Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Green Screen The screen on my Evesham Voyager C550RD laptop goes green and flickers when tilted at different angles. I am unsure of what the problem is, but I thought installing the latest display drivers might be a good idea. It has an ATI Mobility Radeon X1600, so I need the latest drivers for this. Thanks

Hello James,

Well it could be\015\012several things, however my money is on one of two....

Its\015\012either a faulty/loose connection(one of the ribbons or a solder that\015\012has become loose) or it is a fault on the GFX card. \015\012
\015\012
\015\012
\015\012You can (and should) install the\015\012drivers for the card, but I think you may find that the fault is due\015\012to heating of the GFX.
\015\012
\015\012
\015\012The only way to resolve this, if, after\015\012downloading the drivers and they dont cure the fault, is to open up\015\012the computer and look for any loose connections and if you find any,\015\012then carefully push them together.
\015\012
\015\012
\015\012The solder will be harder to find if\015\012thats the fault, but look for any discolouration around the solder\015\012joint and carefully move whatever the solder\015\012 is attached to, to see if there is any give in it. You will\015\012probably see the solder move freely away from the pin that it is\015\012attached to.
\015\012
\015\012
\015\012However, the best advice would be to\015\012take it to a repair shop and let them look at it if your unsure of\015\012yourself and your ability to repair it.
\015\012
\015\012
\015\012One thing you CAN safely do is to use a\015\012small hoover attachment and to let it **** out all the dust from\015\012around the fan....I say this as I really do think that it is your GFX\015\012card overheating that is causing this, but either way, good luck with\015\012it.
\015\012
\015\012
\015\012If you found this helpful please rate\015\012it so that I know.

Hello- I just purchased a refurbished HP 1740 17inch flat screen LCD monitor from Overstock.com. The display is great, however on occasion the screen goes white.

Moving the mouse does not help. (It's done it once as I type this). I looked around-- one post said to delete the Logitech camera I
