Re: the display goes crazy
It's a laptop. Since the problem only occurs from time to time it can be hard
to change to a external monitor, but next time it happens I'll try (if I can
push the right buttons without seeing them....) to connect another monitor.
Since it's a laptop it does not have a degauss button. I can tell that the
video card is a intel 945GM (integrated). The drivers are from windows
update. I checked dells latest drivers for this card, but they where older
than the ones from windows update.
