Video keeps going out and locking up my computer

I have a pavillion slimline 7520 and the video card or adapter keeps going out. This will be the fourth one and I keep sending it back. Can I replace this myself?? What is causing it?? Kids games???

    I'm seeing the same thing: white screen, vertical lines or video drop-out. When that happens, the system (disk access) stops and I have to reboot. Tried system recovery and the unit stopped in the middle, now I'm in real trouble. Saw other entries suggesting power supply issues. Could that be it? I put a PCI video card in and that didn't help.

OK, tried the replacement video card: bought an off-motherboard PCI card and that didn't help. Went for broke and got myself a replacement power supply. BINGO, back in business. So the flaky video performance was because of the power supply dropping out, at least in my case.

I had the same problem: the video card is overheating I solved the issue by adding an auxiliary fan and drilling additional holes for ventilation I also made two small stands to elevate the case 4 inches so as to get additional air flow to the bottom of the desktop.

Download SpeedFan and check the running temperature of your hardware. Seems like the graphics chip is overheating. If "remote" sensor shows flame icon -- then you know that the corresponding part of the system is overheated for some reason... In that case you may need to replace the entire motherboard...

Good luck.

How to replace the video card in a hp pavillion slimline s5603w


Purchase a video card that is "PCI Express x16". When you get the card, just take the side off your computer and you will see what slot to put it in, there is only one that it will fit.

HP Slimline Pavillion s3123w monitor going to sleep.


Sounds like the motherboard might be bad but go thru these steps.


Unseat and reseat the memory one stick at a time in each slot one at at time and turn on the computer after each stick reinsertion.


If that doesn't get the video to come back up then go ahead and unseat and reseat the CPU. Then try turning on the computer.

If that doesn't do it, make sure there is no power going to the hard drive or the dvd drive. Then try turning on the computer.

If you do all of these steps and you still have no video, then the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced.

If you have no video at all then turn off the laptop. Reseat the memory and then turn the laptop back on with just the AC Adaptor hooked up to see if you get video if not then try reseating the memory into the other slot and try turning it on again to see if you get video. If not then your motherboard may be bad. Just curious though after you turn on the laptop, does the hard drive light keep flickering like its trying to load windows?

Will not boot


You can goto BIOS setup be pressing DEL, ESC, or one of the "F" [function} keys just before " memory count " finishes.To see what is turn 'on' or 'off' look through the menus & submenus.look for video [ ON if you have 'on board' video and off if you have a EXTERNAL video card.]
temperaty take EVERYTHING out by unpluging the wires going to computer (mother board) [cd's, h/d, floppy drive, and any other extras] You can keep them 'dangling' from e.i. floppy, cds [rom,ram,dvd etc.] keep the memory, display adapter (if you have a EXTERNAL video card) and boot up the computer.You must see the memory "count up" in DOS (black screen with numbers running on left side of screen) .At first if the machine does not turn on, replace the video card.Then after UNPLUGING a/c power put back ONE piece of equipment at a time (of cause you will replug a/c power)and rebooting.
