Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite A135 Notebook ?

Monitor turns off and on during video game play.

\015 I have a laptop i use to play games on, when i'm playing WoW or any kind of game the monitor shuts off and then automatically turns on again. When I get off the game from frustration of it doing that, a bubble pops up on the bottom of the screen saying 'Display Drive Fail'. I have windows vista. Any Help?\015

Answers :

My recommendation would be to check to see if there are any updates for your laptop regarding video driver. IF not you can just try to reinstall video driver. If that doesn't work you can take your restore CD that came with laptop and do a complete re-install of the operating systen. Be sure to back up any important data as all programs and data will be deleted when you use the restore CD.
