Hello, do the garbage shows like some uneven color or splattered color dote or like a tv screen not in tune? If this is it, check your video card reseat or clean. It could also be an overheating problem. If this is not overheating problem. It will come to this, your video card is already failing replace your video card.

Hope it helps

After booting, the Operating system will only have Recylebin(garbage) as default icon. we need to put the other icons like my computer, my documents, mynetwork and others to desktop. you can do this by following steps.

Go to Run type "desk.cpl". Now you will get Display property window, there click on "Desktop " icon. After doing that you can see a "Customize desktop" button there. click on it. now you would able to see "My documents, My computer, my Network Places, Internet Explorer" beside all this icon will be able to see small square box. you need to click on the boxes. By clicking those boxes, you would get them on your desktop.

Samsung laptop screen shows garbage r540

if it's something that occurs with movement, and you had you screen previously replaced i would suspect that the screen cable clip is loose, try re-seating the cable in the back of screen and securing it with some tape to ensure that that it remains clipped in place, i think that this us most likely the issue.

As for the ATI driver i sometimes see that occuring, try updating the drivers.

Try booting in safe mode - as the PC starts TAP F8 a menu should appear - choose "safe Mode" - if that works - then try a restore to a date before the problem start>programs>accessories>system tools>system restore - choose date before the issue
if that does not work - post back if you can get into safe mode or not IF so we can try a clean boot - if not we can try getting your data off and a factory reset

Garbage video on display on boot up

Sounds like your notebook video card is bad. It drives both the LCD panel and external displays. You'll need to replace it.

BSoD, Garbled Screen, Boot Failure.

If you are getting garbage on the screen before windows tries to load the laptop probably has a bad motherboard.

It's possibly only the video output is going bad on it, try hooking it to an external monitor and see if you get the same weird stuff on that screen.

Good luck, let me know how it goes
