Graphics issues with laptop

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Last summer I bought a used Gateway MT6460, haven't had too much trouble with it until now. I booted it up a couple days ago, and when it came up the screen had horizontal deformities a few pixals wide covering the entire screen. I thought it may be the screen itself at first, but I can boot into safe mode no problem, since the resolution is reduced. I tried going into safemode, unistalling and deleting the drivers (it's a Radeon x1150 I think, I'll update this when I get home and check for sure). When I boot back into windows using the craptastic resolution from the stock windows 7 drivers, it works fine. But as soon as I download and install the new drivers its back to being unuseable.

And suggestions?

It's your lucky day. I have had the same issues with my Vostro1000 which also has a X1150. The best drivers to get are the catalyst 8.12 found here.

They say Vista only, but they are hands-down the best drivers for the x1150 and win7. Once you have downloaded, you need to right-click on the file and go to compatibility and choose "Windows Vista"

After that right-click again and choose "run as administrator"

These drivers work great with only one exception. Fullscreen youtube will cause a driver crash. But I have a fix for that as well. Go to youtube, and right-click a video. Choose the settings. You will see a checkbox labeled "enable hardware accelleration" You will need to uncheck that. You should still have no problems playing back videos, it is just a flash conflict with the x1150. The x1150 is the worst-supported piece of hardware ever.

Anyway, that should fix you right up. It only me 10 hours to figure it all out. It took you one post on OCN. Enjoy.

Thanks for the link! I did everything exactly as you said to, but every time I try to install it I get to "enumerating source media for installable packages" and it freezes there. Anything I need to do differently?

Download DriverSweeper and install.
Then uninstall drivers and reboot into safe mode(hold f8 before windows logo) and open DriverSweeper > select uninstall amd graphics. Then reboot back to normal windows and right click the install file and select run as administrator.

This.

Except Driver Sweeper now must be obtained from the source:

There are people having problems with what's on Guru3D.com now.

Gandalf: can you change the line in your sig that says "I'm on the seafood diet: I see food, I eat food" so that it says, "I'm on a seafood diet: I see food, and I eat it."
