Question about Dell E171FPb 17" TFT LCD Flat Panel Monitor

Inspiron 8500 laptop monitor; vertical lines & color bursts

When computer is first turned on vertical lines appear in different shapes either linear or zig-zag columns, then the screen will blotch out into different colors & black & white moving left to right across the screen. Eventually the screen either blanks out completely in black or different shades or sometimes faults to blue screen when in then dumps its physical memory. These are intermittent problems that have progressively gotten worse to the point that it now won't come up at all so the reguslar Windows desktop is visible. Previously this probelm was intermittent and sometimes the computer would clear itself and work properly even though in start-up the above symptoms were displayed for a couple of minutes until they cleared. It seemed to be heat related because it would work fine for an hour or two then fail. Now it's failing imemdiately. HELP!

It sounds to me like you are having a problem with the video card on the motherboard, I am not familiar with this model but some you can remove the video card and upgrade, some you can not.if you can upgrade you can try this
if you cannot remove the video card then a new motherboard will be required to fix this computer.
you can look on ebay for a replacement at a reasonable price or talk to your local computer service center.
hope this helps.

Colored vertical lines on my monitor


Depending on the age of the monitor, it most likely will be Capacitors that are leaking. I have repaired many different brands of monitors and have seen problems very similar to yours. 99% of the repairs I do are capacitor Issues. It's well worth replacing them IF the screen is still in very good shape as far as brightness and contrast. most repair kits usually cost between 12 and 20 dollars.
Hope this helps!

Why does my monitor have colored vertical lines?


Hi Shannon,

I don't have good news for you. Coloured vertical lines is a symptom of terminal failure of LCD screens. Most common in laptops, monitors, and TVs. Problem only gets worse with time with more lines appearing, then expanding to cover a whole side of the screen. 30 - 50% normally.

the problem is with the gpu inside , i suspect that overheating or continual use of the laptop for long periods has meant that the solder oints holding the gpu to the circuitboard have started to short. Chances of repairing the motherboard are slim and a replacement will be needed.

Dell Inspiron 1501 Laptop-6'' Red Vertical Line


The color red and especially red colored lines or a pinkish hue are indicative of an impending screen failure. The only other possibility is that the data cable on the left backside of the lcd panel may be loose at the socket or on the motherboard. 9 times out of 10 though, it is the lcd panel that it failing.

Vertical white line in center of monitor


Your monitor may have been cracked somehow...

Try restarting and look to see if the line is there immediately from the start or does it only show up when your operating system (windows/linux) loads?
