The Right Half of My Screen Is Grayed Out

The right half of my monitor is gray. It is not my video card. The right side suddenly went grey. I have had this happen to me before. I did nothing and it worked again. Also, it looks like two pins are missing on the connector. Thank you.

    When I boot up the left side on my screen is dark. It slowly brightens after a few minutes. Is this a sign of the monitor going bad.

It seems unlikely that two pins would be missing. They would more likely be bent down. If there's no bent pins, it looks like it could be a faulty monitor. Certainly, when TFT displays go, they tend to manifest the fault in a colourless or multicoloured bar consistently across a portion of the screen.

Samsung sa850t monitor right half of screen is solid blue


Hi,

I think your Display monitor cable damage, or may be your motherboard display cheap damage, or your display driver problem create.

First of all you check your display driver or reinstall driver. Sec think used external VGA card or check it. If not solved then your monitor display section damage. So contact good monitor technician.



Thanks..

My Acer Aspire One has half a good screen and half a black screen. Everything seems to be working as long as you only use the left half of the screen.


Power it up with an external monitor connected. If you get a full display on the external monitor, this confirms you have a problem with the built-in screen or the built-in lead connecting it to the motherboard, and not an item like the motherboard or built-in graphics chip (which are used regardless, whether image is sent to the internal screen or external monitor). The internal screen can be replaced, but before doing that, I'd suggest checking that the internal lead from the motherboard to the screen is intact and secure. Unfortunately, this entails some disassembly, which most home users would not be comfortable with.

Monitor looks like right half blue shade


Either your monitor or the video card inside the computer is going bad. To isolate the problem connect another monitor to the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the computer. If the Borrowed monitor displays ok that means your video card is ok, but your original monitor is bad. If the Borrowed monitor displays the same blue shade then your video card inside the computer is bad.

I have Toshiba SATELLITE P105-S6197 Laptop and suddenly a horizontal while/grey lines appeared as a strip and after windows login it appears as a black strip at right side


Sounds like a bad screen. The easiest way to verify that would be to attach this to an external monitor (at work, a friend's ... if you ain't got one) - if the external monitor apprears good then you've pretty much iso'd the problem to your laptop's screen. This model uses a 17" widescreen. Best place to buy 'em would be on eBay, and they'll usually run around $90 to $100 if you need one right away - half that amount if you've got time and patience :-)

No. The optical engine is OK. You need an adjustment in the light tunel. Call a tech to do it.
