    I was not asking about a PRESARIO but about a DELL Inspiron so am not sure your response is apt.All the same thanks for your response. Do I need to change the laptop or can a change of screen do? May be you can also tell me how much a change of screen will cost?

The pixels are shot - common for lower priced LCD monitors. Once it starts, it will continue. Theres no inexpensive fix for it - time to retire the Compaq

    The category it is listed in is the "Compaq > Presario M2000 PC Notebook, so I assumed it was a Compaq you had.



    Since Compaq was bought out, I also assumed that your laptop was an older one. If your DELL is newer, then it comes down to economics. Replacing a screen will likely run anywhere from $300-$450, so its a question of how that equates to the value of the laptop.



    If you want to pursue replacing one, I've heard good things about a Houston based company called Screentek: http://www.screentekinc.com/

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.

My dell inspiron 9300 has a thin yellow line running down the left side of the monitor. some weeks it will be there, sometimes it won't. help!


Reseating the video cable eliminate those lines that appear.

If your not familliar in tearing down the laptop, try bringing the computer to a local tech and have the video cable reseated. They can open the hinge cover/panel in order to access the video cable at the back portion of the laptop.

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.

Yellow vertical lines on the screen


This is usually an indication of a faulty connection between the screen and the board. Sometimes a tweak rid the lines, but more than not its time to change the screen or just live with it.

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.

Dell 9300 screen

This is a known factory defect. Dell has a recall on it for Inspiron 9300 shipped between Nov 2004 and Nov 2006.

I just called Dell Tech Support (1-800-624-9896) to get this replaced and they are fixing it free of charge because I bought mine in December 2005. They are sending me a postage-paid box to ship back the laptop (remove the battery before sending it back to them, per instruction).

NOTE: Not all Tech Support people are well trained. The first time I called earlier today (Nov 21, 2007), the tech said (incorrectly) that only units shipped between Feb and March 06 are covered and denied that Dell would cover it for me. I was fuming mad.

Then I surfed around and found the link above which is Dell's official response. I called Tech Support back and got a better tech person. Moral of the story >> if you're certain your computer is covered per Dell's official statement, don't let the tech guys push you around. Email them the link from their own site if you have to. Better yet, just hang up and call back and hopefully you'll get someone who knows what he's talking about.

When you call Tech Support, have your Express Service code ready. They use this number to loop up whether or not your laptop is in the recall group. This number is at the bottom of your laptop on a long skinny oblong white tag.
