White line at bottom of display screen getting bigger.
What do I do about a white line that has been getting bigger that runs across the bottom of the screen? It stays on the screen no matter what I am doing.

Sounds like the LCD has some damaged crystals in it. Try connecting the netbook to an external pc monitor using a VGA cable. Hold the Fn key and hit the F8 or F7 key until the display shows on the external monitor. This will determine if it's a driver/settings or display issue. If the display is fine on the external monitor, the LCD display on the netbook is the problem. Good luck!
Upon loading press F2 or del to enter bios setup and change the settings to display the acer welcome screen and the one you said about Microsoft logo and white box with green lines, you cant by pass it because it's windows loading screen
Try connecting your laptop to an external monitor.Connect it with a vga cable to your monitor and press Fn+ monitor key(I don't know what it is for acer) to switch displays.If there are no lines on the external monitor then the problem is due to the notebook lcd.If there are lines then it is due to a driver.Reinstalling the driver should fix that then.
Horizontal lines on bottom third of my Toshiba (Satellite Pro) Laptop with XP windows got fixed by flicking my finger on the laptop screen! Was it a loose connection? I don't know. Change of screen resolution did not help, Rebooting, did not help nor restoring to prior dates. Thank you guys.
