Possible loose connection from the inverter to the screen. you can try pushing the edges of the screen cover towords the center working your way around the problem area especially. But it could be just a bad inverter. Can you hook it up to external monitor? That will tell you if problem is before or after inverter.

Bottom half of laptop screen is colors with white lines vertically. Was able to control by changing position of screen, no lnger able to do that. Thin k Pad Lenovo T60


Hi,

Try to hook up an external monitor just to check that it is not a problem with the video card of the laptop. Most likely the LCD cable is loose or the LCD inverter needs to be replaced.

Hope this helps.

Thin vertical yellow line and a white vertical line appeared on ibm thinkcenter r52


What is happening to your laptop is the power line connecting a row of pixels is failing so only partial colors are showing up causing the vertical lines. Usually screen replacement is the only answer to fix it. You can usually find replacement LCD on Ebay.

Laptop screen displays vertical lines of various colours


Have you tried to connect your laptop to external monitor?
If you get normal picture on external monitor, then you need to replace LCD screen, but if you get same picture on external screen, then unfortunately you will need new motherboard, because graphics card is integrated to motherboard.
