When the laptop is ill, the LCD screen turns colors, and.......

NO, KIDDING...........

Problem can be;
1) Graphics chipset
2) Video Cable
3) screen Inverter (IF IT USES ONE)
4) LCD screen

Laptop OFF, monitor OFF, connect a VGA monitor to the laptop.
Turn the monitor on. Turn the laptop on. Is there a display on the external VGA monitor? Is it the same as the laptop's LCD screen? Will Cathy ever find true love? Just seeing if you were following along.

This is what I would have stated, for checking out a laptop with a VGA port on it. I would have then gone into detail out the procedure.
From there I describe in detail, on how to diagnose the other hardware components laid out above.

This way you can find out what the exact problem is, without resorting to buying the wrong hardware component.
For example buying an expensive LCD screen, when the problem was a $9 Video Cable.

If you would like this information post back in a Comment.
Also post what the laptop manufacturer name is, and the model number.
The model number can be found on the Bottom of the laptop.
Regards,
joecoolvette

SOURCE: A pink vertical line appears suddenly on the screen

Sounds like a hardware problem. You should probably return it as soon as possible.

SOURCE: Vertical white line on laptop display

Yes, this is a defective screen. The only fix is to replace the screen. It's called a column of dead pixels. Since it is under warranty, contact HP to have them warranty it out or take it back to the place you purchased it from for an exchange. Please take a moment and give this answer a good rating of fixya. Thank you.

SOURCE: Laptop screen displays vertical lines of various colours

Have you tried to connect your laptop to external monitor?
If you get normal picture on external monitor, then you need to replace LCD screen, but if you get same picture on external screen, then unfortunately you will need new motherboard, because graphics card is integrated to motherboard.

Asides from purchasing and installing a new LCD screen you could try reseating the connectors.

SOURCE: I have vertical lines (15 of them now) on my Toshiba laptop.

I'm afraid when you see vertical line on an lcd panel, it most likely is screen failure. Ebay has plenty of screen from good companies in Texas. I get most of my screens from Ebay store LCDTECH99. They have the best prices, most screens are under 100 bucks and they ship right away. The Toshiba screen is an easy repair, Only the bezel needs to be removed in most cases. Below is a guide to show the process.

Vertical line down screen


This problem can be caused by a lose connection between LCD and motherboard, however you can check it by opening the LCD or hinge bezel to ensure if there isn't any lose connection.

Hi,

I'm Ben and -- hopefully -- I can provide some meaningful assistance.

I'm afraid that that the display will have to be replaced. If you want to do-it-yourself, I recommend the following tutorial video.

Screen is white with black vertical lines upon booting up. I can't get beyond this screen.


The video card (built-in on the motherboard) maybe faulty or the LCD screen is faulty.
Connect an external monitor to the video port of your laptop, power up the monitor first then boot up your laptop. If the video card id OK then the laptop will automatically divert the video to the external monitor. Then the problem is a faulty LCD screen.
If the external monitor also displays black vertical lines then you have a faulty video card and since it is part of the motherboard it is impossible to fix.

2 Vertical lines on screen


It's either one of these things is dying:
Your Screen, or
Your video card
You can find out which by hooking your computer up to an external monitor, and if the lines appear on it, then it's your video card. If not, then it's your screen dying. And so you can either get a new screen, or a new computer.

Pink vertical line


To start try reinstalling display adapter drivers. Try also to start from a boot disk or to install a different operative system.

If it does not go, and does not depend on the system, a static vertical lines is either faulty display adapter or faulty LCD display. Usually the video adapter.

Will it boot from a CD/DVD? Make sure the boot sequence is set to boot CD first and then see if it will boot into setup from a CD/DVD. If it will, then maybe try reinstalling windows. Hope this helps.

Lines On Monitor of Acer TravelMate 4200


Possibly. You have created a dead pixel area, try massaging the area firmly. Just hard enough for it to change colors, but not so hard that it turns black. Then turn it off and leave it overnight. You may have to do this several times to get it to come back. Depending on the damage, you may have a dark spot in this area, or it may not work at all. This is just about the only thing you can do for this other than screen replacement.
