There could be 3 possible reasons for a vertical lines

1. Driver for graphics card needs to be updated
2. Grpahics card faulty
3. LCD problem

try connecting an external monitor and see if the display is also vertical on the monitor, if yes the problem is graphics card, if no, the problem is the LCD. Hope this helps

Samsung tv has vertical lines and washed out appearance why


OMG..why so many bad answers on here all a sudden ...Chances are you have a bad Tcon board or its possible it could be the main as well however tcons fail way more than main boards with your issue, vertical lines means bad tcon, horizontal can mean a bad display...I can count on one hand the times Ive had a bad display with vertical lines and Ive serviced thousands of HD TV's over the years...but what I want you to do 1st is remove the LVDS cable that goes from the main board to the tcon board, clean the contacts and replace it...then do the same to the two flat panel ribbons that go from the tcon board to the panel, its not real common but on occasion they will loose connection and give vertical lines, don't want you to buy a board if cleaning the cable connections will help...just use a little rubbing alcohol to clean them...Good luck, if you need more help feel free to message me back.

The monitor just goes out. It displays vertical


vertical lines can mean either a connector problem on the lcd itself or on the motherboard connector or a problem with video ram or the chip. Unfortunately none of those are cheap or easy to fix. You can try an external monitor and if that displays normally then the problem is connector or lcd. You can sometimes find a replacement display at fair prices so if that is it then it might be worth fixing. If it is the motherboard then the repair can cost as much as a new replacement laptop.

HP Pavilion 7000 vertical lines on the screen. Unable to install the NVidia Driver


What is the exact model for your laptop? If you go to HP website using the laptop, you can have them "autodetect" what drivers you are actually supposed to be using. Find the display driver associated with your specific laptop and use that. Look for the link to "Software and Downloads" and click on it. There will be a black button in the middle for "Autodetect". Download that latest driver.
