You may have damaged the screen itself... did you hear anything breaking or did the monitor itself bend.
there is a possibility that you have pulled the connector for the screen partially loose. disassembly is required to confirm that. and attach the cable properly.
I'm hoping you have a dell as they seem to have excellent manuals on their site for disassembly instructions.

Why does my monitor have colored vertical lines?


Hi Shannon,

I don't have good news for you. Coloured vertical lines is a symptom of terminal failure of LCD screens. Most common in laptops, monitors, and TVs. Problem only gets worse with time with more lines appearing, then expanding to cover a whole side of the screen. 30 - 50% normally.

How to remove white and black leakage screen


Your lcd screen has gone bad and needs to be replaced. To isolate that it's the screen or the video card borrow a monitor from a relative, neighbor, friend or co-worker and plug it into the laptop. If the borrowed screen displays fine without any problems then your original screen is bad. If the borrowed screen shows the white area with black leakage ink as your old monitor then the video card in the computer is bad.

Plug in an external monitor and see if thedisplay shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crtmonitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vgaport. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will showon most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systemswill require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold downthe FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thruF12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will havethe icon of a display.

Hi, My acer laptop screen gets color vertical lines and cant see anything else. sometime it works fine but after some time it gets lines again


HI There,

The easiest way to troubleshoot your problem is to connect your laptop to an external monitor. If the lines on the laptop screen don't appear on the monitor, then you know you need to replace your screen and screen inverter.

If the lines appear on the external monitor as well, then your video card on the motherboard of the laptop is failing and you'll need a new motherboard or want to consider a new laptop, depending on the repair cost.

Regards,

Marcus

From yesterday i have been getting this streak flash type of line on the bottom of my screen ....being display in every 2 secs ...green or white in color l though its not hampering the operation of the...


Hello:
Your most likely cause to the color flash on your screen is a bad LCD panel. One way to troubleshoot this is to hook an externa monitor up to your laptop, and observe the display on the external monitor. If it is ok, then your LCD is the cause. If you still experience the flash, you could have a motherboard video problem, but unlikely.
There is no easy fix to get rid of the flashing line. If your laptop is still under warranty, or even close, I would contact HP /Compaq customer support and explain your laptop's problem.
Hope this helps !

LCD screen is busted


Once a lcd screen is busted there is no other choice but to replace the lcd. You can always hook the laptop up to a monitor in the meantime and use that for your output.

No display on screen


It's either the backlight lamp or screen inverter is busted. Here's how to determine which is which:
  1. Grab a flashlight.
  2. Boot up.
  3. Shine the flashlight onto the screen.
  4. If you cannot see any display even a faint one, the screen inverter is dead, else the backlight lamps are busted.
  5. Replace which ever is the culprit.

Screen with a weird flickering and coloring on Acer 5715Z laptop


To determine if he video card is faulty, connect an external monitor to the laptop's external video port, then power up the external monitor and then the laptop. The video info should automaticall switch to the external monitor. If you see anormal Windows image on the monitor then the video card is OK and the fault is with the LCD screen, could be the video cable/connector. Try reseating the video cable/connector to the motherboard.
If the video card is faulty and because it is part of the motherboard it is extremely dificult to repair, usually a replacement motherboard is required. This may not be a cost effective solution depending the age of the laptop. You could remove the hard drive from this laptop and insert it into an USB hard drive adapter case and use it as an external USB drive.

Monitor is busted


Hello David,

I think along the lines like you. $500 dollars is a good chuck of money and alternatives would be my first choice. My suggestion is to check both ends of the cable harness the plugs into the screen and to the mother board. Make sure both ends are inserted properly.

Next thing is to test - power up the laptop and see if that made a difference. If not, it may be the screen or the motherboard. So test further by pluging in an external monitor to check to see you get a good picture/image. If so, then that means you need to replace the laptop screen. If you dont get a good picture/image, than that means your motherboard needs replacing.

Hope that helps and good luck.

Vertical screen lines and resolution is in extra large format.


Possibly either or a hardware fault..
Does the pc have an external monitor port? Most do.. If you can get another monitor, plug it up and use the correct hot keys (keys on your keyboard) to switch between the laptop monitpr & the external, it might help diagnose the problem. Maybe select a generic driver for the external monitor.. Although the pc will probably pick it up ok. If you need further help, let me know. Rgds.
