Question about Computers & Internet
My computer is an Acer Aspire 5000 series. I have a problem with the screen. There is a vertical strip going along the right side of the screen that is about 1" wide and 1" from the edge of the screen. When I bought the computer, it was working fine. After a while though, it came up with this screen and the screen had this problem on and off for a while until finally it stayed on even through i rebooted the system a couple of times. I was wondering if it would be a problem with the screen itself or if it would be a problem with the software. The strip has been on the computer continuously for about 3 years. I am confident it is not a problem with screen problems such as an accidental drop or anything like that. Thank you for your time.
Its most likely a hardware issue...
Either the monitor is going bad or the video card is going bad. Ive seen software do some odd things but usually it was because the hardware wasnt within tolerances. If you have a way to test the monitor on another system or test another monitor on that system that would be the only really good test to figure out where the problem is coming from. Hope this helps!
