First of all my system (or rather my neighbors system)
Acer Aspire 9410-2829
Windows Vista Home Premium 32bit
CPU: Intel T2080 1.73GHz
RAM: 2G (2038 MB)
Graphics: Intel Graphics Media Accelerator 950 ... What it says when I goto information on the Graphics Properties:
Report Date: 06/05/2012 Report Time[hr:mm:ss]: 20:52:04 Driver Version: 188.8.131.527 Operating System: Windows Vista (TM) Home Premium* , (6.0.6000) Default Language: English DirectX* Version: 10.0 Physical Memory: 2037 MB Minimum Graphics Memory: 8 MB Maximum Graphics Memory: 256 MB Graphics Memory in Use: 109 MB Processor: x86 family 6 Model 14 Stepping 12 Processor Speed: 1728 MHZ Vendor ID: 8086 Device ID: 27A2 Device Revision: 03
Anyway, the issue is that there are random moving pixels on the screen, that will range from mildly annoying to incredibly disabling the use of the computer.
This does not (as I am being told) happen all the time, but often enough. From what I have seen in recreating it, it only starts after the initial boot load (through the windows start up screen) but will appear at the login screen. It will continue going on, but I am able to "work around it" and make it less with changing some graphics options. I did update the driver using Windows automatic utility, I did not go to Intel to download their latest driver though.
Here is a screen shot of what it looks like typically off the boot:
If I change the color settings from 32M to 16M it gets better, but still persists. I thought maybe it was the laptop screen going out, so I hooked up a working Monitor to it (LG Flatron E2341) and while not as pronounced of an issue as it was previously it was occurring on it as well.
I have been searching everywhere for anyone else who has had this problem, but while other people have somewhat similar issues none seem to match this.
Any further information that I should be providing, please let me know and I will give it to you, and if you need me to do something I will do it.
As an aside, this is my first time touching(using) a Vista computer.
Also this is the post that I originally found that was the closest I found to my problem and what brought me here
Thank you for your time in reading this!
