This is the problem with display memory which is on the vedio card or on the motherboard. you may try
1) change RAM memory on the motherboard and test, go next if not solve.
2) install the new vedio card (AGP OR PCI) if build-in vedio used before test again
3) change a vedio card if the vedio card(AGP or PCI) installed before

Gx620 boots up, then screen goes blank, reboot gives blank screen with cursor blinking. will boot with cd but still shuts down after a minute or two.


Remove the battery and open the case. Look inside the computer with a flashlight to see if any of the capacitors are busted or leaking from corrosion. The capacitors look like little battery towers, but they are not as tall as the AA or AAA batteries.

If the capacitors are bad, your computer goes bunkers.

How to disable on board sound


During the boot process press F2 in order to get into the bios settings. Here you will find "Integrated Devices" select this line with the cursor keys (up and down) and press enter (or spacebar).
On the new panel locate the option "sound". It must be marked as ON state. With the cursor keys (left and right) or + / - change the state at OFF. Press escape to exit from this pane, and escape again to exit the bios. At the prompt panel that appears select "save changes and exit" and press enter. Your Dell is going to reboot now with the internal sound card in disabled state.

What video driver do you use in Acer Aspire SA80 with SiS FX/GX Mirage Graphics


The SiS driver that Acer offers for the Aspire SA80,

http://support.acer.com/drivers_download.aspx

On this page under,

A) Select Product Family
Left-click on Desktop

B) Select Product Line
Left-click on Aspire

C) Select Product Model
Scroll the side bar down, Left-click on Aspire SA80

There are Three VGA drivers listed. You won't see the 3rd one, SiS, until you scroll the side bar down.

VGA SIS VGA Driver 6.14.10.3680
14.6MB 2008/12/10

Left-click on the orange square to the left of this driver file name.
(Has a white down arrow pointing to a line)

A small window will come up.
Opening VGA_SIS_6.14.10.3680_Xpx86.zip

Left-click on the empty circle to the left of - Save File
(If it does not already have a green dot in it)

Now go below, and click on OK.

I suggest you save the file, instead of opening it directly. It is a Zip file, and you may not have an Unzip program on your computer, to 'Unzip' it.

(Zip file is a condensed file. Used to send large files over the internet. You have to un-condense the file, or Unzip it)

If you do not have an unzip program I suggest download 7-Zip. It's free.

Go to the place the Zip file downloaded to.
Either My Documents, or on your desktop screen.
(Start>My Documents. Could also be in a sub-folder of My Documents>Downloads)

Double-click on the file name. (Be sure you have an Unzip program installed before you do)

Follow the simple instructions of the unzip program.

Immediately upon boot, vertical lines appear on screen. After several minutes the screen turns pick and the windows cursor appears. there is no further change in the display. Mouse appears to work. Not...


My first check would be video drivers if this is a newly built computer. If it is a computer that has been running a while and the problem suddenly appeared I would reseat the RAM and attempt to boot into safe mode, suspecting a virus infection.

Computer only displays vertical lines and pink background.


Most likely an issue with the Video Card or Video driver.
* Boot to safe mode by tapping F8 while starting up the computer. Selected safe mode with the keyboard and hit enter. Login to your user account. You should see the words “Safe Mode” on all four corners,
* Open device manager – Right click “My Computer” – Select “Manage” – Selected device manager from the left. Under display driver, you should see your vide card listed. Right click on it and select “Disable”.
Now restart your computer and if this resolves the issue, then the vide card may be at fault. You could also try updating the video driver.
Do let me know if you get this far.
