Re: Purple band

You can try reseating the display cable at both the LCD and systemboard ends. If that doesn't help, you probably will need to replace the LCD panel. Before you do that, try hooking up an external monitor. I'd suspect that you won't get the purple band on it. But, if you do, you may have a video card issue.
Let me know if I can be of more help.

Sounds like you either cracked the screen (does it get more colorful with a little pressure?) or that the video cabling has come loose at either the motherboard or the lcd. Find a tear-down video for your laptop model and check these connections. Reseating them should be fairly straightforward.

Samsung laptop purple light

When the CPU overheats then it will shut down (i.e. thermaloverload) and won't boot up again until it has cooled down. If this is theproblem is not fixed then the CPU will eventually fail.
A faulty fan causes the problem or the fan and heat sink assembly are cloggedwith dust.
Check the CPU fan to see if it spins freely, if not replace the fan.
If the fan and heat sink is clogged with dust the remove the dust and make surethe vents are clear and dust free. Use a small brush and can of compressed airto do this.

I have an asus notebook. I can't get the pages to fit on the desktop on any programme, or when I'm online. I've hunted through the settings and display option but haven't been able to fix it. It was fine...


Can you have a look down on the bottom right hand side of your screen
Does it have a blue plus mark in a round circle like a magnifying glass ?
what does it say
if it says more than 100% then pages will not fit on the screen
you need to click on the drop down arrow and change it to a lower count 100% or less

hope you can find the magnifying glass and hope this is what caused it

if this doesn't fix the problem please come back to us again

How do i fix my web camera to not turn me purple when i web chat?

You'll need to get an desk lamp of some sort to light your face.
What is happening is that your face is being lit by your computer monitor, which will give it a purple cast to it.
Find a nice, bright soft-white desk lamp to place to the side of your computer screen and that should be enough to prevent the purple face.

The function (purple) key symbols type when I am trying to type non-function (white) symbols. When I press the function (purple) key, the white symbol types.

There's a "Fn" key on the bottom left hand of the key board.

This key switches between the purple/white key funtions.

This gives the opportunity to have loads of functions with just a few keys.

Black is red and blue is purple

We can start with simple first....sounds like your graphics processor chip is fine, if it is sending the correct information to the external then it is sending the same to the LCD. Therefore we need to look at the attaching cable both on the motherboard and on the back of the LCD. This cable is located on the left side of the motherboard and runs up the left hinge and behind the LCD where it fits snugly into a wide flat slot. When distortions occur and color problems as well as other problems, a reseating of the cable on both ends can many times clear this up. The other side of the LCD should be fine, that is where the inverter lies and it has nothing to do with data trasfer. Below is a link to the service manual that will guide you in the disassembly of the unit down to where you need to go to check this. If the cables are fine and snug then most likely you are losing the screen and it will have to be replaced.

It lloks like the video cable or inverter may be bad. Worst case scenario is the LCD may be bad. Try replacing cable or inverter first.
