I have a pretty old computer but i dont think that is why my graphic card is messes up. its a window 200. ok when i first go tthis comp it was working fine then one day when i started up a gb emulator that i play it was giong really slow unlike wat it used to be. my graphic card is Direct 3d. i also cant play high graphic games when i start it up a window pops up then it has some random symbols in it, the only thing i can read is Direct 3d and Direct X. So if u can tell me how i can fix this plz tell me. maybe a software that fixes this kinds of things or do i have to get a brand new graphic card. if u suggest for me to buy a new one can u tell me the best place to buy one??

I have pentium 4,model is old 6 years,and I have LG Flarton w 2230s monitor,and I cant see a full image on my display,borders are shorter for 4cm in both side,maybe my graphic card is old?


I think that you have the wrong resolution set on the computer.

1/ Right click on the background part of your screen, click on settings, look at the screen resolution, adjust the screen resolution for wider setting.

2/ Try downloading the latest drivers for you graphics card and installing them.

3/ If you have a cd with drivers for the monitor install them and that will be fixed.

Or you may need a later model graphics card.

Computer boots up with many pixel problems


Missing pixels usually mean only one thing the video card is shot and must be replaced. Try to get an older video card (maybe borrow from a friend) to test and make sure it's not the monitor or wiring. If a different video card works and yours keeps failing, a replacement is the only solution short of owning a clean room, robotic arms, a very good grasp on electrical engineering, and fixing that extremely tiny circuitry by yourself.

How do I shrink desktop icons, window tabs, font?


try to higher your resolution(right click, properties),if it does not solve your prob. i think you mess with the video card installer. install the video card installer again. About your icon dont worry it will return to its place after you get back your resolution.

I want to fix a video problem XP media center 2005. Can I use the Repair ability (not recovery) from the reinstallation disk for just fixing media center and not affecting XP?


nah it doesnt work like that sadly.

most video problems are caused by the graphics adaptor driver.

click start
right click computer
click properties
click hardware tab
then device manager

everything in yellow means its a driver problem

it could also be you have the wrong driver installed or the settings are messed up. YOu have to reinstall the driver. use the cd that came with your graphics card or the one that came with your mainboard if you dont have a graphics card.

If you lost your cd the drivers can be downloaded from the manufactures web site.

I doubt the problem is with your computer. Most likely yahoo was having problems. Try again at a time when yahoo traffic is light and see what happens.

i would say you may have video card issues. these computers that come from dell and gateway usually dont have a nividia graphics card. my best advice is to take this computer back and get a new one if this is the case because you will find it hard to play many other high end video games. it sorrta sucks but nividia and avi have a clench on video games and their graphics

for the first problem, when you start it in safe mode, go to the start menu, then click run, nd type msconfig, a window will popup, it will say system configuration. Go to the start up tab, and it should show all of the programs that start up in regular mode. If theres alot of programs, this might be your problem, so uncheck all the programs that you dont recognize, that dont have to do with your antivirus, sound card, or graphics card. About the second part, i dont quite understand about the disk space.

Stopping Windows updates


Go to Control Panel --> go to Security Center --> Automatic Updates and go to it's options, properties or preferences page. Select "Turn off automatic updates"

A sidenote though, I honestly do not think your online virus scan is reliable. If you update by using Windows Update or Microsoft Update there will be no virusses. There's a big change the scanner itself is harmful software named Scareware (it tells you something is wrong, or potentionally harmful, then it tells you to download an exotic virusscanner or something to protect you but infect creates even more trouble by means of spam, spyware, pop-ups or trojans.)

Try installing a virus scanner from a trustes developer. Don't want to pay for it? Don't worry. There are some pretty good (and trusted) free ones.

Try this one:
[Grisoft AVG Free Edition]

I hope this answers your question, please rate.
