Sounds like the video ram may be bad. Does your PC have built in video or a video adapter in the PCI or AGP slot? If it has an adapter, power off your PC and reseat the video board
and while you have the cover open, reseat the memory also.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

I’m happy to assist further over the phone at

I want to delete a video clip which is downloaded by realplayer. But i am when i try to delete the video clip it shows - ' cannot delete : Access is denied Make sure the disk is not full or...

Do a search for the clip using windows. Once you find it. Right click on it and click properties. Look to see if it is marked as archive or read only. Uncheck the boxes. Then try and delete it. Make sure Real Player isn't running. You may have to log into administrator. Doubt it though. If it still won't delete. More than likely virus, or trojan, or ???
Hit cntrl+alt+del then start task monitor. see if it is running in processes. If so click on stop process. If that don't work, then search for Msconfig. Go to startup tab. See if it is in start up. If so uncheck it. Restart computer then start all over.
You will still have to open Real Player and delete the shortcut after you delete the video.

Good Luck

HP pavilion jDv2915 laptop screen is not showing anything on the screen except for red and blue colours and lines , no matter what keys i press . it sometimes goes to normal when i press cntrl + alt+ del ...

It looks like a virus attack which is eating up your RAM memory since it sometimes comes back to normal on pressing cntrl+alt+del. It should open the task manager. Check what applications & processes are running. Run a thorough virus scan & see if solves the problem. If the laptop cannot be kept on during this scanning process I am afraid you will have to go to a authorized service center.

My computer says disk read error press cntrl alt then nada

In most cases, all recent versions of Windows use Ctrl+Alt+Del to bring up the Tasm Manager. You can't usually use that key combo to restart your PC.
When you did that, was any application highlighted as 'not responding?' If so, that is where you should start looking for problems.
Otherwise, try to post additional information for us here.

Possibly have you tried to start in safe mode? Are you running Windows 7, Vista, or XP? If you can try to boot into safe mode to see if you can access your desktop from their. Once in Windows try to perform a system restore going back to the point to which you last could start your machine normally.

What have you gone through in the setup option? Have you tried the safe mode?

Go into safe mode and restore your system settings. Go to the Start menu, All Programs, Accessories, and System Tools, then System Restore. go through the wizard and pick a point in time before your computer crashed.

If you have any other problems, let me know.

Veiwsonic VA2026w. Yellow tint down R/h of display.

Which OS are you running?
Try this, after staring your PC press CNTRL-ALT-Delete and go to the processe TAB. Check if you see EHTRAY.EXE running.If so kill it and see if the yellow line disappears. ehtray.exe is part Mediaplayer and runs on startup, sometimes causing strange things.

You can remove it from the registry safely but if youé not familiar with the registry don't do it because 1 error might mess up your PC.
