Hi Friend, In this case I would recommend you to please try and connect any external monitor to teh system to isolate the issue.
If you see the same lines on the external one as well, then I would recommend you to please try and update the video drivers for the system.
If the display on the external monitor is fine. It means that the issue is with the CRT monitor itself that is either needs to be checked or Repaired
Please let me know if it was of some help.
Thank you.

On the right side of screen there's a grayish area that blocks some viewing


Hi Friend, In this case I would recommend you to please try and connect any external monitor to the system to check if the issue is with the video card or the monitor itself..
If the external one also has the same issue like this original monitor, then I would recommend you to please try and update the video drivers for the system..
If the display on the external one is fine, then it indicates that the issue is with the original monitor itself, so, you can try resetting the monitor settings to factory defaults or, the monitor needs to be checked by the vendor itself.
Please let me know if it was of some help?
Thank you.

one red line going from top to bottom of screen


Hi Friend, In this case I would recommend you to please try and connect any external monitor to the system and check if you have the same line on the external one as well
If you have the line in external one too, it means the issue is with the graphics card and you can try updating the video drivers
but if there is no such line on the external one, then it means the issue is with the monitor itself.. so u need to check with the vendor of the monitor itself.
Please let me know if the advice was of some help?

monitor going berserk


This could be due to corrupt display drivers on the notebook or the video card is going to die. Try updating the graphics drivers on the notebook and check for the issue.

If the issue still persists, then to isolate the exact cause of the issue, I recommend you to connect an external monitor to the notebook and check for the issue on it. If external monitor works fine, then the issue with LCD display screen of the notebook. In case, if the issue persists on external monitor then it states that the video card of the notebook is going to die.

To connect an external monitor to the PC, follow the steps listed below:

1. Turn off the notebook.
2. Connect the monitor cable from the external monitor to the monitor port on the rear/side of the computer.
3. Connect the monitor to a power source and turn it on.
4. Press the Power button to turn on the computer.

At this time, please follow the instructions mentioned below for switching the display to the external monitor:

The notebook's video card supports three modes. Built-in screen only; external video only; and both on simultaneously (mirrored). If you're not seeing the image on the desired device(s), the notebook's video card is probably in another mode. Press FN + F4 to cycle through the display options: Notebook display, External monitor, both.

If you press FN + F4 once, the external monitor will display & there will be no Notebook LCD display.
If you press FN + F4 twice, the external monitor will display & there will be some shading on the Notebook LCD.
If you press FN + F4 thrice, both Notebook LCD & external monitor will display.

If the issue persists on the external monitor, then this could be due to defective video card on the notebook. However, if the display on the external monitor is fine, then the issue is with the LCD display panel of the notebook. In either cases, the notebook requires a detailed onsite diagnosis by a service technician.
