Having problems with your HP Pavilion dv2500t Notebook ?

Display is tiled

\015 When i boot up my HP DV2503 laptop the display is "tiled" into about 8 tiles split down the middle of the screen.\015

Answers :

I had the same problem a few months ago, I sent it into HP and got it fixed under warranty, hopefully you have that option. one thing i tried that worked for a sec was reseating the RAM or putting different ram all together. this computer gets extraordinarily hot for noooo reason.
I expect this is a feature accidentally enabled by a Control-Alt- unknown key (possibly the 8)
\015\012Some graphics cards have features allowing Control Alt Arrow to tilt the display left, right, upside down or up the right way.
\015\012If that doesn't work, see if you can remove the display device and reboot - it should reinstall the device and find the driver automatically, with default settings.
\015\012Is there anything in the manual about tiled display?

Hi guys, Am running Windows XP with SP2 ona Dell Dimension 3 Ghz system. Many of my screen icons will only now display like "tiles" rather than as proper icon. I have a file called icons for all the nice icons I like to use but even when I access this directory via Windows Explorer I still (mostly; not exclusively) get a "tile" view rather than the full colour picture icon. Any ideas would be welcomed. Thanks Mike Owen
