Guest Trevor Goodley Posted November 11, 2007 Report Share Posted November 11, 2007 Hi, I have a Fujitsu Siemens Amilo M3438G with 1Gb memory and GeForce Go 6800 video card. It's about 18 months old (only 1 year warranty in UK). Recently the power supply and keyboard needed replacing and now it looks like the video card is playing up! I get artifacts on the screen - i.e. repeated rows and lines of pixel patterns. This is particularly bad in high res. modes. If I remove the video driver it is much better - i.e. just a few - usually just on the shortcuts on the desktop. Maybe they have been corrupted? With the driver installed, after a while the screen may start to go blank - then return periodicly. Sometimes I get the BOD and the laptop reboots. This never happens with the video driver uninstalled. The video driver hasn't changed since the laptop was new. I have run a diagnostic test on the main memory for 10 hours with no errors found. Does anyone think it could be the videop card at fault. Or perhaps just the video memory? :) It does sound, from this forum that they are prone to overheating! many thanks, Trev.
