Is this a new set-up, or have you always used it as it is?

It could be source #1 and#2 are both feeding the input and causing interference. You need to switch between the two, or turn one source off.

    It could be the chip controlling horizontal hold if it keeps scanning.

    You may have caused a spark-overload when unplugging or plugging in systems while on.



    In that case it needs a tech to take it apart and trace the issue, unles you are trained in repair of electrical systems.

    crack or cold solder is very dangerous of the unit because correct current flows to the circuit cannot pass due to a crack of solder or higher current cannot supress or limited and cause burnt of the spare parts and that's why abnormality comes out,like swift interference ;automatic shot off of unit and many problem .If this cannot be stop and your unit will be dead set ;due to burnt spare parts, stop this as early as possible ,by reheating what im state above...

What exactly are you hooking up through source 1 and 2. Follow this link:
User Instructions
note: p54-110 is english. It includes all langues so you need Adobe reader and it may download an updated language pack. You want to make sure the resolution and frequency are correct. refer to page 79 from the above link for acceptable resolutions and frequencies.
Keep me updated.
Thanks,

If you unplug video 1 and 2 does it still do it? If not then either your cables are not grounding properly or there is a problem with one of the board or ICs in the TV. Try only 1 of the two inputs at a time then switch to see if you can determine if a certain input or device is causing your problem.

    Video card has become slightly loose in its slot, or that one of the
    cables – possibly the cable going from the monitor to the video card –
    has worked a little loose, or has a bent pin. Bent pins can often be
    properly repositioned by hand, or with the aid of a simple household
    tool like a tweezers. If the cable and connection appear to be okay,
    power down your system, unplug the computer’s main power cable, pull
    off the computer’s outer case, and try removing and reseting the video
    card.

    Monitor is plugged into an old surge protector or buzz strip, which may
    mean that the monitor is being supplied with insufficient or ‘dirty’
    (uneven) power. Is there a power light on the surge protector, and if
    so, is it flickering? If so, try plugging the monitor directly into the
    wall, or into a brand new power strip.

I want to upgrade the mother board in my Vaio PCV-RZ44G Desktop so that I can run Windows 8. What board forms are compatible and is an Intel I3 or I5 CPU better?


You would be better off applying the money to a new computer. You are opening "Pandora's Box" . You will end up with a old case with ALL new components. That may or may not work, A.K.A., "pain and heartache".

How to format and instal a window xp


1.Insert your Windows XP installation disc into your CD drive<br /><br />2.Now as you computer boots a little more it will say "Press any key to boot from CD.." press a key to do so.<br /><br />3.The CD will load up a blue screen and then spend a while loading files it needs. When it is finished it will list a few options, mainly "Press ENTER to set up Windows XP." Press Enter or Return.<br /><br />4. Now you will be at a screen to select where to install Windows to. This is where you can delete old partitions and format drives. The box in the bottom half of the screen shows all your drives and the partitions that exist on them. Use the Up and Down arrow keys to highlight your "C:" partition and press the 'D' key (if all that shows up is "Unpartitioned space" and you have no C: or D: partitions, skip this step). On the next screen press the 'L' key to finalize deleting the partition.<br /><br />5.Now you are back on the screen to choose where to install Windows. The box on the lower half of the screen should no longer show a partition but simply have an entry "Unpartitioned space xxxxxMB." Select this with the arrow keys and press the 'C' key to create a partition on the drive. The next screen tells you the minimum and maximum sizes the partition can be and lets you pick the size. The default size is the maximum, but double check that the number entered is the maximum and hit enter.<br /><br />6.Now you will again be back at the choose where to install Windows screen. But this time you will have a partition that looks something like this "C: Partition1 [New (Raw)]xxxxxxMB." Highlight this entry and press enter.<br /><br />7.The next screen lets you choose which file system to format the drive with. Choose NTFS as it is faster and more secure. If the drive is brand new and has never been used before then use one of the options that ends in "(Quick)." Or, choose one of the lower down options. Use the arrow keys to select the proper one and press Enter or Return.<br /><br />8. From here you are all set and the installation of Windows will proceed starting with a format of your drive. This will take a while (over half an hour)

My VGC-JS160J will randomly have the screen go dark for 1 - 2 seconds and then return without any data loss. Is there any "fix" to correct this recurring issue? Thanks


You may need to update the video driver.
Go to Soney.com for the latest driver.
I hope this helps.
Good Look and have a fantastic day.

My HP Slimline s3430f first had a DRIVER_IRQL_NOT_LESS_OR_EQUAL issue that was preventing Windows from loading (blue screen only at startup). I then inadvertently switched the video source on startup from...


Hi,
In my understanding, the DRIVER IRQL can be if a driver is not installed properly, is conflicting with a system resource or if its a hardware device, it needs the irq changed.
Second, if you have changed the video source to internal cad, why not plug your monitor into that card, reboot pc then change it back to the other card.
Finally, most mother boards have ways to be reset, but if it's a setting in windows, it may not cure your problem.

We would need *********** board make and model in order to try and guide you through resetting as there is no "universal" way that is safe. This sould be an absolute last resort though.

Sony vaio pcv-w30 full display on screen


Download the video driver for your laptop:

Go to this page:

http://esupport.sony.com/US/perl/swu-list.pl?mdl=PCVW30

Go to the video section and download the file to the desktop. Then go ahead and install it and after the laptop reboots at that point you should be able to display with the whole screen.

I OWN A 4 1/2 YEAR OLD FUJITSU 50 INCH PLASMA. THE RED LIGHT THAT NORMALLY INDICATES THE SET IS OFF, HAS GONE DARK. THE SET WON'T POWER UP. ALL THE OTHER BOXES AND ARE IN WORKING ORDER. WHAT DO I DO?


Well, if it's still in warrantee, you find a reputable licensed technician to see about it.
What's this about other boxes that work? The video sources?
If it is not in warrantee, you probably set out some towels, get a couple of people for spotters, take the screen down and dust it out, checking for other signs of damage or overheating, or simple tripped fuses, then re-plug and see if it feels more like powering up.
Then, if it doesn't power up, it will become handy to have a repair manual for the thing and the usual electronic troubleshooting bench setup and readings; or at least a good search of the --particular model-- you have online or at the sales shop or otherwise, to see what parts of it respond to replacement according to the product's or maker's reputation.

Finally...how in blazes, you can tell us, is a 50" plasma screen a generic problem of PC Desktops?
