Re: Vertical lines on monitor

Your video card may be failing. do you have a add on graphics card. If you do try your onboard card. Have you changed the Hertz setting in your display settings and also try the DPI options and change it to a higher setting. See if that works

Well !! my computer is 2 yrs old and there is a shade difference in the screen,a vertical line has appeared and the upper part of the screen has faded,the mouse is also not working on the upper part,it is...

Unfortunately, the screen has failed. If it is still under warranty, contact the MFG for a replacement. If it is out of warranty, you may be able to buy a replacement screen from the MFG. An alternative is to connect an external monitor. Buying a new LCD monitor will probably cost less than a replacement screen. But you will give up the mobility of the laptop.
Good luck!

I have home pc getting vertical line in my acer monitor help me how to remove line

Is this a lcd monitor? Vertical lines in LCD panels are generally caused by a bad panel. If this is your problem the lcd panel can be replaced but may not be cost effective.

Please rate this solution if it has helped you.

Getting vertical line in acer monitor

Apparently it is a display hardware problem. Try another monitor with the same cable and video card. Then you should try another cable. Then another video card. If vertical line doesn't show in either case, then you should replace the appropriate device\cable. If it shows anyway, then bring your monitor to service center for diagnosis.

Color is fading bright n dark

Could be your monitor is going bad, plug a montior into your computer, if the new monitor does not fade, then you found that the old monitor needs replacment, however if both monitors are fading, try to
Restart ur computer and get into the BIOS. check if the line is there also. then plug in an external monitor into the VA connector of the system and check if the line appears there also.

If in both the cases, there is a line, then the problem is with the video card. if the line is only seen on the notebook display, then the problem is with the built-in screen, which means you will need to get the screen replaced, or get a new monitor. Check ur warranties.

If the video card is found to be the problem, then depepnding on the video card (on-board or extendible) it will need to be replaced. Again, check ur warranties for any free service.

Computer only displays vertical lines and pink background.

Most likely an issue with the Video Card or Video driver.
* Boot to safe mode by tapping F8 while starting up the computer. Selected safe mode with the keyboard and hit enter. Login to your user account. You should see the words “Safe Mode” on all four corners,
* Open device manager – Right click “My Computer” – Select “Manage” – Selected device manager from the left. Under display driver, you should see your vide card listed. Right click on it and select “Disable”.
Now restart your computer and if this resolves the issue, then the vide card may be at fault. You could also try updating the video driver.
Do let me know if you get this far.

Blank screen or vertical colored lines on monitor

if so try a graphics card in there see if that helps it

also if you could borrow a monitor and see if that helps

its either one or the other and is a process of elimination
