Laptop Crashes When Connected With Tv


Laptop crashes when connected with a tv. I am using a lenovo 3000 n200 laptop with 3gb ram and i am running windows 7 professional. It has a pentium duel-core processor 1. 6ghz. It has an intel x3100 graphics card with 256mb memory. I just purchased a new lcd tv and i decided to try and connect my laptop to it. The tv has an s-video port and so does my laptop. So i used an s-video cable to connect my laptop to my tv and every time i try duel screen or extended desktop, my computer crashes and says that my graphics card has crashed. I'm not sure weather it is a driver issue or a registry issue but if any noe has a solution to it, please let me know.

Laptop Router Not Connected

I just added a wep key to my router, because someone near me was constantly leeching it. Everyone else was able to connect to the newly secured network fine (on ipod touches, and laptops running vista and 7). When i tried to connect to the network on my laptop, it says that it connected, but next to the wireless name, it says in big bold letters "not connected", but the option in the bottom right of the window only allows for disconnecting, because it thinks that it is connected. The other strange thing, is that under network connections, the wireless connection icon also says not connected. If i right click on the icon, the "status" option is greyed out, so i can't click it. And finally, if i try to "repair" the connection, it disables/enables it fine, but says that it was unable to connect to the wireless network, and that the repair failed. I have a feeling that the problem has to do with a service, because my laptop has a tendency to shut off random services, but i have no idea where to start my search of the faulty service. I'm running on windows xp home edition sp3
My wireless adapter is a atheros ar5007eg

Laptop Says Connected To Internet But It Is Not

My laptop says connecetd to the internet but it is not. Right now i am on my brothers mac, and it has a perfect internet connection. My laptop is right beside me and it won't connect to the internet. On the bottom (i think it's called a task bar. ) It says the signal connection is "excellent" but i can't connect. It says it is running 54. 0 mbps. I have no idea what that means. I am not a computer whiz so answers simply. Maybe step by step instructions.

I am trying to print from my laptop through the printer connected to my pc. I have wireless internet. So far i tried this after searching around in the internet.

Problem With Laptop Connected To External Monitor

My laptop screen is broken so i have been using it for almost a year now with an external monitor. Everything was working great until a few days ago. Now when i turn the computer on, the screen for the monitor lights up and when this all happened at first (and still is happening) my external monitors screen resolution went huge. I've tried fixing it and nothing will make everything smaller again. I can't play games because of this either. I've tried unplugging and replugging and going to control panel to see screen 1 and screen 2 but nothing i try is working. Any help? Because if now i'll be stuck like this for a long time since i don't have the cash to fork out to buy anything new for this stupid thing.

How Can I Check If Lcd Is Properly Connected Inside Laptop ?

Recently, whenever i start up my laptop, the screen has been occasionally been black. Sometimes, i've been able to fix it by adjusting the screen (moving it back / forth) but today, i can't seem to fix it at all. I would contact dell, but my warranty has expired, and all of their online solutions tell me to go into diagnostics mode. Which requires the screen. -_- my guess is that something inside just got unplugged, as my screen hasn't been darker or anything, it's just occasionally died on me, so i don't think it burnt out. Simply put, how can i check if my lcd is properly connected inside my laptop, and if it isn't, how can i fix it?

Monitor Connected To Laptop In Extended Desktop Mode Not Working

Why wont halo combat evolved run through an alternate monitor connected to my laptop in extended desktop mode? I have it all set up with my new 20" monitor connected to my laptop, using the extended desktop feature. The are connected through the normal blue monitor cable, and i have a 512mb ati radeon graphics card. I can run every other game i have, including cod 4, 6, crysis, halo 2 etc on the monitor, perfect, but i start halo combat evolved and it just has a black box in the middle of my screen?

I can run it on my laptop without my monitor plugged in. And i have fiddled around with the resolution because i feared halo might not support what ever resolution i have now (1600x something - forgot lol), but ive tried everything and i cantt gett it to work.

