CAble connecting the monitor or the LCD screen itself is damaged . tighten the port behind the PC , make sure it is well conected , wile the dis play is on try softly twisting the cable a bit if the blue line flickers then cable is faulty . otherwise LCD screen needs to be checked

My computer has blue lines all over the screen. If I open the computer normally, it doesn't continue from the windows charging bar, it ends up in a black screen doing nothing. If I start with Safe...

Run the software coming with the computer or download from your computer supplier, and fix it.
Try to use the Menu from monitor, and make factory default.

Blue vertical lines

Hi, I am sorry you are having issues with your graphics card.

Yes the oven trick does work but it is only temporary and you will have to do that process over and over until the card just all out quits responding. Once a GPU begins to display multicolored or blue lines across the monitor its time to put it out to pasture so to speak.

The left side of my laptop screen wet all white with red green yellow blue lines running veretical lines running through it. looks like someone spilled paint on it


Vertical lines are usually caused by 2 things, either your graphics card is going bad or your screen is going bad. How you check if it is your graphics card is by plugging it into an external monitor (if you have one).
If the lines still appear on the external monitor then you know its the graphics card going bad, which isn't probably worth fixing these days if you take into account how must laptop pricing has dropped.

I hope this helps.

Best of luck!!

I have vertical lines on screen I have changed the whole screen assembley but lines are still thers , exactly in same place

Hey There,

The reason this happens is because the graphics card is either loose burned out or jsut needs to be cleaned... to clean it use a pencil rubber in the gold tips that connect it, blow on the card to remove any dust build ups and reconnect the graphics card when done (make sure its clipped in properly).... different brands of computers will do different things such as the different coloured lines and screens flashing red. My dell latitude 630 had green and blue verticle lines. Just follow what i said and it should be fine

Hope this will help you in Resolving the issue with the vertical Lines on the screen.

A thick blue horizontal line appeared in my LCD screen and won't go away. I can still take pictures and they print out fine, but how can I get rid of the blue line?

This is probably a problem with your LCD monitor or the connections to it. Does the blue line show in all situations such as record, playback, and menu mode?
Test your monitor by plugging into your camera the TV cord that came with your camera. Connect to a TV and use it as a monitor when your camera is on. be sure to switch to the TV to channel three or video to get a picture. Check the different screen modes: record, play, and menu. If the blue line does not appear on the TV then there is damage to your monitor or its connections. My guess is you won't see the blue line on your TV since you get good prints. If you are on warranty, get it fixed. Otherwise, you have a choice between paying for a repair or living with it. Good luck.

return to the retailer and exchange it. if it's a green line from top to bottom, the retailer should be able to exchange it. some retailers have a minimum of "stuck pixels" before they will take it back (ie. 10 pixels), but if it's a line, that should be more than the min.

How to fix horisontal lines on display ( see the picture)? They stronger when system is restarted and then fading but never disappearing. They always stay the same.

horizontal lines can be caused by either a faulty grapchics card or a faulty monitor. try adjusting the screen refresh rate. if you are using a windows xp system goto

start>control panel>display>settings>advanced>monitor

then adjust the screen refresh rate and see if the horizontal lines disappear. if not, then you probably have a faulty graphics card or monitor.
