Display turns off and on


Do you have a video card? Sometimes when it is overheating (video card fan not working) it does that.

Otherwise try another video cable, maybe borrow from a friend.

Laptop or desktop computer overheating? Follow these tips to solve the problem


If you think your computer or laptop is overheating, follow these tips to solve the problem:

1) To confirm that overheating is the problem, install CPUID's Hardware Monitor (free download here):
http://www.cpuid.com/hwmonitor.php
Install Hardware Monitor and run it. The temperature of your CPU should be lower than 70 C for a laptop (lower than 60 C for a desktop PC). The temperature of your video card should be lower than 60, even if you're running a complex 3D game. The temperature of your HD depends on your manufacturer, but it should never be higher than 45 C (55 C for a 10,000 rpm driver)

2) To keep computer heat as low as possible, clean up your laptop or desktop regularly, removing dust and dirt. Remove the computer cover and use a compressed air can to blow the dirt out. Also, take care of verifying that the fan(s) move easily.

3) If you have a desktop computer, avoid placing it directly on the floor, since they will collect more dust thsi way. Place it on your desk. Also, avoid putting it inside any enclosure. Allow at least 3 inches between the sides of the case and a wall to allow plenty of air circulation.

4) If you have a laptop, avoid using it on top of any fabric (blanket, bed, pillow, etc). This blocks most of the airflow, causing overheating.

5) Laptops are not optimally designed for heavy gaming, which stresses your CPU and video card, producing very large amounts of heat. In other words, if your laptop overheats while playing 3d games, accept that this may be just normal for your machine... or play your games on a desktop PC.

6) Overclocking your CPU, GPU and/or FSB will produce much more heat than normal. To avoid the extra heat, do not overclock.

Little Square color blotches


The most common reason for this is your video card overheating. You did not post the make & model of your computer, but if you have a separate video card installed check it for overheating. Pull the side panel off the computer to inspect. If your card has a cooling fan make sure it is still working (it may have failed) and not clogged with dust. If you have integrated video (the video "card" is part of the motherboard, not separate) check for dust & clogging in the vents. This is especially important if you have overclocked the GPU (video card processor) or the CPU, many gamers do this.
If you are still having problems, I hang out at www.suggest-a-fix.com, a free help forum. Post in there and we can go deeper. This forum is just not set up for in-depth communication.

Desktop wont turn on. two short beeps then one long beep over and over. All the cable are conected checked the power supply, changed it, still the same


Explanation: The BIOS is unable to access the video system in order to write any error messages to the screen.
Diagnosis: This is usually caused by a problem with the video card, or the memory on the video card. It can also be a motherboard issue.
Recommendation:
Troubleshoot the video card.: If the video card has a fan on it , clean it and make sure it moves freely. It may be causing an overheating problem.
If the video card is not at fault, troubleshoot the motherboard.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonial for my response.

Thanks, Joe

This is a typical issue with this computer due to overheating. Its a design fault that HP is not willing to acknowledge. You can replace the graphics card with an original NVIDIA GEFORCE GO 7600 if you can find one. Unfortunately, the overheating problem will still be there, and your new card may not last long. Alternatively you can disconnect the graphics card, and connect the monitor to the slot where the card was. The 3D graphics capability will no longer be there. But for everyday use it may be fine.

Video freezes on hp e9105z on a random and intermittent basis Nvidia gt 120 video card


Test these three things:

1 - GPU could be overheating, can you swapp your video cards with a known working card?

2 - PSU could be bad, again try swapping with known working PSU, makes sure card is recieveing proper input power.

3 - I have seen a bad ram module do this before also, but, try reseating the RAM, run memtest86 for errors
