Laptop screen has been invaded by green and red/purple germlins
Turned on laptop instead of normal black screen with prompts in white, it was bright green. As it should turn to all blue, the blue did not expand to the full screen, instead a CD looking graphic was in the left upper corner and the bottom of the screen is a horizontal band of stripes in blues, reds and purples. The Gateway graphic is a strange blur. Other than red dots in odd spots on this screen as I am typing, the laptop works. Never had a problem like this in thirty five years of using computers. Is this a sign this laptop is not long for this world?
Same for me. I'm writing this on a 5 year old laptop. There are colored broken stripes on or around some of the graphics. Sometimes there are so many it can be difficult to see through them but most of the time it is like now - I can use the computer - everything else functions normally and I can see around or through the 'extra decoration'.
Re: Laptop screen has been invaded by green and...
Sorry to tell you but you are describing exactly what an LCD looks like when it has been fractured. Does it work with an external monitor? If so you will need to have it repaired. Call the Fujitsu support number (800)-fuj-itsu and they can tell you where a repair center is in your area. The call is free. Have your serial number handy.

Basically, there are 2 possibilities:
1. The connection at the back of your screen is lose, so you need to tightened this connection (usually the flex cable's connector),
2. Your laptop screen is dying, so sooner or later, you need to replace your screen.
When you say that your laptop "screen is dim", do you mean that there is no light coming from your screen, but you can see images on it? or do you mean that there is light coming from the screen, just a very little amount?
If you can images, but NO light is coming from the screen, then the LCD backlight is dead, and it needs to be replaced.
If there is light coming from the screen, but it's very dim, then you'll need to find the screen brightness adjustment keys on your laptop. This is usually two keys. The first one is normally in the lower left corner of your laptop and should be a different color - like blue or purple, and will be labeled something like "Fn". The second key is normally in the function key row (F1, F2, F3, etc...) and has a symbol on it that looks like a sun or burst of light with an arrow. There's usually one for "brightness UP" and one for "brightness DOWN". Hold down the Fn key, and then press the "Brightness UP" key a few times to see if the screen brightens up. Good luck.
Upon loading press F2 or del to enter bios setup and change the settings to display the acer welcome screen and the one you said about Microsoft logo and white box with green lines, you cant by pass it because it's windows loading screen
Either the lcd cable is loose on the inverter board, the lcd cable is going bad, or the inverter is going bad. Usually this can be fixed by removing the power button bezel and making sure all the cables are seated properly on their connection. Removing the power button bezel varies from laptop to laptop, sometimes there are screws on the bottom of the laptop that you need to remove and sometimes there are not, it just snaps into place.
A pink or red screen which may gradually turn back to it's appropriate color indicates the lcd is going out. It could last quite some time in tht condition, but it's going. replacement isn't too bad though.
