Windows 7: Toshiba Satellite L655 1GJ (Snow Effect?)

Toshiba Satellite L655 1GJ (Snow Effect?)

Okay people, I didn't know where to post that but since I'm not too familiar with laptops, I decided to post here.

I just recently got my new laptop, it's my first one, I really like it. You can see the model on the title. I've been noticing a few stuff on it that didn't really attract my attention until now.. The screen goes a bit like snow effect, it doesn't really ruin the image and it's not too obvious to see but if you focus closer on it, you can pretty much tell that it does that effect.. I don't like it at all.. I'm not sure though it's the Windows 7 that causes that, I plugged my 42" Plasma on my laptop and everything was fine.. Is it a problematic hardwear thing? Can I do anything about it?

Thanks for taking some time to read this, I really like my laptop but I'm a perfectionist, everytime I buy something, it turns out to do something that I'm not really keen of. Looking forward to your replies.

- Wael.

I would contact Toshiba unless you've made some significant changes to the computer (drivers, programs). A new laptop should not have any problems.

  • Thanks for your reply.
  • Sorry for my late reply.
Apparently, it was a hardware problem. Unfortunately, they store which I bought the laptop from didn't any of the same breed on stock. So after looking and looking, I ended up replacing it for a Sony Vaio of the same specs, plus some more disk storage. I can't say I'm disappointed, I'm loving my Vaio already.

Thanks again my friend.
