White on one side of screen with black spots and colored lines


You can use the following website to try and fix some of these pixels that are stuck on the wrong colors:

However, it may just be a defective screen. You may need to have it replaced under warranty (and this most definitely will be covered)

Horizontal red flickering lines on screen


I've seen this many times (red or pink lines) on an LCD screen when the video chip is over-heating... When is the last time you blew the dust out of the heatsink/fan area? Get some canned air and blow it out. Unless it's plugged really bad, the fan has died, or there has been permanent damage to the system, this should clear things up. Also, make sure you are using the laptop on a HARD surface, not actually on your lap, a pillow, couch, cloth covered table, etc. It needs airflow to keep it cool...

Screen is showing all black things red


It sounds like your screen might be going bad. Normally there is no setting you need to be doing to adjust colors on your screen. There are some settings when you click Start/Control Panel/Display to look at your display settings, but these normally just control the color around the windows. For example the normal or default color for the strip that is at the top of your internet browser is blue but you can change it. I would say that when you boot your machine if the colors are not what they should be normally during the boot process, then your screen is going bad. You might try Opening a Word Document then type words such as Black, Red, Green, Blue, Yellow, etc. on different lines in the document. Then highlight the word and change the font color to match the word. This might let you see if your colors are true colors or if the screen is bad.

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.

Red instead of black screen


Looks like you have a problem either with the LCD inverter or the video card. Unfortunately your best option is to call Dell for out of warranty repair options, that is if your computer is out of warranty.

HP Pavilian external monitor color problem.


The easiest thing would be to check your cable for a bent or loose pin. Next put another external monitor on the laptop. The circuitry to provide video to the laptop screen and the external monitor are separate except that they share a video processor and video memory. There can be bad electronics involved.

Vertical lines in my laptop screen


Have you tried hooking it up to an external monitor?
This would ensure that it's the screen and not the video card..
If you do that and you receive a good picture then it could be something as simple as a loose video cable. Or it could also mean something like a bad video card or the expensive one, a bad screen.

Some black colors are replaced with red blue flickreing in whites


Hi there
Firstly reinstall the graphics drivers, if its still the same there is a problem with the graphics card and you'll have to have it looked at.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!
