Having problems with your E-Machines eMachines Monitor E15T4 ?

Weird blink problem...

\015 The monitor to my computer died recently.. It was an old piece of **** CRT HP monitor. However, that is becides the point.\015\012\015\012Since this house had two computers, I decided to take the eMachines monitor from this computer (an 2.2 GHz eMachine with an ATI graphics card and Windows XP) and temporarly put it on the computer with no monitor (a dual-core 2.8 GHz Gateway with its default Intel graphics card and Windows Vista).\015\012\015\012The eMachines monitor works fine on the eMachine computer. No complaints.\015\012\015\012However, the eMachine had a problem on the Gateway. It worked fine for three or so hours (all I was doing was chatting in Pidgin and using Firefox), then it started acting funky. It blinked to that DOS line (remember, the single blinking underscore?), then it blinked back to Vista, only this time everything was huge and the resolution was off. It blinked again and returned to the DOS line. It blinked again it was back to normal. Before I could even do anything, it blinked back to the DOS line before finally blinking to this weird screen with Ansi/Ascii "partical walls" (if you ever played door games in the early 1990s, you know what I'm talking about) with some Ansi/Ascii smilely faces and other **** near the top-center of the screen.\015\012\015\012I immediately turned off the computer and turned it back on in safe mode. I ran a scan using AVG virus scan and after a long wait, it found nothing. So, I'm wondering--what the hell is the problem? Is it an issue of hardware? Is Vista being stupid... again? Did AVG miss some hot new virus on the street? Please, I implore you to help.\015

Answers :

That's definitely a hardware (incompatiblity) problem. Download the most updated driver for the graphics card. Also see if there is a monitor driver for the monitor.

I understand it worked seamlessly for the emachine but you should switch it back for a day or two to rule out the monitor just screwing up.
