Colored dotted lines across the screen

Last week my computer started putting dotted lines across the screen when I open up the start menu and most web pages. I use Mozilla Firefox and Internet explorer. It is really bad on Firefox but only does it when I drop down the web address bar on Exploerer. This is getting really annoying and seems to be getting worse.

    I have a Dell Dimension 5520 that is about 2 1/2 years old. The video card is a NVIDIA Geforce 7300LE.. And my monitor is an LCD.

    I have the same problem , but much worse, it's showing dotted screen all the times with very brured colors, purple most of the times, mine is a desktop with a asus A7V8X-X motherboard and a Ati Radeon 9600 Pro card.

    I have the same problem as I told before.
    This is how the screen shows.

    Can you give us more info? How old is your system? Is this a desktop or a laptop? What kind of video card are you currently using? What type of monitor? LCD or a CRT?

If you understand the components of a computer pretty well, open the case and remove and reseat the graphics card into the slot.

Does it seem to only do it after so long, for example turn the computer of for a few hours, and it wont happen when its first turned on, but then a few moments later it starts after its warmed up?
If this does not resolve the issue, you may be experiencing graphic artifacts which can occur when a gpu is overheating due to a poor cooler. Check to make sure the heatsink is touching the gpu.

I have some distored blue color across the screen


Projection sets have two very common problems.

The first common problem is convergence


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

I am getting a dotted line when I print on my hp 4700 laserjet


that dotted line is produced by one of you toner cartridges,put attention to what color the dots are and replace the cartridge.
also there is an option in the menu to disable the cartridge check ,do that under "diagnostics menu" and start taking 3 cartridges the first time and print something,check if dots are present,if not put another cartridge print something and check ,repeat process until you find the defective one.

Make sure you are using the correct cable. If you are using a HDTV make sure you are using a official HDMI cable. If you are using RGB/SCART, make sure you TV is compatible.

Yellow Line at the Top of Screen


Try doing a system reset. Not sure it that's the term they use but that option basically resets the tv to factory default settings. It's in the menu somewhere. I've done the reset twice already for a similar problem. Solved it each time.

Gateway laptop vertical dotted lines across the screen


Sounds like a problem with the LCD assembly or cable. You may want to reseat the LCD cable at the LCD end. It could be a loose internal connector in the LCD assembly.