External Blu-ray Usb Drive On Laptop Connected To Hdtv

At the moment i use my wifes laptop (core2duo 1. 8ghz with 2gb of ddr2) as a media centre for dvd/avi/x264 playback. Its connected to my 40" lcd tv via a vga cable. The laptop uses onboard intel graphics and it handles hi-def x264 files with ease. So i was wondering if an external blu-ray drive would run well on it?

Pc Crashes On All Games

I built a new comp this week with a bunch of new parts and some canabalized old parts from my previous pc. Installed windows vista, works for everything else but always crashes about 10-15 minutes into playing games (hl2, m2tw, wic). First i updated all drivers for the mobo, graphics card, hd audio, wireless networking. Also the bios on the mobo. Still the same problem. I thought it might be a vista problem so i used this 94010 hotfix. Still the same problem. Next i tried doing a dual boot with vista and xp to see if i could play games with xp. Still the same problem in xp which makes me believe it is a hardware issue. So i'm thinking the 2 most suspect things are the power supply (since it's old and doesn't have the expanded connections) and the ram (since it's old and i've heard that vista doesn't handle 4 ram dimms too well). However i don't want to dump another $200-300 without asking for any advice. Is there anyone out there who can help?

System With Xp Crashes

I've noticed that the crashes occur mostly (lately it seems only) the first time i boot the system on a daily basis. It starts windows xp without problems, but give it 15 minutes or so. Sometimes much less, sometimes a lot longer. And *poof* blackscreen and reboots. I deactivated the "reboot on system crash" option in windows xp to get some sort of blue screen. It gave me one of those 0x0000000 stop errors, but the error i got didn't give me any reasonable results with google. Tons of errors that "looked" like it, but not the same code. The blue screen made some "suggestions" which brought me to the memory and the video card. "Maybe it's this. Maybe it's not"; nothing conclusive in the blue screen. Tried to access adress; page fault kinda error. But the tests gave me pass as result! What tests?

Random Freezes, Crashes

Turned pc on tonight after work, and after a few minutes i got a windows error saying superfecth had stopped working, then svchost was closing and my wireless network lost its connection. I rebooted and ran spybot s+d, only came up with the usual (tracking cookies etc, no real threats) installed and ran avg and half way through the scan my pc froze, i had to hard reboot to fix it, upon doing so i went into bios and undone my oc just incase it was hardware related, rebooted once more. Tried to run avg again and halfway through i got a bsod, somthing about "irq less or not equal"

Anyways i cant figure out what the *** is going on so i posted a hijackthis log in the hopes someone might be able to tell me wether theres anything there that might be causing this weird behaviour.

Constant Computer Crashes

The issue started about a week ago, every now and then the computer will lock up to the point i must hard restart it. I have exhausted every effort i know to find the issue. I have ran a hard drive test, memtest (56 tests with no failures, i don't know how many tests there are but it was still going and ive heard 49 was enough tests). I have dusted the computer out and such. The problem started whenever i was playing games but eventually migrated toward just surfing the internet. As far as i can tell it is completely random.system:-

Os: windows vista home premium 64bit
Processor: intel core 2 duo cpu 3. 16ghz
Ram: 4 gigs
Video cards: nvidia geforce 9800m gtx sli enabled

Pc Crashes When Ethernet Plugged In

Pc crashes when ethernet plugged in. Sometimes wont see network cable. Replaced a motherboard in a computer and now when i go to plug the cat5 cable into the lan plug on the mobo, the computer crashes. I got it to stop crashing but now it cant even see that the network cable is plugged in. Any tips/suggestions? The mobo is a solar energy sis741gx board. Cheap board as it's for a socket 462 amd processor. Internet works fine on all other computers in the place.

