OK well, every like 2 hours my laptop screen just goes blank except for the mouse but the mouse moves at a very slow speed and i can press ctrl-alt-delete but it takes about 10 minutes for it to come up then im stuck on what to do cos i cant use task manager (the screen is blank) i cant log off (it stays in slow motion) and i have to hold the power button to make the pc shut down and restart.

This has been happening for about 2 months now and is really annoying now especially when im in teh middle of something important it mainly happens when im using some high graphics things like games but it can happen at random times too.

I have asked on yahoo answers and i got some good results and the "black outs" have been happening less often but they're still happening.

I have windows vista ultimate
1.6ghz CPU
1gb ram
128mb gfx card
Any help? Thanks Smile

PS, ffs dont say get rid of vista thats the problem, i have been using vista for over a year and its fine its just something i must have messed with accidently and i dont know what Pfft

well, if you haven't already done so, you should try running a full scan with whatever virus scanner you have, cuz the only thing i can think of that would do that is a virus. if you can't find anything, you may end up having to backup all your data and format your harddrive. i can't really think of anything else to help, sorry.

Are you sure that the source of your current problems is not:

? For that matter, why didn't your current scanning tools pick up these "errors" and "alerts"? What are you using for AV and AS?

One thing that i think could help would be to go into the bios and make everything go back into the default so this way if something had been changed you can get it back to the way things were.

Hope it helps

Simple sollution, 1) You can either try to restore your computer to 20 months from now, or 2) is to wipe and reload.

It may not be anything truly major, but you might have a lot of small messes. Although you could get some cleaning stuff, you still need to do this, and on the next restore look into like: AVG, spybots and things of that nature, to help maintain your computer.

It is one thing to work a computer, but another thing to maintain it.

heres an tool that is like the taskmanager, but it gives you security ratings on each process.

http://www.neuber.com/taskmanager/

run that, and kill anything that gets a high level rating.

go start>run>cmd

and run the 'msconfig' utility. check out your startup processes. if there are lots there, that could be slowing you down and whatnot. if the process that was dangerous is on here, remove it. and before you wipe, remove everything from that list and restart. none of the processes are necessary for windows to run (but some can speed you up and whatnot)

thats what i would do.

peace

Why the hell was this thread bumped? The bumping post was about the BIOS, which is utter and complete horse-crap. The OP has probably resolved the problem by now, since it has been 3 months. Leave the thread dead.
