Question about HP Pavilion ZV5000, ZV6000, ZX5000 Series 12 Cell Li-Ion Battery - DP390A (DP390A1) CD-ROM Drive

HP laptop display

My problem is whenever I try to download games or play existing games, my screen goes all scrambled and I can't see anything, so I have to turn my computer off. If the game loads in a minimized version, I can play, but as soon as I try to maximize it, the screen scrambles again. I've been having this annoying problem since my boyfriend borrowed my computer and his brother messed with the display to put it on his TV. Please help! Thanks!

    I've actually tried to change my display, but as soon as I hit the apply button, it scrambles my screen just like with the games. I end up having to turn it off and restarting it. Sometimes the screen will stay scrambled when the system reboots, so I have gotten good at navigating without being able to see. Any more ideas?? Thanks!!

Hi tredler,

Are you running a Windows OS?

If so, it is possible when your boyfriend used your laptop with a TV he may have changed the resolution settings. This may cause a compatibility issue when loading certain programs or games.

I suggest navigating to your Display properties through the Control Panel. Click on the advanced tab and change the resolution. This may be labeled as "Desktop Size." Try increasing the resolution (or adding "more" Desktop Size).

Thank you,
Jason,

I have scramble challenge edition on my ipad and it will not connect to the net


I have been having the same problem with Scramble Challenge Edition on my iPhone. I tried my wife's phone (she also has the App) and get the same error screen. Some time ago they stopped listing the game at the App Store and I suspect they have now disabled the online feature. It's a shame, as it was a very fun addictive game. I searched and searched to no avail, but I can't find any mention of it. This surprises me also, as there always seemed to be a ton of people online playing.

Display on HP DV6000 is scrambled.


Your problem is the screen itself, sounds like your graphics chip is fine by being able to use an external monitor. Change out the display, but also check the flat data cable on the back of the screen and make sure it just didn't slip out of the socket.
