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..

Canon MP980 prints horizontal pink lines across


try to change the color ink. horizontal banding (the pink or other color lines appearing means horizontal banding) when there is a problem on one of the heating element of the printer head. since almost all canon printers have head built in the inks, replacing the faulty ink will solve the problem. if not then the controller of printhead on the carriage and mainboard needs to be checked.

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.

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.

Horizontal lines are appearing and moving acrosss the screen of my View Sonic E50C Monitor...


What is wrong with your monitor is that the Horizontal section is going faulty, the lines you are seeing are the Horizontal Retrace lines, usually invisable in a working unit. It is often a faulty capacitor(s) OR a Diode breaking down.. in the area of the Flyback Transformer. Probably time for a new one unless ya can fix it yaself.