Reinstall Xp Computer Crashes And Reboots

So i upgraded my computer's cpu, mobo, and graphics card today. When i go to reinstall xp the whole thing crashes. I turn on the computer with the disc in the drive, and it then goes to the windows instalation screen. But when i click "install windows xp", or the recovery thing it says, at the bottom of the screen, "examaning 762342 blah blah (last three were random numbers i picked)". Then, while displaying this, it just crashes, and reboots. Now, sometimes when it reboots it gets stuck at the first screen where it says all the stuff about your computer. (Cpu, hdds, cdrom drives, not the bios) but before it can list anything else it will stop at "usb mouse" and freeze untill i reboot. So, i go into the bios to see if its really there. Its not! The bios does not detect it. I looked at everything, cables, jumpers, everything. Now, i have 2 hdds, one 80gb and one 30gb. The 80 one does not work, the 30 one does. Also, everyonce and a while it will say somthing about the s. M. A. R. T being bad. Press f1 to continue.

Burning Dvds Crashes Computer

Each time i burn a dvd or cd, my computer freezes. If i burn a dvd at 1x, the computer is noticably "laggy" but is still usable. If i burn a dvd at 2x, the computer totally freezes. 30 mins later the dvd is complete and i can use the computer again. The burn progress monitor practically jumps from 0% to 100% after 30 mins. I can barely move the mouse in between. This situation happened suddenly. One day it was fine, the next day it wasnt. I did nothing in between that i can think of. Things i know it isnt:

Ram: my ram is fine. I have plenty of it, and a ram monitoring program also confirms there is plenty free. Ide cables: i have tried switching around the ide setup to no avail. Software: burning with nero/roxio/adaptec/fire burner/dvd decrypter. All freeze computer. Drive: the drive works fine for reading, and ripping. Only burning slows the computer down. It works. Eventually. Just cant use computer whilst i burn. Media: have tried plenty of different types and there is no change. Have tried rebooting etc, reinstalling software. Hard drives: have over 100 gb free, and plenty of space on the hd that contains any buffer files. Certainly isnt the reason. Only thing i havent done yet (no time) is formatted my comp. Any ideas what it could be? I dont like to format all that much.

Stumped On System Build Crashes

Hardware install went fine, i installed the newest drivers for forceware, nforce chipset drivers and i installed the updates for the soundblaster as well as installing all the windows updates. The pc runs fine except when playing games, it randomly crashes in far cry and hl2/source games. There is no bsod the computer just stops and the last sound stutters for a moment and then it reboots. I don't see anything suspicious is event viewer other than a few "an error was detected on device deviceharddisk0d during a paging operation. " Entries in the system log, but these aren't happening when the crashes occur. When i open the mini dump file i think it's telling me nv4_mini.sys is the problem which i know is a video card driver file. I ran memtest86 for 8 hours and didn't get any errors.nvidia monitor says 34c cpu 38c system 62c gpu. Ive tried older drivers, newer drivers, updating the bios, doing a reformat/reinstall, checked all the bios settings, and trying different video settings in game and in windows. Im trying to figure out what to troublshoot next can anyone please give me a clue?

Crashes @ 100% Cpu Load

Whenever im finished downloading something, or loading a game, or doing anything that takes a lot of cpu power for more than 4 or 5 seconds, my computer will completly freeze and. My keboard, and everything locks up. I end up pressing the reset button my computer so i can get back to whatever i was doing. I have found this happening whenever i try to load half-life 2. I never had a problem before so im not sure what could be causing this. My specs are in my signature. And nothing has been overclocked.

Computer Crashes - Clicking Noises

My system keeps crashing. The symptoms are some audio clicking noises when i move the mouse, followed by general computer lagging, then pretty soon it just crashes (to a bsod if i don't manually restart before that). I just updated my graphics card (my old one went out) and its been doing it since then it seems. I've mostly noticed it when i play games. Doesn't matter what game really. After a certain ammount of time it will simply start to have audio distortion and then it will begin to lag and crash. And it has crashed while doing almost nothing a couple of times. I ran realtemp, and it appears my gpu is running at about 85c. While my processor gets to around 60c in games. I'm not sure but i don't believe those are temps that would make it crash. I've updated video card drivers, chipset drivers, nvidiaphysx drivers, audio drivers (all on 64bit certified drivers).
