Lines on screen would be caused by a faulty screen. To solve this you must replace the screen.

Either your video cable needs to be re-seated,or your inverter is going bad.To fix either one you'll have to open your screens plastic housing and also remove the piecce of plastic where your power button is and lift out the keyboard.Re-seating the cable won't cost you anything,if you do it yourself.An Inverter will cost you roughly $60 plus shipping.

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 horizontal lines are present
2. If there are horizontal lines on BIOS definitely the problem is LCD and we to replace it
3. So if we see horizontal 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

Nothing but multi colered lines verticly on the screen


Try this:
Turn it off.
Disconnect power cord and any other device attached to it.
Take battery out.
Without anything attached. Hold down the power button for 10-15 seconds.
Connect the power cord only.
Hold down F2 (while it's off)
Turn it on while holding down F2.
Let go of F2 when something comes out of the screen.
If multi colored lines still appears.
You have either defective LCD(screen) or video card.

Horizontal Line running down my Laptop Computer Screen


You can try changing resolution to something else and then back.
You can see if your colors are 32-bit.
The fact that you "fixed" it is probably an coincidence. Once you start getting anomalies like that, it usually means a new screen.
