White Vertical Band on Screen

Hi, my Dell Inspiron has suddenly developed a 1" wide white vertical band on screen. Not there at early stages of boot up - only when windows starts booting. Any ideas please?

Suddenly, I can see only a part of the display width. I can't control the width size in the screen setup (all the other functions are OK)

see that it may be from the resolutions..if you give it a smaller one ..and it is a wide screen format will hae black 2 inches wide band on each side... just right click on desktop properties and settings ..and restore a normal resolution on it ..

Vertical white wide band - Shivering fonts

Unfortunately that sound like a defective LCD panel. You can verify this by plugging the system into an external monitor. As long as the shimmering band does not appear on external display then it is the LCD. If it is under warranty I would suggest taking it into Apple.

White 1 inch vertical band on display

just a thought.. Either your Graphics card or your Video Card has gone bad.. unfortunately DELL has a tendency of putting the graphics ON-BOARD and IF the onboard grqaphics card is bad, you'll need to get into the BIOS and turn the onboard graphics off then purchase an after market Graphics driver.. IMPORTANT: make certain that the graphic cars is compatable with the DELL PC OR purchase a less Proprietary system

Inch wide vertical white band on my Imac screen?

If the white band appears right from start up, the display needs to be replaced, if it comes on after it starts, it is most likely a software problem.

Vertical White Band on LCD Laptop

Your new LCD is faulty. The band on your old one is the end of it I am affraid.
Laptop LCD's although built to take a beating (or so it seems) are extremely fragile. It only take a very small drop to end their lives.
