Question about Computers & Internet
I have a Gateway E475m laptop. Was recently watching hulu and out of nowhere my computer began making a terrible sound and about 3 columns of horizontal lines appeared across the screen (tv episode still visible in the background). The computer would not shut off via the power button, so I resorted to removing the battery. It seems to be working ok now, but any explanations or assistance would be appreciated. thx, swagirl
It is possible that the video card became unstable. It is possible that the card may be on it's way out; keep an eye out for those lines in the future, if they shoe up again plan on replacing your video card
