Q: noticed entire display was vibrating

I've been leaving PC on overnight periodically, uploading my iTunes collection to the new Google Music beta online storage.

I come in this morning- the program had finally finished- over 6400 songs- and I noticed that the screen was vibrating. It does about 500 a night or so.

the 'Google' logo on the web page. Even the icons in the systray. Back and forth. very subtlety.

A reboot, and it's gone.

A: noticed entire display was vibrating

Was it fast? slow?

Did you maybe turn the monitor off while the computer was on all night?

Or maybe the monitor got auto power disabled duringthe night?

If so then the video card may have switch to a different timing mode and did not switch back properly when the monitor came back on...

I have a 4-year old Samsung SyncMaster 913v, 17" monitor. A few days ago, when the pc was brought out of hibernation, the display on the monitor was vibrating. It corrected itself after a restart but now won't even do that. What could the problem be? The video cable is new and when I hooked up a different monitor, the same thing happened.

Wife has a VERY old Compaq 2300 XP laptop (yes, I know; I should trash it and get her a tablet). Today when she turned it on, the Desktop and any software, does not fill the screen. Everything is there, nothing disappears off screen; it just no longer fills the entire screen. I've tried changing resolutions, increasing the font size, etc., but these do nothing to fix the problem. And I can find no graphics property (right click empty area on screen) that deals with scaling. It looks like something has scaled the video back to ~75%. Is there a setting that will stretch it out both horizontally and vertically? If so, where is it?

BTW, I've already checked Desktop properties, and it's already set to "Stretch".

Please help! My entire desktop display is now too large. Everything from the icons, the desktop picture to webpages.. the font & pics are huge. This happened yesterday when my 10 month old baby leaned forward and hit the keyboard with his hands. He only hit the keyboard a few times and the entire screen and display went huge. There must be some kind of windows keyboard shortcut, but I cannot find it anywhere. I am using a laptop with Windows 98. Thanks for any suggestions!
 

A:Entire desktop display too large

Odds are you have a video control hotkey the child hit to reset your desktop.

Right mouse click on a blank area of your desktop and choose properties. This will bring up the video display console. Choose settings. Odds are you are in 640x480 mode now and laptops tend to be in 1024x768 mode [which makes for smaller icons/more desktop space]. Since you are running Windows 98 try changing the setting to 800x600 to see if this was your original setting before going to the 1024 mode.

My computer has Window's 98. It is a Toshiba laptop. When I move the curser up, down, or side to side, the entire screen moves. It doesn't happen initially when I first turn the computer on, but after a few minutes
 

A:entire screen display moves with curser

It probably because your resolution is too high. Try right clicking your desktop and go to properties. Then click the settings tab and slide the bar you see a little to the left. If it is still the same move it some more to the left and apply changes.

Specs:
Windows 7 64-bit
Service Pack 1
CPU: i5-760 2.8GHz
GPU: GTX 660 Nvidia Driver: 335.23
PSU: Corsair CMPSU-850TX 850W
Mobo: ASUS Maximus III GENE
Boot HDD: SAMSUNG 830 Series SSD

Basic Explanation of the Problem: When I'm playing games, no matter the graphical intensity, my display will randomly shut off and audio will duck out. It stays like this for about 5 seconds then everything comes back online, with an error popup bubble from the system tray that says something along the lines of "Nvidia display drivers crashed and have recovered." Sometimes this happens very often, sometimes I can go for a few hours without it happening. Sometimes when my display ducks out, instead of a black screen it will be pure magenta, or pure yellow, or pure green, and the audio instead of ducking will hang. It doesn't recover from this state and I have to hard restart my computer. Sometimes the system just crashes entirely and automatically restarts. These latter two issues happen more rarely, the "display driver crashing and restarting" error is by far more common.

Details and What I've Done Already:
This is an issue that's plagued me for about 3/4 a year now. I thought I solved it by using an older video card I had (a GTX 460). Everything was going fine with my 460 except sometimes I would boot my computer up and everything that used the GPU would run at like 2 fps. I'm talking games, Windows Aero fades and window size ...

(I really apologise if this is in the wrong thread, feel free to move it if it is, but I just wasnt sure where it should go cause im not sure what the problem is)
Ive got a new computer, and I'm using my Hitatchi 19LD3750DU TV as the computer monitor. I've noticed that down the left hand side is a back bar where the display doesnt reach the edge of the monitor, and also the entire display is slightly stretched vertically. Its like the whole display has been compressed slightly from the left. Since I work with photos and drawings on here, this isnt good.
Ive gone into display settings and its only options are set display options, currently at 1360 x 768, the reccomended option. Trying to change the display on the monitor just makes it auto adjust back to this setting. What I really need is some way to "stretch screen to fit monitor" option, but I cant find anything like this in the system. What can I do?

I can't figure out if VLC can display/show a video's running time. So far it only shows how long I've been watching the clip, but I want to be able to see a.) how long the entire thing runs and b.) how much time is left in the clip. Can it do that?
 

A:Can VLC Player display video's entire running time?

