20 Most Recent Insignia D300a PC Desktop Questions & Answers

Realty LTD, the following depends on your company's policies but if you are allowed, first thing is to check for driver updates in both Windows Update option and device manager. For Window Updates, Control Panel>System and Security>Windows Update. You may see links for important and optional updates. Check in both and look for specific hardware related drivers, not windows security and os updates. If there are any only update those. Next check Device manager. Control Panel>System and Security>Administrative Tools>Computer Management>Device Manager(on left panel). If there are any yellow yield signs and a carrot is open, right click it and select update driver. If none of this works please clarify further. Is the sound like a fan? Do you feel accompanying heat? Does it get loud only when using specific applications or is it all the time? Things like that.

You have set the resolution or refresh rate of your display adapter to a value which is too high than what is supported by your monitor.
In order to fix this, you have to do the following:
1. Reboot your computer & press F8 to boot into Safe Mode.
2. Once in Safe Mode, open Device Manager.
3. Remove the display adapter device driver form Device Manager.
4. Reboot your computer again. Windows will boot up normally & will detect the display adapter. It will prompt you for the device driver for the display adapter.
5. Use the CD that came with your display adapter to install the device driver. Once done, your problem is fixed.

You need to go to the website of the cards company and download the drivers for the card. If it is a PCI card then make sure that it is seated properly on your motherboard. If you switched the card to a computer with a newer operating system then it might not be compatible.

I don't have one of these, but from looking at the picture then I am guessing there is probably a couple on the back. They should be up the right hand side, with all the other ports. There will be some on the back somewhere.

Hope this helps.

May I know since when you are facing this issue? The symptomps you have described tells that it might be an issue with the operating system of the pc. looks like you are using windows xp in your pc. You can try running a system restore. Start>All Programs>Accesories>System tools>System Restore. Then you will get the window of system restore and you will have click on the option that says Restore My Computer to an earlier date/earlier point in time. Once u click on that it will show u the calender. If u are sure about the point in time from which u r facing this issue look for the date. But you will be able to restore ur pc only to those dates that are marked in bold. Click on that date and keep hitting next until it starts the restoration. If it does not help then try this. Click on start>Control panel>Add or remove programs. once the add or remove programs window comes up on the left hand column u will get an option called Add/Remove Windows Components. On the list that comes up u will get the options for Internet Explorer and Outlook Express. Uncheck them and restart the pc. And follow the same process to put check marks on those two options. IF this does not help most likely u will have reformat the hard drive and reinstall windows. If u dont want to run the format then u can use another browser like mozilla firefox and use another email client like Windows live mail and u can download them free from web. http://www.mozilla.com/en-US/firefox/ is the link to download mozilla firefox and http://explore.live.com/windows-live-mail?os=other is the link to download the latest version of live mail.
