To test if in fact it is your video card... try plugging an external monitor into your laptop... If You Get a clear screen No Lines or colors etc.... then it's not your video card..

Lines are common with A faulty circuit board on the display panel, So You Might Need To Replace LCD Display if the exernal test shows your video card is good...

Try resetting the SMC
Before Resetting the SMC Try each of the following steps in this order before you reset the SMC. Test the issue after completing each troubleshooting step to determine if the issue still occurs.
  1. Press Command + Option + Escape to force quit any application that is not responding.
  2. Put your Mac to sleep by choosing the Apple () menu from the upper-left menu bar and then choosing Sleep. Wake the computer after it has gone to sleep.
  3. Restart your Mac by choosing the Apple () menu from the upper-left menu bar and then choosing Restart.
  4. Shut down your Mac by choosing the Apple () menu from the upper-left menu bar and then choosing Shut Down.
If your Mac appears to be running normally but isn't responding, force the computer to shut down by pressing and holding the power button for 10 seconds. Note: You will lose any unsaved work in any open applications.
For Mac portables experiencing issues related to the MagSafe power adapter and/or battery, try:
  1. Unplug the MagSafe power adapter from the Mac and the wall power socket for several seconds.
  2. Shutdown the Mac. Physically remove and re-insert the battery (if it's removable) and startup the Mac.
If the issue is still not resolved after following the troubleshooting items above, an SMC reset may be necessary.
After performing normal troubleshooting, these symptoms may indicate that an SMC reset may be necessary:
The computer's fans run at high speed although the computer is not experiencing heavy usage and is properly ventilated.
The keyboard backlight appears to behave incorrectly (on Mac computers that have this feature).
The Status Indicator Light (SIL) appears to behave incorrectly (on Mac computers that have an SIL).
Battery indicator lights, if present, appear to behave incorrectly (on portables that use non-removable batteries).
The display backlight doesn't respond correctly to ambient light changes on Mac computers that have this feature.
The computer doesn't respond to the power button when pressed.
A portable Mac doesn't appear to respond properly when you close or open the lid.
The computer sleeps or shuts down unexpectedly.
The battery does not appear to be charging properly.
The MagSafe power adaptor LED doesn't appear to indicate the correct activity.

The computer is running unusually slowly although it is not experiencing abnormally high CPU utilization.
Application icons may "bounce" in the Dock for an extended amount of time when launched.
Applications may not function correctly or may stop responding after being opened.
A computer that supports target display mode does not switch into or out of target display mode as expected.

Need to do a system restore

You can try by going to help by the start buttton and searching on restore/recovery and doing so. Or you can go to start, control panel and looking to see if there is a restore\recovery icon. Lastly you would have to reinstall your operating system by putting in the cd and rebooting after pressing F2 and selecting boot from CD. This WILL cause all user data to be lost so if you need it, it must be backed up first.

My LCD screen in LG R40 Labtop is a bit dim I cannot make it more bright.

Did you try changing your power settings. Go to your control panel in start menu and click that. Several icons should come up including power management. Click that and view power options. Change to a performance option. If that works try the next lesser option for performance. Find the best option for your needs between performance and battery life.

The pc isnot bright and its abit dull

Is this a Desktop, or a Laptop. If it is a laptop, you should click the Battery Icon on the lower left corner of the screen. Once you click that, there should be a few options. They are as follows:
Power Saver;
High Performance.
The Balanced and Power Saver options reduce the brightness of the LCD Screen, as well as it conserves energy while running programs and the like. On "Power Saver", your computer may work slower.
If you want your screen brighter, you can select "High Performance". Also, there is an option to personalize each of the three settings. Simply look below the three options where it displays three blue worded links. Click the one that says "More Power Options". This will take you to another page that displays the three settings and below each setting is an option to Change Plan Settings. Once you click "change plan settings", you can choose precisely how bright you want the screen to be for each setting.
Once you personalize the three settings, you are free to go. Whenever you want to dim the screen you may go back to the battery icon and simply choose between the three modes. Hope this is clear enough. Good Luck! :)

Do I need to specially configure my Travel Mate for "high performance mode"?

High Performance Mode is just a Power Configuration Preset Profile.
You can replace, add or edit Power Profiles by navigating to the Power Options menu in the control panel.

So No, You don't need to, but it's nice to edit it to your personal preferences.

Please RATE ME and submit a testimonial, if you would.
Thank You.

Closing lid on notebook, Dell Inspiron 17, with OS Vista, causes screen to blank

I am guessing that you must have an external monitor attached and are attempting to close the notebook and use only the external monitor? If so, there is a setting in "Power Options" to allow you to close the lid and not go to stand-by.

*Go to your Control Panel (Start, Control Panel)
*Select Performance and Maintenance, then Power Options - or - if you are in Classic View, select Power Options
*Select the Advanced Tab
*Under the Power buttons section, select "Do nothing" from the drop-down for "When I close the lid of my portable computer"

Can i change experts

Please select the Safe Mode option. If you no longer have that option whenever you turn your computer on. you can press on F8 after power-on. If you are able to boot in Safe Mode, please try to do a system restore (Start-All Programs-Accessories-System Tools-System Restore). Choose a restore point with a date known to be a time when you never experienced this problem. If you are not able to boot using any of the advanced boot options, you will need to do a full system recovery (reinstall the OS). Hope this helps. Thank you.

Acer laptop booting only if battery removed and on main power

try disabling ACPI (Advanced Configuration Power Interface) in BIOS screen, if you have that option. Something does not agree with Windows control of all ACPI devices...could be the modem or ethernet network. Also, if no success, try disabling "allow this device to wake computer" for either (or both) the modem or ethernet network devices in control panel-system devices option screen.
