Yellow screen


There are a variety of problems that can happen to the display monitor of an Acer laptop.
The most common problem is the screen fading or becoming too hard to see.
This can be corrected by adjusting the brightness levels.
Another common problem involves incorrect color, which can be resolved by adjusting the display color settings.
Yet another big problem is the display freezing or appearing jumpy, which can be resolved by updating the display driver.

Hold down the "Fn" key.
Tap the right-arrow key to brighten the display screen.

Tap the left-arrow key to darken the display screen.
Release the "Fn" key to save your display settings.
Color
Right-click on the desktop and click "Graphic Properties."
Adjust the screen resolution by clicking "Display Settings" and choosing a resolution setting from the drop-down menu.
Click "Apply" to check the resolution of the display.
Click "OK" to save the resolution settings.

Adjust the color of the screen by clicking "Color Correction" and moving the brightness or contrast slider to the right or left.
Click "Apply" to check the color resolution of the display.
Click "OK" to save the color settings.

Click "OK" to exit the Graphic Properties application.
Update the Display Driver
Right-click on the desktop. Click "Personalize," "Display Settings" and "Advanced Settings."
Click the "Intel Graphics" tab and choose "Monitor Properties."
Click "Driver."

Click "Update Driver" and choose "Search Automatically."
Click "Install" to install the updated monitor driver. After the driver has been installed, click "OK" to restart the laptop when prompted.
Yellow screen
Yellow tinting in monitors can be caused by either a software calibration issue, bad cables or a worn out display and backlight.
Before you assume that the issue is a hardware one, determine if there are software settings that affect the color or if the cables are working correctly.
After checking these items, and if the yellow tint only occurs on one monitor and you cannot eliminate it, the problem is a display hardware issue and it is less expensive to replace the monitor.

Unplug the power cord from the monitor and replace it with another one.
This is a standard power cord used in printers, monitors and desktop PCs so you can trade it for a cable from another device.
Turn on the PC and monitor to see if the yellow is still there.
Turn off the computer and monitor.
Replace the video cable with another VGA cable from another monitor.
Use one from another computer before going out to buy one.
Restart the computer to see if the yellow tint is gone.
Right click any area on the desktop and click "Properties" from the list of options that appears.
Choose "Display Settings," then "Advanced Settings."
Select "Monitor" and click the "Calibrate Color" button.
Wait to see if the yellow tint goes away.
Locate the temperature color settings on the monitor.
Adjust these to see if there is a change in the color.
A warm color setting will give the screen images more of a yellowish tint.
Click on the "Start" icon, then click "Control Panel" and "System and Security" and choose "Device Driver."
Locate the video driver and click "Update."
Select the option allowing Windows to connect to the Internet to find an updated driver.
Wait for the update to complete in a few minutes.
Expect the yellowing issue to disappear.
Connect the PC to another monitor to see if the same problem occurs.
If the yellow tint does not appear on the newly connected monitor, the problem is a bad backlight or display and the monitor should be replaced with a new one.

After 2 minutes it will show you a rainbow. if the colors are fine press Y else press N. it will give you an error code. call dell and give the error code and get the LCD repalced.

My dell inspiron 4000 screen is green or pink and when I move the curser it's like I am painting with a brush with white paint. The colors are distorted with mainly pink and green


Since you already hooked up a desktop monitor and it works fine then that only means that this is already a hardware issue. Most likely the screen. Contact Manufacturer.

Two vertical lines on my compaq presario (M2000)


Hello,

Try changing your screen desktop resolution to a different value. If you still have verticle lines, then try changing the color depth from 32bit to 24 or 16. If the problem remains your display adapter has completely failed. It has failed to compute column row addressing math.

Naturally, you would want to find and install the latest drivers for your display adapter with the hope that the failure is in the software driving the display adapter and not an onboard chip. If updating your drivers fails to resolve the issue you need to have service performed on your laptop. Most laptops have the display adapter soldered on the main circuit board and many shops are capable of replacing this chip set.

Yet, get a quote first as the cost might cause you to consider an upgrade into a laptop that has a display adapter that is Direct X 9c or Direct X 10 ready as that will run most of the new game titles coming out this year.

Let me know if you have any further need of assistance as you run through the above troubleshooting routine.

I do hope this has fixed ya!

Help with Display Issues


Hi,
this appears to be a screen problem. either the cfl tubes on the way out. Or The Inverter.
The cheapest initial trial, is to replace the inverter, as this is the simplist to replace, it,s at the bottom centre of the screen, and can be accesssed by removing the screen bezel.
If you imagine the cfl tube being like a florescant bulb, and the inverter being the starter. if the inverter isn,t kicking up enough power. the bulbs not getting fully boosted up. also pink tinges can sometimes relate to inverter or cfl ( Laptop monitor tube/bulb ) if you search the internet their are tutorials, and links to these components. alternatively is to buy a replacement screen ( l.c.d panel ) however you might be looking in excess of £300 Or $600.
