note. This all happens at the same time. The computer crashes - or very rarely we can alt-tab to desktop, moments later the computer crashes.

The screen itself has been tested with my laptop, its fine.

Does anyone have any ideas on what is causing this? What do I need to provide, what tests can we do?

So I turned on my laptop this morning and the screen looks like this. When plugged into an external monitor the external screen is perfectly fine so it's not a graphics card issue. I checked the LCD connections from the screen and the motherboard. Any other suggestions or should I try to replace the cord? The picture doesn't really show how fuzzy the screen is but it's fuzzy enough to make reading difficult.

As the title says, my screen is all messed up. I forgot to shut it down one night and woke up to my background being all messed up, everything is fuzzy, and appears to be zoomed in slightly. It has the terrible clarity of one of those really cheap wide-screen, jumbo-screen laptops. I did accidentally leave Limewire running, so I thought a virus slipped through but after running a million scans through my symantec, as well as Malwarebytes and others, it came up with trojan.brisv.a!inf but it was partially cleaned and quarantined, so I don't think thats the problem. I also did the removal tool from symantec with no luck. Is this something other than a virus, like some setting I accidentally could have changed? I posted a similar topic in the "am i infected" forum but nobody has even replied. I run vista on a toshiba satellite.

A:screen is messed up; fuzzy, "zoomed in"

Hmm, not sure what to tell you, just saw no replies so decided to try to help. Have you tried to change your screen resolution? If not, try that. Other than that I'm not sure, maybe the lack of care for your computer. You just might have to buy another screen.

My computer locks up with a fuzzy screen.

I have an HP Pavilion m9077c-b quad core computer running Windows 8.1. It has an Nvidia GeForce8500GT video card and I suspect it is going bad, but haven’t convinced myself that it is the problem.

I checked the following:
1. Overheating (Checked with SpeedFan Program)
a. GPU temperature initially 79° C
b. After blowing out the case, temperatures ran in the 72-75°C range – still lock ups
c. With fan blowing into the case and the temperature at ~67°C, still locked up.
d. All 3 fans, PS, GPU and case fans are running.

Note – GPU Temperature may be slightly high, but seem to be within specs for Nvidia

2. Drivers
a. Updated Nvidia driver
b. Installed a Nvidia hotfix dated 4/15/14 – Still locked up
c. Other pertinent drivers seem to be up to date

3. In NORMAL mode, had lockups running the following, mostly individually, but sometimes in combo:
a. MS Outlook
b. File Explorer & Adobe PDF
c. MS Digital Image
d. Internet Explorer
e. Web Camera
f. MS Word
g. Turbocad (3D rendering program like Autocad)

4. In SAFE MODE, ran most of the above overnight with no problems (but no video card?)

5. In SAFE MODE WITH NETWORKING, ran most of these programs for 8 hours with no lockupsl

A:Computer locks up with a fuzzy screen

Hi, firstly, what is a 'premium power supply'? Make, model and wattage would be useful, although a 2 year old PSU should be more than capable of handing an 8500GT, unless it is complete garbage or totally underpowered.

Is this your PC? http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=uk&lc=en&docname=c01197667

If so, have you confirmed that you have all the right, certified Windows 8.1 drivers? Wouldn't be surprised if some parts in a machine from 2007 didn't have any certified Windows 8 drivers! Don't just rely on Windows itself to find the right ones.

A failing GPU could be a problem and that is an old GPU which is running a bit on the warm side. If you have access to any other, known working, GPU to test with that would help to confirm / deny the if that is the cause.

I recently got a new laptop (it's about 2 months old) which has all been working fine but today I took it with me to the library in my rucksack (first time I've done this) and when I got it out and opened it up again the screen was all fuzzy and flickering and seems to have tiny lines running all down the screen. After a while this stopped but then started up again, I did a system restore and it worked fine for about 15 minutes but then the problem reappeared and since then it's been happening on and off; it works fine for 10 minutes, then all fuzzy the next, this happens whether it's plugged in or running on battery

Does anyone know what could have caused this to happen in what's a brand new laptop pretty much? It was pouring down with rain when I was walking to the library with it in my bag but I don't see how that could have caused it because it wasn't wet at all or anything when I got it out? For what it's worth I didn't shut it down when I unplugged it and took it to the library which I guess was pretty stupid but I wouldn't have thought it could've cause this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Background:
I have an issue with UAC, since recently installing Vista on a fresh HDD. Whenever the User Account Control screen pops up when im installing something or otherwise (its seems to pop up way too often) the screen is messed up.
I am using vista ultimate 32. Its not feeling very ultimate right now.

