Having problems with your IBM NetVista PC Desktop ?

Monitor screen shows all sorts of colors in line patterns.

\015 Anytime I download any new games, or in this case it is Shaw's security system, the system boots up fine, but as you try to access the security system program, it will start up but then the screen goes into these line patterns and your pretty much doomed until you hard boot.\015\012\015\012Could this be the video card?\302\240 If so, can you tell me if the video card in a NetVista is separate from the motherboard?\302\240 And if I need to replace it, what would I replace it with?\015\012\015\012Thanks,\015\012McTrace\015

Answers :

With the information I gathered IBM netvista does not features a video\015\012card, it is inbuilt. So it shares your system memory. just open the\015\012sysyetm chassis and take out the RAM module and clean the contact edge\015\012with a rubber eraser (pencil eraser). Re insert the RAM module and try\015\012again.

\015\012If the problem persists. try changing your memeory module(s).
