Laptops have issues all the time with the monitor and the reason is simple. there is a ribbon that connects your monitor to the motherboard and over time from opening and closing the connection gets weak.

From the picture it seems almost like a software glitch. Does this happen on just the desktop or does it happen on everything you open?

If its just on the background I would reinstall your video card drivers.

If its on everything I would still try to reinstall your video card drivers, if not good take it to get service.

You have a blue VGA port on the back of your laptop. hook the free monitor up to it and switch your display to that screen. If the problem is following the monitor then you know its either driver issue or your onboard video card is messed up.

I am getting lines on my laptop screen. the colored lines appeared all of a sudden and hiding half of my screen. pls help

Hi azmiug,

I see that you are getting colore lines on the screen hiding half of your LCD screen, Please see steps below.

*Turn your Laptop OFF.
*Once Turned OFF, Turned the Laptop back ON then keep on tapping F2 on your keyboard.
*By Tapping F2 on the keyboard this will bring you to the BIOS screen, once in the BIOS of your Laptop and the Colored Lines are still present then the problem is the LCD of your laptop and may reuire replacing.
*If the Colored Lines are not present then the Problem would possibly be the connection of the Video Card to the LCD or the Video Card itself.
*Reformatting Windows can be one of the steps to be done to find out if the issue Colored Lines will be fixed or not.

I hope that this will help you with your concern.

Have a nice day,

Dell inspiron e1505 laptop has a thin light green line on far left of screen and a thin pink line approx an inch to the right of it. Both lines run from top to the bottom of the screen. I'm assisting in...

If you were to plug it into an external display, that will tell you whether it is a VGA uProcessor fault or a screen fault. If it is a screen fault, checkout ebay for a replacement screen.
Hope that helps.

This is a common issue. The problem is a faulty graphic chip. You will need to take it to a shop or use the DIY guide from to reflow the graphic chip.

My laptop screen is black

Try reseating the memory, if that doesn't work then take the battery out and only hook up the ac adaptor then turn on the laptop to see if you get video.

I dropped my laptop and now the screen is messed up.

Ack. Sounds like you might need to replace your screen (sounds pricey but is cheaper than a new laptop). You can find second hand/refurbished screens or another Aspire with a working screen being sold for parts on Ebay or here

On a side note, if you a have a PC monitor lying around, you can access your files by hooking it up to your laptop via the dvi slot. Granted, it seems a bit ghetto but its a quick fix until you get something more permanent.

I recently broke my iPhone screen and completely shattered a dell laptop a few years ago. You know all those people who are adamant about you buying proper carrying/protective cases? Screw 'em.

Screen only showing vertical lines after being dropped

The damage could be either in the LCD screen or the connection cable. Open the screen assembly and check the connection cable first.
In case it doesn't work you can find replacement LCD screens here.
