Hi there

I've got an Acer Notebook (The exact model escapes me, but when I get home I will post it) running Windows XP.

Anyway, it runs great. The one thing I noticed is it has trouble with images.
Particulary gradient images. A smooth gradient on my old screen is normal, but on my laptop it isn't smooth as a gradient should.

It was suggested that my drivers need updating. Anyone know if the solution to this is a small one, or does it need taking in.

If I haven't given enough information, just tell me. I'm not really a techie, more of a web developer.

Thanks.

From another forum I was on the person said it happens to LCD screens. Does this happen to any other LCD screen? I don't have another, so I can't check.

Hello,

I have an Acer Aspire 5520, My laptop after about 10 minutes from being on start showing vertical lines and after a few minutes it justs turns off, or sometimes it would show me the blue screen.
I tested replacing RAM, because something similar happened once with a Desktop and replaced memory and it work , but my laptop did not have the same luck.

How could I diagnose a problem like this?

Appreciate the help!
