You know if it's a screen saver or not. It's the graphics card showing possible hardware problem.

My Gateway GT5028 PC Desktop's screen flashes when i am playing starcraft 2. it has a strange smell, and i cleaned the computer recently, what could the problem be?


Depending on whether or not the game is patched it can kill your GPU. The strange smell was probably the card getting very hot. Do you know the model of GPU/Graphics card?

Windows is corrupted - either you have a nasty virus or someone deleted (or uninstalled) some critical files. The best way to solve this is to backup your files and reinstall Windows.

My e machine shuts down unexpectedly.


It could be a virus that your anti viral software isn't picking up. you could try to change your settings so that you boot from a disk and your drives are set as slaves( by changing the jumpers on the back of the drive, all info on a little sticker) and run an updated anti virus program. Also, if it turns out your drives are not going to play and you have a back up of your system, format the drive and start over. hope this helps, if not, sorry ;)

My graphics has just stopped working help please , the pc was working fine on tuesday and wed night when i turned it on there was no graphics . I have an nvidia gx card in it but cant even get anything...


shut down, unplug or turn off power supply switch. if you have internal leds, wait till they're off! open case- remove video card- clean fingers with rubbing alcohol (use q-tips-gently), then, after alcohol evaporates, re-insert card- then, after restoring power, re-boot and try again!!
if this doesn't work, you may have driver problem, or a nasty virus. not a happy prospect! hopefully you have a video alternative, and can still access the internet.
if you have an anti-virus prog., update and run it. if not, try a2- it's free and pretty good. try going to Nvidea and downloading a new set of drivers.
if you have another graphics card, try using that to access the net and repair your nvidia drivers.
good luck!

When i play a Valve Source game (Garry's mod for example) My screen shows a low-res sorta thing. Like the text is realy messed up so i cant read it and i think its my graphics card (damn you virus) and i...


hey
i dont think u can reinstall a graphic card..i mean if its the problem of a virus you will have to scan for the virus ... if your virus scanner is able to detect virus and delete it well and fine ... if not able to delete it go to ur anti virus site and check what needs to be done for a specific virus .. theyll give u exact steps for example :

neways this all will save you from formatting your comp.. if case there are too many viruses or ur anti virus is not able to detect the viruses i would recommend formatting.

And as for counter strike source (valve source is CS source only rite if i am not wrong?) source being a high end game, your grapphic card may not be able to give the reqd support, so i guess try switching to lower resolution, remove extra effects (like make the smoke look bad and decrease gamma, etc) even in the graphic card properties there can be a few changes that can be made to help boost your comps gaming performace for instance , atleast in cs1.6 switching off vertical interlacing (or something vertical something ) increased the fps . so i guess i you should try that also b4 blaming the viruses :P
for further assisstance feel free send a mail @

cheers

My laptop screen wont come on. it occasionally will after i keep trying it but then if it loads it just freezes and has to be restarted or will come up with a virus error then shut down for...


Sounds like a pretty nasty virus infection to me.
Will probably have to format and re-install your operating system. Give make and model of your computer and I'll see if I can find some shortcuts for you, i.e. maybe you have a recovery partition on your computer that will allow the computer to fix itself, but be prepared for a long wait as the computer performs the format and re-install
