Laptop screen jumps and imprints (ghostlike) left on screen

I have an Acer Aspire 5633 running windows XP SP2. When I move the mouse to the righthand side of the screen the screen image jumps up and down very quickly until I move the mouse away.
Also when I open a window or program the image that was on the screen before leaves an imprint. So if I open for instance Explorer I see a light imprint of the desktop.
I have uninstalled the display drivers and reinstalled them but no change. Also tried changing refresh rate and lowering resolution and colours but still no luck.
The graphics card is nvidea geforce go7300 and does not require additional drivers other than those from windows, I believe. As others from nvidea I have tried for the 7000 cards say that no compatible hardware is found.

    Unfortunately the Nvidia driver says it can't detect any compatible hardware and the acer site doesn't list any drivers for this that I can see.

Drivers may not fix the issue but try the latest ones from the site below. You can't find them on the Nvidia site because Acer don't like sharing:

Q: Does NVIDIA support notebooks with UDA (downloadable drivers)?
Yes, NVIDIA has always been able to support notebooks with the unified driver on nvidia.com/nzone.com, however, our Tier 1 OEM partners have always required that we direct customers to their Web sites and disable support for their notebooks in our unified driver. NVIDIA does support OEMs/SBs who request that their notebooks be enabled in our unified driver. For example, most of our launch partners are enabled on our Web unified drivers (Sager, Falcon NW, Voodoo PC, ProStar, and others).

http://support.acer-euro.com/drivers/downloads.html

For some reason they don't list the 5633, but the 5630 has the same GPU.

Hope this helps,

erch.

    Did you try the VGA nVidia Driver ver 8.6.0.2 from the drop down menu on that site?

    To be fair I rather suspect that this is a hardware problem in any case, so I'm afraid it looks like a trip to the store or manufacturer.

Brand new notebook .. windows then, screen freeze..acer picture


This may require a "repair" of windows.

Get a Windows XP Operating system disk with the correct service pack that the notebook has installed (usually XP SP2).

1. Boot from it (put it in CD drive and restart the laptop).

2. If you still get the same problem start up, you need to set the laptop to boot from CD.

3. Restart laptop, press Delete key or F2, or F12 (it should say one of these on the screen) to enter the Setup. or another key to get "boot options"

4. In Setup (BIOS) Use Right Arrow to find the Boot Options. Use the instructions to move the CD-ROM to first position, above HDD (hard drive). Press Esc, then F10 to save your changes and exit.

5. The XP CD Rom should now run. It should come to a screen where you are asked to press R to repair windows.

6. When it comes to the command prompt, restart the laptop

Hopefully the laptop should boot OK again.

Wireless mouse?


Try disabling the mousepad on the laptop. sometimes this is what causes the problem. Another reason might be the mouse batteries. If they are running low you might experience problems like that.
