How will I fix video adapter of a computer?

I am recovering my old Panasonic laptop that has Windows XP. At first it worked well. But after the installation of operating system. The VGA Adapter screen colors changed.

Then I uninstalled it and downloaded some drivers from internet and installed then everything was fine. It forced me to uninstall the driver also. The Windows XP runs on VGA adapter. Only problem is too slow and has a vertical colored lines to it. I also tried to removed some driver like the mouse and replaced it with usb mouse but nothing happen. How will I fix the video adapter of my laptop?

Hi JohnQ's,

The problem is the video adapter of your panasonic laptop.

1. Try to connect the LCD screen to an external monitor to verify. If the external video is fine, you have a problem with the LCD screen or the LCD video cable. You can try to fix the problem by reseating the video cable on the back of the LCD and on the system board.

2. If you see the same garbled video output on the external monitor most likely it is not the LCD screen problem. In this case the system board (with onboard video) is bad or the video card is bad.

3. I understand that these tips will not cover all video problems with portable computers. If you have a different problem, you are welcome to leave a comment and I will try to help you if I can.

Hello JohnQ,

It seems like the drivers that you installed on the system have some compatibility issues and hence they are not working properly.You will need to get the right drivers for the computer and install them. Use the following simple procedure to update the drivers:

  • Right click on My Computer and then click on properties.
  • Click on hardware tab and then click on device manager.
  • Look for Visual Display Adapters from the list of drivers and then right click on them.
  • Choose update, and then in the window that will come up, choose to update the drivers online.
  • Note that you should be connected to internet since the computer will check for the drivers online and install them.

Hope this helps.
