Question about Acer TravelMate 2300 Notebook

Laptop's LCD Panel showing a vertical burn-in patch (Picture Attached)

My Acer Travelmate Laptop suddenly started to display an odd vertical patch. It happened when I resumed my laptop from Stand-by mode. This patch is about 1.5 inches wide and runs from the top of the screen to the bottom. The color under the display is fine but the brightness is dull. I used DPT software (Dead Pixel Tester) to re-activate the pixels but it did not work. Although I did notice that the patch is not visible when the background image is green. (Seen below)

Please help me out with this problem!

Try updating your display driver.

Generally the computer should be updated as far as the drivers is concerned.

Check on line at the website of this laptop for updated drivers.

Check these before you do anything else.

My acer laptop travelmate 2400, stops at the acer dispaly screen?

When asking questions, please let us know what operating system you have, that goes a long way into us helping out....thanks you. You can try to boot into safe mode first, just to see if the laptop will boot into windows period. When the acer screen first appears, tap the F8 key repeatedly until you see a multiboot minu appear, if you di, that is a good first scroll to the "Safe Boot with Networking" and select it. If the laptop boots into safe mode, I suspect something must have been downloaded like a windows update that may not have installed correctly and corrupted the Startup. If you booted into safe mode, send me a message and I'll explain how to restore the system back before you had the problems. If it doesn't boot into safe mode I might be able to help with that too, but I need to know the operating system.

Vertical Lines in Monitor

This is usually a screen problem and cannot be fixed however to verify if this is from the screen or from the video card you can connect a normal monitor to the back output connector of your laptop and check the display on the external screen.

This will tell you if it is the video card on the board or the actual screen. In either case it would be a hardware issue.
