Pale Vertical lines on my monitor

My laptop was working perfectly until I opened it today. The moniter (screen) comes on (lights up) but instead of getting the usual page where I can sign in, all I get are pale blueish vertical lines. Also, I no longer hear the faint sound of the computer being on. HELP!!!!!!!

    Thanks for the quick response. I hope I am making progress - just tried to turn it on again and this time I am getting lots of sound - sound like it is running. Then I noticed the keyboard is working as I am able to turn on and off the wireless function and the caps lock key lights up. Looks like to mouse is moving the pale blue vertical lines I am now seeing against a bright white monitor. I inserted a CD in drive D and it sounds like it is running. Just no picture! I am really hoping it is just a problem with the inverter or ribbon.

    I will try it on an External Monitor tomorrow as I only have another lap top here with me and don't know enough about computers to do it on my own. Will advise. Thanks

    Try it on External monitor and see if the Videos still flakey.. (Trust me).. If not let me know but weve seen a ton of these and its generally video chipset related.. We are directly related although this does "NOT" Pertain to your model in any way..

I use my lg L194ws moniter screen only with tv-tuner set,and now a days,i found a problem with hthe sreen.there is a blue coloured vertical line came in middle of screen.plz tell me what to do to avoid...

Sad to say, there's nothing you can do. Solid lines like you describe are due to hardware failure in the LCD display panel itself. Instead of controlling a single pixel as designed, a whole column is now stuck on. There is no way to get into the LCD panel to repair that circuitry; the only option is to replace the panel. Replacing the whole monitor is usually simpler (and often less expensive) than locating and installing the panel alone. Until you're ready to buy a new monitor, just keep using this one.

There are multi colored vertical lines on LCD Screen going to a total black screen. Laptop connected is to an external monitor = normal display on the external monitor I removed and reinsert the video...

Unfortunately, you're not going to be able to get a new cable as Toshiba will not sell OEM replacement parts to anyone but an authorized repair center.

This may just as likely be a problem with the sockets/plugs as with the cable itself, as they are rather fragile. It may be worth spending a few bucks for a used cable just to see if it will solve your problem. Also be sure that the thin plastic shim found on the top of most of these cable ends is still there, as they can come off rather easily, and the lack of it will cause a poor connection.

Your other alternatives are (1) Toshiba repair center, or (2) using the external monitor.

Hope that's helpful.

My Dell 1521 was working perfectly until this morning. When I tried starting it later today, the LCD screen no longer worked. The top third of the screen is fine. The bottom two thirds are covered by lines...

Your LCD has either gone bad or the ribbon needs to be reseated.

Carefully pry the plastic cover that runs parallel with your LCD. You will see the ribbon to the monitor. Press the connector down and make sure it didn't come loose.

Restart Windows.

If that doesn't work, then you will need to replace the LCD screen. You will not have to replace your lid...just the LCD. That should save you some money.

Hope this helps.

Vertical lines on lcd how can i fix it works perfect with ext monitor and i did bios update and it help some?

Restart the Computer and access the BIOS and check if the vertical lines are visible. If the vertical lines are visible in the BIOS then the issue is with the LCD screen itself and may require service. This is confirmed when an external monitor works fine. If the issue is related to the video card of the Computer then the lines should also appear on the external monitor which is not the case.

Vertical lines in my laptop screen

This could be a failure in several areas along the path from the video card to the monitor.

Being that there is not an issue across the entire monitor the video card should be considered a last resort check.

Usually this is caused by a loose connection between the LCD driver and the LCD panel itself. Sometimes light pressure applied near the affected line will clear it up. If that does then it is a connection between the LCD panel and the connector to the LCD driver at the panel's edge.

Not much can be done unless you have it repaired by a professional or you can take it apart yourself and apply a pad of some type inside the monitor's edge to apply the needed pressure once assembled.

My Acer LCD AL1711 went off after seconds of turning on.

This monitor has "back lights" that are essentially like flourescent lights. These are high voltage lights and can easily fail. since you are getting some light initially, I would suspect a defective part that heats up a bit right away and then fails. I would try to replace the entire backlight board. This is the small board on the side (usually).
