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.

I Just Formatted My System With Windows XP Service Pack 3 , My Displays Are Not Clear ,Its In Blur State.

If you mean the displays are kind of fuzzy at a partiuclar resolution, try changing the refresh rate. Whenever you install XP, refresh rates default to 60 Hz - this is rarely the optimum for the display. Most displays operate best from 70-75 Hz or possibly higher. Right click on the desktop, observe DISPLAY PROPERTIES window. Select the SETTINGS tab, highlight the display you wish to modify, then click the ADVANCED button. Select the MONITOR tab. Use the SCREEN REFRESH RATE pull-down to select the refresh rate you need. Be advised, if you select a rate the monitor cannot handle you will lose visual on the display and could damage the monitor. You can avoid this by selecting the "HIDE MODES THAT THIS MONITOR CANNOT DISPLAY: check box.

I want refresh my nokia 6300 because its processing is very slow

If you phone responds slow, you'll need to free up some memory, particularly phone memory, scan with antivirus, uninstall unused programs, this will improve the performance. When you say refresh, in the terms of mobile phone, it means refreshing Ics with blower, which is not important in your case. Hope this helps you. Good luck

Monitor flickers and faint bands scroll down the

could be fixed by ajdusting the refresh rate....

you could try this (xp pro sp2)

please rate if useful, good luck

Open Display in Control Panel.
On the Settings tab, click Advanced.
On the Monitor tab, in the Refresh Frequency list, click a new refresh rate.

To open Display, click Start, click Control Panel, click Appearance and Themes, and then click Display.
  • The default refresh frequency setting is 100 Hertz, although your monitor may support a higher setting. Check your manufacturer's documentation for information regarding the settings your monitor supports.
  • A higher refresh frequency reduces any flicker on your screen, but choosing a setting that is too high for your monitor can make your display unusable and cause damage to your hardware.
  • Changes to the refresh frequency affect all users that log on to the computer.

OUt of Range

"Out Of Range" means your video adapter is set to a resolution/refresh rate setting that is outside the range of supported signals.

Go into your Video Adapter's settings, look at resolution then the refresh rate (Hertz), and compare to those supported by the monitor.

When I had a similar problem, I noticed that somehow, the refresh rate was set at 59HZ which is unsupported. After changing to 60HZ (which is supported) the problem went away.

If you are using windows, there is an option to show only refresh rates supported by the monitor. Start with 60hz and go from there. Remember that the bigger the resolution, the smaller refresh rate it will handle.
