Re: monitor problem

I think you have dead pixels. You need to visit an electronics repair shop immediately to fix it. Replacement may be necessary. Good Luck.

Jonsnell electronic do you no about the blue line that comes and go down middle of screen pc

Probably a faulty screen, check by plugging in an external monitor. If the external monitor has no line, your screen needs replacing, if the line is still there and the line is not caused by a windows picture, the GPU is possibly in need of reballing or replacing.
Hope that helps.

Aspire One screen has gone dim.

Inverter is inside the LCD Screen. Mostly at the bottom in the middle. To locate the Invertor, you have to take apart the LCD Screen by removing the LCD Frame, removing rubber pads & screws (depending upon the Model of notebook you have). Moreover, the cause of dim/ dark display could be the faulty lamp. So, I recommend that you check both the Inverter and Lamp.
Another likely cause is a bad connection of power from motherboard to the LCD. So first check the connectors/ wires for any damage before proceeding to replace Inverter of lamp.
For your convenience and idea about LCD Display, I have found a general link about CCFL replacement. Click here for detailed and graphical DIY instructions about LCD disassembly.
Make sure you take proper precaution while working inside LCD, as the inverter generates a very high voltage.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

I want to know how to make the page type (font size) bigger so I can read the pages i browse easier to read. Print on the pages are to same. thank you

right click anywhere on desktop>properties and set the screen resolution to a smaller value.

To change your monitor's resolution


Right-click the desktop, and then click Properties.



In the Display Properties dialog box, click the Settings tab.


Drag the Screen resolution slider to the left to decrease the resolution of your monitor, making text and pictures appear larger. Or drag the Screen resolution slider to the right to increase your monitor's resolution, making text and pictures appear smaller.



Click Apply to have the new resolution take effect.



If the Monitor Settings dialog box appears, look at your display. If you like the new resolution, click Yes. If you do not like the resolution, click No, and return to step 3 to try a different resolution.


Click OK.


Microsoft Windows XP changes the resolution to the settings you chose.

I had a vertical line on my laptop screen

A line on a LCD screen (like a laptop) is caused by a faulty power connection in the screen.

Usually a entire row or column will not activate causing a black line to show. When you closed your laptop, the screen is powered down. When you opened it back up, the screen would be reinitialized and it appears that you lucked out on your issue.

When a row or column fails it is usually a permament failure that can only be fixed by a monitor technician or a screen replacement.

A similar failure can happen that causes black dots to show on the screen. These are burnt out junctions where the rows and columns meet together. The dot is commonly called a pixel.

My toshiba laptop has a thick white line down the screen

The normal cause of lines across the LCD of a laptop is a damaged video cable. The unusual cause would be the video card itself.

To determine which item is at fault, you need only attach an external monitor to your laptop's video-out, and then swap your monitor view to 'both' or mirrored (usually just the function key (FN), plus one of the Fkeys...look for an off-blue picture of a monitor on the Fkeys).

If the lines across the screen also appear on an external monitor, then the video card is damaged.

If the lines only appear on the laptop's LCD, but not the external monitor, then just the laptop's internal video cable is damaged.

Hope this helps.

Verticle line down the middle of lcd monitor.

This is a common problem with LCD screens. It is pixel line damage and the screen is permanently damaged and is not repairable. It will probably get worse. The only answer is to replace it

Acer Aspire 9300-3655: Shuts Downs When Idle

It sounds like you are getting a blue screen error.
Most of the time these are resolved by manually running CHKDSK /R

To check for a blue screen error, right click on "My Computer"
Go to properties, click on the "advanced" tab, Click on the "Startup and Recovery" settings button.
Under "System Failure" uncheck "Automatically Restart"

Now if your computer is restarting do to an error then you will see the blue screen.
The important information to give back is the 0x000000** part which is displayed.
