Why is my screen blurry and lines undulate on the sides? It also keeps the glitter!

Why is my screen blurry and lines undulate on the sides? It also keeps the glitter!

Is your very large monitor, like an old TV or flat, as perhaps a few inches thick?  If it is very deep (front to back), you have an old style monitor, and they need to be demagnetised every now and then. Look on the monitor for the menu button and navigate until you find an icon like a horseshoe with a bar slash through it (or like a magnet) and select it.  All wavy and colorful display for one minute and then went back to normal. Also, make sure that all the cables between the monitor and your computer are firmly connected at both ends, even if you have a thin screen.

If you have a laptop, try to turn the screen and see if the blur changes.  If so, you might have a connector loose inside and may need to be considered at a repair shop. =(

Best luck!

(There is a small chance it is a result of burn; made me know if any of them help you, or that they do not apply.)

    You can do it from the control panel as well.

    This would make CD player as default PDF Viewer.

  • Screen flashing horizontal lines after replacing the RAM

    Hello world

    Today, I replaced the original 2 2 GB RAM each with 2 other 4 GB each (Kingston) for better performance.

    I have a Macbook Pro end 2011 15 ", IOS 9.3.1.

    I opened the computer it vacuum cleaner very carefully, with the lowest power and then I removed the two RAM.

    I'm not new, the machine worked perfectly for 20 minutes, then the screen went black (electricity was running in it, I could see some lights on the bottom), I did close it with the button, turn it on and horizontal lines appeared.

    I turn again and nothing has changed. I replaced the new memory with the 'old' and I still have horizontal lines that cross the monitor (white, grey, black).

    Any idea of what is happening and how to fix it?

    Thank you in advance!

  • Satellite Pro M70-113: cannot install Vista graphics driver and lines appears on the display


    I have satellite pro m70-113 with ati x 700 graphics card.

    When I installed vista, he installed the default drivers for the x 700 'mobility radeon x 700-microsft Corp.-WDDM '.

    I've updated the display drivers for vista, that released by toshiba 2 days back... but the driver is not updated to the latest version, only the catalyst control center is installed when I ran the update of the driver of toshiba.

    The problem is that whenever I put my laptop in standby or hibernation and resume... the screen shows thin lines vertical/horizontal... and I can't use the laptop... and I have to still put the system to sleep, just to hope that it is not blocking the screen this time...

    This problem is 25% of the time only when resume...

    This problem is not resolved by the update driver for toshiba has released a few days back... as is not installs the drivers (I can't even install the drivers with the option "update drivers" of Device Manager and select file driver update from toshiba.) It says windows find new driver, but could not install the driver... Contact the manufacturer...)

    This snap shows the problem... : http://img360.imageshack.us/img360/2783/12042007366copyod1.jpg

    I updated the driver from an earlier version of catalyst, as it is downloaded from the ati site before that toshiba has released the update... this time it updates some 8. XXX version but the screen problem remains...

    Second, this update of the driver leaves me not sleep my system... the process starts for a sleep, but go back to the locked screen without making sleep ever... so I have no choice to get stuck with the default Windows... drivers having only the problem of the screen... and not the problem of sleep...

    Anyone here with a solution?

    Thank you.


    I have Satellite M70-159 and I noticed the same thing several times. For most Vista works well but I don't remember cases in which the described problem occurs. I was just curious on M70 Vista and have had no time to intensive testing.

    Anyway, it will be interesting to know if you have already updated the BIOS to the latest version 5.10. If this is not the case to do this and watch carefully if the problem persists.

  • Switching between microphone and line-in in the Realltek Sound Manager

    Now I know where the Realtek Sound Manager, and I can control the parameters of the microphone and speakers.
    But how can I switch between microphone and line-in?
    At the moment I don't see a line of component option snap at all. Is it because it's a kind of auto detect and the opportunity every time I connect something?
    Everyone knows this, or has some experience in this regard?
    Cordially in advance

    Sorry but I don't understand what exactly you want.
    You have built in mic or you can use the external microphone connected to the mic-in port.
    When the external microphone is connected a resident will be disabled.

    The question is: what do you want exactly and for what purposes? Please explain what is the reason for this switching between mic and line-in port?

    The only time where you are looking to your pixels real images is when you view a 100% actual pixels. At any other level of zoom view your a different image is displayed a sized image did use the information to pixels in your image. The fact zoom scale is not the best who can made to give a quick overview.  As you see when you use size transform or free picture.  Did you ever notice that whet you use transform to change there the size of a layer that allows to improve the quality of the image you see inside the transformation encompassing when you press on enter when you get the right size and not want to commit the transformation. When you post processing Photoshop scales the image using your default interpolation method or the interpolation in the bar of conversion options. Images look better some zoom percentages then others because of the way the zoom scale is made.

  • Why is my screen blurry

    I was using my computer and graphics and words has become fuzzy or blurred, making it difficult to watch and read

    First of all, make sure that you have not set the color resolution or hertz at high or incompatible with the monitor. If this is the case then I would see if you can get another monitor to the computer. This would allow then to determin if it is a hardware or software problem. If this is not one problem with another monitor its likely to be of material.

  • Why is my screen black and blue instead of black Uni Vista?

    This is most obvious on the task bar and the empty spaces. Sarcelles is now blueish.  Everything has a touch of blue and dark. The address bar is not really white but whitish with a blue tint.  even the grey parts like the scroll bar have this bluish tint.  Please note that this isn't a problem of customization, as is a Vista color scheme that changed all of a sudden without input from me.  Restore points has not been reinstated to the color scheme of Vista (also in blue)

  • ios10 notifications when the screen locked and I'm on the phone

    This must be a bug. Nothing else makes sense as to why you program this function in iOS10.

    I rely on notifications for my work in the newspaper industry. I use so many apps like Twitter, Facebook, TXT Message, etc.

    When my phone goes into auto-lock mode and goes black, I still get notifications. The screen comes back to life and I get a notification banner for txt, twitter updates and facebook messages. I can't put my phone to stay unlocked for always as the longest option available to me is 5 minutes.

    Here's the big question. When I'm on the phone and the screen goes black, I stop get notifications. I hear the notification sound and the screen lights up to show my wallpaper, but the banner of notification never appears. I have colleagues who have exactly the same problem. If it is not unique to my phone. I confirmed this option to occur in several other people in my office.

    Please tell me that this can be fixed somehow. This is a feature I must have. So and if well I would buy an Android, if this is the new normal in iOS10,

    Tony in Toronto

    Can anyone confirm that this is the same on all iphones after ios10?

    This after I upgraded the family windows XP Edition with service pack 2. When he was still using the previous service pack thing like that happens

    Now, what is the problem and how to solve it.

    If you have installed WinXP SP2, you could not possibly have had a functional antivirus installed. See...

    Cleaning a compromised system

    Personal data backup (which none should be considered 100% reliable at this point) then format the HARD disk and do a clean install of Windows.  Please note that a repair installation (upgrade AKA on-site) won't fix this!

    HOW to do a clean install of Windows XP: see method 1 and http://michaelstevenstech.com/cleanxpinstall.html#steps in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/978307

    Once installed the clean, you will have the equivalent of a "new computer" in order to take care of everything on the next page before connecting the machine to the internet or one local network (i.e. other computers) otherwise and before using a flash drive or the SD card that is not brand new, or has not been freshly formatted:
