Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Thank you for your suggestions

I did as you suggested and updated the graphics card driver. This did not help. I also tried lower resolution. The problem is that there are big splotches and lines of purple/red pixels (even when i lower the resolution), and these areas of pixilation change according to whatever appears on the screen, so for example, if there is a photo of mountains, there will be pixilation on parts of the mountains, and if i am viewing some graphics, there will be pixilation along the graphics. It's not just a couple of bad pixels. It began this evening a little after downloading a photo from a disc that my sister had send me, so i assumed it's a virus, but a complete virus scan didn't turn up anything. Any other suggestions will be most welcome. Many thanks.

    neither fixya nor geek squad could figure this one out. i finally discovered that it was simply that the lines btwn monitor and tower were loose.

Hi Shaidan ... try going into the system settings and advanced then visual effects under performance ... put it on custom then disable (remove checks) beside everything ... also many graphic cards have fans on the graphic processor these days ... you can take a look at that and make sure it is clean and performing ok ...

Computer screen resolution won't stay


Either your graphics card is not able to support the resolution or you need to update the graphics driver.

Remember to click apply and then ok when setting the resolution.

Update the graphics driver by visiting the Nvidia or AMD website, depending on the maker of your graphics card. Then serach for the driver using the model name of your card.

If you are using onboard graphics from the mainboard then you will need to find the grapics driver on the mainboard manufactures website.

Take care!

Intel Integrated Graphics will give decent resolution performance but is not an optimal graphics.
Ensure you are using the optimal resolution 1366x768 pixels. Using a lower resolution will give you a unsatisfactory display.
If you still don't like the graphics, you may need to add an expansion video card.

How to solve D3DERR not available


Without seeing your system specifications, cpu type, ram, graphics card make and model, etc... I will offer some suggestions:

Update your Direct X drivers, and then update your graphics card drivers, in that order. You may find that completely uninstalling your graphics drivers may be needed before a new install.

You may need to update your video card. If you have an older card, but are trying to play a newer game, even some of the web based flash games like Mercenary Wars, you can get these errors.

After start up the pc monitor goes blank


Unplug P.C. remove BIOS battery and and wait a few minutes, replace and connect, boot and see what happens.

More than likely the bios is not switching to your video card, asuming that what you have your moniotr connected too.

Resetting the bios may help.

If not, try removing the video card and connecting to the onboard video, if it has it.

Did it work before and suddenly just start doing this? or is this after you installed something?

Let us know.

Good luck

Hi Helpmonkey


It could be the monitor but from you earlier descriptions it seemed to be related to the graphics card ... can you test your monitor on another system ... also you can reset the monitor settings using the controls on the monitor its self... the suggestion about the graphics card fan requires you to look inside the computer system ...

Screen Resolution


are you sure you have connected a graphics card. If so you dont need any driver because the graphics card depending on the model has already the necessary driver included just like when you first bought your motherboard.

Now, if your're only using the onboard graphics( that is the graphics card of the motherboard itself), you have to check whether the graphics supports resolution higher than 640x800. On board graphics, as far as i know contains only the necessary that will output on your screen, it means the resolution should not go much higher. But, you still have to check.

For assurance and for the best picture you wanted to have(probably your'e playing high resoulution games), I suggest that you buy the necessary graphics card that is supported by the games. Example of such brand is inno3d series.
