Question about MSI L1350D-1672US Netbook

2 Answers

Msi L1350d screen has tiny horizontal lines

Upon boot up the logo is perfect for maybe a second and then gets very thin horizontal lines all across the screen. Sometimes the lines are solid and sometimes they are dotted. Sometimes they show up as white dots on a dark image and black dots on a light image. Sometimes they are solid black no matter what the background image/text is. Every once in a great while the screen or a part of it is perfect for a few seconds but then develops the horizontal lines and appears to "fade" a little. I connected a vga cable and the output to my tv is perfect. The netbook screen is usually readable with the lines but occasionally a previous pop up takes a while to fade away. I have done a "factory restore" where it is supposed to format c: and reinstall windows and I have gone to the bios and chosen to load defaults (yes the lines are in the bios setup too). I have also done all windows 7 required and optional updates. I have loaded the Intel GMA driver option in control panel and chosen all defaults. I tried to update the graphics driver for the Intel Graphics media Accelerator 3150 in the device manager and it says it is the latest. I have toggled through the screen outputs (Fn + F2) and it does the same thing in each one. Any suggestions on whether it is the screen or video card or what I can try next??????

If it works fine when you connect to your tv then you've probably got a loose cable on the screen. You'll have to strip it to check.

SOURCE: How to Replace Bios? Boot & Reformat Attempts Hang (on every HDD) - I guess BIOS is Corrupted

You can go to the manufacturer web site and go to support then to drivers and downloads there should be a BIOS flash software utility at their site. Click Here to go there. Select your model and make sure it is the correct one. I would also go for the automatic driver update, this will find and seek any drivers for your laptop that are needed, missing, or upgrade them.
If that does not provide the info you need their is also a support number as well as live chat at the link above. I hope this assisted you in some way. John

SOURCE: cdrom driver not working

You don't update the bios unless you change to a newer processor,
that isn't supported by the version you have, if you find the system
is less stable then before, reflash to the old Bios.

There is no download for a cd or dvd rom, you only have downloads for chipset, graphics, sound, touchpads, ethernet, and a few other things.

Cd, dvd roms, use windows drivers,So you don't have to look for drivers.
There is something wrong with the unit, if you can plug in any other
cd or dvd and see if it works, to rule out motherboard problem.

If it works, you can see if is under warranty or you will have to get a new one.

Any questions, post back.

Safe mode is accessed by hiting F8 repeatedly just after the logo or POST screen. This may or may not allow you to get past your password, depends on if you have an actual administrator account activated.

Thin white horizontal lines!!! I've had my WEGA KE-42M1 for 5 years with no problems until about three months ago. After about an hour being on, there are thin white horizontal lines that move randomly...

Sounds like your TV is giving out, plain and simple.

If this doesn't sound right, then only one thing comes to mind. Have you moved the TV recently? Are you using a different coax cable, (if using cable that is). If so, just change the cable back to the previous one and you should be fine.

Tv not working

this symptom, sometimes called the tube light effect, it is characterised by a bright thin horizontal line across the middle of the screen. this symptom is caused by a breakdown in the vertical deflection circuit. hence maybe the trouble maybe in the vertical oscillator, amplifier or output circuits. but if all i have said is not clear to you, better bring it to a qualified tv technician. good luck!

Horizontal 'pinstripe' lines on all channels

sound like the screen control on the flyback is set just a little too high. the flyback has the red wire attached to the tube. the flyback has 2 small adjustable controls. if you look close enough 1 is marked focus & on is screen. turn the screen slightly to the left & look at your picture. the screen is like a master brightness & if it's up too high you will see what is called retrace lines. good luck.
