I am having a display problem with my Averatec 2200. The displayed screen does not fit to the entire LCD screen. There is aproximately three inches of black space of the right side of the screen and a 1/2 inches of jarbled display at the bottom. This has happen several time before, but I have been able to fix it by updating the driver. This has now ceased to work.

Please help.

Email me if you need more info.

Thanks.

I'm not sure but I think it is VIA/S 3G DeltaChrome IGP.

I'm not sure if I checked in the right place. That was under the heading chip type.

unfortunately you're limited as to fixes. how much ram does the laptop have and can support?

I would hazard a guess that it is one of two things.

1. integrated video failing

2. screen failure.

I can support 980 ram. I think.

I do not think it is screen failure because sometimes it would work after following the troubleshooter and updating the driver. I could be wrong.

What should I do next.

I'm looking up that manufacturer and checking resources for that model.

http://www.cpuid.com/pcwizard.php download and run that and post what it lists for the graphics.

I'm going to assume you're running the latest drivers for it?

the link I posted will get you the latest drivers. if those do not work. then either the screen is failing or the IGP is failing.
