Question about OEM Systems RADEON 9700,, AGP Video Card

2 Answers

Graphics issues Hello, recently, within the last 2 days, something started going wrong with the graphic card on my laptop. The screen is fuzzy and sections don't quite line up, and it keeps on trying to reset and only gets worse. Other than that, nothing's overheating, shutting off, freezing up, and no blue screen of death. Just the extremely bad graphics. I played on it about a week ago, then left it off, and just turned it on yesterday, and then it suddenly started doing this. Nothing has been recently installed prior to this, and no changes in settings. XP Video card 9700 Radeon inspiron

There is a new release (7/9/09) for a driver suite for your graphics card. It's possible that a new driver will fix your problem. Here is the link for the new driver. Best of luck.
p.s. If you've tweaked the card at all recently, try rolling back your refresh rate to default

My screen goes fuzzy sometimes, and sometimes it shows double displays on one screen, it acts retarded or something. I have an hp pavilion dv2500

Could be one of four things:
  1. VGA cable from screen to the motherboard is loose or connection damaged, needs inspecting
  2. Display screen is failing, try this laptop on an external monitor, if display is ok, then at least the next problem is not the issue
  3. If the display on an external screen is just as bad, your graphics chip is going bad. On HP laptops, they use nvidia chips, which all seem to suffer due to overheating. If this is the case and you act quickly enough by stripping the laptop and cleaning out the cpu fan assembly and heatsink, you may get it working normally. If this fails to cure it, you will need to have the motherboard graphics chip "re balled"
  4. Bad graphics driver (least likely), download the latest graphics driver for this laptop

Removable Graphics Card: I have recently bought the NV5105u laptop but cant seem to find a site that explains if the graphics card is replaceable or not. thank you for your time.

Laptops today have the graphics integrated onto the system board. There isn't a separate card that you can replace if you want to upgrade or if something goes wrong.

The left side of my laptop screen wet all white with red green yellow blue lines running veretical lines running through it. looks like someone spilled paint on it


Vertical lines are usually caused by 2 things, either your graphics card is going bad or your screen is going bad. How you check if it is your graphics card is by plugging it into an external monitor (if you have one).
If the lines still appear on the external monitor then you know its the graphics card going bad, which isn't probably worth fixing these days if you take into account how must laptop pricing has dropped.

I hope this helps.

Best of luck!!

About 2 weeks ago, my screen suddenly went all fuzzy, like an old TV, only in green. I could still see the mouse, so I powered down and up again and all was well. Only, during the last two weeks the...

This can be a hardware issue with the display of the notebook. Check the screen in BIOS.
Steps to check in BIOS:
1.Please power ON the notebook, Keep tapping F10 as soon as you power it ON.
2.Press the F9 key to reset the BIOS defaults, it will ask to restore defaults. Hit Yes.
3.Press F10 and save the changes.
In BIOS please check if you can see the fuzzy screen. If the screen is same in BIOS then it is hardware issue, Motherbaord needs to be replaced.
If you do not see the screen fuzzy in the BIOS then update the BIOS and update the graphics driver

Hello Two days ago web images and logos on this PC/monitor started becoming fuzzy/pixelated. Also, web pages load slowly. Problem is seen with different browsers also. Desktop environment appearance is OK....

1)Go to Control Panel>Appearance and themes>display>settings>Make sure your screen resolution is set to more than 1024X768 and millions of colors.
You didn't download an accelerator for a modem, did you? If so, that is usually how the accelerator works, by deducting pixels from graphics. If that is the case, go to your accelerator and choose use original image settings. The other place we need to look is in browser settings and internet connections. See pics below. Make sure that compression settings are not too high.
2) clear your cache, cookies, and history.Instructions differ, but go to control panel>network settings>internet options. You can also check on your internet connection.
Lastly, if you have been making graphics for the web with Adobe, or another web program, make sure that you haven't changed your view settings in an effort to conserve memory in your editing programs. Sorry if I gave you redundant advice, I couldn't find your first post. Thanks, please continue to leave comments if your situation changes.
Text and graphics are totally different, so browse through you internet settings to make sure that you didn't accidentally changed something. You can choose reset original tools/option settings in browsers and Adobe if you are not sure where the problem comes from.

Graphics card or motherboard problems...

You've run the antivirus. Next, try to run malware & spyware programs. THen, run a good registry cleaner. This will aim the right things with the right things. If you made ANY changes to hardware, software, programs or data, there will be changes in your registry.

Icons green tint to them

I'm not sure but I think this model uses an integrated graphics card which would then involve replacing the entire motherboard.

It may be that the screen backlight is getting old - they often age by showing a tint, usually it is pink but I have seen them go greenish.

Try an external monitor connected to the laptop via the VGA d connector. If the picture on the external monitor has a good colour balance then it is probably not a faulty graphics chip, and likely to be the laptop screen.

A) It's probably something wrong with the drivers on your graphics' card. If it wasn't a laptop screen, I'd say it was hardware based as what you're describing is more like when the tubes go out on a TV--they start to "flicker".

B) There's also apparently an issue with your systems touch pad drivers.

My ultimate suggestion is to update your drivers for your graphics' card and touchpad using Acer's site and see if that resolves your issues.

Screen trouble

This could be clusters of dead pixels in the monitor, although there is nothing that can be done as the screens are normally too costly to replace.
