Problems occurs when you have an integrated graphics card that hasn't been properly disabled in the BIOS. try to disable the graphic card first if u have one. if u don't, then check for service packs. upgrade if necessary. if it still doesn't solve the problem, you should check try a system restore back to the date prior to the installation of the drivers. then you should try re-installing them.

After installing the ASUS EAH5450 my computer turns on and runs fine on my desktop monitor. However, I've hooked up a HDMI cable to my Sharp Aquos and the tv says it's receiving an incompatible...

The easiest thing to try is change the screen resolution before connecting via HDMI. The process is a little different depending on what operating system you're using.
For Windows Vista/Windows 7: 1. Right click on your desktop and select "Screen Resolution" 2. Slide the bar to change the resolution to either 1024x768 or 1280x1024. 3. Click apply.
For Windows XP: 1. Right click on your desktop and select "Properties" 2. Click on the tab to the far right that says "Settings" 3. Under Screen Resolution, slide the bar to change the resolution to either 1024x768 or 1280x1024. 4. Click apply.
Either of these resolutions should at least give you picture when you reconnect with HDMI. Once you get a picture, repeat these steps and gradually move the slider higher to get a better resolution picture. If you receive the incompatible signal message again, just wait 15 seconds and the previous setting will be restored.
If this doesn't work, you may also have to adjust the screen refresh rate. From the same window that has the screen resolution adjustment bar, click the link or button that says "Advanced." The second tab, "Monitor," has a drop-down menu to adjust the screen refresh rate. Depending on your HDTV, the most common setting for this could be 60 Hz, 70 Hz, or 120 Hz. If none of those values work for you, you should check the manual that came with your TV to check what the proper resolution and refresh rate should be for your computer connection.

When i scroll it scrolls in horizontal waves down the page. In device manager the graphics card informs me that i have a code 10 and the card does not start up. Do i need to reinstall the drivers?...

I would try an install. The problem you are describing is definitely a video card memory problem.
The scroll is using a lot of memory to refresh and it obviously is not doing that well. This is the most common symptom of video memory without doing really fancy stuff.
var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_60e23aabac4d4a76a8689b07ab3869de(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); } var fctb_tool=null; function FCTB_Init_187cbfc04fc746e6b332384fadf55be6(t) { fctb_tool=t; start(fctb_tool); }

Lines running down screen - have tried different monitors and same problem - have changed ram over and problem persists - am thinking it either display driver or graphics card

If you have not made any changes to your system and the problem has surfaced apparently without cause, the graphics card is the most likely suspect.

However, when troubleshooting, go back to check any actions you may have initiated just prior to the appearance of the problem.

For example, if you have relocated or reconnected monitors (or cables were stretched) just prior to the problem, check the port on the graphics card for bent pins. If you just updated a driver, remove it. If you have experimented with display settings in Windows control panel or just replaced a graphics card, check Display Properties - Settings, particularly the screen refresh rate in advanced settings (reduce refresh rate).

Any of these issues can cause the symptoms you describe, in addition to failed graphics cards and faulty drivers.

Monitor will not support refresh rate, how do i change it if I can not get a screen image?

Try loading windows in Safe mode. And remove or disable the Radeon card, Safe mode will load windows generic video drivers, then go to control panel, and click on device manager and then click on display adapter, and delete the driver, you must delete it or the Radeon card will reload its driver the next time u reboot and you problem will not go away.

GeForce 9400 gt, black screen problem

It looks like your graphics card changes the screen resolutions and/or refresh-rate to something beyond your monitor's capabilities.

After installing the drivers and the screen goes black, restart you're computer and press F8 to get the Windows advanced menu boot and choose "Enable VGA Mode".

When booted into Windows, right click on the desktop and select "properties", select the tab "Settings" and pick a really low resolution like "1024x768" and press the "Apply" button (but don't reboot yet when asked to). Next press the "Advanced" button, then select the tab "monitor" and change the monitor resolution to "default" or 60Hz.

Now restart your system and see wether Windows will boot normally. If so, you can change the resolution and refresh-rate back to you preferred values. Whenever you pick a too high resolution or refreshrate the screen will turn black again, but don't worry, don't press anything and just wait 15s, after which Windows will roll back to the previous setting ...

Asus a9600 ge/td

There is no problem with the video card, for sure... it is the monitor has the limit. 100% sure. I have seen a lot, even screens limited to 800 x 640... Try a different monitor instead... use a 65-70HZ type to achieve higher resolution.

Give me a Fixya on this my friend... Post me more problems if you have.... C ya later.

Problems after installing drivers

Does this happen AFTER Windows has done a full boot up, or before?

If this happens after Windows has started, then the problem may be with the vertical refresh rate. Some monitors will shutdown if the refresh rate is set too high. To correct this, I would suggest loading your computer into Safe Mode, which should allow the video to work, and go into your video properties (right click "Desktop", select "Properties", click "Settings" tab, click "Advanced"). On the "Monitor" Tab will be a drop box for Screen Refresh Rate. If it's set to something above 80Mhz, try selecting a lower rate, such as 70Mhz. Other than that, I'm not sure. And no, you cannot use Remote Desktop to change the refresh rate as it doesn't use the video card to display with.

Vibrating monitor

Depending on what monitor you have (most new lcd/plasma models dont have vertical hold) it may have a vertical hold adjustment knob. If you have not already tried adjusting it, turn it all the way clockwise, then all the way counter-clockwise, and then see if you can find a middle ground and slow or stop the jumping.

Another thing it could be is your video adapter, if the above step does not repair it, shut down the computer, unplug the video cable, then plug it in again and secure it tightly with the provided screws. If THAT still doesn't do it, shut down, remove the video card, then make sure the contacts are not damaged and are clean, re-insert the card and secure it properly to the chassis with its screw. Attach the video cable, and turn on the computer.

If none of the above fixes your issue, the last step I would suggest is reinstalling/updating the drivers for the video card, available at your card manufacturers website.

If that doesn't help you, the only way to continue troubleshooting would be to open the device up and service it, which I would strongly advise against if it is a CRT monitor (Glass screen, heavy) as certain components hold strong charges that can seriously harm you and possibly cause death, if you touch the wrong component.
