LAPTOP OR NOTEBOOK COMPUTERS HAVE A KEY ON THE KEYBOARD IN THE LOWER LEFT SIDE THAT HAS A "Fn" MARKED ON IT, SHOULD BE BY THE CTRL KEY. PRESS THIS KEY ALONG WITH AN "F"KEY, NORMALY F5, ( HAS 2-BOXES WITH A DIVIDER LINE), WILL CAUSE YOUR SCREEN TO GO BLANK AS IT IS NOW SENDING THE VIDEO TO AN EXTERNAL MONITOR. PRESSING THE 2-KEYS AGAIN WILL APPLYTHE VIDEO TO BOTH MONITORS, THEN PRESSING BOTH AGAIN WILL RETURN IT TO YOUR LATOP ONLY.

HI, shows blinking green line of about 2mm at the bottom of the screen of my VAIO. Could you advise to resolve the issue


Most of the times this is a screen issue. Meaning that you will have to change your screen eventually.
To be sure, connect the laptop to an external monitor and look at the display of that screen.
If you see the same green line, then the motherboard could be defect.
If you do not see the green line, then there is something wrong with your laptop screen.

If the screen is malfunctioning, the first thing you should do, is open the laptop, and check the wiring of the screen. If this does not solve the error, you should replace the screen.

The display on my L675 S7048 is flickering badly. My whites turn pink, and my blues turn green. I see it when windows starts, even the Microsoft logo has tiny green dots all around it. When I connect an...


WHITE is a mixture of the three "primary" colours.
If one of the colours is not working, then WHITE turns PINK.

So, either your LCD display is malfunctioning,
or the "data" cable between the LCD and the motherboard is malfunctioning (not transmitting all 3 signals),
or the video-card embedded into the motherboard is malfunctioning (not sending all 3 signals).

This is nothing that you can fix by yourself; take your computer to a qualified technician, for trouble-shooting and repair.

I have a Toshiba Latop (P105 S6217) (SN=17122387W) (Mod=PSPADU 00W00S). In recent days, I am getting very thin lines across my display screen. Could this possibly been the Mother Board going bad. The...


You possibly have a LCD screen failing, but to be 100% sure, you should hook your laptop to an external monitor, and see if the display is good . Any desktop monitor will work. If your display is good, you know your LCD on your laptop is failing, and if it is the same display as your laptop, you know you have a video chip problem on your laptop motherboard.

Periodically the screen is captured by horizontal lines completely across the screen. Cannot access programs or even shut down properly. Any suggestions. Presario 700 laptop using Windows Vista. Thanks


This issue is due to the malfunctioning of the screen or due to any other internal hardware malfunctioning of the notebook.

To further isolate the issue, I request you to connect the external monitor and check.

Once after connecting the external monitor, please tsp Fn+F3 Switch between the display and external monitor in the following order:

Display
External monitor
Display and external monitor

If the external display is fine then the issue either could be due the malfunctioning of the display cable connector between the screen of the notebook and motherboard or due to the malfunctioning of the screen.

As this the hardware issue, Please contact the nearest repair center to get it resolved.

Multiple lines on screen


Try connecting an external monitor to the your laptop and see if the vertical line is also present on the monitor. If the monitor display is fine, then your laptop’s LCD display panel is defective. If the monitor also displays the vertical line, then your problem is with either the video card or motherboard located inside your laptop.Not sure if the Compaq Presario has an external monitor plug, but if it does the above procedure can be applied to that one as well.

Vertical white line on laptop display


Yes, this is a defective screen. The only fix is to replace the screen. It's called a column of dead pixels. Since it is under warranty, contact HP to have them warranty it out or take it back to the place you purchased it from for an exchange. Please take a moment and give this answer a good rating of fixya. Thank you.

Laptop malfunctioning


Connect any Desktop monitor to the Laptop and check whether the Display. if the display is fine on the Desktop monitor screen then it can be identified as the Laptop screen malfunctioning.
And if the Display has the same issue that on the Laptop screen
then it can be treated as the Display card issue.
However, it seems to be Harwre related issue. Get the laptop veriufied under Technical supervision to repair the Laptop's display card or the Laptop screen to be replaced if the display is fine on the Externally connectd Monitor.

Gateway laptop vertical dotted lines across the screen


Sounds like a problem with the LCD assembly or cable. You may want to reseat the LCD cable at the LCD end. It could be a loose internal connector in the LCD assembly.
