How do i get rid of a dark thin line going across my lap top ???

That cannot be repaired as the screen on your notebook has layers and between those layers gas is compressed within thin columns. In your case your screen got a minute leak in one of the columns and now that column is unable to produce image. Hence, It can't be repaired. You have to change the entire screen.

There is a vertical, thin line on my monitor

connect with a external monitor & see whether you get the same lines,if not then its LCD problem. Normally there are so many thin wire lines is built across the screen,sometimes you can see it clearly in the white pages,so try those Try also Updating BIOS & Video driver.

My toshiba laptop has a thick white line down the screen

The normal cause of lines across the LCD of a laptop is a damaged video cable. The unusual cause would be the video card itself.

To determine which item is at fault, you need only attach an external monitor to your laptop's video-out, and then swap your monitor view to 'both' or mirrored (usually just the function key (FN), plus one of the Fkeys...look for an off-blue picture of a monitor on the Fkeys).

If the lines across the screen also appear on an external monitor, then the video card is damaged.

If the lines only appear on the laptop's LCD, but not the external monitor, then just the laptop's internal video cable is damaged.

Hope this helps.

A white line across my screen

It could be one of three things, the first two could be an easy fix, the last one calls for a qualified repair person and could cost you

-first, The lcd cable assembly is loose, make sure it's seated properly. if problem still exists try to Disconnect the monitor cable from the computer and turn the monitor on leave it plugged in to the electric will display a diagnostic colorbar are the lines still there. if not your problem might be a cable or video card. if they are still there have a technician evaluate the monitor.

-second, The inverter card may need to be reseated

-last, The lcd has a thin line crack and needs to get replaced

It would be helpful to know about the inner workings of an lcd screen and how to access them. It shouldn't be to difficult if your computer savvy. I want to caution you about getting shocked. an lcd still has power stored in capacitors. you should be able to drain those capacitors by leaving the monitor on and unplugging it from the electrical plug wait 10 sec or until all lights go out on the monitor.

If none of this works then Your monitor is defective, and nothing you can do to fix it... Call where you got it from for a replacement

Acer 5100 Has no screen

It sounds like the mainboard or CPU died. Generally the hard drive is fairly easy to remove, look on the bottom or the side for a screw labeled "HDD", which should uncover the hard drive area.
