I have a Toshiba that has done this. Your only option is to have the screen replaced or live with it. You could also hook it up to a desktop monitor when you don't need it to be mobile.

Display shows lines and color not displayed properly


A line vertically down the screen (usually bright green) is a failed column strobe. This can be caused by the connections at the top of the screen failing or the strobe chip starting to die.

Random colours can be caused by a cracked screen or a failed video card.

Best to take it to a repair shop for it to be assessed.

Screen Resolution


Click the "Start" menu. Click "Settings" and "Control Panel."


Choose "Display" and "Settings" in Windows 98, ME or XP. In Windows Vista, click "Appearance" and "Adjust Screen Resolution."


Click on the resolution bar and slide it to the right to lower the screen's resolution and to the left to raise the screen's resolution.


The optimum screen resolution usually depends on the size of the laptop screen.


The recommended resolution for a 15-inch screen is 1024 x 768, 17- to 19-inch screen is 1280 x 1024, and 20-inch screens is 1600 x 1200.


However, you can adjust the resolution to your personal preference.


Click ""Apply to see how the resolution looks on the laptop's monitor.


Click "OK" to save the resolution settings.


Color Setting


Click the "Start" menu. Click "Settings" and "Control Panel."

Choose "Display" and "Settings" in Windows 98, ME or XP.


In Windows Vista, click "Appearance" and "Adjust Screen Resolution."

Click "Colors." Choose 32-bit for a high color-pixel ratio that will make the colors brighter and bring out image details.


Choose 24-bit for a medium color-pixel ratio if the screen is too bright or if images are somewhat distorted.


Some older laptops have a 16-bit color setting, but this setting is no longer recommended as it will distort images and text.


Always Click "Apply" to see how the color setting looks on the laptop's monitor.

Click "OK" to save the color settings


hope this helps

What size display


Please give more details if you really want help. Displays come in different sizes, 14 inch, 15 inch, 17 inch, etc. You have to buy the size you want.

If you are talking about the size of Text on your screen then you can change it by Clicking Start/Control Panel/Display and select Appearance Tab then go down and change the FONT size. Depending on your operating system the Display might be under Appearance and Personalization.
