I have an Emachines T6532. The screen keeps "glitching" out on me. Any idea what might be causing this, or how to fix it??

DUDE! You can't post pictures like THAT!

Put sum clothes on that girl!






-> OH,....I'M JUST KIDDING! <-



1) Check the monitor cable.

If attached to the monitor, use the monitor, and cable on a WORKING computer. Same thing? Need a different monitor.

Use a KNOWN to be working monitor cable, if detachable; on your computer.

No? Monitor cable is good?
Go on.

2) We are dealing with a graphics problem.
Next in line is the graphics chipset.

The eMachines T6532 Desktop PC uses an MSI MS-7207 motherboard. Also known as the MSI K8NGM2-L,

http://www.msi.com/product/mb/K8NGM2-FID--IL--L.html

Clicking on the photo shows a MUCH better view.

You have two white PCI slots at the Bottom, (PCI1 and PCI2), and a white longer PCI Express x16 slot above them.

[The shorter white slot above the long white PCI Express x16 slot, is a PCI Express x1 slot)

Integrated Graphics is also known as OnBoard Graphics.
A term that seldom seems used anymore. Too bad because it explains better.
ON the motherBOARD.

The graphics chipset is part of the motherboard chipset, which is Soldered TO the motherboard.

If the OnBoard Graphics of the motherboard is suspected to be bad, the tech will then use a graphics card; and bypass the Integrated/OnBoard graphics.

You have your choice of using one of the white PCI slots, if available; or the white PCI Express x16 slot.
Posting in case you have a graphics card sitting around.

Anti-Static Procedures are FOLLOWED, with your unplugged from power computer. The graphics card is physically installed.
Monitor attached to graphics card.

When you turn the computer on, the graphics won't be perfect. This is because THE graphics drivers for THAT graphics card; has not been installed yet.

Will sort of look 'Fred Flintstone-sih'
(Color quality will probably be set at 8 bit, instead of 16-bit; and Screen Resolution will be wrong)

That's OK. Right now you are just trying to get graphics.

I'll guide you through installing the drivers.

I have a Sony vaio PCG 5K7P, and it's not getting started...when I switch it on...only the fan works and the lights on wifi and the charger are working....no display on the screen and no processor


Laptop on, shine a flashlight at the LCD screen at various angles.
If you see a faint image the problem is the Backlight, or screen Inverter.

90 PERCENT OF THE TIME the fault can be attributed to a bad screen Inverter.
(IF the laptop uses a screen Inverter.
CCFL backlighting uses a screen Inverter.
LED backlighting may, or may Not use a screen Inverter)

No faint images?

See if the problem is the graphics chipset, or Video Cable, or inside the Display Assembly.

Graphics chipset:
Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, connect a VGA monitor to the VGA port, on the laptop.

This is an example of a VGA Cable, and VGA connector, (port),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_Connector

Scroll down a little for cable example.
You can use a CRT type of monitor, (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor if it has a VGA cable.

Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type of monitor allow it to warm up.
Turn the laptop on.
By factory default settings, the display should show on the external VGA monitor.
IF not;

There are at least 3 display options available;
1) Internal monitor of laptop ONLY
2) Internal monitor of laptop AND external VGA monitor
3) External VGA monitor ONLY

Hold the Fn key down, and at the same time tap once on the F8 key. (The F8 key is the Display Toggle-Over key)
Still no display on external VGA monitor?
Hold the Fn key down again, and tap once more on the F8 key.

No display on external monitor, suggests a problem with the graphics chipset.

Most of the time the graphics chipset itself isn't the problem.
It is due to inadequate cooling for the graphics chipset, and this causes a problem with the MOUNTING, of the graphics chipset TO motherboard. (BGA surface mount)

If this is found to be the problem I will go into more detail.
I don't believe that is your problem, but there is NO guessing here.
We are following a diagnostic flowchart.

Good graphics on the external VGA monitor, means there is a problem with the Video Cable, or inside the Display Assembly.

A) Video Cable connections can be loose.
Connection at motherboard side, or connection of small cable to screen Inverter from Video Cable, (IF it uses a screen Inverter), or connection at back of LCD screen.

A LOT of times a loose connection can cause what you are seeing.

Video Cable could be damaged. Wires inside stretched/broken.

Inside the Display Assembly:
Video Cable checks out after a continuity test, then the screen Inverter is next in the diagnosis. (IF a screen Inverter is used)

Screen Inverter proves to be good, the problem is the LCD screen.
NO screen Inverter is used, the problem is the LCD screen.

Sony drives me crazy with their model numbering system.
What is the other model number on the bottom of the laptop?
Start with a VGN?
Post back in a Comment.

