\015 When switching on my laptop, sometimes it will boot up into bios and continue to access the hard drive. The next time I boot up the laptop is either dead or the screen does not display a solid image. It has a mutitude of pixelated colours and garbage lettering. This happens often. And sometimes normal picture changes into pixelated after normal start up.\015
Its either a problem with a memory "ram" or the graphic chip. changing the ram would solve it, if not a graphic chip can not be fixed.

I am trying to burn a DVD that is 1 hour and 49 minutes long and it will not burn correctly. On a DVD-RW it only recorded just a small amount at the beginning and also had music in the background. I tried a DVD-R and it would not work at all. It also seems that the video file is larger than what the DVD can hold but I am using 4.7GB (2hours).

Monitor shutdown My computer intermittently shuts the monitor down after it has been running and has set idle for an hour or two. The only way I can get it back on is to reboot the computer. I have a PM800-M2 (1) motherboard with a Pentium 4 3.2Ghz processor. My monitor is an Envision 17'' CRT. The green light on the monitor turns to amber when it looses its signal. My experience tells me it could be the onboard video and if it is would adding an AGP video card possibly resolve this problem?
Yes adding an AGP video card will likely fix it. Although you try not turning off the hard drive(s) and if that doesn't help, not turning off the System Standby in Power Options.\015\012\015\012Another thing to try is open MSCONFIG and st ... Computer Monitors