What version are you using. .9.9 and 1.0 display the total run time right next to the current run time in the lower right corner in windowed mode and centerish on the full screen panel and right side of the full screen panel respectively. I don't think it displays how much time is left except as a calculation of total time minus run time so far.

I don't know that it is always accurate though, like its reading the length of a .vob file instead of the whole DVD movie, maybe some other things that confuse it.

I am talking about the image that first appears before you log in. I have Photoshop, yet it seems whatever I do it crops the height. I am not concerned with the width but what the entire height. My resolution is 1920x1280.

Also, my screen saver consists of images, of which some of them are being cropped as well. What is the max width & height in pixels I need so I get no cropping>

Thanks!

A:How do I resize opening image to display entire height?

Is 1920x1280 your native resolution for your monitor? Meaning, is that what it's official rating is?
If so, then that should be the resolution, why it is cropping, I would not know, that doesn't make much sense.

However, I have an image that I am using for my lock screen that is 1920x1080, but my native resolution is 1600x900
I do not get any cropping.

On the screen saver, if you are using the Photos screen saver, it should resize them to fit the screen

You may need to reinstall or update your video drivers.

Also, have you done any tweaking to your system? Made any changes at all? Reg Keys, customizations?

Hi. I purchased my laptop in May and it was running like a charm.  Now everytime I take it somewhere, shut down and start up again, the fan is noisy - like it is vibrating or hitting something.  It is intermittent, and sometimes either quiet or very noisy.  I am not quite sure what to do, and could use some advice.  The laptop is still under warranty, so I do not want to take the back cover off to see what lies beneath.  Thank you.

A:Vibrating Fan

Get some strong compressed air like a can of air or better yet an air compressor. Stick a bent-out paperclip in the grille to hold the fan blades. Blast in the air. Laptop should be off for this obviously. Now turn on. If the fan still makes a noise you have to either risk the warranty by opening it or send it in for service.

Hello guys.

A quick question over here.
I have a Cooler Master Silent Pro 850W PSU that today randomly decided to stop being quiet.
And not because of the fan.

The socket where you plug the cable seems to be coming loose and vibrates every other couple of minutes to an extent where it is uncomfortable. Specially since my computer runs all night.

I talked to the store and they won't take it back because it is not affecting it's performance and it's not an issue that jeopardizes my system. So they basically said ''Deal with it''

So, there may be a way to get this dampened or something, but I can't think of what I can do. I was thinking of just trailing the edge with superglue little by little until the gap that is vibrating gets filled up, and that would most likely be the end of it I guess.

Would there be other ideas you can recommend?

For the sake of the explanation, I include the part that is vibrating highlighted.

A:PSU output socket vibrating.

Have you tried a different AC power cord? Could be that cord is slightly under size.

If its not the AC power cord, then I would suspect either a bad fan or a transformer vibrating to the point its causing the problem. either way, contact Cooler Master. I had an OCZ power supply with a noisy fan and contacted them, they reported there was a batch of power supplies with defective fan controller circuitry and they replaced the power supply with a newer production run model that did not have the problem.

Hi All,
Have had my XPS15 now for +/- a month, and i love the machine up till now. Checked everything, and a earlier problem with usb ports seems to have resolved itself and back-light bleeding is ok with only one spot with minimal bleeding. One thing that became apparent though is that my tab and caps lock keys are a little loose. The sound they make is slightly different when subtle touching them. This is in no way a problem with regards to functionality, but it makes that they vibrate when the laptop uses it speakers, especially around the 400 Hz frequency.
Does anyone know a fix for this? or should i contact support for this issue? Its kind of annoying while watching a movie or listening to music, given the premium class of this system. Furthermore, I had to wait over a month (delay) until the laptop arrived and as i need it for work, I cant really miss it for another extended period of time.
Any ideas or advice would be appreciated.
Happy new year to all,

Within the last week I have noticed an issue arising with my desktop computer. When I boot it up in the morning, after a short while (generally by the time it has reached the desktop) there is a relatively loud vibrating sound. I'm pretty sure that it is a mechanical problem, as lifting the computer or placing my hand against the side of the case dulls the sound. Generally, from the moment it starts, it immediately begins to get quieter and quieter until I can no longer hear it, and the PC is running normally. It lasts perhaps 20 seconds, tops. The only other time I have ever noticed it is once when the PC was under heavy load, and it stopped after I had shut down all running programmes, which leads me to believe it may be a fan? I haven't cleaned the inside of the PC in around 4 months to the day (silly I know). A local techy has offered to have a look at it for free as I don't know much about computers, but I figured maybe I should just blast the inside with some compressed air and see if that resolves the issue before resigning myself to having no internet access for 24 hours. Yes i'm addicted. Thanks, Chris.

