    thanks, again ghoff1, looks like there may be a problem with the cable you spoke of, when i moved it forward slightly lines went away instantly! i may leave it in that position, until someone can what wire is broken. i'm afraid i'll make it worse opening and closing the lid.screen is good though. many thanks!

Hi, you say the screen has lines in it after we got it going, but the picture on the screen is visable? ok i have seen this before. the screen is conected to the board but there are wires that go through the hinged part of the notebook, so opening and close action can wear it out, or just get pulled loose. do this! whilethe unit is on slowly move the screen in a open close action. watch the screen and see if it does anything. if you need further help with this, reply. good luck, once more. hope this is helpful.

    hello, it might just be a wire, if you bend them long enough it will break. so if you can find the failing wire, you may be able to solder it. good luck! glad to help.

Sounds like you have a defective lcd screen, there are these conductive rubber pieces that lead the signal into the lcd panel and once the connection deteriorates there is no going back. this could still be replaced, there are laptop repair places that do it, but you have to have to weight your options with buying a new laptop, repair could be up to 50% of what your's is worth as a 2nd hand laptop. there are also guides online that show youhow to do it yourself, that may make it worthwhile.

My laptop has been working well until today it starting showing coloured lines running from top to bottom. What can I do to stop this?


Basically, your screen is dying. Sooner or later the screen will display more color lines. If somehow it is not acceptable anymore, then you need to replace your screen. The screen cost is around $55 (at eBay). If you can't install the new screen, then you can ask local laptop tech person to install it; it may cost you $50 or more. Sometimes, pressing the top of the screen (where the line is displayed) may solve the problem.

What follows is not a solution. Just an experience. I also had a single line which developed to two adjacent lines within a week. What I did was tap the screen along the 2-pixel broad line. To my surprise, those pixels which did not work gathered into a cluster at the top of the screen in a small rectangle - probably the number of pixels that do not word did not change, but at least the problem did not remain a hindrance while reading...

Different lines of color appearing at the top of screen


Connect an external monitor to your laptop. If the problem appears only on the display of the laptop and not on the external monitor (in the same time) that means the video card is ok and the problem could be: the screen of the laptop or the invertor or the cable that attaches the screen to the motherboard. If the problem appears on both screens, external and laptop, most probably the video card/motherboard is defective.
Have it checked/repaired by a professional.
