All in One PC monitor buggered


Recommended Posts

I have a custom built AIO PC from PC Specialist, yesterday when I was just booting it up, the screen went crazy and started flashing purple and green and was basically unusable. Somehow I managed to navigate to the drivers section in Windows 10 and uninstalled the Display Adapter driver (as per Google's advice). I then rebooted the PC and it re-downloaded drivers via Windows Update. Now the screen is really fuzzy, it's better, but still pretty unusable.

A bit like this but not quite as bad and only in the top 1/3 of the monitor screen:

I have also downloaded the latest drivers from the Intel website. Anyone know how to fix this? I've checked the plug and the fuse. Should I take it in somewhere or just buy another one? It cost about £600 2 years ago.

Depends. If your name is Gary and you are the leader of a gang it's probably a bad idea.

That's how to reset an Etch-a-Sketch BIOS, when you have forgotten the password.

If you can't see the BIOS or recovery options, etc then that sounds like a hardware fault.

I don't know, but what's worrying is that the BOIS has the same issue , i.e. when it's booting up, the issue happens there too.

OK, you are not a web twonk. My apologies.:o

I see you are using Spynix BOIS.

This.

If it 'works' for those first few seconds when you turn it on and then doesn't, it's a Microsoft fault.  If you can't fix it give it to a 12 year old and tell them to fix it.

If it never works it is a hardware fault.  It might be fixable (tighten internal screws or whatever), but probably not by you.  Take out hard disk and put in a caddy (as it will contain all your useful data), then buy a new machine.  Feel free to give it to an expert (not 12 year old -- probably 18 or something) to get then to fix it, but it is much less likely that they'd be able to do it.

It works perfectly for about 10 seconds after logging into Windows 10.

Then it flicks between the flickering (for about 5s) and working again (for about 2s). And repeats.

 

So in other words the flickering isn't constant. I can't figure out why it works well for a few seconds on initial startup, though.

I fixed one once by turning it upside down and shaking it 😊

I have already tried this :D

Is that repairable generally or should I be looking at buying a new one? :CryBaby:

I had one do exactly that, it was a samsung one IIRC and a known issue with the power supply rectifier diodes overheating due to a faulty batch.

Easy fix if you get exactly the right ones, being impatient I put ones I had in but they were the wrong frequency or something, turned it on, worked for a minute or two and then fried itself.

Got a new one from Ebuyer.
