Blank screen when moving windows

I have a few stability issues within windows but otherwise it works quite well. Specifically: 1) When I move windows around, or scroll the contents of windows (basically anything that requires changing the screen) I frequently (every 10-30 seconds) get a blank screen for up to a second and then it works. It does not hang, or otherwise interfere with my work. The GPU temperature as reported by the Advanced Settings is around 40C so it does not look like an overheating issue. 2) Sometimes my machine hangs (possibly due to a graphics card issue, as the screen often gets corrupted before the hang) and when I reboot into windows it hands with vertical blue lines across the screen. I then have to turn the machine off, wait a while, turn it back on. I then get asked whether I want to go into safe mode, I select normal mode and start windows up, at which point it complains about display settings (I presume that is because it has reduced the settings because it failed to start windows previously). I ignore those, shutdown and the reboot my machine at which point it is ok. Machine is as follows: Windows 98 SE MSI-6340 motherboard. 256MB memory. AMD Athlon 1000MHz

I have a nVidia Quadro2 MXR/EX video card which works fine on the analog input but when you use the digital input the screen sometimes flashed at startup and then goes blank. If you move the mouse,...

There are a few things that come to mind here. Number one is to try a different and known functioning DVI cable. Maybe see if you can recreate the problem simply by wiggling the dvi cable. If there are any splitters/adapters, remove them and plug the cable straight from the video card to the display. Make sure the display is set to digital input mode. When you are using the digital cable, make sure to completely remove the analog cable. See if this problem happens outside the operating system (such as in the system bios, if it does, this indicates a hardware issue). Finally, the digital input on the monitor could be having an issue, try a different monitor or try this monitor with digital input from another system.

Second display shows only blue blank screen but I can see the pointer

This is an extended display. You can move open windows, icons, or folders over to the second screen. This is called a dual-monitor setup. You can also set the second monitor to duplicate what your primary monitor is showing.

I saw window loading (Vista) on ACER Aspire 8730-6918 but after boot up the screen is blank. I can move the curser point on the screen but nothing display.

This is a known issue with initial releases of Windows Vista. If you have a Windows Vista DVD ROM you can boot your laptop with it and choose to repair Windows.

If chkdisk or repair is not helpful then unfortunately, there is no other repair procedure.

You will have to manually back-up your data by removing the hard drive and connecting it to another computer. After that, format the hard drive and reinstall Vista.

Remember to install latest service packs and updates from Microsoft download center.

you'll have to drag them windowed to your 2nd monitor. Windows automatically will use your primary monitor unless you use software to control where which programs will load.

A good program to use is called Ultramon.

System freezes or screen goes blank

1. reset all bios to std
2. try one peice of ram at a time to see if occurs with each module
3. try new ram
4. update your bios (can also fix minor issues with windows)

colourfull post screens are usually a sign of dodgy ram

hope this helps

No input signal

Check connections, Hertz rate, and settings (if you can read them). Otherwise, it may be time to whip out the cash and get a new monitor and/or computer.
