The screen on my Samsung v25 laptop has gone all funny the graphics are almost unveiwable as if you are trying to tune the picture on an old tv etc, i believe the hinges are having an effect on the quality of the picture as when tilting the lid the pictures deteriates


Answers :

It sounds like the laptop monitor has become disconnected from the inside somehow. Either that or your video card needs a new driver. You need to go into device manager and see if there is an exclamation mark beside your video card or the monitor. If there is, that means there is a problem with the video card.

I'm trying to help my mum in spain.... (I'm in England.. unfortunately!) have just taken her HP G6000 notebook out to her and when she tried to turn it on it has a black screen.
