CNN reported that a squadron of 8 new F22 Raptors going on deployment to Japan from Hawaii approched the international date line and all onboard computers DUMPED! Communications, Fuel management, Weapons, everything.... gone. Airbone "reboots" failed.
They had to return to Hawaii with the guidance of their accompanying fuel tankers. Could have been serious but those are just the kind of bugs you need to work out with new aircraft. A "Tiger team" of experts found the error in the comptuer code and had the Raptors on their way in 48 hours.
Now the question:
I bought a new 19" flat panel monitor. Works fine on a newer laptop but on my older laptop I have a problem. Program windows display fine, but if I try to run a movie from the DVD player, the window for the movie itself (which appears fine on the laptop) appears as a blank square on the flatscreen. The "older" laptop is a Compaq Presairo 2100. Is there a display configuration I can change to help or will a fix involve perhaps a new graphics card for the old laptop? The laptop display resolution is set to 1024 by 768 pixels.
Image of what appears on the flat screen monitor is shown below. The blank square on the flat monitor is filled with a movie sceen on the laptop. The exact same problem occurs with three different DVDplayer programs.
