luminous screen

November 27, 2009 at 16:37:14
Specs: Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium, 2.001 GHz / 2045 MB
Can you help?
My laptop is only just over a year old.
Very often now as im using it the screen will suddenly go strange and its difficult to see.
If i reboot it goes back to normal, but its happening too often now and its a nuisance.
Its sort of luminous with bright green fuzzy shading to pictures and screen.
(tried to copy pic but it shows as normal on other pc's)

Thanks
Fran

Have you already scanned your pc for viruses?

To make sure, the it has nothing to do with your installed windows system, you can download a LiveCD from the internet, burn it to cd and start your pc from this cd.
Then check out, whether the problem persists.

This sounds like hardware fault. Firstly, when the fault appears, plug in an external monitor. If the display is ok on external monitor but not on the built in screen, then the LCD panel is either faulty or the cable from the LCD screen to the main board is not properly connected. If both show the distorted display it could be faulty graphics chip.

My laptop is free from Viruses Paulsep, so ok on that score.
Bazzab will try out your tip next time the screen goes all funny.

Thanks to you both

sounds like the video drivers may be corrupt, but because you didn't say which brand the laptop was you will have to find them yourself
God Luck

The screen "went" again there.
I unplugged from charger lead and it was lots worse. I then plugged in another charger lead from another Toshiba I have, left it plugged in a min then pulled lead out.
Screen images went back to normal &
I got the following message on screen.........................
Display driver has stopped responding & has recovered.

maybe a bad power supply or battery. Have you tried removing the laptop battery and then plugging in the power supply and trying?

As I mentioned, plug in an external monitor. Leave it plugged in then when the fault shows on the internal LCD, look at the external monitor, is it ok? Chances are high that its the connecting cable between the LCD and the system board. Having worked on Toshiba laptops, this is quite common. It wont be the driver, nor will it be any type of malware. It is a hardware problem!
