Inverted Colors When Laptop Screen is Moved

After my laptop (Dell Studio 15) is on for awhile, if it's screen is moved even in the slightest, the colors become inverted/negative film type stuff. If i pull and bend the screen it eventually hits a spot where it goes back to normal, but holding it with one hand is obviously not a fix. I'm thinking it's a connection problem, but i don't know how to get the darn thing open to fix it properly or if that might just make it worse. I really don't want to have to buy a whole new laptop just cause the monitor is flickering and changing to this irritating inverted color scheme (Whites are black, blacks are outlined with white and everything gets a bit blurry in the process). There must be a (cheap) solution!

Hi
you are absolutely right.

there are basically two connections.

  1. at the motherboard end.
  2. at the display end.

any of the connector may be malfunctioning.

i ll suggest you not to open it yourself if you dont have prior experience in it.

while it wont take much to repair its not a costly affair.

if your system is under warranty it can be repaired for free.

if you find the solution helpful plz rate me carefully.
thnx

The colors on my laptop's screen are inverted, how can I fix this?


Both OS X and Windows have inversion options for their displays. Their meanings, on the other hand, differ with the operating system. An inverted display on Windows refers to the display actually being upside down, while an inverted display on the Mac refers to the colors being inverted. Either way, these options can hinder the use of your computer, for obvious reasons. Luckily, an inverted screen can be fixed quickly, on both Windows and OS X.

Right click on the Desktop and select "Properties." Click the "Settings" tab and then select "Advanced." Click the "Driver" tab and then "Graphics Properties." Press "Display Settings" and uncheck the "Enable rotation" option. Click "Apply" and then "OK." On Mac OS X Click the Apple logo in the upper left hand corner of the screen. Scroll down and select "System Preferences." Select "Universal Access" and click on the "Seeing" tab. Check the "Black on white" option and the display should return to normal. Close System Preferences to save the changes.

My dell studio laptop monitor's background colors are a mess. They are shifting colors, blotchy, and running. Please help! Thanks in advance


Don't know which model Studio you have but look to see if you have a 15 pin VGA plug on the laptop. You can connect an external monitor to determine if your computer LCD display is bad or the video circuit.
If the colors look normal when attached to external monitor, then you have a problem with the laptop's LCD display panel. If the colors are still distorted then your video circuit inside the laptop has a problem.

Screen began to flicker whenever I moved the screen back and forth and is now completely black. It's like something is lose inside Thanks!


sounds like it can be a loose LCD/video cable. Check the online manual of your system through support.dell.com for the LCD for reference on how you can remove and reconnect the cable that connects the LCD to the motherboard. Hope this helps and your feedback on how useful it is will be appreciated. Good luck
