I come accross this problem quite a lot, very seldome is it the Bios. Almost always it is the Screen that has been twisted and the ribbon cable that is sandwiched in the LCD Panel has fategued, 1 in about 100 had been a Bios problem Solution: It won't harm to update your Bios but be careful as you can damage your computer to the point of no return if you fail for some reason. The other solution is to replace the Screen or Use an external Monitor. More details for diagnostics at my website: www.powerjackrepair.com

If they appear when windows or your operating system hasnt started yet then it likely a bios problem or a physical problem with your screen.

try an external monitor to see if u get the lines

upgrade you bios

if no improvement then let a technician look at your screen

or replace it all together. if u cant afford it, use an external monitor

Dell Latitude D505 half of screen is black with colored vertical lines.


Sounds like you have a section of dead pixels. This can happen if the laptop has been dropped a lot or stepped on or some type of impact on the laptop. This is a hardware issue. You will need to have the screen replaced. In my opinion, by the age of the laptop, its better off getting a new one.

A vertical white line appears on my screen


What is happening to your laptop is the power line connecting a row of pixels is failing so only partial colors are showing up causing the vertical white line. Usually screen replacement is the only answer to fix it.

To isolate the issue, i strongly recommend to connect the notebook to the external monitor by VGA port which had BLUE colored on the notebook. So that if it is normal then you need to confirm the issue is with the LCD display.
