Verticle lines on monitor

My monitor has four verticle lines running through the length of the screen. It appears as if the entire line is missing the image information. The spacing of the lines is irregular. Does anyone know how to correct this annoying problem?

Screen has 1 white verticle line runs through screen from top to bottom amost in center of screen how to adjust or is it permanent


1) check both ends of video cable AND power cable are firmly plugged in.
2) update the device driver (or reinstall the current one if it is the latest issued by the constructor).
3) does this line permanently stay on your monitor, or not (it fades away after some time in session) ? does it appear everytime you switch the monitor on, or not (comes only from time to time) ?
If both answer are NOT, then there's a problem either with the monitor, OR the graphic chip in your computer.
To determine which is failing, try plugging your monitor on an other device, or plug another monitor in your computer.

Verticle lines/streaks down screen


The Display panel could be bad/damaged or the main board that controls every thing could be bad---parts for Dell equipment are known to be hard and sometimes impossible to find.

I have a Dell computer with a flat screen now all of a sudden there are fine pink verticle lines along the right side of the screen. There is also a group of fine pink verticle lines about 1.5 inches wide...


Try the following steps:
  1. On the monitor, press Menu, and select Factory Reset.
  2. If the monitor has more than one type of connection available such as VGA, DVI, or HDMI, try a different type of connection.
  3. Connect the monitor to another computer. If the line appears when the monitor is connected to the second computer, the monitor might be damaged or defective.Otherwise, the video card and driver is causing the problem from the computer.let me know if this resolves ur issue.. if not then we need some other steps.. regards,guru

There is a thin white verticle line on the monitor.


Open this link and make it full-screen. Watch the screen for 20 seconds or so to see if the line of lit (white) pixels remain.

If this line remains during this, and even when the the computer is first starting up, it is most likely a row of "lit" pixels caused by a faulty connection or circuit inside the display.

While you can sometimes rub the area of the screen near a single lit pixel, an entire line of them usually denotes a more complex problem that can only be fixed by having parts replaced by a technician

Note: Be sure all of your cable connections are securely fitted, and that the line is there no matter what is displayed on the display (especially at the boot screen before Windows loads).

What can cause a single red line to appear on my laptop LCD screen? It's a small/fine red line appear horizontally (left to right) It's NOT radio interference,back light,broken ribbon cable,or connector...


Thats a generic problem with LCD screens. Its more common in Mobile screens. Sorry, no there is no fix to it other than replacing the LCD itself. Just pray that it shall not grow because as and when the compressed gas from within the LCD will leak the line will be becoming broader and broader. It is caused by damage to the LCD corner Just a hit on side of LCD and a hairline crack for giving way to the encapsulated gas.

I will assume the line goes from top to bottom and is straight.
If so bad news I am affraid. It is the driver tabs that go from the panel to the physical panel controller board and is not making correct contact.
This will normally continue to get worse until you lose entire bands of the screen.

Sorry for the nad news.
