If you bought it less than two years ago and still have the receipt, you should be able to exchange the device for a new one. Alternatively, you can go to your local tablet service and ask them to fix it.
Try connecting your laptop to an external monitor.Connect it with a vga cable to your monitor and press Fn+ monitor key(I don't know what it is for acer) to switch displays.If there are no lines on the external monitor then the problem is due to the notebook lcd.If there are lines then it is due to a driver.Reinstalling the driver should fix that then.
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 socket.it 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
It is the problem of monitor pcb in vertical section.check vertical ic for dry soldring. Resolder the ic if problem still on then change ic or check components related ith it. check continuity of vertical deflection coil.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.
Good luck and kind regards.