Hi - hoping someone can help me with my HP Photosmart 1315. I love this printer --- it makes photo-quality pictures, but over the last few months, it has been vibrating badly during printing, causing the print quality to suffer. It seemed the silver rail the print heads traveled on was a little "un-lubricated." I went back and forth w/ HP online tech support, who finally recommended to me that I take it to a dealer/authorized repair shop (if I tried to lube it myself, it could damage something...?). Anyway, I took it in to a repair place like they said and paid $50 for them to fix it. They ended up cleaning the rail and lubricating it with "3 in 1," whatever that is. That was a week ago, and it's a little better, but still vibrating. It's a little frustrating given I paid more than $300 two years ago for this thing. I'm not paying another $50 for these guys to "fix" it again...so I looked everywhere on the www for "3 in 1" but can't find it anywhere. The guy at the shop said it was a pretty common thing at a computer shop.

Any recommendations? I really wanna fix this. Thanks!

My 17" crt display went kaput, and the monitor started emitting smoke. I closed the power immediately and that was it.
Forward 2 days later...
called in LG service and the guy fixed my monitor! bingo.
But now when I start my computer, it makes a REAL LOUD noise and everything vibrates wildly. the noise and the vibration 'stay' for 2-3 minutes before stopping.
Now I have searched a bit and come across several probable causes - and eliminated quite a few , like hard-disk, dvd-drive , wires touching fan..

What I really want to know is that could there be any relation between my monitor going dead an smoking, and the cpu vibration?

The system is functioning just fine right now and a soft reboot does not cause any sound or vibration. Also the problem does not happen everytime..

Hello, I've had my ideapad z500 for exactly 4 years last month, 4 years in which it worked perfectly (except for the brightness problem that seems to plague this model and had me recover the whole system evry time I accidentally lowered brightness) It still works perfectly, but 3 days ago it suddenly started whirring and vibrating. The vibration seems even throughout the laptop, but the sound seems to come form the left side (again, I can't really tell).First time it happened, I freaked out and force-shut it down (holding the power button). This made the whirring stop, but when I started it again, it resumed. Again, i stopped the machine and I started trying to unscrew everything I found (I mean, it's been 4 years, so I assume I had no warranty anyway), but I couldn't really open anything, so i put back the 9 screws. I mention this because, apparently, me turning it on all sides must've done something to it, because after starting the laptop again, there was no sound. The next days it worked just fine.Today, however, it started again. I didn't close it immediately and I continued using it some 3 minutes (and except for the sound and vibration, everything was working perfectly), hoping that it will go away, but it didn't and I turned off the laptop. Other details that might be important:-while I normally use the laptop for cpu-intensive tasks, this occured in a week when I distinctively didn't do anything other than text editing and web browsing.

i am at an army camp for the month and i brought my own, new computer the only monitor available was a 7 year monitor be in mind,at army camp,its required to reformat computers before first using internet isps.

i hooked up my freshly reformatted computer to the monitor and the dsl connection. the last person to used the same exact monitor and same exact dsl modem/connect had no problem but they also had a very old computer
(win98)
when windows desktop opened up, instead of the monitor screen showing one windows desktop,the monitor screen showed 4 windows desktop. all fuzzy,all vibrating,all blury,all vibrating.i immediately thought i fried the computer cleaning out the dust earlier. then another person hooked up
his new and newly reformated computer to the same monitor and dsl connection and the monitor did the same thing as to his!,4 blurry desktops opened up.

a third person,without a reformated new computer,hooked up his computer and the monitor screen worked,no 4 desktops. he then reformatted his
computer,hooked up again to the monitor,this time he got the 4 blury screens like the rest of us.
(i will not be able to reply to replys to this thread til wednesday,thanks)
PUZZLED.

This is weird! Yesterday I was browsing and I noticed that Zemana Antilogger and Raxco PerfectGuard are exactly the same! Did you know? What do you think about this?

There have been a large amount of people who have problems accessing MSN, Yahoo, Google and what not (myself included), pretty recently. Does this seem a little strange or what?

I was checking out my HOSTS file, and I found all these sites blocked (ALL of the Google sites, Altavista, and such) so I tried to edit it in notepad, but it won't let me save my edits to the host file, it keeps saving it as a Notepad file. I could've sworn I've edited my HOSTS file in Notepad before. Is there any program in particular I should use to edit it?

Thanks ahead of time.
 

A:Has anyone noticed...?

Okay, nevermind. I realized it was set to read-only (dur.) So I turned that off, then edited it. Google and the other sites work now. I tinkered around a little bit longer in my WINDOWS folder, and I found another Hosts file, a backup, that had all the sites blocked. Any idea what this is? Work of a virus, or some such?

I don't know if this is a PCIe thing but its something I noticed with my 220GT. No video card BIOS message during the POST. It goes straight to my motherboard BIOS screen. I don't remember ever having a PCI or AGP card that didn't show a BIOS screen first thing and then pass off to the motherboard BIOS. Something else I've noticed too is the way my 220GT handles dual monitors during boot up. Only the one connected to the DVI connector shows an image during boot up. The one on the VGA port shows a "no signal" until windows loads the desktop and then it shows my extended desktop. Any AGP card I've ever used would mirror the bios screen onto both monitors during the post and boot up. This isn't a complaint, I actually like it this way, just an observation. I'm just wondering if anybody else has noticed something similar?

A:Something I've noticed?

Are you supposed to get a gfx card bios screen? I do not. Maybe because I have a radeon? I never got one on my 7300LE geforce either.
