Your graphics card is going out. You need to replace your graphics card. If your card is a dedicated one, you can probably just have the card replacced. If it is an embedded one, then you will have to get a whole new screen.

I have a CQ56 compaq and do not know which type of screen to order a matte or a glossy screen.


The Two Kinds of LCD Monitors lens1946174_1208282041macbook-matte-screen1.jpg There are two kinds of modern LCD screens: matte (anti-glare) and glossy. Both have their pros and cons and are a subject of many discussions.

Matte screens don't get glare or reflections on them; however, the same rough surface (polarizer) that reduces the intensity of reflected light results in less contrast and brightness since the light from the LCD screen passes through it. Matte screens diffuse light instead of reflecting it so they might be easier to read outdoors, if the backlight provides enough brightness. You don't have to worry as much about reflections as with a glossy screen.

Glossy screens have vibrant colors and the highest contrast and brightness because they have a smooth, high-gloss surface. As a result, it is often the choice for movies or gaming. However, strong lighting causes glare on these screens which is very annoying and may tire your eyes if you have to stare at it all the time. You can also see reflections on the screen. Some graphics designers may also find the colors inaccurate. Glossy will work great for you if the lighting in your room doesn't create any glare on the screen.

10 Power Tips for Presentations with Computer Projection


When was the last time you sat through a terrible presentation using computer projection? When was the last time you gave one? If you want to avoid disaster and give your career a boost then apply these ten tips the next time you present with the computer projector. And if you want to do a friend a favour then slide them a copy of these tips before their next presentation.

The biggest mistake is to believe that cool graphics will make up for your lack of presentation skills. If you can not cook - it does not matter how good the stove is. Use these tips to develop your presentation skills and work with the tools. The computer is only a tool. You are the presenter. When you present with multi-media you are more than a performer. You are a producer. Be aware and stay in control of what you and your technology are doing to the audience.

1. Stand on the left side as the audience sees you. Because we read from left to right your audience can look at you then follow your gesture to the screen. Their eyes are comfortably moving left to right, they read the text then they return to you. If you stood on the right side their eyes have to make too many movements to read the slides and watch you. If you present using Hebrew, (read right to left), stand on the right side of the screen. If you present using old Chinese, (top to bottom), climb on top of the screen, (just kidding).

2. You are the show. Be heard and be seen. Stand away from the computer and in the light. Use a remote mouse to get away from the computer. Too many people hide in the dark behind the laptop. Arrange the lighting in the room so that you are in the light while the screen is dark. You might need to unscrew some of the ceiling lights to get it right.

3. Turn off the screen savers on your computer - any that are part of the Windows software - plus the one that comes with the laptop. It is embarrassing for you to be talking about important points you thought were on the screen while they are looking at flying toasters or Bart Simpson. It is even worse when your energy saver kicks in and shuts it all down. Remember to adjust this as well.

4. Learn how to use the switch that toggles both screens on. Often this is a function key. This toggle controls whether your laptop or projector - or both are on. You want both on so you can look at the laptop while the audience watches the same image behind you on the screen. Occasionally glance quickly at the screen just to check. But put your laptop between you and the audience so you can be looking at your audience while speaking.

5. Colours appear differently on the projector, the laptop, and the desktop where you designed it. If the exact colour is important, (perhaps for a company logo), test and adjust the colour ahead of time.

6. Keep it simple with the colours and special effects. Use no more than six colours on a slide. Use slide transitions and builds to entertain without detracting from your message. Effects like partial build reveals one point at a time allowing your audience to stay right with you.

7. Motion attracts their eyes. Gesture to the screen when you want them to look there. Use moving text to grab attention. Stand still when you want them to look at the screen. Move when you want to capture their attention again.

8. Test your slides for size and readability by standing six feet away from the monitor. If you can read the monitor then your audience will likely be able to read the screen. If they can not comfortably see and read your screen all you did was to annoy them.

9. Arrive early and test everything. Re-read this line - again!

10. Murphy loves technology. Be prepared with backup files, an extra power source for the laptop and projector and spare batteries for your remote mouse. It only takes one little thing to spoil it. Be prepared to give your presentation without the hardware.

Bonus TIP: People buy you - not your technology. You are always selling yourself - don't get lost in the technology.

When I take pictures now with my A85 the tint is green, my pictures have more of a green tint. is there a way of adjusting the color.


Sounds like the camera was adjusted for flourescent lighting. The PowerShot should have a menu with various Lighting scenarios such as natural, outdoor, nighttime, sepia, etc. I would check this first. It should be easy to find. If you can't adjust the color properly with these pre-set options, there may be an RGB adjuster although I doubt it. You can certainly use a photo editor on your computer easily as well to adjust the color balance easily. If you don't use Photoshop there are free online photo editors such as http://www.gimp.org. You want to look for Color Balance and an RGB slide bar, it is quite fun to play around with.

How do you switch off the computer................have pulled out the power connector and cut off the power button but there is still a light flashing and the battery will go low.


Hi Thanks for your question.

I suggest you can try and take the battery out from your laptop. This is easily done by moving two sliding catches and pulling battery out. Battery is located on the bottom part of laptop near the screen. Good Luck and please don't hesitate to ask more questions if this is needed.
Thank You for using FixYa

I can turn power on and i will get sound but no picture. I can get different channels up & down with sound only ,but no picture. It seems that the picture has totally failed as there is no on screen...


This can be caused by a main board failure or a t-con board failure. There is a fuse on the t-con that fails but it is not the standard looking fuse. It is an extremely small, surface mounted component fuse. You have to know what you're looking for to find it. It can be bypassed momentarily and if the picture comes back then the t-con is the problem for sure. You really ought to take it to a shop as this is not something that is easily diagnosed at home.

Laptop Screen No Showing any Light But Computer Boots and passes


Replace the backlight inverter of your screen.
There is no way you can do it yourself if you don't have the knowledge and the right tools for opening the backcover of your laptop..It is way too risky to do that not to mention the availability of parts (with same value) that you will be replacing.

My suggestion is to let your laptop handle by a certified technician..if there is still warranty good for you..

I have an IBM thinkpad T20 running windows 2000. The computer is on and booted up but the monitor is not lighting up. It is running on 256mb ram and I was getting a lot of virtual memory is low warnings...


To determine if the laptop has a problem with the inverter of low virtual memory issues, plug an external monitor in to the laptop and you can change the virtual memory by following these instructions, right click on my computer, select properties, then select advanced, click on virtual memory and change the settings to system detemined, save settings and reboot the laptop without the external monitor to see if it is virtual memory or inverter.
Please keep me informed
