Computer Monitor Video Viewing Help!!!

by stackinemu03 / March 22, 2010 10:00 AM PDT

I just recently rebuilt my computer and went from windows xp to windows 7. Before rebuilding my computer my monitor was working fine. I did a complete rebuild of everything (motherboard, ram, harddrive, OS) Only thing i kept was the case.

Currently in my new system the monitor works fine except when I try to view any sort of video. It doesnt matter what program I use the same issue happens. I have an Acer AL1916W. When trying to view video the screen video image starts moving all over the screen even outside the video program window.

My system has a 1TB Western Digital 7200rpm harddrive with SATA, 4gb DDR3 1600 Ram, Geforce 6150SE nforce 430 on board graphics.

Sounds Like An Updated Video Driver Is Needed..
by Grif Thomas Forum moderator / March 22, 2010 10:16 AM PDT

You'll need to install the latest Windows 7 compatible driver for your video card.. If there isn't one available, try the latest Vista driver for the card.

And make sure you set the appropriate default optimium screen resolution for your monitor. It should help.

Hope this helps.

I updated the driver like you said and the problem with video is gone. However now when I am in IE and typing the screen blinks after each letter I type

And Were All Other Hardware Drivers Installed Correctly..

In reply to: Thanks

You make no mention of installing the correct, Windows 7 compatible motherboard/chipset drivers, audio drivers, ethernet drivers, etc.. If you haven't done so, please give it a try.

Tried switching in a different keyboard?

Hope this helps.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
