Hi there,

I have a Lenono 3000 N100 Laptop, which i purchased around 7 months ago online.

Two days ago when using the laptop, the display started to shake, and a dead line eventually appeared across the screen (horizontal) and split the display in half, pushing the windows xp taskbar out of view.

If i reboot the machine, or power off the display, then the display goes back to normal, and i went a whole day without having any problems, but then it re-appears again.

Obviously I am going to contact lenovo and see if i am covered under the warranty, but has anyone here had a similar issue?

I take it my display is about to die? or could it be a problem with the graphics card, which is Nvida go 7300 (64mb) 256 (overall/shared)

Hi Franky!

Personally I'd send the laptop back to the place you purchased it, sounds like a serious problem - screen problem. In such a short time period a laptop shouldn't be behaving like that, get it sent back before the warranty runs out!! I wouldn't bother trying to fix it this will probably void your warranty.
If all else fails, hit the reset button.

Well Firekracker, I am going to make calls tomorrow to the place i purchased this from, as like you say, it shouldn't be happening so soon, and this laptop has been sitting on a desk, couldn't have treated it any better and it thanks me by trying to commit suicide LOL

Now I have to remove all my data and put it back to system state, as I don't want the retailer to see my stamp collection images (wink wink) LOL

Cheers

Better to do a low level format then just restoring the computer. You can use a utility from the manufacture of your hard drive in the laptop. Then use the restore disk to reinstall everything. This will make sure NOBODY sees your "stamp collection"


Edit: Removed possible dangerous link (research showed manufactures utility better) and spell checked

I would suggest first downloading a new version of the graphics driver from http://www.nvidia.com Then, uninstall the old driver, and install the freshly downloaded one.
