Notebook screen lines

Hello all! Started off having north-south 'lines' on the left hand side of the monitor which changed in size/colour as i adjusted (open/closed) the monitor angle. Now they are permanantly monitor is illegible on that side. Questions: has it got to do with the hinge/video cable, do i need a new screen or cable or is it fixable? Had a nintendo ds2 that did the same thing once and a friend pulled it apart, put it back together and it was fine!!! Don't know if this is the same... Any advice appreciated...thanks. RL

IT may be simple as reseating the ribbon cable on the side of the LCD display- the initial problem indicated that, but now the cable may have become totally unseated. Otherwise it may be just a bad cable. Try plugging the Laptop into a CRT or external monitor, if the picture is fine, reseat or replace the connecting cable to the LCD panel in the laptop. Kegtapper

Dell sx2210 how do I change the size of the screen?

  1. Navigate to the Control Panel in Windows by left-clicking on Start, followed by Settings and then choosing Control Panel.
  2. In the Control Panel window, open Display. Note: In Microsoft Windows , depending on how your operating system is setup, you may not see the Display icon. To correct this, click on the link on the left-hand side of the Control Panel window that saysSwitch to Classic View.
  3. In the Display Properties window, click on theSettings tab.
  4. Locate the Screen resolution slider on the left-hand side of the window. Under most circumstances, the best choice is 800 by 600 pixels or 1024 by 768 pixels, possibly higher if you're using a 19" or larger monitor. The "best" setting is highly subjective to your personal preferences.

I have a Sony 1410 LCD monitor, when it is powered up the screen displays vertical coloured lines on the left hand side for about 60 ml wide and the remainder of the the screen displays grey and black...

In most cases, this could be due to two factors. One - Your video card is losing life. Two - Your Sony monitor is almost dead. Simple way to trace the root cause is - borrow a monitor from your friend or someone and check. If the borrowed monitor works fine - it is the video card, that should be changed. Else, go for a new monitor.

Lastly, often people forget to check the cables. Sometimes broken pins or bent pin at the connectors could cause the problem too.

Connect your monitor to a different desktop or laptop, to see if the problem "moves" with the monitor.

Connect a different monitor to your computer, to see if the computer's video-card is causing the problem.

Coloured lines on my screen

What type of notebook is this. Most dell models you can remove the plastic power strip above the keyboard. You need to lay your notebook screen flat so it is level with your keyboard then use a flat head screwdriver to gently pry open the bezel from the left hand side. Once that is off you can remove the two screws attaching the keyboard. Then reseat the lcd cable which should be in the cetner. Have you tried connecting your notebook to an external monitor. If that does not work then your video card is bad.

Coloured vertical lines down lcd screen

To isolate the issue, i strongly recommend to connect the notebook to the external monitor by VGA port which had BLUE colored on the notebook. So that if it is normal then you need to confirm the issue is with the LCD display.

I can send you a powerpoint presentation that explains it in a little more detail. To really learn how to read latitude and longitude you should pick up a copy of “Chapman’s Piloting and Seamanship.”

The earth is divided into parallels of latitude and meridians of longitude, also known as lines of position.


Latitude is measured north and south of the equator, with the equator represented as 0 degrees, and the poles being represented as 90 degrees North or South. Latitude lines are paralel to the equator. For example, if I was at the equator I would be at 0 degrees. If I traveled exactly 60 nautical miles to the north, I would be at 1 degree North, and if I traveled another 60 miles I would be at 2 degrees north. Your GPS display will preface the Latitude measurement with an “N” for positions North of the equator and an “S” for positions south of the equator.

Longitude measures your position east or west from the Prime Meridian, which is a line represented as 0 degrees that bisects the earth from north to south and passes through Greenwich England. Halfway around the earth at the International Dateline Longitude is 180 degrees. Measuring Longitude is a little more complicated because the lines are not parallel and requires an accurate clock (your GPS) to compare time at your location relative to the time in Greenwich England. Your GPS display will preface the Longitude measurement with a “W” for positions west of Greenwich and an “E” for positions east of Greenwich.

To make more accurate measurements each degree is divided into 60 minutes. Because the lines are parallel, 1 minute of latitude is equal to 1 nautical mile. Each minute can be further divided into 60 seconds. Each second is roughly equivalent to a distance of 100’ Instead of seconds, the default setting on your Garmin breaks the minute down into tenths, hundredths, and thousandths for meven more precise measurements. Because they are not parallel, lines of Longitude are measured the same way, but the distances vary depending on how far north or south of the equator.

To find out where you are with a GPS, you need a map that shows lines of latitude and longitude on it. The lines will be labeled on the map or along the borders of the map. Most nautical charts show the latitude measurements along the right the left border of the map. Longitude measuremnts will be shown along the top and bottom edges.
