    ¿Ha comprobado usted que todos sus choferes sean modernos para la tarjeta de gráficos y el dispositivo de audio?

  • Debs
    Debs Nov 15, 2008

    okay, I will write in English if it is easier. If you have checked that all of the chipset drivers are up to date that came with the motherboard then it may not be a graphics or audio error.

    Sometimes when laptops freeze randomly it can be caused by too many programs running at the same time. Look in the system tray for background programs that are running and if you do not need them to run then right click them and exit them.

  • Debs
    Debs Nov 15, 2008

    Check that you have the latest drivers for your graphics card first and make sure that it is running with no problems. You may also need to have the latest version of directx for your version of windows.

    what version of windows are you using and i will tell you how to check your graphics is running correctly and how to check your directx?

  • Debs
    Debs Nov 15, 2008

    If you need to check your ram then go to control panel and double click on system, this will show you your version of windows and the amount of ram that you have. (if using xp) if you are using vista then go to start>all programs>accessories>system tools>system information, and it will show you everything about your system that you need to know

    If you want to check your grahics is working in 3d correctly then go to Start>all programs>accessories and double click on run. Type in dxdiag and click ok. This will open up directx and let you do some display and audio checks.

    Make sure that you have at least version 9 for your direct x

  • Debs
    Debs Nov 15, 2008

    did you load nvidia drivers for your graphics or just windows drivers?

  • Debs
    Debs Nov 15, 2008

    sorry i was thinking vista when i was directing you to 'run'

    Go to then to right there is the program called 'run' just below 'search'

  • Debs
    Debs Nov 15, 2008

    okay run the dxdiag first to see which version that you have.

    I have just posted where to go to do this. go to start then there is a program called 'run' just on the right below search

    I will check for updated drivers for your nvidia and will get back to you in a minute

  • Debs
    Debs Nov 15, 2008

    go here to download updated drivers for your graphics card. Download them then double click on install and it will take you through a program while it checks and updates your driver. It will reboot and when your computer comes back on hopefully it will work much more efficiently.

    What verion of direct x did you have? some graphics cards espcially the one you have will require direct x 9. do you have this?

  • Debs
    Debs Nov 15, 2008

    Okay no problem.

  • Debs
    Debs Nov 15, 2008

    i can not understand why that will happen if your card is geforce 7300 like you said, because the driver I guided you to is the updated on for xp for that card.

    Have you made sure that there is no problems with the card?

    Go to control panel>system>hardware>device manager and see if the graphics card is displayed, click on the + sign next to it and write down the exact model etc... and get back to me, if it has a yellow exclamation mark next to it then you have problems with the card.

  • Debs
    Debs Nov 15, 2008

    Did you run the dxdiag?

  • Debs
    Debs Nov 15, 2008

    try disabling the bluetooth and try to run a dvd again

  • Debs
    Debs Nov 16, 2008

    I am off to bed now but will check in again with you tomorrow.

    1) Check that there is no yellow exclamtation marks next to any devices in the device manager.

    2) Update you sound card drivers by right clicking on the sound device go to properties and click on update driver, if asked if it can go on the internet to check say yes

    3) Try starting your computer in safe mode to see if the graphics work better, if they do then you definatley have graphic card issues

    4) Try downloading driver detective and run a scan on your computer, it will tell you what drives need updating and what drivers are out of date and what devices have no drivers installed. Go here to download it.

    I will check back with you tomorrow, good luck, I hope I have been of some assistance.


  • Debs
    Debs Nov 16, 2008

    how did you get on?

  • Debs
    Debs Nov 16, 2008

    When you started in safe mode you said everything was normal. Do you mean that the problems you were/are having went away when you were in safe mode or did you still have the same problem even in safe mode?

  • Debs
    Debs Nov 16, 2008

    If your computer ran normally in safe mode then your graphics has problems and will need to be addressed.

    To make sure that your computer is using your graphics card please right click on the desktop and go to properties>settings>advanced>adapter and check that your nvidia graphics is on display there.

    If it is, click on list all modes

    Select maximum mode that your card will accept.

    Click ok

    Also check that your screen resolution is set correctly and not to low you can do this by checking the display properties when you right click on the desktop and select properties.

  • Debs
    Debs Nov 16, 2008

    Is your graphics card displayed when you checked the desktop properties etc.. like I asked?

    The safe mode I was talking about was just normal safe mode, safe mode on its own.

  • Debs
    Debs Nov 16, 2008

    sorry I should have said this before, you need to have the computer running in normal mode to change anything in the graphics, resolution, refresh modes etc....

    How do i change language from spanish to english

    This question is a bit broad, if you are looking to change the language that the keyboard types in you would go to "start" > "Control Panel" > (From this point the option itself may vary in exact name depending on your operating system) "Change Keyboard / Region Settings"

    If you go under region / language you should be able to set everything to english. If however you purchased the computer in a spanish region and spanish is the primary language on the computer, you may have to upgrade your operating system to the "Ultimate" version of whatever windows you may have. From there you can install the language pack that will reset the computer to english.

    How do you change English to Spanish on a Windows 7 computer...welcome screen & everything in it possible?

    It depends a bit on your installation but you should be able to do this. First install the language if you need to. (Win7 Ultimate and Enterprise allow for Multiuser User Interface Pack; All other versions use Language Interface Pack and you must install the Parent language. and search for the appropriate pack.) The LIP doesn't translate everything. Then in the Control Panel, click Clock, Region and Language. Then click Region and Language, the Keyboard tab will let you change the keyboard language and the Administrative tab will let you change the System Locale. Once you install the additional language, you'll also see a tab for Display Language. Set this to Spanish.
    Hot keys are also available for switching on the fly once the language is installed. The Welcome Screen will get a Keyboard Layout button when more than one language is installed to switch languages then. (This can be locked for some users so see the Windows Help to find more information. It's still in the Region and Language section.)

    If you only want the Spanish, consider reinstalling the OS with an international (or whatever MS calls it) version of the OS.

    I hope this helps.
