Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Laptop Screen split 4 way

\015 I was watching a movie when my screen turned off, and my computer stopped responding. So I turned it off with the power button.Now when I boot it up, my screen has been divided up into 4, and each 1/4 shows the same thing. This happens as soon as I turn my computer on. I can't boot windows normally because I think the graphics drivers gives an error. If I uninstall the driver in safe mode, then I can boot windows normally.Things I've tried:Uninstalling, reinstalling, and updating display adapter.System Restore.Checked for loose cables behind screen.Any help would be much appreciated.*Just as I was typing this, I decided to check to see if it still had the problem but now it's working fine..... but I would still like to know if anyone knew what happened\015

Answers :

It's probably time to replace the graphics card. There probably was an error that stayed because it was not fixed and the computer shut off.

The screen on my packard bell laptop flickers. It is approx 1 year old. This happens if it has been on a while or has just powered up, when plugged in or running on battery regardless of what it is being used for (ie watching films, research etc). The screen flickers black. It will be running as normal then will flick once for a split second or it will do it continuously and eventually stay black. The only way to stop this seams to be lowering the screen so the laptop is almost closed, then re-o
