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

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 :)

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:

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!
