Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional

1 Answer

My screen randomly blacks out.

I have some other problems associated with the screen blacking out after I've typed in my password on the welcome screen and entered it. It then brings me to my account, but if I don't start clicking on icons (I usually click on Mozilla Firefox) to get the computer going, the screen blacks out on me. Why does this happen?It's not a hibernation problem, I don't think, because I've set up the power options so that the computer hibernates after 15 min of idleness, but I haven't even been on the computer for 15 min, and the computer shuts off. The screen goes black, but the light bulb and battery meter lights are still on green.Another problem I have is that it takes me around 15-20 seconds (sometimes less) each to press the power button so that the computer may shut down/turn on. Also, if I don't pres the button long enough, the computer may not shut down or it doesn't fully turn on. The light bulb would turn green, but the screen remains black. This didn't use to happen. Neither did the black screen coming on now and again. Even as I type this, I'm afraid my computer will black out on me suddenly. This is what basiclly happen's to me but i found this on other forums.. I just thought that you could help its kinda hard to explain but i "DO NOT HAVE" Vista or firefox so cancel that stuff out. And it also happen's when i watch full screen movies, or play full screen games..

I think the problem might be in your laptop screen,did you try to turn it on in different positions,I mean the part between keyboard and screen might be broken.I suggest you first reinstall windows/mac or whatever,then try in different positions(move you'r screen up down),and if nothing work,take it on service :/

Vizio 42" LCD - Random appearance of small black rectangles

There is a processing fault that is starting to occure. What you are seeing is a type of aliasing. This can be in the main signal processing or in one of the control areas.

The set will require service. The service rep will test the set by using board substitution. There are typicaly a number of areas in the TV set that can cause this type of fault. Once the defective board is located the fault will be easy to service with a simple board swap and some adjustments.

If the set is out of warranty, it may be expensive to service. With many of the no-name brands, spare parts can be difficult or impossible to have.
