I recently bought a 2nd hand laptop, a very old & simple one (Compaq Armada 1520D). It runs Win98SE, and has 2 gig, 32mb, PI, and a battery in good condition.
I only use it for studying, so I basically just use Word and Access.
Then sometimes, all of a sudden, while I'm working, the screen goes dark, as if it switches itself off (it's only supposed to go to standby after 3 minutes of non-action). It turns to this darkblueish color, not quite black.
When I adjust it a little, like push it back & forth a bit, it usually snaps back on.
Or not, yesterday I found myself restarting it about 4 times before anything happened
I wonder what that could be about? A problem with the screen itself, or something in the videocard or other hardware?
Hope someone can help