Symptoms:
The UAC screen, which should normally be dimmed black/transparent, has become fuzzy and like a bad jumble of grey white and black on half of the screen, (which seems to vary from top to bottom on different instances). The yellow pop up image is fine, but the background dimming image is always messed up. My Video cards check out fine and have updated drivers.

Questions:
Is there a way to fix this without yet another fresh install of the OS?
Would a registry cleaning program fix this?
Should I just turn UAC off?

A:HELP - User Account Fuzzy screen popup

A query broken down by background/symptoms/questions always brings a little tear to my eye.

Yes, there's always a way to fix everything without reinstalling, except sometimes it's not as fast. It's hard to tell what's faster in your case until the root cause is understood.

When the background goes grey and you see the UAC prompt, what's actually happened is that a screenshot was taken of your current desktop, converted to B&W, and then presented as a simple bitmap background on the secure user logon desktop. In other words, you were briefly switched back to the logon desktop for security reasons - it prevents screen scrapers and similar utilities from messing with the UAC prompt and pressing buttons you may not want pressed.

Although I've never seen that symptom myself, what's actually happening to you is that the desktop screenshot is being corrupted somehow.

Have you installed desktop "extender/enhancer" software?

Does the same thing happen when you boot to safe mode?

Can you post a camera photo of what this corruption looks like, just out of curiosity?

Last night my PC died when I was browsing the internet using Chrome. The screen went kinds fuzzy/pixelly/glitchy for less than a second and then died.

The machine restarted itself and I didnt get a chance to make a note of the error codes.

I have had the machine for about 2 years and have only had about 5 BSOD but the last 3 were in the last month on the 14th, 17th and 28th.

I had just re-installed windows when I got the first BSOD of the month.

I have noticed in the past my monitors occasionally flicker or I see a kinda line running horizontally through the screen, or the bottom half jumps a bit.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Counterfeit installations such as yours contains heavily modified code that causes the installation to behave it unexpected ways. Analysing BSOD's and determining their causes on these sorts of installations is very unreliable. For this reason, many analysts won't attempt it.

My recommendation is to install a genuine Windows 7. This will minimise the problems you are experiencing, and make subsequent diagnosis of BSOD's far more reliable. Once you are running a genuine Windows 7 installation, and are still experiencing BSOD's, we will be happy to help you solve them.

Hi MOOEEZ313,
Does the system overheat? Does this happen with or without the adapter connected? Are there any bluescreens / system crashes? What applications are you using when the issue occurs?
Update the BIOS - http://dell.to/2dl5Cp4- reinstall the video drivers and check.
If the issue is not resolved, run a stress test on the system - http://dell.to/1NEc1Y4
Connect an external monitor and check if the issue is seen on both external display and the LCD.
Restart the system and press f12 key on startup - choose diagnostics. Let it run the diags and if you encounter any errors - make a note of the complete error and report the same to us.These are onboard diagnostics and they might possible pick some error if the hardware is not functional.
Run the LCD bist - Turn off the system and press and hold the "D" key + power button to turn on the system and it should run the LCD built in self test - see this link for more info - http://dell.to/1SkXNrG - swivel the screen and check if the issue reoccurs.
If the system is under warranty, Please click my DELL-username and write me a private conversation with the service tag and your contact details(Name, Phone#, Address and Email). If there is no warranty, then you could contact our team to get a quote for a paid service call - http://dell.to/1vnT6CQ

