I had the same problem on my MAC laptop. I had 2 VERTICAL lines going through my screen. At 1st I was told I needed a new screen, but then I took it to another tech and they ran some kind of device over the screen and they disappeared. I was told it was the way I was opening my laptop that did it. Best bet is to warp your screen when open and see if the lines disappear, until you can take it to a tech. This solved my problem for a couple of months. Also, when you pop open you screen, use 2 hands to open up, not one, it bends the screen and makes the lines appear.

    well..then you are in possession of a dying machine(I'm a Dell certified System engineer) so any other information needs to be assessed against that, amigo..

White thin line running across horizontal on my hp laptop


You got a bad LCD screen. no immediate resolution aside from getting the LCD replaced. if your system still has warranty call Dell for replacement.

Hope it helps!

Horizontal lines across whole screen


Bad inverter, or a dirty one. Remove the power cable and battery, then take apart the screen bezel, or casing. Remove the LCD by unhooking it. Disconnect the inverter. Clean it. Reconnect it. Fixed.

Horizontal lines across the screen


actually it is called a dead pixel. You can't fix it unless you will replace your LCD. Sorry for the bad news but it is for a fact. Hope I have answered your question

Horizontal lines on screen HPCQ509


Lines on the screen are usually caused by a hardware malfunction in either the lcd, lcd cable or the GPU.

Do the lines appear immediately after power up the computer? Or only when Windows starts?

Can you hook the laptop up to an external monitor to test?

How long have you owned this laptop?

Laptop Screen White horizontal lines


Try reseating the LCD cable to the video card. If no change, then you will most likely need a replacement LCD (Roughly $150 on EBay)

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.
