Re: Lines on my screen

I had the same issue awhile back....the only thing you can do is send it in....its a hardware issue inside the pc. nothing can fix it without taking your pc apart.

My HP Pavilion zx8000 screen has dots and dashes lines up & down flicking and pictures I can't recognize.

Hello There,

Lines/dots issues on screen is a bit serious as it can be a full on hardware problem in the long run. What's possibly causing it are conflicts in video driver or LCD/monitor screen problem. Here are the things that you can try :
  • Shut down the computer
  • Unplug all USB devices (except mouse and kybd)
  • Restart the computer and start tapping on "DEL" key repeatedly until you see the BIOS screen
  • Observe for at least 30minutes to 1 hour and see if those lines are present.
If there are no issues while your in BIOS, then operating system re-installation can get this problem fixed. Otherwise, I strongly suggest that you take this notebook to HP's authorized repair center to replace the LCD.

Move the screen around while on, do the lines disappear when you hold it in certain positions? If so, your LCD needs to be replace. If the lines don't disappear when bending the screen, it could be a broken motherboard as well. Youcan try to open the laptop and check the dc connection. There is a Laptop Repair Guide that shows you how to take apart a laptop, the sony may be made in a similar way. Sony Repair NYC

Thin blue line


This is a phisical hardware problem with the screen.
If the system is under warranty better take back so your vendor replace the screen.

I think is the only solution.

This is a progressive problem, day a day you will be seen more and more lines until the screen become death.

Display has lines that run through it

they can be horizontal. I think your graphics card on your motherboard is bad. you should consider sending it to acer so they can replace it with a new one.

Problem with LCD

Indeed offered solution is most likely correct. However I can suggest you to ensure if dots/lines appear even before windows screen comes. If yes thats the conclusion that your LCD Module has dead pixels or internal connectors has connectivity issue. Consult a local Hands on technician. LCD module might be costly you can always use an external monitor with your laptop.
Good luck. Happy new year.