Heya. I recently (for Christmas) received a new LOGIK monitor to accompany my old one and I'm having problems getting them both to run correctly. My old monitor used to be using a VGA cable with a DVI adapter at 1920 x 1080, where it worked fine. I plugged in my new monitor with a HDMI cable with a DVI adapter, however upon doing so, the resolution of the older screen was reduced to 1440 x 900 (or something like that) and my new monitor became fuzzy, as in, everything is out of focus and the colours seem dark / unnatural. I've tried using a HDMI cable with the older monitor, where I can get 1920 x 1080, however it too becomes fuzzy. I tried to use the VGA in my old monitor as that worked previously, but no longer does. The screens have their proper aspect ratios (dot to dot, full, whatever you want to call them) and are not using overscan. Sometimes I am able (after hours of playing with CCC and windows control panel) to make one of them display correctly, however after restarting it returns to being fuzzy. All of the cables are connected securely and my drivers are up-to-date (as of 01/01/14). I'll attach a screenshot for further reference (currently i'm just using 1 screen as I had to borrow the second HDMI cable - I'll be getting another in about a week). I've been browsing a wide number of forums for about a week now and cannot seem to get it to work. Sorry if I'm being vague, if there's any more information you need don't hesitate to ask. Thanks.

Hello,

About a week ago I noticed my screen was starting get little fuzzy marks on certain colors. mostly blue to start off so I would change my graphics options to make blue not as apparent which fixed it for the most part. except for the actual problem. Now the problem has worsened to where almost all colors are acting strange and no amount of change to the color would fix. I have hooked it up to another monitor and the fuzziness was gone so I know it isn't a virus or something just wrong with my computer. I believe it is a loose cable, but I don't really know which one or how how to find it once I have taken out the screws. If someone could get back to me and let me know what is exactly going on it would be appreciated.

PS. to clear this up it is not solid lines it is just fuzzy curvy splotches all over and it takes up certain colors.

Hi, I was watching a video and my screen started disolving and then the system crashed.  Now I have a blue screen when I boot.  I tried using Startup Repair and it said it could repair.  Then offered me an option to try restoring to an earlier time. When I took that option all the restores failed due to an inability to copy this file: "users/office/fonts/purchased/fonts/linotype_fonts/fonts".  I then tried booting and it again went to blue screen.
 
To me it seems like a virus. I have a dual boot Windows7 environment and then second system image runs fine.  I can also pop out of System Repair disk (using the Windows7 installation disks) and still see the files.
 
Do you have any suggestions?  I'd like to avoid reinstalling the software on the machine, as much of it is purchased with three or more cycles of updates and I'd have to go through all the upgrades and customization - likely weeks of work to get it all back to where it was before I watched the bad video :-(

it seems to be some interference of some sort, possibly? - maybe it needs to 'warm up' before it happens? I dunno, I can only speculate.

if anyone has any ideas what this may be I would appreciate it..

Bought new hard drive, did a fresh install of Windows XP, things were working fine until a few days later, computer starts flashing, then there are artifacts around things like the mouse cursor, it's unresponsive, then blue screen of death.

I loaded the most up to date driver from the NVidia website (I have a GeForce 8500 NT).

Can't find much on this problem out there, some have suggested overheating, etc. Can anybody help diagnose? Willing to try anything including buy a new video card if need be.

A:[SOLVED] WinXP screen flashes, then fuzzy, then crashy

When you reinstalled XP, did you also install the chipset drivers first after the initial install of the OS? If so, were they the latest ones?

Had you recently updated your copy of XP to SP2/3 as this can sometimes (although not very common) cause issues with the chipset drivers (most important drivers on your machine)

Is your video card seated correctly in the slot?

Just want to check those things before moving on.

Hi everyone, I am getting horizontal lines on my monitor and i have no idea why!
I can boot the computer just fine (computer is not overclocked), and it'll work perfectly fine for about 10-30 mins, then all of a sudden - i get fuzzy lines. It'll last between 2-10mins. It renders the screen unusable and the only way to clear it is to either reboot (and let stand for a while as if the computer needs to reset - otherwise even during startup it'll display these lines) or just wait for it to fix itself (10min or so).

This is a YouTube link to illustrate the issue:
Computer graphics card problem? - YouTube

Recently, my screen will just freeze and become covered with lines/boxes to the point where you can't tell whats on the screen. This usually happens within minutes of booting up. However, sometimes, everything will work fine for maybe half an hour and then it will happen. I know for sure it is not a problem with the monitor.

