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.

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,

It displays colorful lines on the monitor...cant see nothing


Test your laptop with an external monitor and find out if the external video goes bad too. If both, internal and external images go bad, you have a problem with the video card.
If external works fine and only internal goes bad, most likely it’s either bad video cable or LCD screen failure.

no display after switching on the laptop?
1. try to connect to an external monitor using an analog video cable. monitor is on. turn on laptop after a minute press and hold on Fn key then press F8 at the same time to toggle the display between LCD to Monitor, if nothing happened do step 2.
2. turn of laptop. remove video cable. press and hold D key then press power button at the same time. this will test the LCD. check if there are colors display. if yes do step 3, if no replace lcd and lcd cable.
3. make sure laptop is off. press and hold on the Fn key then press power button at the same time to run a quick test. Even no display or anything wait for about 5 minutes check if you will hear series of beeps. If yes.replace video card if it is expansion, replace motherboard if it is integrated.
