That is a problem with the Video Card. My old laptop started having that problem too. Try to download new drivers for your laptop if possible. If your laptop is still under warranty and the updated drivers don't work, call Acer to ask them about it, and possibly send it in for repair. If your laptop is not under warranty you can:

  1. Find new parts on eBay and try to fix it yourself (not recommended), or
  2. Buy a new laptop - pricey, but it may be your only other option.
Hope this helps,

Vertical lines in video


It sounds like you installed a video codec or driver which isn't compatible with your other codecs or drivers.  If you replace them both, you'll be covered, won't you?

Video freezes up to vertical lines or blue or white screen


Clean the CPU cooler and everithing else from the dust!

Turn off,open the case, use air spray to clean.
(I use vacom cleaner and a small brush, but you risk your component if you do the same! I'm professional.)
