The gas in the screen may have become unbalanced. I replaced my TOSHIBA screen a couple of years ago for $75. on Amazon after both Toshiba and SparePartsWarehouse wanted $167
i had to have a technician install it because the hinges are mighty tricky.
1. clear your cache, goto internet options half way down on page you will see delete click it. 2. sounds like there starting up with the pc, click on start or run button bottom left then type in msconfig then press the enter on keyboard, look for start up take out what you dont need, hope this helps, paul.
What is happening is the settings that you have set on your laptop are too high for the monitor to recognize.
You will need to reduce the resolution settings in you display
properties which can be found by going to start-settings-control panel-
display- and in the display area choose settings.
Some video cards will let you adjust each item. Some you have to use the same resolution on both screens.
Shout if you need furthur input !
I had the same happen to me.. it started with one white vertical line.. then got the whole rainbow (red, green, blue).. Solution: Try connecting an external monitor.. if there is no problems, then it's not the video card or chipset.. it's going to be the lcd.. you can get it on ebay for about $200.. hope this helps..
Your panels are dying.
Well more to the point the driver tabs that run the panel are dying and are not going to be cheap to repair for either case.
For the stand alone LCD, it is cheaper to get another one.
For the laptop, find a laptop on Ebay or similar with a dead motherboard and swap out the screens, also gives you spare parts for the laptop. If you goto a repair shop and get a screen it will cost you as much as a new laptop.
