Lap top screen pixilation

Help! Laptop screen has suddently pixilated so badly I cant see what is displayed. It seems to be starting up ok.

I have recently loaded up vodaphone software to use 3G - have I mistakenly loaded a virus??? Or has my trusty computer come to the end of its life?

Many thanks

Hi Claire, try to restart your PC on Safe Mode, try to uninstall the software that u installed that caused the problems, reboot it. if its work fine then that's it, but if u wnt to use the software try reinstalling it and be careful on the options u select when the installation is going, you might install it wrongfully and that causes the problem.

hope it helps...

I have a 42hp83 toshiba tv n when turned on i get pixils at bottom and blotchy pixils all over screen..

Check the connections to the TV, try to double check if the input source is good and does not carrry any video noise. the next thing would be a fault within possible with the drive, a screen failure or a processing fault..

Lap top ok but cant see anything on screen

2 possible problem, bad LCD or bad CFL. attach an external monitor and start your laptop. if you see a display, you need to bring your laptop to a professional repair center because fixing CFL needs special tool. if you are capable of removing parts of your laptop, you can find LCD assembly on ebay.
