ESPRIMO Mobile screen going black during usage

Postby cornishflipper » Fri Sep 04, 2009 10:20

Hi there,

I have a ESPRIMO Mobile v5545 and the screen has started going black during usage. I have installed various Windows OS's onto it and the result is the same. I've checked that the latest gfx drivers are installed etc.

Once the screen went white with black vertical lines evenly spaced out. The hard drive seems to park it and the system becomes unresponsive.

On reboot, Windows doesnt detect any hardware failures. So it's difficult to identify the cause except to say is it over heating?

What is your graphic card? Is it SiS Mirage 3+ ?

If so I guess I have the same problem and it is that it doesn't support Aero in Windows 7 or Vista. I can use those OS modestly without transparencies. That is what happens to me no matters what I try, even with the latest gfx drivers.

If that's not your case, then I don't know.

Good luck

I had the same problem with 20 laptops of model V5535. I upgraded the bios. It solved the problem.
