Hi, A white patch about 6 cm wide is appearing on the right side of my screen. The patch is a little translucent and see through. I read somewhere that another person faced an identical problem and had the patch of the same size and colour and later the patch colour changed to solid blue. Could the problem be with the LCD, the inverter or the graphics card?

Hi, It sounds like the resolution on your machine is set too large for the screen. Right click somewhere on your desktop where there is no icon. Assuming you are using Windows 7, there should be a Screen Resolution option in the little menu that appears - click on that, then try changing the resolution to 1366x768, which may even say Recommended next to it in brackets. If that still doesn't seem right, try some of the others, until you are happy with the display. Hope this helps.
Hi , and thanx for using our site .. My advice is that you have a resolution issue ...if the strip is present in both sites..it means that you are using a wrong resolution ...so get into the video properties and try a few configurations ...until you get the one fit for your screen ...(I deduced this cause it is not present in another monitor..so it's not an physical or system issue...but probably you have a wide screen and a wrong resolution in use.. have a nice day
I have had a few old thinkpads (T21, 23) that had screen issues. I know that in these older models, there were issues with the LCD cable. Unfortunately, you have to take apart the LCD and play around with the flat cable that connects the MOBO to the LCD. In the cases I came across, I replaced mine with Ebay'd replacements. Its a bit of a gamble... In your case, it could be the connector may be coming loose. If you are the DIY type, I suggest you start by locating the connector that goes to the MOBO, disconnecting it, blowing it out, and firmly reconnecting. See if that fixes the issue.
Oh, I would assume that you did the obvious and rebooted etc etc.. to make sure it is a hardware issue...
