There's nothing you can do. It's hardware related. Either the video card (gpu) or the lcd (most likely) is failing.

You'll have to replace some hardware to correct the issue.

Try using an external monitor, if the lines still appear then your video card is the problem, if not it's most likely the lcd.

Sorry for the bad news but it is what it is.

    Most laptops have a vga plug, just plug the monitor into the plug, make sure the monitor is on, then turn the computer on, it should automatically display on the external, if it doesn't try pressing FN + F5 on the keyboard, most laptops are setup this way.

    Let me know what happens or if you have any snags.

Dell Latitude D505 half of screen is black with colored vertical lines.


Sounds like you have a section of dead pixels. This can happen if the laptop has been dropped a lot or stepped on or some type of impact on the laptop. This is a hardware issue. You will need to have the screen replaced. In my opinion, by the age of the laptop, its better off getting a new one.

Nothing but multi colered lines verticly on the screen


Try this:
Turn it off.
Disconnect power cord and any other device attached to it.
Take battery out.
Without anything attached. Hold down the power button for 10-15 seconds.
Connect the power cord only.
Hold down F2 (while it's off)
Turn it on while holding down F2.
Let go of F2 when something comes out of the screen.
If multi colored lines still appears.
You have either defective LCD(screen) or video card.

I have a "purple" stripe running verticaly down the left side of my screen in all modes (Cable via HDMI and VGA) It looks like the video is wrapping around, and I do not know how to adjust it.


Purple stripe of "LCD panel Death". In most cases when there is a color strip across or down the screen, means the lcd panel it's self is gone down. In this case, cheaper to buy new flat panel tv. In some of thses models you could have a back lite out, not likely, as when the lites oare out you don't have color on that side.

I have red lines up/down on my Vizio, how can I correct this?


Your sympton need to be more specific, but if what you see is 1 or more tiny lines running from top to bottom of screen (verticaly) and those lines change colors (red/green) depending on the background color on the screen, then your control board need to be replaced, you will need your TV model and product code, both located in the back of the TV next to serial number

Yellow line on left side of screen-


If this is only happening on one input like your cable input and the dvd player is working great on a different input, then the issue can possibly be signal related and not a problem with the tv, if this haapens on any input you are watching, check to see if it affects the menu if it does then your looking at a Logic board issue, if it doesn't affect the menu but happens on multiple inputs then you have to replace the signal board

Acer 3003lci will not boot up.


sounds like locking up on boot, hence why nothing happens when you hit F2, try tapping F2 as soon as you push power button, if still hanging, you may need to take it to get looked at, could be a number of things causing it to lock up
