I was playing a freddie fish game and then my computer screen went all messed up. The background color is off and everything is huge. We have tried all the setttings and what not, but nothing seems to work. I have restarted it and even took out the battery, and nothing will work. How do you fix this?

I don't know of a real solution for this problem, but i know hitting ALT + TAB to go in and out of the games helps restore the resolution.

I'm suspecting a faulty driver. Try searching " (model number) Motherboard driver".

SOURCE: Over heating probelm and freezing playing Games

You know in 'f that would be a nice weather.. in 'c its a nice Sauna.


The heatsinks and cooling in general is very poor on this series of laptops, I would recommend you use canned air in the ventilation slots and on the fan to get all the dust out.

also you could try one of those coolings pads that go under the laptop.

few years ago I had the same issue, what I did was I opened up the laptop and on the model I had 1522wlmi, the vga adapter card (on that model) is on the front / top. I put a Processor cooler from a desktop computer there, it kept it cool. down to 50'c instead of the 120'c it used to get. I even have a picture of it somewhere.

Your machine shouldn't just freeze instantly, unless the video adapter or mainboard has already suffered some damage from overheating.

You could try reinstalling windows to the machine, with the discs that came with it or with a normal windows setup cd.

after that see if the freezeing is gone, it won't solve the overheating problem but it should get rid of the freezeing unless its a hardware problem, the machine shouldn't overheat in just few minutes. Well the cooler these models is very poor and I don't recommend these laptops to any kind of gameing unless your playing solitaire.. ofcourse...

This sometimes happens after playing a game, if you go to your control panel and adjust screen your resolution.

It is possible that your VGA is malfunctioning. But you will notice it when the screen resolution is set to a specific resolution and color depth.
Games play at it's own resolution. Not at the resolution you set for Windows. Probably WoW is setting the screen resolution and color depth to a values at which the VGA fail.
Did you try changing the screen resolution in WoW options? If not try it. Also try changing color depth.
Also, download GPUZ and check your VGA.
Best of luck!

Sounds like a bad video card.A video inverter could cause distorted graphics but usually it turns out to be the graphics card.

tune down the settings in game. example: changing screen resoloution from 1200x1000 to 800x600, also decreasing the quality may help. another thing you can try is exiting ALL applications that are running while the game is running that are not needed, such as any downloading clients or anything that may be using up some of your computers processing speed.
