Question about Computers & Internet

2 Answers

Hi, I have a 6 month old laptop Acer emachines E625 and turned it on this morning to find 3 thin black horizontal lines have appeared (with about 2 or 3 smaller lines above each of the 3 lines) at the bottom about an inch above the bottom of the screen, then one about an inch above this one and then the third one about 2 inches above the top of the screen. They do not go across the whole screen, rather the longest one is the middle one which is about an inch long. Any idea what this is and what needs to be done to fix it. Thanks

Attach an external monitor to your PC. If the problem continues there, it's your graphics card.
If the problem disappears, you have stuck/dead pixels.
You could try a very gentle rubbing of the pixel(s).

Don't try to rub the pixels all it does is spread it

Started with one thin horizontal black line, then 3 shades over screen, now only static picture


Check and replace its back light CCFL lamps. If these are faulty, this kind of fault can occur. When replace it, replace all. None one or two. If you wish to get more details about the back light CCFL lamps and its working, check this link. Pull up older posts there.http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

I don't know to turn on my emachines E625 laptop webbcam


The laptops that have integrated cameras still need software to start them and run them. Go to the Emachine support and driver page and type your model into the search box and navigate to the drivers page. Look for the webcan driver and software for your model. Download and install.

Does the e625 have a built in webcam if so how do i turn it on


Yes the E625 was outfitted with I believe a 1.3 megapixel camera. You will have to go to the Acer support driver page and download the camera driver and then you will need the Acer webcam software or a third party application to use it.

Black screen with horizontal green lines


Hello yoyoxide.


from my experience can be something related with the video card. I recommend you the followig (Hardware diagnostics):

-Look for one of the discs that came with your computer, it should say (Drivers & utilities).
-Boot from the CD. If you don't know how to do it do the following:
1.Insert the Drivers&Utilities Disk.
2.Restart teh computer.
3. When you get the Dell logo, press F12
4.Select Boot from CD/CDRW-DVD (something like that).
-You will get a prompt to run the diagnosics.
-Just follow the wizard
-I recommend you to run diagnostics for everything.
-You will see if you have any problems with your hardware.

It seems that you have a pretty new laptop, so probably it's under warranty.

Thin horizontal line, Panasonic TH-50PX60U


unfortunately the panel is bad. I've worked on a number of these panels to know that symptom. I checked with panasonic and the warranty is one year parts and labor. you may be able to get panasonic to fix it if you still have warranty (purchased within 1 yr.) or check with your state's implied warranty. you might qualify for warranty repair under this implied warranty. call panasonic when you find out about the state's rules.
