Question about Acer X193W LCD Monitor

1 Answer

Scrolling colored lines on the monitor, overlaying the screen.

When I turned on my laptop, colored lines streaked and stayed on the monitor. Its appears that programs are running behind the lines, but the lines are obscurring everything. I'm not sure what happened. My computer's monitor has upward-scrolling static-ey lines once it connects to the computer. The basic startup-ACER logo is perfectly normal. I already tried messing with the cable (ie tightening, loosening, switching) to no avail. I think it must be a problem with the motherboard, but the computer isn't that old. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

You either have extremely screwy drivers, a bad cable or your monitor/panel is shot. Replace any of the above to resolve the issue.

Pink screen


If the pink lines or streaks are across the screen then this indicates the CCFL lamp will fail soon.
To confirm it is not the video chip on the motherboard, connect an external monitor to your laptop, power up the monitor first and then boot up your laptop. The video will automatically divert to the external monitor and if the Windows image is normal then this confirms a problem with the CCFL lamp and it needs to be replaced.

Hello:
Your most likely cause to the color flash on your screen is a bad LCD panel. One way to troubleshoot this is to hook an externa monitor up to your laptop, and observe the display on the external monitor. If it is ok, then your LCD is the cause. If you still experience the flash, you could have a motherboard video problem, but unlikely.
There is no easy fix to get rid of the flashing line. If your laptop is still under warranty, or even close, I would contact HP /Compaq customer support and explain your laptop's problem.
Hope this helps !

Yea i have a gateway 450sx4 laptop and when i turn it on it stays black for a while and when the screen finally turns on it blurry and its different colors and it just shows lines how can i fix this?


It's likely that your screen is "fried" (faulty) ... try to connect your laptop to an external VGA monitor, and see if the screen shows up (on the external monitor) properly. You may have to toggle the output display (device) from computer screen to external monitor ..using Fn+F3.
If it displays on your external monitor properly, it means your laptop screen is no good. You can replace the laptop screen, or just continue to use the external monitor.
If it does the same (blurry & different color, etc.) on your external monitor, then, your video card/module on your laptop is bad. This usually happens less often.

Please check the VGA cable at both ends to make sure there are no bent pins and fit into the socket properly at both ends. Also try this monitor with other PC also since it can be in the video card.

If it is still under warranty and faulty, then send it back. It does not sound like a do it yourself task.
