Question about Dell E171FPb 17" TFT LCD Flat Panel Monitor
I have a Gateway 7422 laptop. The laptop was dropped and is experiencing a vertical band from POST to Windows.I have opened up the laptop and checked the ribbon cable at both ends. I have connected to a external monitor and have experienced a normal screen. I tried replacing the entire screen with used one purchased on e-bay. When booting with new LCD I get only a completely white screen. When windows loads the screen is faint with multiple multicolor lines. I reinstalled the old screen and the old screen is clear with only the original band issue. Three questions for you...
What causes the white band?
Is the replacement screen faulty?
Can parts from either screen be canniblized to correct problem in either screen?
I am A+ certifed on desktop repair but cannot find any resources to troubleshoot or correct problem
Your new LCD is faulty. The band on your old one is the end of it I am affraid.
Laptop LCD's although built to take a beating (or so it seems) are extremely fragile. It only take a very small drop to end their lives.
