LCD screen anomaly

  jack 10:02 26 Dec 05

Very occasionally on switch on of the system the LCD screen comes on bright white with black horizontal bands and vetical bands of colour.
A push of the restart button and all returns to normal.

As stated it is a rare occurance and when it has happened in the past I considered all the usual possibilities- Software and Hardware of the computer.
When it happened on Friday last, it occured to me that since that last time the machine has under gone a total rebuild - MoBo /Graphics/ O/S
So all the theories are out of the window.
Any ideas any one?

What are the make, model and specs of the lappy?
As much information as you can give, please.

Methedrine- Not a lappie.
Note I said a rebbuild.
It's a desktop
Rebuilt my self
Formerly AMD 1.4-MSI MoBO Etc.

Now AMD 3000 64bit / MSI Graphics
The Screen - is the same - Hansol H530

Me thinks, it's one of the quirks of the 64 AMD and Windows drivers etc.

Has your LCD got a "reset to factory defaults" or similar option in the set up menus. if so might be worth a try, also have you switched from a VGA connection to a DVI or the opposite, if so might be worth reverting back.

Sounds a bit like instability, ie. lead trouble. Try rearranging the leads to avoid possible interference from one to another and re-check the seating of your graphics card.

Dont be shamed 'Meth' put it down to mince pies.
Wood chip - as mentioned - an infrqueent occurance and since the last time all hardware/software has changed.

I'll keep this going -it is for curiosity sake really
not a problem
Does it happen to other screens one wonders?

Now that is technical =switching from VGA to DVI?
Nah - this is a bog standard VGA - nothing to switch
