    Hi there about three months ago i started getting lines about 3mm apart running all over the screen from the bottom left to the top right corner. I have wiped the computer clean and have reinstalled everything back on and still have the same problem. They only seem to appear on lighter coloured backgrounds and are identical to each other. Any ideas.
    Thanks

Hi, the issue may with the LCD panel. I work in DELL and have been getting lot of issues like this. It's called vertical line defects.. You can connect and external monitor and press Fn and F8 to toggle the display over to the Monitor. If the display is fine, replace the LCD screen. If the system is under wrranty, call Dell tech support and get a replacement or else call 800-288-4410 (out of warranty repair) department to send your laptop for repair. If the display is the same on the monitor, then the video card/Motherboard has to be replaced.

If this information is succesfull, then please rate!!

I was playing Bewelled 3 on my Acer Netbook and the screen went into horizontal lines and I was unable to see anything. Turned it off and on again and cant see the startup screen, still horizontal lines.


I'll give you some simple solutions...

(i) Juz connect to external monitor, if it working fine surely it is the problem with the LCD.

(ii) Plz make sure that the configuration support this game.

(iii) The last option is repair / re-install the operating system, coz while you tried force shut down, the system files may corrupted...

Vertical colored lines have appeared in my display.


turn on the system by pressing FN key and then the power but this should start up the onboard diagnostics let me know if the line are displayed during the diagnostic if it does the its the graphics. when it ask you if vertical or horizontal bars were displayed. select N so it can test the LCD panel if the lines are displayed there then it is your lcd panel.To make sureyour lcd panel is fine it will display solid colors.

Hello today I had an white vertical line in the center of my PC screen Gateway E2500s series would not shut down from the tower so IV turned it off with the surge and waited a few them turned it back on...


You mention in your post to branded laptops. You can try to check if the problem is from the LCD or from the Video card. Connect your laptop to an external monitor and check if the white vertical line appears, if yes replace motherboard if video card is integrated, if expansion then replace video card alone. If no lines from the external monitor then laptop LCD has the problem.

I dropped my laptop and now the screen is messed up.


Ack. Sounds like you might need to replace your screen (sounds pricey but is cheaper than a new laptop). You can find second hand/refurbished screens or another Aspire with a working screen being sold for parts on Ebay or here

On a side note, if you a have a PC monitor lying around, you can access your files by hooking it up to your laptop via the dvi slot. Granted, it seems a bit ghetto but its a quick fix until you get something more permanent.

I recently broke my iPhone screen and completely shattered a dell laptop a few years ago. You know all those people who are adamant about you buying proper carrying/protective cases? Screw 'em.

When I boot up the screen is all colors and lines


It sounds to me like your cable is loose to the lcd or the video card is not properly 100 percent seeded into the mother board. Prolly the cable in one way or the other, perhaps bad cable.