Once I have a model number I can deal with, I will post back with step by step info, and additional manual information.
(Service Manual. Perhaps pictorial guides, and video/s)

Non display for DELL GX 110PC Desktop


Either your monitor is bad or the video card inside the computer is bad. To isolate the problem try a different monitor on the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker. If the borrowed monitor works, then your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor does not work, then the video card inside your computer is bad.

Screen blank with white dot


Problem with;

1) Video cable:

A) Video cable connection on motherboard side is loose, and/or on back of LCD screen.

B) Video cable is damaged.

2) screen Inverter:

screen Inverter is bad.

3) LCD screen:

LCD screen is bad.

4) Graphics chipset:

Graphics chipset is bad.

Suggest you connect a VGA monitor to the VGA port (Connector) on your laptop.
See if the problem is the graphics chipset, Or video cable, Or display assembly.

You didn't state what manufacturer and Model Number of laptop this is.
All I can do is state generic information.

This is an example of a VGA Cable, and VGA connector,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

The VGA connector will be on the side, or back of your laptop.
For the VGA monitor you can use a CRT type monitor, (Looks like a small TV), or a flat LCD screen monitor that has a VGA cable.

Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, connect the external VGA monitor to the laptop.
Turn the monitor on. If a CRT type allow it to warm up.

Turn the laptop on.
By default the display should show on the external VGA monitor.
IF not;

There are at least 3 display options.
1) Laptop internal monitor ONLY
2) Laptop internal monitor AND external VGA monitor
3) External VGA monitor ONLY

Press, and hold down on the Fn key, and at the same time tap once on the Display Toggle-Over key.
(For an example HP's usually use the F4 key for a Display Toggle-Over key)

Display shows the same on the external VGA monitor?
You have a bad graphics chipset.

[ Some laptops have been erroneously stated as having a graphics card, when in fact they do not.
The GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) is soldered directly to the motherboard.
This is Integrated Graphics.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU

There is no changeable, replaceable graphics card. Therefore the solution is motherboard replacement ]

IF, the display is good on the external monitor, you have a problem with the Video Cable, and/or in the Display Assembly.

After diagnosing with an external VGA monitor, post back in a Comment.
Also post the manufacturer name, and model number of the laptop.

My laptop is on safe mode and has been for the past week. the thing is that my screen is all black and on safe mode, so i cant see anything on it at all. i've tried using the F8 solution but...


Let's diagnose your laptop together tiffanythao, and see if FixYa can help cheer you up.

Let's start by shining a flashlight at the LCD screen of the laptop, laptop on.
Shine the flashlight at various angles.

Do you see Faint images?

Another test if you have a VGA monitor available.
(CRT. Looks like a small TV. You can also use a flat LCD screen monitor, if it has a VGA cable on it.
More information on what a VGA cable looks like, and the VGA connector on the back of your laptop,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector

Laptop off, plug the VGA cable from the VGA monitor into the VGA connector on the back of the laptop.

Turn the monitor on, wait until it 'lights up'.
Now turn the monitor on.

If the monitor does not show any graphics on it;
Press, and hold down on the Fn key, then tap the F4 key.
This F4 key is a toggle over to an external monitor Hotkey.

Still no?
Hold the Fn key down again, and tap on the F4 key.
The monitor used may be the internal monitor still, and not the external monitor. (VGA monitor)

Still no? (No faint images with using a flashlight, and/or no graphics on an external monitor)
Then I bring you to a sad diagnoses.

The HP Pavilion dv2000, Pavilion dv6000, and Pavilion dv9000 series of Notebook PC's share a common problem.

Graphics chipset overheating.

A) Chip and Chipset are slang terms to denote I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_Circuit

B) A graphics chipset is a GPU soldered to a circuit board.
Graphics Processing Unit.

1) A GPU can be soldered directly to the motherboard (A circuit board), which is Integrated Graphics.

(Another term for Integrated Graphics is OnBoard Graphics.
Soldered directly to the motherboard. ON the motherBOARD)

2) A GPU can be soldered to a removable adapter card.
Graphics adapter card, or for short, graphics card.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU

The GPU in the Pavilion dv9000 series of Notebook PC's, is soldered TO the motherboard.
Integrated Graphics.

The method of mounting is a BGA surface mount.
Ball Grid Array,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ball_grid_array

To explain this type of mounting I'm going to use one of the older Intel Pentium 4 processors.
The one's that used a Socket 478 processor socket.

The bottom of the processor has 478 pins sticking down, from it's flat circuit board.
These pins lined up with 478 socket holes, in the Socket 479 processor socket.

Using a BGA surface mount there are no pins, and no socket holes.

