Connect to an external monitor, if it works fine then it is the monitor, if not its the video card.

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.

Screen has colored verticle lines


Your graphics unit is done, or the screen itself is done. It depends really :o Since this is the internet and it's not in my hands I can't really fully say.

I'd guess it's the screen before the GPU though, try to plug it into a normal monitor with the VGA or HDMI output line that's comes on most laptops, if lines still happen on the other display it's the GPU, if lines don't happen you'll need to get the LED or LCD monitor replaced which is pretty easy to do and it should cost about 50-60 bucks depending on where you buy the monitor (eBay is best) If you have someone else do it, you won't have to buy the parts but it will cost you around 200 dollars.

I hope this helps :)

On an Acer Aspire 1640z I get blue screen and lines. lines move with track pad movement. nothing readable. replaced lcd cable and inverter. thinking either lcd or motherboard


Hook it up to an external monitor. If the display is fine on the external then your gpu on the motherboard is fine and the LCD is bad. No external display means bad board. Both cost roughly the same but an LCD is much easier to replace than the board.

Scrolling colored lines on the monitor, overlaying the screen.


You either have extremely screwy drivers, a bad cable or your monitor/panel is shot. Replace any of the above to resolve the issue.

Cracked screen can it be fixed


No..the Glass Display Panel ... If cracked... Cannot be repaired.. it is not just a piece of glass, it is a layered panel with pixel grid panels along the top and sides that show color to the grid on the screen panel and go all throughout the display ..

If the Crack ocured behind the display panel on the plexiglass protective panel, that can be replaced... but No Not The Front LCD Display Panel.

Screen showing funny lines and colors.


That would be the screen itself that needs replaced, if you needed the inverter board you screen would be dark and hardly visable

Lcd disolay has liens through it and colors are off.


If tapping the screen (on sides or back of case - not the screen itself !) affects the display it is usually loose connections either at the motherboard or behind the display where ribbon cable connects. relatively easy repair for someone who can take apart a laptop but you need the repair manual because there is a sequence that needs to be followed.

Black screen on Acer 5100, but will work with external monitor


It sounds like the control board or cable for the LCD may be damaged. If you're still under warranty, you'll need to send it back to Acer to be repaired.

Acer 3000 Screen not working properly


This is most likely either a.) the connection to the LCD is falling out or b.) the screen itself is going bad.

If you feel comfortable to tackle this job you can buy the LCD to replace:

New LCD Screen:

Removal Instructions:
http://www.lcds4less.com/PDF/Laptop-LCD-Removal-Instructions.pdf

Be sure to double check with the company to make sure that this screen will work with your notebook.

If you computer is still under warranty or maybe you purchased an extended warranty the manufacturer might cover replacement of the LCD.

hope that helps!
