My VGA has been corrupted. How can I fix it?


Hi , I suggest to check for any thermal issues including condition of the video card fan / heat sinks ie dust ,
If supported you can run a LINUX disk like Ubuntu in live / try mode
If video works ok , then most likely a Windows environment incl hardware conflict or virus / driver corruption issue ,
but if not then most likely a video card hardware issue like bad card cooling fan or excessive dust - thermal shedding issue or card bios/chipset fault

If a likely software issue then uninstall and then reinstall the video card
Consult ASUS or Nvidia support

The procedure is something like this
Onboard video support ?
yes
uninstall the video card driver and any video vendor configuration applets
Uninstall video card in device manager if still present.
Shut down and remove mains power cable
remove the hardware video card ,
(using anti static electricity procedures)
Attach onboard video to display
Power up and enter and configure BIOS setup if required, ie 1st seek onboard video
Bootup to Windows
Install the onboard video device
using Windows plug&play default driver executed during booting
Restart
Confirm working ok
Update the chipset driver (inf) if applicable,
restart
Shutdown
Reinstall the hardware video card
Attach to display
Reconfig BIOS setup if required
Start to install default driver
Install video driver / update from card default using a known good driver whose setup file has been previously downloaded
restart and test

Hope this helps

Acer Aspire T180 - Very Slow Boot to Post Screen


You can run drive diagnostics to test RAM and hard drive, but I would guess that it's a peripheral of some type (I wouldn't think it would be a hard drive or memory problem since your PC runs well in windows). Since the system will eventually time-out trying to initialize a device, it would explain your symptoms. I would unplug your CD drives one at a time (with the system off) and reboot. If you have an onboard card reader, try that next. Printers, headphones, webcams, or any other USB devices can also cause problems.
Once you isolate the offending device, you can try to update your BIOS since some bios updates will address this type of issue. I am not sure if Acer offers BIOS updates, but you could always ask their tech support.
Regardless of the device, it could be an incompatible or failing device. Printers always seem to have updated drivers, so you could check with the manufacturer regarding that.
Otherwise, I would replace the device and test again.
Good Luck!

The computer on some games will get a fuzzing sound in the speakers about 2 sec before the computer crashes and somtimes in games will lag a bit even on lowest settings.


Test your PSU or replace it if your power supply units fan is not working your PSU is faulty

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them they could be faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they could be faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error if this fails to fix the problem
another possible reason could be a memory dump you might be running to many programs at the one time placing to much strain on the CPU also you might not have enough RAM random access memory to check what is running when your computer is running scroll to the bottom toolbar right click select task manager applications and processes if you see something you dont need running select end now to check how much ram you have click start right click on my computer select properties you will see all of your computers details another way to check how much RAM you have click start all programs accessories system tools system imformation all of your computers imformation will be there try uninstalling a few unnecessary programs then click start run type cmd then type chkdsk/r/f which will scan for and attempt to fix any bad sectors and automatically fix any corrupt files on your hard drive this will schedule on a restart don

1 GB of ram? Check the software for minimum PC system requirements.It will say how many MHz is necessary to play the game.It will also give you what video card (min),RAM(min),DirectX (7 or Higher?) this game requires MINIMUM to run.Quite often the game will run,but poorly.Your AMD 2200 runs at 1800 which isn't lightening fast,but sufficient.I think the addition of at least 1 more GB of RAM is what you need,a total of 3GB would really make the computer happy when playing games.
http://oca.microsoft.com/en/windiag.asp
Run this program from Microsoft to test your current memory for errors.
My computer is much like yours,I have XP Media-The 8600 card,a dual core 2.8 processor and 3GB of RAM.This setup will run a online racing game without hick ups at 1152 x 864 resolution.When I only had 1GB of RAM it would stutter like it was constantly trying to load the program,so I added another Gig and it started playing allot better.It couldn't keep up with Halo online until I added another 1GB for a total of 3GB.I am using a 32x version of XP,going to a 64x setup would improve performance even more.
Sorry,I'm talking too much.Try the RAM after you test what you have,you'll be glad you did!

My pc screen goes black interrmittently


Hi Linda,

It is possible you got some flaky RAM.

There is a way to test it , but I would try a couple of things first.

Download the latest drivers for your video card.

http://www.nvidia.com/object/winxp_175.19_whql.html

Check to see if your page file too small.

  1. Click Start then right-click on My Computer and click Properties.
  2. On the Advanced tab in the Performance section, click on the Settings button.
  3. Click the Advanced tab (yes, another Advanced tab) and under the Virtual memory section, click on the Change button.
  4. We'll want to delete the current page file, so select the No paging file radio button and click Set. Ignore any warning that may pop up.
  5. Then select the Custom size radio button and use 3072 for Initial size (MB) and 6144 for Maximum size (MB) and click Set again.
If you want to test the RAM go here.

http://www.memtest86.com/

Dont buy anything, just click download on the right.

Click on >> ISO image for creating bootable CD (Windows - zip)

If you dont have burning software that will burn an ISO go here

http://www.deepburner.com/?r=download

Burn it to CD and boot from it .

You will have to enable tha in BIOS , when your PC starts it will say press F1 or DEL to enter setup , then there will be a menu that says BOOT , change it to boot off CD first and rboot with the CD in the drive. When it boots hit 1 and let it run its test.

That can take a while so you might want to do it before you go to bed.

It is unlikely that anything happened to the video card in the shop. But I think its a little extreme for them to want you to reload windows. They should have tested it before it left the shop.

The restore failed because of the hardware change. That wouldnt have done much anyway.

You didnt specify what make of PC you have , but there may be some updated chipset (motherboard) drivers that may help as well.

Good luck.

Computer freezes up


Ok so i'm going to probably get flamed for my suggestion here, but bear with me.

  1. Take out the new fx5200 video graphics card and reboot the computer. If the freezing stops, then the card itself is most likely faulty or incompatable with your particular PC, or may also simply have a fault in it.
  2. Computers that ran fine before a new piece of hardware/software was installed, can nearly always be blamed on the new device or program. Simple solution is to remove the last thing you added and work backwards from there.
  3. If the freezing still happens, i suggest that you could also have a faulty ram stick, and you can test these with a RAM testing program, but they don't always show errors the first time you run them, so it may take several test runs to show the problem.
  4. An easy solution ( if you think you may have a faulty ram stick or Dimm slot, you can try removing the stick/s from the Dimm slots 1 by 1 until the problem stops, this can mean you have either a bad slot or bad ram stick, either way you should be able to work out what the problem is fairly easily.
  5. The only other problem i know of that causes long freezes or pauses, is not enough ram - or what is called missmatched ram.

I'm not sure if I understand clearly, you are having problems getting the driver cd to install?
Try a manual run by inserting the cd then go to Start>Run- then browse for the drive where the cd is located and then select open, you may need to choose install.exe of there isn't a setup.exe option
