Hi,

I asked this yesterday in the Graphics section, I didn't realize there was a specific section for laptops. And as I don't find the old one I made a new on here.



Is this a screen error (which i personally think it is) or a graphics error? And how do I tell???

Thnx MaDoGK :hello:

Try to connect an external monitor to see if the same problem occur on the monitor.

Or just take a screen shot and view it on another computer.

Thanks jarotech, kanoobie & unoriginal1. The screenshot I already tried, was fine on the other PC. I didn't think to check with another monitor. Tomorrow I'll remount the laptop and see if I get the same error. Thanks :D
