Question about Compaq Evo D500 PC Desktop

2 Answers

BAD DISPLAY My PC display is experiencing problems like corrupt images, faulty animations, sometimes I can see vertical lines on the screen. On the worst case, my PC frequently stops responding and more often the screen display starts blinking or blacking out. I tried reinstalling the display driver a few times already. I already got the latest version of the driver. I put the display configuration & the hardware acceleration bar to the lowest setting & still the problems persists. Only on the windows safe mode and when I disabled the video card on the device manager properties the problems stop occuring. I think it could be the Nvidia GeForce2 MX400/400 graphics card that has problem. What should I do?

Try replacing your video card. That video card may not work with your motherboard.

What does a video card do?

The video card sends video data to the monitor. If the monitor does not display any images then the video card could be faulty.
It could also mean the monitor is faulty.
To check whether the video card or monitor is faulty, connect another monitor to your computer, if this monitor also does not displays any image then the video card is faulty.

Purple vertical line appeared on right side about 2'' in from left side. I tried everything to get rid of it W2234S LG

Once lines start appearing on the LCD its because the screen is starting to go bad on it, the pixels are starting to become defective. Only solution is to replace the screen or replace the monitor which would be cheaper.

Hi There, I've been experiencing the same setback as Kenneth. My lenovo 3000 flashed off and even if I boot it, the screen is still black.How ca I fix it?./ Ty

You may have a defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom: Screen flashes on and off or displays reddish pink hue. Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal. Picture flickering with dim display or appear black. Picture flickers on and off. All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replace the CCFL lamp.
To determine if the video card or the LCD is faulty, connect an external monitor to your laptop and power the monitor up first then the laptop, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight. Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight. It could be a faulty inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out, usually the CCFL lamp fails before the inverter.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

White 1 inch vertical band on display

just a thought.. Either your Graphics card or your Video Card has gone bad.. unfortunately DELL has a tendency of putting the graphics ON-BOARD and IF the onboard grqaphics card is bad, you'll need to get into the BIOS and turn the onboard graphics off then purchase an after market Graphics driver.. IMPORTANT: make certain that the graphic cars is compatable with the DELL PC OR purchase a less Proprietary system

Dell inspiron 1501 laptop screen has vertical lines in middle of screen, have taken apart to check connections but still there, any ideas ?

If the display is ok on an external monitor, then the problem is probably a bad tab board (tab welds) and the lcd will have to be replaced. If the external display is the same as the lcd then the inverter board or video card is bad.

Parts that can be involved are LCD display, display ribbon cable, or in worst case graphic chipset on motherboard.
If the problem goes on and off when pressing LCD display enclosure, then it can just be the display cable or the LCD itself.
The computer must be taken apart to find out what is causing the problem. First you try adjusting display ribbon cable, then, if moving cable problem goes away, but you cannot fix it, you replace the cable that costs few dollars. If this still does not work you replace the display.
Cheapest replacement can usually be found on Ebay.
