Hello my friend this is looks like a graphic cards problem but we are going to check few things before change it.First you need to do is to turn off hardware acceleration-

  1. Click on Start > Control Panel.
  2. In the classic view, double click on the Display icon.
  3. Select the Settings tab and click on the Advanced button. The Advanced Settings dialog box appears.
  4. Click on the Troubleshoot tab.
  5. You can disable the hardware acceleration completely by dragging the slider to the extreme left of the scale. You can also choose to turn down the hardware acceleration by selecting an intermediate value.
If the issue is resolved with hardware acceleration turned off, the source of the problem could be old video drivers for your video adapter that you had.So we are going to the next step.
Uninstall all the graphic drivers and install the latest one,if you still have problem then you have to change your graphic card

You didn't supply the Make , Model of laptop or the OS you are using? So the only solution I can suggest is a generic one. Open Device Manager,Display Adapter, Uninstall the Graphics Adapter, reboot. Allow your version of windows to apply the generic driver. Post results. Are the fan and vents clean? Is the Laptop getting proper air flow? You may have to open the machine to clean and replace Thermal Paste on CPU and Graphics Adapter.

I have an HP pavilion dv9540us laptop that is having screen issues. I can only get the screen to work randomly...and then only for a few minutes. If i restart the computer it goes completly black or has...

See if the problem is there when you boot into safe mode. (Keep tapping the F8 key while booting). If you get your screen is working ok then it is software/driver related. By the sound of it , it is a graphics card problem. The graphics are integrated on this model so it means a new motherboard or sending it to a specialist repairer. Srri.

Torpedo kerosene heater shuts off after 15 seconds, have to push reset and it starts again, what's the problem?

Does it light? If it does it could be the electric eye that sees the flame and keeps the unit running. It is either dirty or bad. remove the eye and clean it. It pulls straight out and has two prongs on it. Does not matter how it goes back in. It is just a switch. Replace and try again. If it still does not light replace the eye.

If you cleaned the eye and or replaced it and it still does not work there are a few more things to check...
  • Not gtting enough fuel. Check the filter. Usually a small in line filter.
  • It also could be the transformer is getting weak. The transformer produces 10,000 volts between the two electrodes that keeps the heater running. I would only change the transformer if everything else checks out.
  • The electrodes may also need adjusted.
  • The nozzle also may not be atomizing the fuel properly to keep the unit running. I recommend changing it at least once a year depending on the use.
There are some good video on YouTube that will give you some great troubleshooting ideas.
