Question about Dell UltraSharp 2001FP 20.1" LCD Monitor
Thanks for your answer, Nathan.
I tried to follow up with you, but I'm new to the forum and didn't know whether I should "Ask Me" or the Comment feature. So I did both!
I suspected it was a hardware problem. Sounds like it might be.
One extra ripple is that the vertical blue lines disappear sometimes after the screen saver disappears when I move my mouse after a period of inactivity.
Does that still suggest the display cable is bad? Does having the screen go dormant for a while gives the cable a break somehow? That sounds a little strange to me, but hey, I'm not a hardware guy.
I understand that it seems odd that sometimes they disappear.
I have a vertical line on one of my laptops right now that it takes about 3 seconds before it appears on the screen but once it's there. It's there.
I think it has to "warm up" before it comes back.
I used to do Technical support for a company that produced computers with 5inch wide screens, and everytime something with a line was mentioned, "Fix display cable" was the reason.
Because everytime you pushed the screen up to see the keyboard the line disappeared (because the display cable moved) But I digress.
All I'm certain of is that if you change the display cable this will be fixed.
