Question about HEWLETT-PACKARD HP G56-122US Notebook

1 Answer

I was checking my email and all of a sudden the screen changed and got very blotchy, and the colors are wrong. I ran the trouble shooter and checked the display and color settings and they are all fine. I tried sutting it off and turning it back on but the problem still exists. Everything is grainy and the colors shift. I was crystal clear with no issues and suddenly was all messed up. Any ideas what happened and how to fix it. Resolution did not change.

If you didnt change/update anything with both Windows and your drivers, then I'd go with the graphics chip problem. This is actually a common problem with laptops (especially HP). But to be on the safe side, try an external monitor to see if the problem lies in the LCD, or it's really a motherboard issue.
If it turns out that it's the motherboard, then there are two solutions: a new motherboard (aprox. $500) or reflow of the graphics chip. Either way, for your sake, I hope I'm wrong. :)

All of a sudden I'm only seeing the last two days of emails. I didn't change any settings so not sure what's wrong

The first thing is restart your computer from total shut down. After if you still can't get your mail check your Internet connection in settings or double click the icon at the bottom right side of screen to see if it is connected.if it is then contact your email server.i have had times when my mail was down but not for days. Good Luck.

Samsung plasma with blotchy screen

I've seen this type of issue before. It is probably the screen, I've heard of people taking it to a repair shop and getting the plasma "recharged". Probably worth checking out as it would be cheaper than a new TV.

Hello Everyone i have a problem with my acer aspire 5920, first of all it had a bit of an impact to the lid. When power button was pressed it would power up and straight back off again, i discovered when...

I have never had this problem, but what I am thinking it could be is all of the primary colors that are used have gone out besides the red color. It might not be in the graphics card but something in the screen that has gone wrong, you might need to go into the computer and reset some like the color balance. That is a very weird problem, sorry for your trouble, I hope I helped in some way.

After having our tv in storage for aver a year, now it has a green shadow to it. What could be wrong/

Not sure I understand what you mean by green shadow. I would check the fluid in the green and blue CRTS and verify they are clear. I would do this if the green color seemed fuzzy or blotchy looking on the screen.

When looking on a blank screen, do you see any arc lines of either green, blue or red? If so, you would need to lower the screen voltage for that particular CRT.

Color gets blotchy, then goes screen goes black

The issue is with the color wheel but you have to replace the engine inorder to get one. The cost would exceed the value.

The color wheel is the first item that should spin when power is pressed. It could be the color whel. I hate to guess as you could end up spending money needlessle. I suggest you go to the link I am posting as they have the trouble shooter manual for 29.99 and they will email it to you and it takes you step by step to explain what the problem is.just click on HD50LPW175 in the RCA section and thats the trouble shooter for your model. Cause I hate to say what it could be cause that could cost alot of money buying parts that you dont need. Heres the link.
