Question about Dell Inspiron 2200 Notebook

2 Answers

Lines on screen

It started about a year ago with one thin green line.  NOW I have, besides that original thin green line:  a thin blue line to the left of original, a thin blue and thin green to the right of original, another green to the right of those two, then a thin red line to the right of that! I've been told it's not a pixel problem, that it may need something called degausing? HELP, it's driving me NUTS! Thanks In Advance

    Thanks, my Inspiron is a little over 3 years old, therefore NO WARRANTY.
    Thanks, tho.

  • yarnwright Sep 13, 2008

    Now that sounds like a plan.  I've troubleshooted and it tells me that this device is working properly, but I COULD always 'roll-back' if your suggestion doesn't work, yes?
    Thanks again.

    None of the suggestions offered so far have proven fruitful. If I had a financial sponsor, I'd get a new monitor or something, but since bux are a huge issue, I guess I'll just live with it.

    Thanks for the suggestions tho.

My dell inspiron 2200 has the exact same problem. When it occurs I grab the top of the screen and i act as though I am going to close the screen quickly. I don't close it all the way, when I open it again the lines are gone. Good luck

Laptops do not have degausing thats only on rct screens what you have is a pixil problem and the lcd or plasma is in need of repair or replacement, if your laptop is under warrinety i sugjest you bring it in soon.

Thin vertical blue ink bleed line from bottom of Malaprop screen - Fades over time


Hello,

Yes, it's a screen problem. It could be a loose connection of the LCD and the motherboard or the lid lights gone bad. You can fix that by either resetting the connection of the screen and the motherboard or replacing the whole screen. You would need a technician to do that.

My IBM R52 laptop displays some vertical thin lines (red,green,blue,white,etc). I noticed this problem arises basically IBM R52 and R80 models. Some of my friends too are suffering from this problem and...


This sounds similar to a fault i had with an old dell laptop... very thin vertical lines running the length of the screen. Unfortunately it was an LCD problem, the screen was kaput replacing the screen solved the problem.

To test if it is an LCD fault, simply plug your laptop into an external monitor... if you get no lines on external monitor then its a faulty LCD screen.

Is that solution genuine enough for you?

The cause is a failure of the LCD, and you can fix it by replacing the LCD.

2 Vertical lines on screen


It's either one of these things is dying:
Your Screen, or
Your video card
You can find out which by hooking your computer up to an external monitor, and if the lines appear on it, then it's your video card. If not, then it's your screen dying. And so you can either get a new screen, or a new computer.

Vertical lines in my laptop screen


There can be 3 possible reasons for this
1)Screen connector cable is loose. You can try to re-seat it and see if works.
2)display card problem. Connect your laptop to an external monitor and see if the problem persists. If it does not then
3)You will need to get a replacement LCD screen.
Hope this helps!
