    Sounds to me like the graphics chip may be over heating and failing. Cleaning out dust and/or replacing thermal pads could help - but not very practical for anyone not familiar with tearing apart laptops. Can you look into the side vents and observe if there is an accumulation of dust? One...

    How to Detect USB External Modem

    Do you mean that if you press [F2] at the proper time your machine does not enter the BIOS settings utility? How very strange :\ There is usually a very short window of opportunity to press the correct key in order to enter the BIOS settings. Generally just a few seconds. Sometimes it takes...
