Question about PC Laptops
Thank you for your response to my request for assistance troubleshooting
my IBM Thinkpad monitor problem. Saturday the monitor completely ceased to function. The monitor displayed various shifting patterns with no recognizable icons or letters. But today, Sunday, it is operating again but the lines are still present. In response to your comment I checked safe mode and the monitor does not display the gridlines. It is somewhat difficult
to tell when in safe mode because the resolution is reduced. But it is certainly not as prominent as it is in normal operation.
Again thanks for your input.
I was running multiple CPU intensive applications. Computer threw exception and blue screen emerged with memory dump message.
Next time I tried to start laptop,screen would only display series of fine horizontal and verticalgridlines. I started in safe mode and removed some of the music filesfrom my computer since it appeared I only had about a 1G of free memoryleft on the laptop. I now have 2G free. I restarted the computer andstill had gridlines. This morning I started the laptop and thegridlines appeared but this time the windows logon appeared and thestandard screen eventually displayed. But the problem is that thegridlines are now present with the normal screen. It is on the edges ofthe display screen and on various icons. How can I troubleshoot thisproblem?
