    what is the bios screen matt

  • chrislock2 Dec 15, 2008

    Hi.... thanks for the advise. I have since been to a lap top repair shop where I bought this and they are saying they are sure it is the graphics chip hard ware problem ( what ever that means ) & suggest to replace it on a ibm t42 it will cost around £200 or a reconditioned chip for £150. They say they know this just by turning the comp on! when it starts up I get random different coloured numbers & red lines running down the screen. ~What is strange is that when i highlight the are and click off it it can move or disapear in that particular area. mie999s do you still think I can take to someone to resolder as its hard to believe its not a loose connection prob. I am by no means a computer wizz & dont really know much lingo when it comes to the words bias screen and pcb. I really appreciate your thoughts on this though.

How to fix AOC LCD TV random vertical coloured lines, no response to controls


Sounds like a screen fault. The adhesive that attaches ribbon cables from the drive electronics to the screen has failed. Unfortnately this isn't fixable because the connection and spacing is too fine to get a 100% reliable connection. Some DIYers have used neoprene rubber tubing as wedges to hold the connections in place. That actually works. Search Youtube

Display shows lines and color not displayed properly


A line vertically down the screen (usually bright green) is a failed column strobe. This can be caused by the connections at the top of the screen failing or the strobe chip starting to die.

Random colours can be caused by a cracked screen or a failed video card.

Best to take it to a repair shop for it to be assessed.

Coloured vertical lines down lcd screen


To isolate the issue, i strongly recommend to connect the notebook to the external monitor by VGA port which had BLUE colored on the notebook. So that if it is normal then you need to confirm the issue is with the LCD display.