The bottom of the GPU's circuit board has Solder Balls which take the place of the pins.
(Not 478 of them. I don't know how many)

The motherboard has matching Copper Pads.
The graphics chipset is set down on the copper pads, so that the solder balls are aligned with them.
Heat at a specified temperature, and length of time, is applied.
The solder balls melt soldering the graphics chipset to the copper pads.
In essence soldering the graphics chipset to the motherboard.

The Pavilion dv2000, dv6000, and dv9000 series of Notebook PC's have a poor cooling system.
Specifically the part of the system that cools the graphics chipset.

The graphics chipset overheats, and the solder connections start to melt, and this develops a bad contact.

Same cooling system as your Pavilion dv9000z,

http://www.insidemylaptop.com/disassemble-hp-pavilion-dv6500-dv6600-dv6700-dv6800-notebooks/

Scroll down to about three-quarters of the page until you come to Step 25, and Step 26.
That is the cooling system for your laptop.

The flattened curved copper tube is the Cooling Tube.

The aluminum looking X shape at the far left attaches to the cooling tube.
It sits on the top of the Processor's case, and absorbs heat from the Processor.
The heat is then transferred radiantly to the Cooling Tube, and towards the black Fan Assembly.

The next aluminum looking shape to the right, (square shaped tab that comes off of the side), sits on the graphics chipset.

The Cooling Tube goes on to connect to the finned black object on top of the black Fan Assembly.
The finned black object is a Heatsink.

The Heatsink absorbs the heat from the Cooling Tube. The thin, long fins of the Heatsink radiate the heat away.
Air from the Fan helps to carry heat away from the Heatsink.

The aluminum looking square tab is a heatsink also. It collects heat from the graphics chipset, and transfers it to the Cooling Tube.

This heatsink is TOO small.

More on what I have just described in a video.
(The gentleman is selling a repair also. I am only listing the video so you can see more in-depth of what I am 'talking' about, not advertising),

I start my computer up and i get 3 beeps and a black screen!


Three beep usually mean there is a ram issue. The computer is not passing the post. To resolve this issue I would first try to reseat the ram. Basiclly you will remove the Ram and place it back in the same slot. If this fail, place the ram in another slot.

1 out 50 times I turn on my Dell Dimension E520 there is no signal to the monitor. I have tried to install a new PCI express card instead of using the integrated graphics but the result was the same e.i no...


The problem is the Power Supply. Weak voltage power rail.

You've taken the right steps with your diagnosis.

1) Start with the monitor cable. If removable use a known to be good monitor cable.
Checks okay, go onto the graphics 'engine' of the computer.

If the monitor cable is not removable, use another monitor, and cable for a test.

2) If you are presently using Integrated Graphics the next step in diagnosing is to install a graphics card.
See if the problem is the Integrated Graphics 'engine'.

[ Just to add:
Intel GM X3100 is the graphics 'engine'. It is integrated into the Northbridge chip of the motherboard chipset.

Intel G965 chipset is the motherboard chipset. The Intel ID number on the Northbridge chip is 82G965.
The Southbridge chip is an Intel ICH8, or ICH8R, or ICH8-DH,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Core_2_Chipsets

{Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intergrated_Circuit }


The Northbridge chip handles the Processor, Ram Memory, and HIGH-speed graphics.
AGP and PCI Express are High-speed graphics.

A graphics card in a PCI slot is not High-speed graphics.

The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities of a computer.
PCI and Integrated Graphics being two of the slower capabilities.
SATA, IDE, USB, and Ethernet, are also some of the slower capabilities of a computer,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another name used is Microprocessor, or Processor for short ]

3) Power Supply.
Weak voltage power rail.

The Power Supply has enough power to light LED lights, and maybe spin fans, but Not enough power to turn the Processor on.

A) ALL the LED lights on at once will consume less than 1 Watt of power.

B) EACH fan consumes 2 to 3 Watts of power.

C) A typical Processor can consume (Maximum) 51 to 125 Watts of power.
Depends on what Processor it is.

The Dell Dimension E521 desktop computer's motherboard, has an LGA 775 processor socket.
(Processor has the socket holes, processor socket has the pins)

The Intel processors that can be used in this processor socket, can be an Intel Pentium 4, (Version that uses an LGA 775 processor socket), Intel Pentium D, or Intel Core2 Duo, AND Intel Core 2 Quad, with a maximum FSB of 1066MHz. (If the BIOS version will support Intel Core2 Quad processors)
{Front Side Bus of 1066Megahertz}

Wattage consumption can be as much as 105 Watts.

Do you have a KNOWN to be good, compatible Power Supply available, to use as a test unit?

