Red spots and Lines on Laptop

I've got some problem with red spots and that appear as long as i run my PC.

It seems like it's most common on the places where there are dark pixels. I tried installing the newest Drives for my Graphic card (ATI Radeon HD2600) and the problem still remains the same.

The laptop model im using is an Asus X53K

Re: Red spots and Lines on Laptop

Is that a tft you use?
and if the red spot that you see is there at the same place everytime you boot your system, dont worry, its just a dead pixel. It happens with tft's and manufacturers say that upto 7 red spots need not be taken as a defect.

If the system works properly in "Safe Mode" the problem is with your drivers. Try and update the drivers by downloading them from the manufacturers website. Although, having looked at the spec, it could just be that you are not using the supplied monitor adaptors to run your display. Try it that way and see. Good luck.

Constant crashes during any game

I had this exact problem with my Geforce graphics card. After ensuring that it wasn't overheating, I opened up the PC and reseated (removed and plugged it back in firmly) the graphics card. This actually fixed the issue. Issue caused by a poor connection probably due to too much dust inside the PC.
Failing that, the graphics card would need to be replaced.

Hope it helps!

ATI RADEON X1650 Pro Problem

The graphics card might not be working in sync with your processor. Get it checked WHY this is happening. Probably a faulty connection somewhere. See if you can find one before getting it checked.
