    I rang up CTX and they reckon that it is the panel that is gone and I should just write it off as a 5 yr old screen and buy a new one!

Take it to a repair store it will cost about $100 AU to repair as something is coming loose when it heats up this is not a home repair job.

My computer screen started to show horizontal lines a long time ago. It's not the computer, it's the screen because I had this screen on my computer and went to buy a new one. About 2 to 4 years later


Hr scello try to renew or install the screen card driver.

I think your pc is missing the driver.
When the driver is not correct or missing, you get a bad picture on your screen.

Visit the pc or graphic cards homepage insearch for the screen driver.

Good luck

This is a screen problem. It is not a graphics card problem.Eventually, you would have to change the screen of your laptop.

If you have money now, it would be necessary for you to purchase a new screen now before the problem gets worse.

This is the power supply inside the monitor itself. It is board that has three capacitors and they are blown out. It is a very inexpensive fix, if you are good with a soldering iron, if not let mw know and I will direct you to a company that can take care of this, for usually $30.00

Computer startup and running issues


Hello:

Try to remove the graphic card and then clean with soft clothe and then insert it again and test.

if same problem encounter, you need to replace the video card, since your pc is virus free.

considering the monitor, you need also to change the or test the monitor but its 10% that this a cause of the symptoms.

most probably the graphic card got faulty.

may this help,

Hi,

If you are referring to a conventional CRT monitor, then the fault you have described is indicative of a cold solder in the vertical section. Often, this would be any of the pins of the vertical IC. The vertical IC is the only IC that is heatsinked and sits at the back of the flyback transformer.

This of course would require a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

First, I would try connecting a different monitor if possible. If the problem persists, it would be a problem with your computers video card. If the 2nd monitor works fine, then your monitor is at fault and may need to be replaced.
