Re: Screen

If you have access to an external monitor, you might want to hook that up to your laptop and try it. If the display looks good on the external monitor (which I would suspect that it will) then, you may have a loose LCD cable, a worn cable or a bad LCD display. Try reseating the connector. With the LCD cover off & power on, carefully wiggle and flex the cable and see if there is any change in the display. If not, your LCD display is probably going bad on you.
Hope the rest of your day goes better!

Rainbow stripes and color changing box

If the screen is damaged, then no there nothing you can do without replacing the screen BUT then is it really damaged? I would try and see if a normal image is displayed on an external display via the laptops VGA port and cable. If good than it is most likely the screen BUT I would look into (By pulling the screen covers off, etc to see if all cables from the System board to the screen is connected properly, if they are and also same image is on the external screen then the graphics chip is the culprit...depends on how hard and at what angle etc did the Laptop hit the foot-board.

How can i locate and change my cmos battery for laptop fujitsu siemens v2010 pro

The above post sounds simple it is Not, the COMS battery in a Fujitsu V2010 is located just to the left side of the left hand mouse button,( just about where it says AMILO Pro) (under the top cover)
(All power off battery out)
To get at it you remove all the base cover screws including the four on the back edge.
Turn the laptop over and remove the power buttons plastic strip by levering upwards between the gaps that are to the left of the Num Lock key and the right of the Esc key, (use a very thin screwdriver) or slide a screwdriver between the Num lock key and cover leaver upwards, then do the same at the Esc key side, the four retaining lugs are left and right of the cover.
The screen should be laid flat as you do this or you will rip off the keys.
Unscrew the wrap over bracket (right of screen) that holds down a thin black cable.
Pull upwards (carefully) the three connectors in the two recesses below it. (Two in left recess one in right recess)
The cables in the right recess are held down with a strip of black tape remove it and remove the cable from the retaining lugs.
Remove the keyboard screw and push slightly towards the screen to get at the retaining strap and remove the strap by levering the lugs upwards on both sides, put the keyboard to one side.
The wireless card cable is slotted in a channel lift it out. Then unclip and lift out the card still attached to the cable.
Remove the left and right screen screws and carefully lift upwards and remove the screen with the wireless card still attached, put the screen to one side,
Remove the four RAM cover screws and lift off the cover put to one side.
There are 3 tiny screws at the back that are just under the screen location remove them, the last screw is just under the key board in a deep recess remove it.
Finally lift the top cover up slightly and push slightly towards the screens location as the COMS battery is attached to the mother board at front left. (Unplug it)
Work very carefully making sure you do not miss any screws, if it will not come off you have missed something. CHECK.
The cover should come off without any resistance.
The screws are different sizes apart from the base cover screws,( TIP) tape a wide strip of cello tape sticky side up on your work bench and group the screws on it marking with felt tip where the were located.
The wires on the battery are RED and BLACK
Leaver out the battery it’s held firmly by a sticky pad and change it (the wires come attached to the new battery. (Battery VARTA CR2032 3v 0405)
I am writing this from memory but I don’t think I have missed anything, remember if it will not move do not force it LOOK. (Something’s can be done not exactly in the order I have tried to explain it)
Replacement is the reverse of removal.
One site I was looking at wanted £45 for changing a keyboard, that’s a real rip off.
Hope this helps if in doubt take it to a shop.
Best of luck. teastheword find me on E Bay.

If we close the screen a little bit it goes bright white. Have to switch off and restart. Also, after doing a power point presentation the display is only opening about 80% of full screen with a black...

In LCD screens is a common problem that after setting a lower resolution than recommended you'll see a black stripe sometimes up and right, right click on any empty spot on your desktop and select properties then go to display options and move the resolution bar to a higher point and click apply also click yes in the warning display and accept.
