Question about IBM NetVista PC Desktop

1 Answer

Monitor screen shows all sorts of colors in line patterns.

Anytime I download any new games, or in this case it is Shaw's security system, the system boots up fine, but as you try to access the security system program, it will start up but then the screen goes into these line patterns and your pretty much doomed until you hard boot.

Could this be the video card?  If so, can you tell me if the video card in a NetVista is separate from the motherboard?  And if I need to replace it, what would I replace it with?

With the information I gathered IBM netvista does not features a video card, it is inbuilt. So it shares your system memory. just open the sysyetm chassis and take out the RAM module and clean the contact edge with a rubber eraser (pencil eraser). Re insert the RAM module and try again.

If the problem persists. try changing your memeory module(s).

How do I adjust color on my Sony tv with Shaw universal remote?

Take your Shaw remote control, and follow the instructions on the back. If that does not work, telephone Shaw, and ask for technical support for TV.
Once it is setup, press the TV button on the Shaw remote control, and press the MENU button. That should show the TV's "setup" menu.

Monitor colors suddenly changed

If you can't adjust the color settings, using the control panel (buttons) of the monitor, it's physical/internal faulty. In most cases this can't be repaired. But I would suggest you to try (repair), if there's only a short circuit or loose connection, it'll be easily fixed.
Good luck.
Thanks for using FixYa.

My screen has shrunk, there is a black frame around it that i cant get rid of. Iv tried changing the resolution and re-starting my computer nothong has helped

Use the OSD (On Screen Display) controls on your monitor to change the "vertical-size' and "horizontal-size" of your picture.

Then, try a different monitor, to see if your monitor is the problem, or if your video-card is the problem.

I have vertical colorful lines on the screen just got a new computer with windows vista

the monitor is bad if your getting vertical lines on it. Anytime you get vertical lines on any monitor, LCD, laptop LCD, etc, then that means the screen is bad.

Your monitor needs to be replaced.

ViewSonc VX924 LCD Monitor

Check the information at Viewsonic's website regarding their warranty:

If you have your proof-of-purchase and it shows the monitor is less than a year old, it would be covered. You would need to follow the procedure on their website to have the unit repaired or replaced, but it would not be your job to try to fix it.

Texture malfunction?

You said these didn't fix the problems for "very long," so it sounds like something might be overheating. It could be the card, or possibly your monitor. I would download a program to run diagnostics on the card to specifically check the temperature of the card itself. Perhaps the fan/heatsink needs to be refitted or a better cooling solution for the card.
