Display driver problem

Hello

I'm using Asus laptop and one day it started freezing a lot. (complete freeze where alt+ctrl+del doesn't work)

So when I tried using recovery disk, the laptop completely stopped working after it tried to configure windows for the first time. I tried booting it using usb linux (damn small linux) and found out that i couldn't access any of the hard drive.

So i ran to the store and bought brand new internal hard-driver, same SATA model with slightly higher capacity. (I also added 2G RAM. I checked the compatibility so i doubt this was the problem.) Now I can run vista but the screen is all messed up. (it has purple virtical bars everywhere!)

I tried to install Windows XP instead after this half-successful recovery, it again gave me a "cannot find hard disk" error.

One after another, it failed to detect video card after the reboot.

It doesn't seem like a hard disk failure(since it's brand new) nor the graphic card problem to me. is there anything more I can try?

    actually since I changed my hard disk, I don't have recovery point before the problem. My old hard disk which came with laptop doesn't work at all anymore.

sounds lile your Windows operating system or hard drive has become corrupted or damaged. Try to repair Windows or reinstall it using an external optical drive and your Windows CD or restore/recovery CD. If might also be necessary to fully reformat the hard drive and reinstall Windows. If that still fails, it might indicate a failing hard drive

Left alt key not functioning in pagemaker


Hello,

If you cannot access your Task Manager when Pressing the Ctrl+Alt+Del, this means you have a virus on your system which has disabled the task manager. If you have a good antivirus like Norton, Kaspersky or McAfee try scanning to detect the virus.

OR

Format your system, but before doing that makesure you backup your data before doing that.

Keeps freezing


starting the machine without a power cable isnt bad, especially since its a laptop and is made to run on battery power. as for the freezing, if it was dropped alot then something could have come loose meaning it mite not be covered under warrenty. i would just try to get it fixed at the place it was purchased at.
