Question about Dell M781S Monitor

1 Answer

Brown horizontal lines sporadically appearing on monitor

I have brown horizontal lines which appear on my monitor sporadically. This problem is getting progressively worse. I have tried moving the phone and all other electrical appliances which are near the monitor, but nothing seems to reduce the problem. I have brown horizontal lines on my monitor all the time and sometimes it takes over my whole screen and I can't see anything.

I had the same problem. I fixed it completely today. The horizontal lines disappeared. IT IS DEFINETLY THE DEVICE DRIVER. I confirmed my monitor model tyope (dell M783s) and downloaded the specific driver for this monitor.

I had to do these exact steps or did not work.
1) with the problem screen, disabled the display adapter under the Hardware/Device Manager settings.
2) Restart the PC
3) Boot will come up with brown lines still but the screen will low resolution of 600x800.
4) Then I installed the correct device display monitor driver onto the pc. ( you may need to scan for new hardware, then choose the directory with the new hard drive.)

If you need step by step... just reply back.

Horizontal lines across tv


If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following
symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can
examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life
of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

Try getting anything that may have a magnetic field away from the LCD (speakers, phones, any electronic product), does the problem persist?

Lines appearing in the screen


This could either be Electromagnetic Radio Frequency Interference or cracks in the screen. The first possibility is not a problem, simply move the monitor. The Second possibility requires the screen to be replaced.

The lines appearing on the screen have nothing at all to do with the resolution. If the OSD display is correct (when the LCD is not connected to the PC), then the possible issue could be the RAM. Open the PC case and check if you have more than one RAM stick. Try using one RAM at a time and swaping RAM slots to see if the display is shown correctly. Make sure that the PC is turned off and power is disconnected before you remove/ install RAM. Most of the times lines appearing on the screen are due to faulty RAM. I suggest that you may also connect the LCD with some other PC to check if the issue is with the LCD or not.

Let me know if any further clarification/ assistance is required.
Hope it helps! Good Luck!

I have a HP Pavilion dv7-1270us laptop. My problem is that there is a sporadic, flickering horizontal white 'line' that appears and disappears on the monitor. The 'line' skips from bottom to top on the...


Here is a way to find out if it is the driver or not. Try plugging a standalone monitor into the VGA or DVI drive of the laptop and see if you are getting the same problem. The reason I suggested this is that you could have another display problem on your hands that has to do with the laptop display itself. That may need to be replaced for free (if the laptop is still under warranty) or just get another one on your own. It is pretty simple to remove but I suggest checking the HP site for the technical information on opening the laptop (if it is not under warranty).

What is wrong with your monitor is that the Horizontal section is going faulty, the lines you are seeing are the Horizontal Retrace lines, usually invisable in a working unit. It is often a faulty capacitor(s) OR a Diode breaking down.. in the area of the Flyback Transformer. Probably time for a new one unless ya can fix it yaself.

Brown horizontal lines sporadically appearing on monitor


I have exactly the same problem with the identical monitor, but I have not found any solution. It seems to be the monitor causing it because I can't see the lines, when I make a screen dump.
