Vertical Lines in the Monitor

The monitor on my Dell Inspiron 9300 has many vertical lines. Lines are
multi-colored and are increasing daily. Is the only answer a new monitor? What started out as 1 vertical line on each side of the monitor has grown to about 30 lines in six months.

    Mine also has a thin green line about 1 1/2 inches from the right side of the monitor; this developed yesterday, less than 24 hours ago. The computer was bought 11/11/05, so it's out of warranty. I hooked it up to an external monitor, and the line wasn only present on the LCD. The line was present during the pre-boot testing and the LCD testing that Dell's website had me try. I don't have the extra money to call them, so if it continues after reseating the cable, I will most likely end up replacing the LCD myself.

Unofortunatly your monitor is going going going and maybe gone. If you are still under warranty call Dell ASAP, but it turns out that this issue is very common. There have been lots of complaints of monitors only lasting as long as the warranty period.

The only real solution is to replace the LCD. It is any easy fix for a DIY project if you have a bit of time and patience, if you dont then you are looking at spending on anywhere from 200 - 500 on parts and labor.

Why does my monitor have colored vertical lines?


Hi Shannon,

I don't have good news for you. Coloured vertical lines is a symptom of terminal failure of LCD screens. Most common in laptops, monitors, and TVs. Problem only gets worse with time with more lines appearing, then expanding to cover a whole side of the screen. 30 - 50% normally.

Dell Inspiron 9300 Vertical lines


Try re-seating and cleaning, the connection between the display and the Motherboard, (Electronics cotton swab and rubbing alcohol, be sure not to leave any of the cotton fuzz on the connectors.) It will be below the keyboard. If that doesn't result in any improvement, the display will probably need replacing.

Multi color vertical lines on my R40 monitor


this usually means that the display is broken. i'm sorry to inform that this can only be repaired by replacing the LCD module, which costs quite a lot of money (an estimated 60% of the price for a brand new laptop)

The lines indicate a slow failure of the LCD and it is progressive. The system can be connected to a VGA monitor and you can select the External display using Fn + F8 key combination.
LCDs are about $100 on EBay

Numerous, bright, multi-colored vertical lines on 9300 screen


Try taking out the Ram memory first one stick at a time. Sometimes when Ram goes bad or overheats, it first affects the display. If that is not the issue, here is the link to your service manual.

LThin ines appear on monitor screen


Hi Steve... You didn't mention what type of monitor you have, so I'm assuming its a laptop... if that's true, I've had this happen on my HP Compaq Presario v2000 before. It usually indicates a BIOS problem. Do this: clear the CMOS memory by removing the battery from the mobo for five minutes. Then, before replacing battery, press and hold the power button down for no less than 30 secs. Then, replace battery back on mobo, reassemble and start up laptop... Your problematic lines should be gone... If not, you can email me at bigvalleyelectronic@gmail.com or do a search on same.

Vertical lines in my laptop screen


Try connecting an external monitor to the Dell Inspiron 9300 and see if the vertical line is also present on the monitor. If the monitor display is fine, then your laptop’s LCD display panel is defective. If the monitor also displays the vertical line, then your problem is with either the video card or motherboard located inside your laptop.
Not sure if the Compaq Presario has an external monitor plug, but if it does the above procedure can be applied to that one as well.