I assume this is most likely a video card issue, but I didn't want to buy a new one before confirming. I attached a picture of what the screen looks like after it freezes.

The card I wanted to buy to replace the old one is EVGA GeForce GTX 650.I would also like to confirm that this card will be compatible with my current setup. From my understanding, the current PSU and motherboard will accept it, but I don't know if anything else can affect this.

Thanks in advance.

I'm running Windows XP, and I recently got a new graphics card, Nvidea FX 5500. After the new card was installed, I noticed that when I visited certain websites, the screen turns a little fuzzy. If I close iexplorer or opera totally, then the screen goes back to being sharp and clear. I think the fuzziness has something to do with Javaapplets or flash, something on that order, because it doesn't happen all the time, and it's usually when some type of application loads.

Since Vista, the "Timeout Detection and Recovery" (TDR) components of the OS video subsystem have been capable of doing some truly impressive things to try to recover from issues which would have caused earlier OSs like XP to crash.

As a last resort, the TDR subsystem sends the video driver a "please restart yourself now!" command and waits a few seconds.

If there's no response, the OS concludes that the video driver/hardware combo has truly collapsed in a heap, and it fires off that stop 0x116 BSOD.

If playing with video driver versions hasn't helped, make sure the box is not overheating.

Hey,

Whenever I open Media Center or Flight Simulator X in full screen mode, the screen has a bunch of little RGB dots on it. This must be a software problem, since I just upgraded from 64-bit Vista Ultimate to 32-bit Vista Ultimate (Since my iPhone will not work with x64 Vista ). I tried google, and not a whole lot came up. I'm not an expert on RegEdit, but I'm sure I can figure things out if someone could just give a few quick steps to changing a registery value or whatever else needs to be done.

I'm also having a problem with the view settings: I had this problem real bad with Vista beta, but it is starting to pop up again. Not as bad, but every once in a while it will resize the windows to the defult size and sometimes switch to the 'list' view.

Any ideas? Any input would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!!!!

Hi all,
I need a bit of help, as I'm slowly losing my mind over the following problem. I run Xubuntu Linux on a HP Elitebook 8460p. Some two weeks ago, the entire left 3 cm margin of my screen started to display black/green/yellow/blue lines, which seemed to move constantly. Wiggling the screen and pressing here and there solve the problem temporarily, but only temporarily. Furthermore, the next 3 cm seem to be following suit. I ordered a replacement screen from a company here in The Netherlands and got to work. After replacing the screen, and a fresh startup, the screen displays a yellowish sheen, plus that it seems like every second vertical line in the display is "greyed out", making the screen fuzzy and hard to focus on. I thought something was wrong with the replacement screen and send it back, requesting another. The next screen had the same, but with a reddish sheen. The next new replacement (the third by now) had a blue-ish sheen. All three replacements had the vertical line problem. Placing my old, defect screen back shows a good image, that is, all vertical lines work properly. Another odd detail is that both in the second and third replacement screen, there can be seen a collection of static pixels (dark-red coloured) in the lower left corner in the configuration of a capital "C", in mirror image. Does anyone have the faintest idea what is going on here ? All help is greatly appreciated, many thanks !

Hi everyone,

I purchased a new MSI Radeon HD 7770 graphics card a few days ago and installed it into my pc.

Every time I try to complete simple tasks like, installing new software or playing games I get the same blue screen. Recently, It has started to flash before crashing, like the screen will go black, re-appear not allowing me to have any control and then it goes black again. This happens a few times until it shows the 0x116 BSOD.

It is either a blue screen or my monitor goes fuzzy and it completely freezes, forcing me to hold the power button or pulling the plug.

I've searched EVERYWHERE but I can't seem to find a suitable solution for my problem.

