I have (suddenly) a single dotted black line about a quarter wasy down my screen on laptop. Can I get rid of it?


Hello,

First, you need to verify if the dot is cause by faulty graphics chip/card or LCD/LED. To do this use external monitor, if you cant see dot on your external monitor then you have faulty LCD/LED if you see dot like in your laptop the you have graphics chip/card problem.

I have ma Acer Aspire 5610z laptop when i switch on it does'nt display on the screen and am already check all connection of screen its correct so what can i do


Try connecting it to a second monitor to test the screen. If the computer acts like it is starting, but nothing happens, lights are on and screen is dark, the CPU may be broken.

My picture has been pixelated


Probably a bad display driver ( download the latest driver for video chip from the website)
Or might be the resolution is set too low ( right click on desktop / personalise / display settings and change) For XP, its changeable in the control panel / display box.

Test the laptop by connecting it to an external monitor, see if you get the same problem (if you do, see below re: graphics chip, if not, see below re: screen

After that, this could be faulty hardware, overheating graphics chips will cause the display to do this, best solution here, dismantle and clean the heatsink and fan, remove any dust build up.

If that still fails to work, the chip may be damaged beyond repair (new motherboard / graphics board depending on the laptop you have), Or, the screen itself may be failing (replace screen)

go into your bios and make sure that video memory shadowing is dissabled, Sounds like a faulty video card or damaged signal cable. I would lean more to the faulty card though, try installing a new one as I would say thats your issue if your getting artifacts on the screen before the OS has fully loaded.

OFC you could try new drivers both for your chipset of *********** board and the graphics card in the interim.

Fan for my acer 3690 spins, green light is on but no display show


Look to See If Your Hard Drive/Data Indicator Light is on and blinking (or solid)..
You need to try and hook up a desktop monitor to the laptops serial port.. Reboot with the External Screen Plugged Into The Laptop.. If You See Windows Booting From The External Monitor - Then You Have A Faulty Screen, or possibly a faulty Display Cable.. Most Likely The Screen Has Failed Though... Also, Hold The Screen Up To A Bright Light while its powered on, You Might have just lost the backlight and have a display still, It will be REAL faint but holding it up to a light and looking to see if you can see Windows Running..

If No Display on the External Monitor When Connected To The Laptop, Then You Have GPU/Graphics Failure, Due To Thermal Damage.. This Is A Motherboard Issue Because The Chips Are Integrated.. A ReBake/ReFlow Of The Chips Will Get Your Video Back, Or Replacing The Motherboard.....

One long and two short beeps indicate the problem with the display card on most of the laptops. Graphic card is integrated to the motherboard. Therefore the motherboard needs to be repaired.
