Question about IBM NetVista PC Desktop

1 Answer

Monitor screen shows all sorts of colors in line patterns.

Anytime I download any new games, or in this case it is Shaw's security system, the system boots up fine, but as you try to access the security system program, it will start up but then the screen goes into these line patterns and your pretty much doomed until you hard boot.

Could this be the video card?  If so, can you tell me if the video card in a NetVista is separate from the motherboard?  And if I need to replace it, what would I replace it with?

Thanks,
McTrace

With the information I gathered IBM netvista does not features a video card, it is inbuilt. So it shares your system memory. just open the sysyetm chassis and take out the RAM module and clean the contact edge with a rubber eraser (pencil eraser). Re insert the RAM module and try again.

If the problem persists. try changing your memeory module(s).

The purpose of RAM is to allow your CPU faster access to programs. If your CPU had to go to the Hard Drive anytime it wanted a program your computer would run very, very slowly. So for example, when you boot your system up a significant ammount of ram is designated to your devices needed to boot up your operating system video graphics

The primary role of RAM is to copy the operating system in to itself and then load the Operating System so that you can work RAM is only used to run any desktop base applications, such as games, Microsoft Word applications, games such as desktop games and pc games, and browser based so any programs you have loading at start up will be needed by computers RAM

Mozilla Firefox just stopped working, Internet Explorer barely works. I have a lot of PC games thru Big Fish and cannot access any. Cannot get into my security to allow access............what to do?


Hi navy_brat214,

Have you tried booting into Safemode with Networking and see if you can access all of your games and files?

also from there you can try and maybe download Firefox and get IE back up and running by trying to set IE back to Defaults to see if it will work again in normal mode same as for the Firefox that you have.

Also if you have an external Hard Drive I would also Suggest that you back up any personal Data to it since this could also be a windows issue, you can try and repair windows but still I suggest backing up first before windows stops from booting up.

In Safemode also try uninstalling any Anti Virus programs that you may have on the machine and see if it will boot into windows without having issues with Firefox from working.

You can also try doing a system restore in windows before the issue happened this sometimes works.

Re-installing Windows will always be the last option, if all else fails.

I hope that this works.

Thank you for choosing Fixya,

You can access google earth from any browser.
If you are having problems with your shortcuts, you may have the security centre virus.
Try a full scan with malwarebytes.
Try a system restore if you do not have a virus infection.
programs / accessories / system tools / system restore.
Or access system restore from F8 menu on boot up

I can't sign-in to bebo, when i try it says this link is broken, how can this happen?


This is definately your parents or someone else putting Security software on your network. This will stop you from viewing sites that the individual has deemed "inapropriate". The problem with this is that people are given the option to block "Web based chat" or "online gaming" and don't pick particular sites. This leads to perfectly fine sites being blocked. You should talk to whoever controls your network. Also use www.ebuddy.com to access your msn if its blocked.

X-BOX 360 not playing games


Are you sure that in the system settings the xbox is set to Load game instead of boot to dashboard? This will be located on the blade on the far right of the dashboard. If no help, try this: First, a stupid step - Make sure a compatible game disc is in the xbox, and turn it off. If it continues to boot to dashboard upon powering up, you could always try removing the system updates by: 1. Turn the console off 2. Press and hold the small sync button on the front of the console (the one you use to connect new controllers) 3. Turn on the console whilst still holding the sync button 4. By the time it has booted to the dashboard, the updates should be cleared. As the first version of the dashboard did not have the option to boot to dashboard by default, game discs should start normally now. If this is the case, feel free to re-download the updates from xbox live. Hope this helps!
