Hi.
If you know the cause of the problem, you already solved half of it.
Make sure you got the right Drivers, there are many Geforce models like ( Geforce 4 series, Geforce 6 series etc).
First find out the model you have, then visit Nvidea website and find the newest version of the right driver and download it, it is for free and you don't have to register or anything like that, they have everything you need, except if your Graphics Adapter is to all, you can get tech support etc.

Hope this help.
Good luck.

    Sorry for the error.

    I meant( Graphics adapter is too old.)



    I forgot:

    you can do a system Restore to the date just before you installed the drivers, by going to - START - ALL PROGRAMS - ACCESSORIES - SYSTEM TOOLS - click on SYSTEM RESTORE, follow instructions.



    Thanks

How do you get Windows 10 free update from Windows 8 to operate the screen saver?


How to customize Screensaver in Windows 10
RECOMMENDED: Click here to fix Windows errors and optimize system performance
There were times when computer monitors used to suffer from image burn-in issues caused by showing the same image for a long period of time and people used to install a screen saver to avoid the issue. The computer screens today no longer face the burn-in issues, but people still use the screen saver on their computer systems for fun's sake. Windows 10 comes with a six built-in screensavers. Let us see how you can customize screensavers in Windows 10.
Read: Are Screensavers necessary and still needed.
Screensaver Settings in Windows 10 You can get to your screen saver settings directly by typing 'Screen Saver' in the taskbar search box in the lower left corner of your system. Click on 'Change Screen Saver' and it will take you the Screen Saver settings right away where you can adjust the settings according to your own preferences.
Alternatively, right-click on your Windows 10 desktop, and select Personalize to open Personalization settings. Next click on Lock screen in the left pane.

Scroll down the Lock Screen settings and click on Screen Saver Settings. The following window will open. Here you can adjust the settings according to your preferences.

By default, Windows 10 offers the following six screensavers - 3D Text, Blank, Bubbles, Mystify, Photos and Ribbons - nothing new here. Select the screensaver from the drop-down menu and change its defaults Settings, if any are available.
For instance, the 3D Text screensaver lets you customize the text as well as a few other options.

The Photos screensaver lets you display your favorite photos as a screen saver.

Once you are done, click on save and exit.

Create Screen Saver Settings Shortcut

If you access the screensaver settings frequently, you can create its desktop shortcut as follows: However, it is easy to change the settings but if you change your screen saver often, it would be better to create a Screen Saver Settings shortcut on your desktop.
To create the shortcut, you have to right-click on your desktop and click on New > Shortcut.
Type control desk.cpl,,@screensaver in the location space in the wizard.
Click Next and give a name to your shortcut. Click Next and you are done. Give it a suitable icon of your choice.
Use this shortcut to change or adjust your screen saver settings whenever you want, quickly.
You can also create a shortcut to launch or change Screensaver state for a specific screensaver.

Hello everyone. I have a Nokia 2730 Classic. I bought this phone on april with version 7.70. A week ago, I updated my phone via USB to version 10.45. After update, I have some problems, that annoys me....


This will happen if the update is not ended completely or any mismatch with previous version.Since you have brought this phone in April you will be having the warranty period.So contact Nokia service centre they will flash the mobile and update with the latest firmware without any charges.

HELP!! my computer screen keeps going black when i play games :(


There is probably something wrong with the card. You updated the drivers
after the problem ,,right.

You have 3GB ram so that is ok. Your cpu and video card are just fine,
so the most possible would be the card is failing.

http://www.ozone3d.net/benchmarks/fur/



I have posted a stability test and a benchmark/ stress test for you to check the card, download the one for your OS, xp, vista.

If the card is going, it will act up when you test the card.

Aspire, desktop: Screen will randomly go blank, if I turn off monitor and turn back on it says no signal, keys are locked up as well. If there is audio when it does this the audio will start skipping...


have you checked your gforce for power failure? check your powersource for the type. if it is not over 500 Watt.... That is a big problem with system function. If you are using a newer Updated machine, you should always keep up to electrical fashion or your machine will most definitely do "Funky Stuff" quote.
This is also interfering with your soundcard on your motherboard, and if this continues without being checked, your motherboard may blow.

Driver upgrade


Hi papaduds,

I see what you mean, have you tried any other screensavers besides the aquarium one? It's also possible that the screensaver itself is the problem. Otherwise if the problem with the screensaver happened a couple of days ago, you can still try to do a Windows System Restore, and bring the computer back to a previous state when it was still working fine. To do this you need to goto START then ALL PROGRAMS then ACCESSORIES to SYSTEM TOOLS then select SYSTEM RESTORE, just click NEXT then choose a bold/highlighted date that you can restore the system too and just click NEXT until the end and it should do the restore process.

Anyway you can download the updated drivers at this link:

Hope this helps!

Peace! :)

Genius Look312p picture freezes


Normal 0 There are a number of things that can cause the camera to freeze up the computer or the camera.
First I’d check to see how much memory is installed in the computer. It takes additional memory to operate the camera.
Hope this helps. Bud
