Having problems with your Toshiba Satellite Pro A210-EZ2203X Notebook ?

Strange snowy specks on Screen

\015 Hi, this is my first time posting here and I have a bit of a problem. I've noticed it recently when I started seriously multitasking but noticed it immediately when I decided to play second life. Everytime I have something multimedia (like BSplayer or some sort of game runnning) I have these strange specks that look like snow you'd see on TV on my monitor. Sometimes if I minimize the window and maximize it again, it goes away but now it's happening with more frequency until I have to restart my computer. It covers everything and it seems as like it freezes a partial screen or something. I've updated drivers and bios but the problem continues. Any ideas on how to fix? Thanks!\015

Answers :

If you have a known brand name video adapter, you can attempt to update from their site rather then the Toshiba Site, but I cannot guarantee that it will work since laptop graphics chips have custom drivers made that will not work with generic drivers