Hi all,
The screen of my Inspiron 3520 randomly becomes completely covered in white fuzzy lines; the entire screen.
There is no particular pattern for when this happens. It sometimes happens as soon as I log in and begin typing and/or clicking on the mouse pad, and on other occasions I can use the laptop for a good hour or two before it happens. Today, for example, I used the laptop for 5 minutes and it happened 4 times, with each occasion lasting about 20-30 seconds in duration. However, yesterday I used the laptop for over an hour and it didn't happen at all.
I imagine this is a hardware problem relating to a wire connecting the screen as it only happens when I'm actually using the laptop to type or surf the web etc (I can watch a film on the laptop for a straight 2 hours and it won't happen once, so long as I don't touch the machine). So I'm thinking that possibly the mild vibrations caused by me pressing the keys and/or mouse pad are causing a wire to disconnect or become lose. It doesn't matter if the laptop is 'hot' or 'cold: it's indiscriminate.
I have ran all the applicable tests on SupportAssist and no issue is found. I've also updated all drivers. About 6 months ago I upgraded from Windows 8.1 to 10 and the problem stopped for a short while, so I was hopeful it had been a software glitch. However it soon started again and now it's happening so frequently the laptop is basically useless, other than for watching films/c... Read more

Hey,

I just recently started having a problem with the sound on my Windows 7 desktop. Usually, I can listen to music just fine through my headphones and everything is clear and perfect. However, sometimes the music will get extremely fuzzy. It usually lasts for about 3 minutes, then it goes back to normal. This issue will occur over and over again while I am on my computer.

I can't imagine what it would be... I have checked all connections to the back of my computer and they are securely in place and not loose. Yesterday, I even took out my sound card and used some compressed air to maybe get dust out of the PCI slot that the sound card plugs into.

The problem didn't come back at all yesterday so I thought I had it fixed. But now it just came back today and it is driving me crazy! Do any of you have any ideas? Have any of you had this problem in the past or know how I can fix this?

Thanks!

Are you sure you have the Intel graphics package? You might have the AMD package. Either way there's a simple way to figure it out.

Hello all,

So, after being pestered my Microsoft for long enough I bit the bullet and updated from Windows 8 to Windows 8.1 (biggest mistake ever!!!) Basically, it has turned my very expensive laptop into a piece of garbage that I don't even want to look at. Dramatic? Maybe. True? Definitely. I am so upset.

Here's the scoop - before I updated I had crystal clear graphics and font, I could stare at my laptop screen for hours writing or editing without ever having eye strain. (shh.. don't tell my eye doctor..) Right after my laptop restarted after the update I knew something was terrible wrong. My nice, crisp front was now subtly fuzzy and just not right. Perhaps someone unfamiliar with my laptop may not even notice, but for me it is big. Now, looking at my screen is a task that dries and tires my eyes. I can't stand to read anything now on it because of the strain it's putting on my eyes and the inevitable head ache to follow.

I first searched the forums (which was a task due to this awful font) and I found a few solutions. First was to make sure my graphics cards were up-to-date. They are. I actually had a graphics card issue right after I updated -- my AMD Radeon card and Catalyst Controller would not work at all. I fixed it and now they are OK; fixing them did not fix my font. Next I enabled "Let me choose one scaling level for all my displays" and that did not do the trick. I had my font set on "Larger - 150%" back in Windows 8 because my sight is... Read more

I was in the middle of playing skyrim when the screen went black, and came up with a message "not support" which only happens when the computer goes to sleep. I rebooted and the screen turned green and fuzzy, when trying to start windows normally, right after the windows boot logo (which can't be recognized but the text can) the screen goes black and doesn't go any further. My b/f thought it *might* be just the new graphics card he had installed 3 days ago, so I removed it. No change. I tried to start up in safe mode (loaded completely to the desktop), and that worked but everything is still green and fuzzy. After about 2 minutes in safe mode, the screen will cut to black for a few seconds, come back to the desktop, back and forth. My next thought was heat, everything is running perfect and nothing is hot. This computer was upgraded last week; Windows 7 Ultimate, the ram, motherboard, and graphics card are brand new. Processor is a year old, and the power supply is roughly 2 years (I'm not completely sure). All hardware specifications that I know are on my profile, any other info I'd have to contact my b/f since he's the one who assembled this, and knows a lot more. All parts were bought from newegg.
