Display problems - missing borders and colours

Something has changed with my laptop that some background colours, borders are not displaying. I notice it mainly on websites.
For example on this page the shading in the Top Experts is not showing (I have a second computer open so I can compare). To the right of this subject line on the problem laptop I can not see the box at all that says "Summarize your problem..." And there is no box around the "Submit" button below.

Can't figure out what has changed - has a file been deleted?

Good day,

does this problem only occur when you are browsing the internet? if so, this might be an issue on your internet browser. what internet browser and version are you using (internet explorer, firefox, etc)? you should also consider that some websites behave differently on different browsers.

try installing the latest available internet browsers available, i recommend that you use firefox 3.0.

i hope this will help

Reinstalled Windows 7 on Dell 5720 now have black border on display

connect an external monitor/tv/display and look at the patterns of the external display. If it's clean, that means your display is the one damaged. Reinstalling windows won't help at all.
Try touching, moving, pulling, pushing the display from the top edges, and if you see any change on that border, you can tell the cause.
Usually the cause of this black bands to appear are for miss using the opening or closing of the displays, that is, using one corner to open or close the screen.
Hope that helps.

How do i change the background of my dell 1012

Changing your background will first depend on what Operating System you're currently running on your Dell. I will assume you are running the OS that came with the machine which is Windows.
If you have a particular image for your background, make sure that photo is saved in a folder somewhere within your documents.
1. Select the "Start" tab. (Bottom left)2. Select "Control Panel"3. Select something along the lines of "Display" or "Display Preferences"4. Once you have located your display settings, you should find some options for your "desktop image" and "background settings."5. Be sure to save all changes so the background will remain the way you'd like.
Hope this helps,

Try plugging in an external monitor and see how the display shows on it. If the display is ok on the external then your LCD Screen is going bad. If it shows the same colors on the external monitor then your video graphics card has issues.

The display panel appears to be your problem but i would replace the video inverter too when you replace it.Replacing just the display panel should do the trick though.

How to change background

These tabs are the only way to change the background or screen saver. The display properties are integrated into the operating system, so, if the tabs are missing, this is an error with the operating system. Start with a system restore. Keep going back until they show on the display properties. If a restore doesn't work, then you will need to do an operating system repair with your recovery or operating system disc.

Screen display size on Thinkpad A22p

your system might have damaged the systems video drivers and reverted to legacy.
try to re-install the display drivers again.
if you look in the system/device manager for the display it may just say vga , which can only give you 800x600 native mode.
if you right click on the desktop /properties
advanced /display adapter it should have the name of your video card.
