Hi all, this has happened several times now in the last few days, but I've turned on my computer with a dialogue box open that says my computer bluescreened at some point. I never have actually seen the bluescreen yet, but I have had the problem of my
computer seemingly failing to boot up when I try to turn it on ('starting windows' screen comes up, followed by black screen. Only option is then to button-shutdown the laptop.) I can still restart the computer in safe mode when this happens. Also a third
issue, my laptop's display has been acting up lately as well, where the screen starts to become a flurry of checkerboard patterns:
So my question is, are these things all related somehow? They've all started recently. Or... is my computer just very screwed up in a number of ways right now. I have the .dmp file of the latest bluescreen event if anyone wants to see it, I don't know
how to add it to the post though...
Sorry to hear you're having artifacts! Well, at this point, I am going to go ahead and say that this is an issue with the video card (hardware-wise), and not a driver issue. I'd say it's a driver issue, but we've been left & right with different versions,
including rolling back to early version(s), so I don't believe it is.
I would at this point go ahead and contact the manufacturer and let them know you are getting artifacts, and different display drivers aren't helping so you'd like a repair (or depending on warranty and age) replacement if possible.
