The video card (built-in on the motherboard) maybe faulty or the LCD screen is faulty.
Connect an external monitor to the video port of your laptop, power up the monitor first then boot up your laptop. If the video card id OK then the laptop will automatically divert the video to the external monitor. Then the problem is a faulty LCD screen.
If the external monitor also displays black vertical lines then you have a faulty video card and since it is part of the motherboard it is impossible to fix.

Will it boot from a CD/DVD? Make sure the boot sequence is set to boot CD first and then see if it will boot into setup from a CD/DVD. If it will, then maybe try reinstalling windows. Hope this helps.

White screen with red blue vertical lines


If the unit was dropped there may be nothing you can do. If you are skilled with electronic repair you may check the circuit board connections inside, but internal damage to the board or screen will most likely be beyond repair. If the unit is fairly new there may still be warranty coverage, check with Garmin.

ASUS U31F White screen with vertical line


What that is, is a loose connector in the hinges of the screen. It's just happened to my U31F too, press in on the screen near the base and it should go back to normal while you're pressing it.

Hello,

IF YOU HAVE A SOLID BLACK LINE RUNNING VERTICALLY THEN YOU HAVE A FAULTY MATRIX INVERTER. IF CENTRAL THE MAIN VERTICAL INVERTER NEEDS CHANGED. LEFT = LEFT VERTICAL INVERTER RIGHT=RIGHT.........

ANOTHER WAY TO GET THIS FAULT IS WORN OR DAMAGED RIBBON/PLASTIC GOING FROM THE SCREEN MATRIX TO THE INVERTER
I hope this will help in solving the problem....
