    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...

There is just three lines that show red, green and blue.


It has been my experience with Sonys that those three colored lines indicate that the set is having trouble with the data communication lines. The hitch is that a model as complex as that one has as many as five seperate clock/data lines and if any one of them goes down the set will exhibit your symptom. It will take a professional to track down which line is causing the problem. I've seen audio output IC's as well as tuners cause the problem.

Red lines on Sony KP51HW40 Rear projection TV


Yeah, seen that more times than I shoulda in the last 4 years. The red picture tube has a cathode to heater short. That means it's no good. That red picture tube is no longer availible. But all is not lost. There is a company that rebuilds those tubes reasonably. Most reputable tv shops will know this. The ones I've done cost around $450 out the door. One minor hitch is that with all the shipping involved the job usually takes about three weeks. That can be expidited but then the price goes up.

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.
