Common problems with the display

Resolving the issues
To narrow down on the likely problems experienced, the following troubleshooting tips can act as a guideline. Foremost, remove the video graphics drivers installed and reinstall them afresh. The reason being that the drivers may be corrupted and thus result in blurry and fuzzy images on the screen. The drivers are part of the system recovery CD supplied with the laptop at the time of purchase. After the installation process, connect to the Internet and update the driver files with the latest releases provided by the developer online. Flickers on the screen can be due to a loose card connection. Open the system casing and check for any existing loose connections, if the warranty period has lapsed.
