    can't see anything on the screen as the bottom half is first red and the top half black, it then starts having lines going either down or across.

Lines are caused by quite a few issues. The first, easiest is to check the RAM memory stick to make sure it is seated and clean. Pull the stick, clean the contact pins with alchohol and take compressed air from an office cleaning product and use short bursts of air to clean the laptop, blow the air in the vents, grills, keyboard etc. If you have the manual, take the top of the unit apart to access the cable that attaches the monitor to the motherboard, there are a lot of times that the wires that feed through next to the hinges can be rubbed and bared by the constant movement, also the cable can be loosened in the socket by a bump or drop. The last thing on the list is going to be the video inverter and screen itself. Start simple and work your way toward in depth.

Change screen resolution to 1024*768Thena pply and ok.
If still same then enter in safe mode.
Then uninstall graphic driver fom device manager or add remove program.
Then start in normal mode then install graphic driver.
Then if still you get line then it is your screen hardware issue.

Connect an external monitor to your laptop. If the problem did not show up on the external monitor, then you need to replace the LCD screen.

If the laptop is still under the warranty, contact the manufacturer and have them repair it for free. But if you run out of warranty, ask them to estimate the cost of repair so that you would have an idea.

Have a great day!

I have a HTC 6800 that started acting funny about a week ago. At first the screen got lines across it when I would open the keyboard, then after a couple of days the srceen just froze when the keyboard was...


I had this same problem, there is a thin line of wires connecting the bottom half and top half of the sliders, after awhile it just plain wears out and will generally crack, without these wire anything on the front of your phone will no longer work. The screen is black but stil lights up a little bit and occasionally the buttons light up but its pretty much toast I'm sorry to say. I upgraded to a HTC Touch Pro 2 and am happier than ever!

Screen acts funny.


The pixels in the screen are starting to go bad which is why when you touch it in certain places the lines will go away and other times it will come back.

Get the screen replaced if possible.

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 screen 'flicker'


Try setting the video output option to NTSC (if it's on PAL). I know this sounds funny, but I have heard some rumblings about this option somehow creating a LCD flicker. If it doesn't work, I apologize in advance for wasting your time! My camera is on NTSC and I haven't seen any flicker on the file numbers on the LCD.
