Laptop Screen display problems

About a week ago, a blue line appeared on the screen (Inspiron 6000). Now, the display is foggy (for lack of a better word), colors faded. I read that the blue line is indicative of a connection problem with a ribbon cable, but I don't see said cable between the screen and base. Do I need an entirely new screen, or is this a connection problem I can fix? If it's the latter, detailed instructions please?

If you remove the LCD hinge cover, you will see where the cable is routed thru the hinge assy to the motherboard. You may have to remove the keyboard to reseat the cable connection to the motherboard. If that doesn't resolve, then the Cable or LCD itself is bad.

Blue screen on Dell Inspiron 6000 Laptop


OUCH... Might need a new harddrive or motherboard. Does it even let you go into the bios? Maybe you can do a full reinstall to save you the dough.

Screen wont turn on , i have a inspiron 6400 .. I rang dell & my extra 3yr warranty ran out just 6 weeks ago & * They WONT HELP*


when you say screen will not turn on it means we do not have display right? now, try this. turn off laptop, press and hold D key then press power button, check if the LCD will display colors if yes then it might be your video card causes the problem which needs motherboard replacement. if no colors appear then LCD needs replacement.

Blue screen with error message on startup


Most likely problem is a physical problem with the hard drive, but could be plenty of other things. Best bet is to back up your information (if possible) and do a fresh windows install, if you continue to get the message after a clean windows install, your hard drive is not stable, and has a problem.

Vertical lines in my laptop screen


Try connecting an external monitor to the Dell Inspiron 9300 and see if the vertical line is also present on the monitor. If the monitor display is fine, then your laptop’s LCD display panel is defective. If the monitor also displays the vertical line, then your problem is with either the video card or motherboard located inside your laptop.
Not sure if the Compaq Presario has an external monitor plug, but if it does the above procedure can be applied to that one as well.

Blue Vertical Line on my laptop screen


Does the line still appear if you plug it into an external monitor? If not sounds like your laptop screen has developed a fault, unlikely to be related to what you did with your camera just coincidence. The only way around this would be to replace the laptop screen. Not an easy job but not too difficult if you can find the same screen for sale on Ebay for example. Either that or replace the laptop and sell the old one on ebay for someone else to fix. Hope that helps Chris

Lines on screen


This is a fault with the TFT display controller, Unfortunately this kind of fault is not User Serviceable, If this item is within manufacturer's warranty send it back and they should fix it for you, (REMEMBER TO BACK UP YOUR DATA as they may choose just to replace the whole thing)
