Question about Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook
I have an Acer 1640 (archaic I know) widescreen laptop. I started to get a small pink discolouration in the bottom corner of my screen. Now it is a full pink vertical line that is about 3 cm wide. I can see it when I boot my desktop and it is green when I open microsoft word. Is this a screen issue. As it has increased in size i am guessing the problem is only going to get worse until i try and fix it. thought I'd check here before I take it in for repairs.I have tried to change the res. and colour on the desktop as suggested in another persons problem but this has not worked.

The only other thing that can be done to check that it's not a software problem is to go to my computer>right click>properties>hardware tab>device manager and look down the list for 'Display Adapters' and click the '+' sign and right click and select uninstal. Restart the laptop and the graphics adapter will be installed automatically and the driver installed. see if there is any change. To find out if it is a driver fault, press F8 on startup and select 'Start Windows In Safe Mode', this will boot the laptop without the graphics driver (VGA mode,all the icons will be large sized), so if the screen stays the same you know it's not the driver. If none of above fix the fault then the screen is faulty.
