Weird graphics problem

When I am playing online mmorpg my screen will suddenly dissolve into into a mess of small geometrical patterns and freeze. I have to reboot manually. Sometimes it happens every few minutes, sometimes a lot less. I have uninstalled the nvidia drivers and reinstalled them , no change.
Any suggestions?

    Ooooh... This sounds BAD. You have had one HELL of a crash. You need to note the 5 w's. If so, WHO were you playing with? What 1,OS were you running 2, what were playing, 3, what was the state of the external monitor, WHEN did this happen, WHERE did it happen, we cannot ask the what question as we do not know what happened. This is all very puzzling and that but I accept your challenge. I need EVERY detail because I, for one, am NOT one to be messed with when it comes to bad computers. I want the details and I want them soon, if not now. If you miss a detail of any sort, such as what processor do you have to what mouse drivers were you running, I will pest you until I get them. There is nothing I love more than a broken pc to be fixed. Now, I may seem pushy, but that is how you fix a pc.

    There is an issue of trojen or virus so you should clean it up. Secondly, if it take a few minutes and then repeated the same condition, absolutely you need to clean your fan which is not cooling at all. Contact me further more issue or this problem persist.

    Good Luck

    My screen was doing fine and all of sudden it turns into different colors and patterns, then turn to black. Like something scrambling it.

    Hi tatewhp573,

    This is signs of the graphic processor overheating. Make sure to give the air holes a sufficient free flow of air. Never use a Laptop on a bed, or on your lap, as this will decrease the circulation needed to keep it at working temperatures.

    If it starts doing as described, turn it of for 20 min, and try again. If it is still doing it, then the hardware used for the graphics has gone. The images and weird colors you are seeing is called artifacts.

    Artifacts are also caused by improper or dated drivers, try to install the newest drivers on the net. I would give you a link, but alas I do not have a model of your Laptop.

    Kind Regards :-)

    Sounds like you have a bad video card if so your looking a new motherboard to fix the issue. If you plug in an external monitor using the vga port on your lapop and you get the same thing on the external you have a bad video card.

    Compaq V5005us is weird. Powers on with black screen and freezes

    It sounds like your Video card and/or motherboard are starting to give out or your LCD is giving way. Try plugging the laptop into an external screen and see if it still acts strangely or even displays on the external monitor.

    Does your machine meet the games minimum requirements?
    If so have you tried turning the graphics down in your game interface?
    Laptop Graphics cards usually use your systems memory so they have a harder time rendering complex graphics. I play WoW and have my graphics turned up on my desktop but have them turned down to minimal for my laptop.

    Vista also takes allot of system memory thus leaving less for your video card. If you are going to play games on it on a regular basis I would suggest you have a minimum of 2GIGs of memory.
