W530 Blue tinted/Corrupted resolution via Integrated Graphics

#1 Post by Nevadita » Fri Sep 21, 2018 10:40 pm

Ello.

I have encounter this rather weird situation, yet again.

if i boot the laptop with graphical device set either on Integrated Graphics or Nvidia Optimus this is what i get. Blue tinted image with low resolution image. this for both BIOS and Windows. (windows cannot even detect a proper Intel HD card at all)

but if i set the graphical device as "Dedicated Graphics" on the bios,the image came crystal clear both on the bios and on windows aswell.

i mention "yet again" because the same happened to me 6 months ago and i fixed it by replacing the entire screen (i didnt bother to test the dedicated gpu) , but at this moment im a bit of a crossroads, as i dunno if this is the Actual screen yet again (which i doubt as i can get clear image with the dedicated GPU) or something related to the motherboard.

if anyone have any idea i would really appreciate it.

thanks

Try another CPU, that's where the integrated GPU sits.

Also, run MemTest 86 to check the RAM and slots for possible failures in this area.

Good luck.

Thanks RBS, im ordering an i5 really cheap, for testing if the IGP is the issue or not.
