Strange snowy specks on Screen

Hi, this is my first time posting here and I have a bit of a problem. I've noticed it recently when I started seriously multitasking but noticed it immediately when I decided to play second life. Everytime I have something multimedia (like BSplayer or some sort of game runnning) I have these strange specks that look like snow you'd see on TV on my monitor. Sometimes if I minimize the window and maximize it again, it goes away but now it's happening with more frequency until I have to restart my computer. It covers everything and it seems as like it freezes a partial screen or something. I've updated drivers and bios but the problem continues. Any ideas on how to fix? Thanks!

If you have a known brand name video adapter, you can attempt to update from their site rather then the Toshiba Site, but I cannot guarantee that it will work since laptop graphics chips have custom drivers made that will not work with generic drivers

Checking timing chain


They are a bit noisy sometimes, hopefully it's nothing serious, good solid bikes those so you should be good.
Check you have the correct oil in there, if your running a thin oil, it may increase the noise and wearing.
Try this, when its parked up and idling cold (when you start it up in the morning) get a screwdriver or somthing similar place the metal part of the screwdriver on the engine where you think the noise is coming from, then put your ear on the handle, doing this you will be able to pin point exactly where the noise is coming from buy moving the screwdriver around the casting also you can really hear her tick.
do it again when she's hot noting the difference of any. If it continues to get noisier, strip her down and have a look in there, could be just the tensioner/guides.
good luck

Optio X visual defects


I've not seen any such defects on my Optio X, although I don't use flash much. The some-300 photos I've taken so far are completely clean. Sounds like dust on the CCD. Might warrant a return to Pentax.
