Preferred Solution: phantom display change!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)


I have an HP Pavillion dv7 , I was fooling around with music and decided for some stupid reason that I needed to install Bitlord to add music to my laptop, well I did not know what I was doing and now I have some new additions to my machine that I dont want and feel as if they are going to do more harm than good. I have removed the Bitlord through uninstall but now I have a new "websearch" that is there every time I open up IE and some program called  " isearch.fantastigames " pops up whenever it wants to , I ran AVG and it found nothing, is there something else I can do to clean this out of here thanks , sawzalot.
This is what I find on my home page when I start up even though I removed the program and change the Homepage  -  isearch.fantastigames.com/465
Thans for any reponse to this, I like this laptop and wouldlike to keep it clean and I have been very lucky up until last night.

I had 3-way SLI. Removed one card to run benchmarks with 2-way SLI. I opened notepad and it appears to open on a display that is no longer there. I had three displays (each display connected to one GTX980). I now have one display connected to the fist card. I have Display Fusion installed and thought that was messing it up, uninstalled it and the same thing appears. I used DDU to remove the drivers and reinstalled 365.10.
If I go into screen resolution I see this:

Hello Community I have a ThinkPad Helix (1st Gen) N3Z6CGES running Windows 10. Bought it back in 2013.Long time i was very happy with the device. Smaller issues, no big deals.Among others: Some static Windows control buttons burnt into the screen. Therefore, in September 2017 I decided to give it to a certified dealer, before my ThinkPlus service runs out.They changed the screen and since the Helix has this new screen, I have the same problem as it is seen in this video:Lenovo Yoga 3 14 freaking around... [YouTube]Exept for my phantom touches only occure in the lower corners of the screen. Which doesn't make it any better, though.Rebooting gives me a break for a few minutes, but then it start again out of nowhere. Sadly, for some time, after the repair i haven't used the notebook at at all, so I didn't realize there is this problem.During this time, of course my ThinkPlus Service and the warranty for the device run out. But then again I needed my notebook very urgently, saw the problem and didn't have the opportunity to give it to repair again.I improvised and turned off the touch screen in the Device Manager. I could only use the digitizer, but at least i was able to work with the Helix. Few days ago there was a Windows update and i noticed that this update resetted my settings in the device manager. I was able to use the touch input completely problem-free again and felt happy like a little child, not knowing how much is missed this comfort!The problem w... Read more

I recently broke the screen to my asus n56vz. I ended up removing the whole top panel and removing the inverter cord.

I plugged in a external monitor and it worked fine at first. When i restarted i noticed that it starting running hotter and displayed a second option on a 768p monitor. My 1080 aoc was made the main display seen though its not the first monitor its second.

I dont know whats going on. I tried to delete or disable the second monitor but i could not. What should i do?

I used to have 33c temps idle and not its 50c. It used to display only the external monitor. Now it displays 2 and the 2 is my main.

I dont have any recovery or 8.1 disks... I tried a refresh and it said "missing files" so i cant even do that...

Im frustrated that microsoft was no help.
So i am pinning my homes here that someone out there in the world can help me.

Hi everyone, thanks for looking.
Im running into a particular problem that I cant seem to find the reasons or the settings.

I watch HBO GO (i have a valid subscription) on my Windows 7 Home laptop and use an HDMI cable to connect my TV.

Scenerio 1:
If I leave the close the lid power option on hibernate, I must leave the laptop open and, when I connect the HDMI the TV, it becomes my monitor and I view as the monitor and watch anything full screen no problem.

Scenerio 2:
I change the power option on the lid close to "do nothing". When the HDMI cable is hooked up, if the laptop is open it uses the laptop display, if its closed it displays through the HDMI/TV. This is perfect and exactly what I want.
I can watch as the monitor no problem HOWEVER, if I choose full screen, I get gray borders and the "Full Screen" is not full and just centered.

I can not for the life of me figure out why and Im going crazy.
Does anyone know why the power option would have an effect on this and what settings I could change?

Many Thanks in Advance!!!


A:External display settings change when Power options change?

Check to see what resolution your laptop's display is at, what the external TV resolution is when you connect it to your laptop, and MAYBE what resolution the videos you're watching are. This just sounds like a resolution issue. If the TV is at a larger resolution than your laptop's resolution, change the TV's resolution to the size your laptop is at. Then try watching a video to see what happens. Hope this helps.

