Hi John_S...

What make and model is your Compaq? I'd like to search their site for the correct drivers before I send you to the NVIDIA drivers I found earlier.

My Monitor is Fs740 and my hardrive is Presario
But for my hardrive do you mean the Name it says on the cover of the hardrive or something else?

Hi John_S

The latest NVIDIA drivers for your card are located HERE. Download from the Primary Download link.

Driver Installation Hints

* "Download Accelerator" utilities should be disabled when downloading any drivers.

* Do not run virus protection software in the background while installing the drivers. This prevents the driver from configuring itself properly.

* Before installing new drivers make sure you uninstall all NVIDIA display drivers from the Windows Control Panel. Browse to the Start Menu > Windows Control Panel > Add/Remove Programs and search for "NVIDIA Windows Display Drivers" or "NVIDIA Display Drivers" and select remove.

Let us know if this helps.

The motherboard has the plugs of the video card and others. If it shorts, this will affect the video card and monitor. So, it could be either a short in either the monitor, motherboard, or video card.

Hey John_S...

what do u suggest I do?

Let's try a couple more things before we start removing our shorts... :tazz:

Before you download and install these drivers, have you tried a system restore to a point before this problem began? If you haven't, I'd suggest trying that and if your problem remains, download and install These Drivers from Compaq.

Keep us posted on your progress...

System restore is something that Microsoft has added to windows, it restores your system to a time that it was working correctly

Click "Start" point to "All Programs" then to "Accessories" then to "System Tools" and click on "System Restore". In the resulting window, make sure that the button next to "Restore my computer to an earlier time" is ticked...click "Next". Choose a bold date on the calendar before your problem began and click on it...click "Next". Let it do it's thing.

Older as in way before the problem? OR they are all after the problem started?
