Hello everybody :D
I had my pc turned off for 3 days
and when I opened it,I had some stuck(black) and some burned(coloured) pixels.
The bad thing about this is that they are getting bigger and bigger i think,
is there anything i can do to stop it?
tnx a lot

PS : I hope this is the right topic for this post :)
PS2: My monitor is Samsung Syncmaster 2032BW

Thanks for the update :thumbsup:

I suggest checking the temps and voltages first of all, do some gaming and then run Speedfan for us please;

Download Speedfan and install it. Once it's installed, run the program and post here the information it shows. The information I want you to post is the stuff that is circled in the example picture I have attached.
If you are running on a vista machine, please go to where you installed the program and run the program as administrator.

(this is a screenshot from a vista machine)

To capture and post a screenshot;

Click on the ALT key + PRT SCR key..its on the top row..right hand side..now click on start...all programs...accessories...paint....left click in the white area ...press CTRL + V...click on file...click on save...save it to your desktop...name it something related to the screen your capturing... BE SURE TO SAVE IT AS A .JPG ...otherwise it may be to big to upload... then after typing in any response you have... click on browse...desktop...find the screenshot..select it and click on the upload button...then on the lower left...after it says upload successful...click on add reply like you normally would.

Depending on the results we may need to run further software for comparison http://www.cpuid.com.../hwmonitor.html

Screenshot instructions are provided to assist those that may read this topic but are not yet aware of the “how to”.

Temps are good but can you run HWMonitor so that we have a comparison for the voltage readings that Speedfan returned http://www.cpuid.com.../hwmonitor.html

HWMonitor is not showing us what we need + some of the readings are obviously off on a tangent, look at the TMPIN2 readings, please remove any testing software as you see fit.

Can you provide a Speccy url for us please http://www.piriform....file-to-the-web

Again no PSU voltage readings showing :(

Can you check the BIOS and see if there are +3,3V, +5V and +12V readings showing there, it may be under PC Health Status and look something like the attachment below.

NB: BIOS voltage readings.
The readings are not conclusive in the BIOS as the computer is under the least amount of load, if they are higher or lower than what they should be though it does suggest a PSU problem.

ATX +12V (8-Pin Connector)= 12.07V
ATX +5V= 5.11V
ATX +3.3V= 3.35V

No worries we all have other things going on and understand that there may sometimes be a delay between replies :thumbsup:

The above readings are ok.

Couple of tests for the video card http://www.ozone3d.net/benchmarks/fur/ do the burn in test for between 15 min and 20 minutes max, unless the card fails the test before this that is BTW.
If the above test passes the card use http://www.technibbl...ry-stress-test/