I just got a Presario 5301US from my neighbor minus the hard drive, so I stuck the hard drive w/win.98 in from an old, slow p.c. I had been using as a temp. & it loaded up and my programs are on the desktop, but I cannot change the display settings. The Icons are all large looking & it overlaps the edge of the screen. It's just stays at 16 colors & 640X480, I know usually I can change between 3 different settings to make the graphics finer & everything shrinks almost & fits the screen. It also has something pop up when I restart that says I have to free up something else cuz it was conflicting.

Can any one help me, I only really use my p.c. for online poker & the display is crucial. Thanx.

You need to install the SiS graphics driver:


Look in Device Manager and uninstall anything that is having problems. Some devices that were on the old machine may be loading drivers that cause problems with the new one. Then, reboot and most hardware should be detected automatically.

I have searched around the forums, but haven't find anything quite like what I'm experiencing.

roughly 2hrs ago, I go to open my laptop (which I haven't touched all day) to check my email, but when I opened it up, 2 seconds after, the screen turns funny, most of the stuff that's supposed to be white, turned a deep shade of pink. And it's the same thing with every page/program. If I open up a new screen, it'll look fine for like maybe 1 second, then turns pink. I restarted a couple of times, ran my virus scan...defragged etc, but nothing helped. I googled the problem, but that didn't turn up much consistency (the most popular answers were that either the screen I was looking at was supposed to be pink, or my computer just blew up! lol).

any one run into this? All the other colors are fine, just the brightest shades of white turn pink. I'm running Vista and it's an Acer notebook (computer is only a few months old, only online stuff it's used for is email and surfing from time to time). Thanks guys

A:unusual display change

Ive never ran into a problem like this, they could be a few causes to this:
Your copy of windows has been affected by a virus or has been modified
Your display card is F***ed or simply your laptop is old

You should much around with the display settings and see what happens ( Go to desktop, right click, properties, and much around with each tab, especially with the resolution tab and stuff, also go though the advanced tabs and see what will change and see if it will fix the problem.

If this doesn't work, i surely don't know whats wrong with your computer.
You should backup everything, get drivers etc and re-format your drive.

Hope this information helps :D

A:Change HD Display To FULL HD G50-30

hi Lenodroid
Welcome to the Forums.
From the G50 datasheet and from page 28 of the HMM, the G50 series can accommodate up to 1920x1080 (FHD). However, this is only implemented on the G40-70, G50-70, G40-80, G50-80 models as these models uses a eDP (2 lane) connector whilst the G50-30 uses an eDP (1 lane).
- Link to picture
- Link to picture
Although theoretically the upgrade is possible by changing the panel to an FHD (like the N156HGE-EBB)) and changing the eDP cable (2lane), I haven't seen this upgrade being done by other users so I wouldn't recommend proceeding (unless you can return those parts just in case it doesn't work).

when i moved to spain from the uk last year i bought a laptop here
windows 7 home premium was pre-installed
at some point and i don't remember how i changed the display language from spanish to english
i have just bought another laptop which also has windows 7 home premium installed
and i can't work out how to change the display language
the received wisdom seems to be that it is only possible with an upgrade to ultimate
but i didn't upgrade my first machine
is it possible that i reinstalled windows and was therefore able to select english as the default display language?

thanks in anticipation

A:display language change

Welcome to Seven Forums bas1948. It is possible you may be able to change some of the interface language using Language Interface Packs (LIPs).

Language Interface Packs (LIPs). LIPs can be installed over any edition of Windows Vista and Windows 7, providing a translated version of only the most widely used dialog boxes, menu items, and help content. You can download LIPs from the Microsoft Download Center by using the links below. To install a LIP, you will need to have the required parent language installed on your PC. If your language is listed as "coming soon," it's on the way—check back here for updates.

But yes, I believe you can choose English at the time of a reinstall as a fix. A Guy

Hi to all,
I'm having a lot of trouble with my p.c. at the moment, I'm trying to work through the problems one at a time though. Every time I try to change my display settings to 16 bit high colour and then restart the settings stay the same. When I run directx 8.1 it says that there was a problem with direct draw.

Any help with this problem will be appreciated Thanks

A:I cant change my display settings

Can you actually move the slider to 16 bit high color? What operating system? Under the “Advanced” tab you should be able to select “Apply the new color changes without restarting”. What is your resolution set at now? Have you ever been able to set high color with your present resolution on your current monitor?

