If tapping the screen (on sides or back of case - not the screen itself !) affects the display it is usually loose connections either at the motherboard or behind the display where ribbon cable connects. relatively easy repair for someone who can take apart a laptop but you need the repair manual because there is a sequence that needs to be followed.

Why are flashing color lines on lcd display


MOST PROBABLY A PROBLEM WITH YOUR MONITOR.
But to discard the other possibility, that problem might be the video card, connect an external monitor through VGA cable

My dell studio laptop monitor's background colors are a mess. They are shifting colors, blotchy, and running. Please help! Thanks in advance


Don't know which model Studio you have but look to see if you have a 15 pin VGA plug on the laptop. You can connect an external monitor to determine if your computer LCD display is bad or the video circuit.
If the colors look normal when attached to external monitor, then you have a problem with the laptop's LCD display panel. If the colors are still distorted then your video circuit inside the laptop has a problem.

Hello
Plug in an external monitor. If the external displays fine, then the video card is also fine. Gently pinch the edges of the LCD screen where the lines terminate. If the lines change or go away, then it needs a new LCD screen.

Good Luck,

Monitor going berserk


This could be due to corrupt display drivers on the notebook or the video card is going to die. Try updating the graphics drivers on the notebook and check for the issue.

If the issue still persists, then to isolate the exact cause of the issue, I recommend you to connect an external monitor to the notebook and check for the issue on it. If external monitor works fine, then the issue with LCD display screen of the notebook. In case, if the issue persists on external monitor then it states that the video card of the notebook is going to die.

To connect an external monitor to the PC, follow the steps listed below:

1. Turn off the notebook.
2. Connect the monitor cable from the external monitor to the monitor port on the rear/side of the computer.
3. Connect the monitor to a power source and turn it on.
4. Press the Power button to turn on the computer.

At this time, please follow the instructions mentioned below for switching the display to the external monitor:

The notebook's video card supports three modes. Built-in screen only; external video only; and both on simultaneously (mirrored). If you're not seeing the image on the desired device(s), the notebook's video card is probably in another mode. Press FN + F4 to cycle through the display options: Notebook display, External monitor, both.

If you press FN + F4 once, the external monitor will display & there will be no Notebook LCD display.
If you press FN + F4 twice, the external monitor will display & there will be some shading on the Notebook LCD.
If you press FN + F4 thrice, both Notebook LCD & external monitor will display.

If the issue persists on the external monitor, then this could be due to defective video card on the notebook. However, if the display on the external monitor is fine, then the issue is with the LCD display panel of the notebook. In either cases, the notebook requires a detailed onsite diagnosis by a service technician.

I have a fine horizontal line running 2/3rd's of my hp mini note book.should i be concerned?


This could be a hardware issue with the LCD screen of display card. To confirm the same, connect an external monitor and check if the same line appears on external monitor. If external mitor works fine, then its a LCD defect. If you have same issue on both LCD and External monitor, then it could be due to display card. In either cases you may need to take to service center.
