    I have the same problem. Its a bummer. It has been partially resolved by upgrading the memory by 1GB and loading the latest BIOS software from Dell. I think its something to do with overheating but my comp only crashes once a day now instead of constantly - whoop de doop

Screen particially blacking out with vertical lines at bottom of my DELL laptop. at the bottom of laptop screen there are vertical lines @ 2" they are blue, dark gray,white, purple, light green lines....


Tryconnecting an external monitor to the laptop. You may have to select the videooutput to display on the external monitor by holding down the blue key and pressing the blue CRT/LCD (located on one of the keys, likeF8,F9, etc..). If the problem occurs on the external monitor with the batteryor AC power, then you have a problem with either the video card or motherboardin the laptop. If the problem does not happen using the external monitor thenyou laptop's LCD display is going bad.

Thin vertical yellow line and a white vertical line appeared on ibm thinkcenter r52


What is happening to your laptop is the power line connecting a row of pixels is failing so only partial colors are showing up causing the vertical lines. Usually screen replacement is the only answer to fix it. You can usually find replacement LCD on Ebay.

Hi, i have AL1716 monitor (2 year old). Recently, there is a blue vertical line which appears on and off sometimes in the monitor. Can anyone suggest on a solution


Is the vertical line always at one location ? (on the screen)
If so, it appears that the video card/driver (on your PC or laptop) may be causing the line to appear occasionally ... i.e. flaky ... and it will likely fail (completely) in due time. To confirm it's the video card, try using another monitor (long enough) to see if it happens.
[ The line may also be caused by "dead" pixel on the screen ... but this usually happens on randomly located pixels on the screen, not on one vertical line. But, it may also be a possibility ... in which case, using a different monitor may prove it one way or the other ]

Vertical colored lines have appeared in my display.


turn on the system by pressing FN key and then the power but this should start up the onboard diagnostics let me know if the line are displayed during the diagnostic if it does the its the graphics. when it ask you if vertical or horizontal bars were displayed. select N so it can test the LCD panel if the lines are displayed there then it is your lcd panel.To make sureyour lcd panel is fine it will display solid colors.

Windows Vista freezes while loading up& Blue Vertical Bars appear


Hi

Reflashing the bios doesn't make any difference.

Check in the BIOS Screen whether notebook scree has the same issue if it is the same then it is a hardware issue if it is fine in the bios screen then need to run the hdd and memory test

After the test result we can decide next steps

> If hdd and memory test passes - then reload the os.

To login to bios - Reboot the system and keep tap on f10

This is a fault with the TFT display controller, Unfortunately this kind of fault is not User Serviceable, If this item is within manufacturer's warranty send it back and they should fix it for you, (REMEMBER TO BACK UP YOUR DATA as they may choose just to replace the whole thing)