Processor and video card if you know? It sounds like you might have an older system with an old video card that might not be able to handle the combination of resolution and color you are trying to get it to take. Some older cards will not run DirectX or Direct Draw without video driver updates.

Hi i am new to these forums and am hoping that someone can help me. i cant change my display settings. I log on, enter the control panel and open up personalisation, but I cant open the 'display settings' option. when I click it an error message pops up and says

'C:\Windows\system32\rundll32.exe windows cannot access the specified device, path, or file. You may not have the appropriate permissions to access the item.'

It is the same for Theme, Desktop background, Windows colour and appearance, screensaver and some other stuff in the control panel. I personally think I've changed or removed something in the registry, or have malware or something like that. it could just be what it says, although im not sure. I'm not very good with technical computer stuff so could you explain it carefully for me.

It's annoying because I left it in 16 bit while I recorded something then this happened. Also, I've tried running the computer in safe mode, its the same problem. then I logged onto the other administrators login and it worked! problem was, I couldnt change my settings from that login, only theirs.

Try updating your video drivers.

If it just says vga device or something along those lines, you can go to the support site for your laptop maker, search based on the model or service tag for your laptop, and download the most recent drivers there.

Is this something new or have I been missing something? I always thought that a list of advertisment links appeared on the right hand side of the Google page. Any help please.

Yeah, it's like a quick view, pretty cool.

It's been like that for a while.

Hi All,
I recently brought a new computer with Vista Home Premium. The problem is I brought it in China, so therefore the display language (menus, help page) is in Chinese. My question is, is there any practical way to change the display language back to English.

The change of display language is absent in the Language and Control Panels, I have searched about LLPs and GUIs, which I don't really get. Thanks a lot in advance.

A:How to Change Display Language

it may be an OEM version that is only available in one language - I'm not about vista but that was the caser on some XP machines

reading this it appears to be the same

so reading here
Windows Vista Ultimate and Windows Vista Enterprise.Click to expand...

you can only change with these version if you download the kit

to find out which version you have

How do I get additional language files?

Hello, I bought P50 last July with: Intel Xeon CPU E3-1505M v5 @ 2.80GHzNVIDIA Quadro M2000M3840x2160 non-touch Display When I was buying this laptop, I saw that a few people complaining the color of 1080P display was bad, therefore I chose the 4K display. But during this half year I found 4K hasn?t really had a compatible solution with all software, specially I have to use various types of apps. Then the 4K really becomes a burden to me since some apps looks very bad and I often have to switch resolutions for different apps. I just want to know if it?s possible to change my display to 1080P. I don?t care about the color that much, but more the compatibility. I?m still in warranty and want to change display by Lenovo?s after-sales service. Has anyone had similar experience changing it? Or any other suggestions? Thanks in advance.Best,Chen

Hi everyone...

I'm having two problems which I haven't been able to resolve via searching. Before stating the problem I will state my specs and the elaborate on the series of events that led up to it, because it really does not make any sense to me.

I have been running on a self built XP computer for the previous year and have had no problems relating to display. I'm running a 4400 AMD 64 dual core, 7800 GT PCI-E video card, with two hard drives, and a ViewSonic 20" widescreen LCD which has been used via DVI.

I was planning on getting a TV tuner to install, but was given a supposedly working few year old Radeon 9 series All-in-Wonder PCI card from a friend. I struggled to find much information online to see if it can be used as just a tuner for getting input, but without finding much information I figured installing it couldn't mess anything up. So I turned everything off, unplugged it all, put in the card into a free PCI slot, plugged everything back in (monitor into my primary video card), and powered back up.

Problem #1: No monitor display at all on my computer (yellow lamp).

In response, I shut it all down and removed the new card and double checked all the cables in an attempt to just get it back to how it was. No display with the card removed and my computer's physical state in, what appears to be, an identical physical state. Without being able to get into BIOS (not that I'd know what to change), I can't really do much o... Read more

Hello pauldingresiden and welcome to TSF,

Before we begin the steps to fix this, let's see how much of it is left in your system.

Please download SmitfraudFix (by S!Ri)

Extract the content (a folder named SmitfraudFix) to your Desktop.

Open the SmitfraudFix folder and double-click smitfraudfix.cmd
Select option #1 - Search by typing 1 and press "Enter"
and a text file will appear which lists infected files (if present).
Please copy/paste the content of that report into your next reply.