{Compatible being that the Power Supply case fits, (ATX), has the right amount of power cables, and the correct power cables. (Needs to have a 24-pin ATX main power cable, and a 4-pin ATX +12 Volt power cable, for one)

Perhaps there is an unused computer that has a Power Supply you can borrow.
Maybe someone has upgraded to a better computer, and has an unused one with a compatible power supply for a test unit.

My m.board is directly power on and not giving any display mother board model is via- vt82c686b


Bear with me as this will be lengthy.

You're looking at a VIA Southbridge chip.

VIA VT82C686B

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_VIA_chipsets#South_bridge_chips

The Northbridge chip, and Southbridge chip, make up the motherboard chipset.
(For the technology used in that motherboard)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

In the motherboard diagram above, CPU stands for Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or simply Processor for short.

The Northbridge chip of the motherboard chipset, handles the faster processes of the computer.
The Southbridge chip handles the slower processes.

The Northbridge chip handles the Processor, Ram Memory, and high speed graphics.
High speed graphics being AGP, or PCI Express.

Not a graphics card inserted into a PCI slot, and not Integrated Graphics.

The Southbridge chip handles Integrated Graphics, or a graphics card inserted into a PCI slot, or any adapter card inserted into a PCI slot.
Anything to do with a PCI bus.

It also handles IDE devices such as an IDE harddrive, (Or harddrives), and IDE optical drive/s, (CD/DVD), plus SATA devices.

Plus it handles USB ports, an Ethernet port, and so on.
[The rest of the slower processes are detailed in the motherboard diagram]

The Northbridge chip on your motherboard will be under a Heatsink.
The Heatsink is glued on to the top of the chip.

(Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_circuit

This photo shows a typical motherboard, and the Heatsink on the Northbridge chip,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Asus_a8n_VMCSM02.jpg

In the center of the photo you will see a square aluminum looking object, that has fins on it.
This is a Heatsink, and it's attached to the top of the Northbridge chip's case.

You can left-click on the photo to enlarge it. You can click twice.

(This Asus A8N-VM CSM motherboard, uses an Nvidia Northbridge chip, and an Nvidia Southbridge chip. The VIA chip you see is a Firewire controller chip. VT6307)

To your problem;

1) If your monitor cable is removable, remove it, and use a KNOWN to be good one. Check to see if it's a bad monitor cable.
If the monitor cable is not removable, use a Known to be good monitor, and it's cable.

2) The problem could be the Integrated Graphics on your motherboard. The GPU could be bad.
(Assuming you're not using a graphics card)

[ Integrated Graphics, and GPU:

GPU stands for Graphics Processing Unit. It is a chip.

The GPU could be soldered directly to the motherboard, or soldered to a removable adapter card.

Soldered to the motherboard = Integrated Graphics.
Another term used for Integrated Graphics is OnBoard graphics.
ON the motherBOARD.

Integrated graphics used on your motherboard, will have a blue VGA port that you plug your monitor into.
Newer motherboards will use either a VGA port, or a DVI port, (White), or both.

Soldered to a removable adapter card = Graphics Card.
Also known as a Video Card ]

The way you would test to see if Integrated Graphics is bad, on your motherboard, is to use a graphics card.

3) A VERY large percentage of computer problems is a bad Power Supply. Weak voltage power rail.

Has enough power to light LED lights, and spin fans, but not enough to turn the Processor on.

A) ALL of the LED lights combined use less than 1 Watt of power.

B) EACH fan uses 2 to 3 Watts

C) A typical Processor can use 51 to 125 Watts.
(Older Processor's, such as an Intel Pentium III for example, use less power)

No processor operating, No computer.
No computer = No Signal on the monitor.
No video signal.

VGA Problem


First open your display properties, click the settings -> Advanced ->Adapter ->List all modes. Check and see if 1440x900 is availabe there.
If not, there are many different integrated graphics adapter from Via. Check http://www.viaarena.com/default.aspx?PageID=2&OSID=1&CatID=1160 and download the newest driver for the integrated graphics you have. If you're not sure, you can look on your motherboard and you should be able to identify the chip (will be one of larger ones) and determine the model from that.
You can also look up your motherboard's model (usually printed on board) on the motherboard manufacter's website to determine the graphics chipset onboard.
If you have updated the graphics driver and still do not see it, try going to your monitor's manufacters website and see if there are drivers available for it.
If you have updated both drivers and still cannot aquire 1440x900 (I'm assuming it is a widescreen LCD flatpanel) then you may want to contact the manufacter and find out if the graphics chipset is capable of supporting sed resolution.
If it isn't, you can purchase a video card either PCI (yes they still make them), AGP or PCI-E online for relatively cheap that will give you 1440x900.
