Try reinstalling all over, format your notebook and freshly install again your OS and drivers. It sometimes happen when we tweak some drivers it saved into the registry, it can be happen that settings is still there in the registry even you uninstall the driver, cause it's still the same driver although it has a different version. Sounds intriguing...? BUt its true, coz' you just only update the firmware but with the same driver.

tnx

Hi, I am having trouble with my computer screen running Windows 7. Half of the screen stops functioning or displaying.


Could be a potential driver issue. I would try uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers. Don't get it from HPs site, but rather the vendors site (ATI, nVidia).

My dell lcd screen some lines vertical problem


We might be having issues with the video card or the LCD
For us to isolate where the problem is coming from
1. Tried accessing the BIOS see if the vertical lines are present
2. If there are vertical lines on BIOS definitely the problem is LCD and we to replace it
3. So if we see vertical lines inside Windows we might have issues with Video Card itself or Video Card driver
4. Try uninstalling the video driver and install a fresh copy of video driver. Else we need to replace the video card
5. Usually laptops have integrated video. So we need to replace Motherboard

Vertical lines on monitor, normally pink


I have had that very same problem before. Unfortunatly it is all bad news. The card is going bad. You will have to replace the card. I wish there was something else I could tell you, but I know with 100% certanty that the card isnt any good. And the reason your other graphics card may not work is due to you not either uninstalling the 7500 drivers before you swapped, or some of the software affiliated with the 7500 were not completly removed during the uninstall process. Try this program http://www.guru3d.com/category/driversweeper/ to completly remove all dirver files for the 7500.

My Ibm Laptop r51 has a vertical lines on the screen


Our service have 3 pcs of IBM r51 note. All of them has the same problem with the display (vertical lines). When I changed the LCD panel itself, I found that the source of the problem is the panel, not the video card, not the wireing... You only need to drop out the old LCD panel and get a new one. You cannot repair the wrong panel...

Vertical lines in middle screen


The screen has a broken circuit in it somewhere, which is what will cause thes lines. You could take to a repair shop, and have them fix it, or call the manufacturer and tell them it is defective, and they will send you a new one for FREE!!!!
