Make sure you have installed your video drivers, then go to your control panel/display to change the refresh rate of the screen to 75 or greater that your monitor is capable of.

Video is sporadic. Will work at first but if any


This Presario uses the 256 MB dedicated ATI Mobility Radeon X600 Video Display card according to the manufacture's website. Also this system came from HP with Windows XP or Windows Vista.

This may be a driver issue. Dealing with video driver issues can be difficult, but there are tools that can help.

If you are using Windows, boot into Safe Mode by pressing the "F8" key during initial startup. You will be presented with the option screen with many choices. Pick Safe Mode without networking.

After a second, Windows will boot into Safe Mode. From there go to the Control Panel and then to Add Remove Programs (XP) or Programs (Vista & Windows 7). Find the program(s) from ATI including

- ATI Software Uninstall Utility
- ATI Catalyst Control Center
- ATI Display Driver

These may prompt you to reboot after each removal, please select a manual reboot, or reboot at a later time.

Once all the ATI items have been removed, restart the computer. The system will reboot and it will load a generic driver. The screen may look different as the resolution has changed. This is normal.

Go to Softpedia and download Driver Cleaner to finish removing the drivers as they are still cached in the system. The link is here at http://drivers.softpedia.com/get/Other-DRIVERS-TOOLS/Others/Driver-Cleaner-Professional-15.shtml

Install and run this tool to finish the removal of the cached ATI Driver files. The screen may flicker, this is normal.

After completing the installation, restart the machine again.

When the reboot has completed go to ATI to obtain the latest driver here at:

NOTE: If you are using Vista, please make sure to obtain the correct driver for the 32 bit or 64 bit operating systems. This information can be found by right clicking on "Computer" in the Start Menu, then selecting "Properties". Once this is up there will be displayed the related information on your system. Look specifically for "System Type" and it will read "32-bit Operating System" or "64-bit Operating System"

(Windows XP) http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/Legacy/Pages/radeonaiw_xp.aspx?type=2.4.1&product=2.4.1.3.19&lang=English

(Vista 32 Bit)
http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/Legacy/Pages/radeonaiw_vista32.aspx?type=2.4.1&product=2.4.1.3.19&lang=English

(Vista 64 Bit)
http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/Legacy/Pages/radeonaiw_vista64.aspx?type=2.4.1&product=2.4.1.3.19&lang=English

Select the Catalyst Software Suite. It is a large file and will require time to down load. Save the file to the computer. Once you have it you will need to run it. Installation will run then ask to reboot.

Reboot your system.

You may notice again the screen flickers. This is normal and the machine may also be slow for the first few mins after reboot. After a few minuets have passed you can adjust the screen resolution by right clicking on empty space on the desktop and selecting "Properties" (XP), then the "Settings" tab or "Screen Resolution" (Vista). The factory specs for the Presario are WXGA+ (1440x900) max resolution.

After adjusting resolution I suggest going to getting the latest version of DirectX (DX 9c Feb 2010) from Microsoft here at http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?FamilyId=2DA43D38-DB71-4C1B-BC6A-9B6652CD92A3&displaylang=en

This may also be a large file depending on what the installer needs and will require time to download.

This should complete the driver installation.

The Driver Cleaner tool can be removed now form the computer.

Upgrade RAM on Windows Vista PC 32 bit


The repair function is on your Windows Vista Installation DVD. Put it in your computer and restart. It should boot the DVD. Next, you will see after clicking install Windows, a button in the corner of the screen that says repair. Choose that, and follow the instructions. Good luck!

Screen is blinking very frequently


Hello, this is a known problem with the model of that laptop. You will also notice in safe mode your screen will not flicker but in normal mode it will flicker.
Your laptop should still be under warranty and needs the LCD replaced.
