Half a Screen

for the past 3 days i have had an issue with my Dell Inspiron 6000 lcd. The Bottom half of my screen seems to have gone.

Before it would just flicker and become static but a simple push/tap or movement of the lcd would bring it back to normal again but now the bottom third is just gone!.

Any ideas on what this could be and what i have to do to fix this problem?

Re: Half a Screen

Check first by connecting it to an external monitor. If you see that it is the same problem in the external monitor then I think there is something wrong with your video card. See if you can re seat the video card.

This issues also come from the cable that connects the LCD with the motherboard. Have you opened the Laptop anytime and moved the cable?

Check these first. It sounds something loose or a something related to video card.

Only have half screen on my Dell Inspiron 1501

What your describing is a failure of the LCD or possibly the inverter cable connection to the LCD. Most likely an LCD replacement will be required.

Screen problems??????????????

Heres a common issue in the field. Of course you must always make sure you have the latest DELL BIOS version.
There is a device that controls the screen called an invertor. This sits in ths screen housing usually toward the bottom. Sometimes people close the lid and forget about the inkpen they were using. The fix in my six years in the field has always been replaceing the LCD.

Half of screen is not viewable

Well the issue is usally with the Video driver.Try reinstalling it from the and that should resolve the issue.Also you can try connectring a external moniter and see if you get the proper display on that or not.Incase you do than issue is with the screen and incase its the same on that as well than its an issue with the video card.You can get either of the two replaced accordingly.
