I also get a notice the Rundll32 has stopped working. I have run anti-viral software and nothing came up. I have also done a system restore and updated direct x.

    I forgot to mention that I have tried to update the drivers and it does not find a video card.

    Possible problem with card or your onboard graphics could be conflicting with the new card drivers. check to make sure the card is properly insurted into the PCI-E port and try again. Try updating drivers from nivida website, Try going into device manager on your computer and check to see if your system is detecting  your gfx card.

I would try reinstalling the drivers for your video card. If your drivers are not loading usually windows will default your drivers, hence the 800x600 res and crappy 4bit color. If you are still seeing picture I would be more inclined to lean towards this being a software issue and not a hardware one. One other thing you may or may not want to try is a reinstall of software. If you don't want to wipe your current drive I would see about finding a cheap smaller drive to try this on. You should be able to find a used hard drive around 20 GB at a computer shop or on ebay.

Toshiba Model 51h84


The wavy when cold is a issue with a board in the set--Hyper board--the warmup until it begins to work will gradually get longer and longer.

The blue: look at set on a unused video input--if see faint curved blue lines with some blue visable on the screen the blue screen control needs to be adjusted just slightly down until the blue and curved lines are not seen.

It has a wavy line through middle of screen with like white light shining through it in three places. I do not think it is the convergence, when I go to convergence screen the red and blue will move but...


All projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video or dead set) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both.

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. In some cases the TV will also not show any video. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.

Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

In Word 2007 I get a blue wavy line under most of the text like the green wavy line for grammar and the red wavy line for spelling. I think it is to do with formatting but I cannot find how to get rid of...


Hi dtennant

Blue lines indicate that Word has auto-corrected a word. To undo the change move the cursor over the blue line and left click the lightning bolt. Select 'Change back to'. Or to stop Word correcting that word again select 'Stop Automatically Correcting'

Does this help?

Wavy lines appear across the screen


Projection TV sets have two very common problems listed below.

Problem #1) Convergence


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture
