Question about ASUS Eee Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Half the screen is white, half the screen is colorful

I have an ASUS G73JH laptop that has incurred something I haven't seen before. The left half of the screen is white with horizontal lines jumping around. The right of the screen is a mix of colors. It kind of looks like a tie-dyed t-shirt. On the color side, I can make out the desktop there. On the white half I cannot see the desktop. My cursor is operational but I cannot see it on the white, left side. Anything I can open (like BIOS) is half blocked out by the white, left side. I'm sure it's a coincidence, but I did use compressed air a few hours (8) earlier to clean out the laptop. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

I would try using an external display. That will prove the GPU. If it is OK then the display is faulty, if not the GPU is faulty.

SOURCE: Laptop Screen Has Different color lines

screen fault, needs new one but if it doesn't happen to an external one.

hook up a normal pc screen to the side vga and see if the same is there, if the same then it's possibly the refresh rate is too high or a motherboard issue

SOURCE: Dell Inspiron 1501 screen half black

Had the same problem. Fixed it though. Here's how:
You'll notice that the screen comes back to life if you press down on the very top of the green line. This is because a controller circuit board behind the LCD screen (at the top) is pressure fit flat-surface-to-flat surface to the contacts on the back of the LCD. Eventually, the sticky substance that holds this circuit board in place wears thin, collects dust, etc.. and the connection between the circuit board and the lcd contact is lost. The line appears where this break in contact has occured. 
So, the solution is to increase the pressure at that point to reestablish the connection. I wasn't able to remove the circuit board to clean beneath it as it seemed too likely to cause damage. Nor would I have had the right adhesive to connect it back, so I simply removed the LCD and put a bunch of tape at that point so that it would "push" with a little more pressure when screwed back into place. Worked great.
To remove the LCD, pull off the 6 feet around the screen. Remove the screws behind them. Carefully pry off bezel with a small flathead screwdriver working your way around it. Once removed there are simply 4 screws on the left and 4 more on the right of the LCD to remove. Pull out screen carefully and start stacking bits of tape on the spot where pressure seems to work best. Put it back in and see if you've made any difference. I did this with the computer on so I could verify my results. Just be careful not to short out any naked contacts.
If this doesn't work for you, at least you'll know you just need to replace the LCD, not the video card. Easily found on ebay.

Replacement lcd screen not working on g73jh


I would check and make sure that the replacement screen is fully connected. It may have come loose when reassembling. Make sure everything that you removed and unplugged is replaced.

If you're having trouble with the keyboard lights, hold the Fn key (right next to the left ctrl key) and press F4 to get the keyboard turned on. There is also the button at the top left corner that turns lights off.

Right half of screen is Black with a White vertical stripe


Yeah, I have this exact same problem, except my mom slammed my laptop shut in frustration around half an hour ago, so that's why it's like this. The right half of my screen is black with two colorful stripes (mostly white), but the left half is visible. I've researched a bit and found out that this is because the LCD in your monitor has burnt out, and since you don't have a monitor to attach, the only thing you can do is to go to where you bought the laptop and either get it fixed for free or return it for a brand new one (if your warranty still stands). If not, you might as well get a new laptop. I think my warranty has expired, so I'll get a new laptop, hopefully.

Hope this helps!
