Jumpy screen after bump

My laptop got bumped and now the screen is jumpy when it starts up. I suspect that it is something loose in the display. It's funny because the screen stops being jumpy after the laptop has been on for a while, but the initial jumpiness is getting worse with each restart. Should I take the lcd apart to see if something is loose? Are there any good tutorials out there about how to do this?

I would agree with you that something is loose. You better stop using the notebook and fix the problem first, because loose connections will get your laptop short circuit.

  1. Check connection from the lcd to the ribbon wire, make sure its frimly attached and sealed with tape.
  2. Check the other end of the connection on *********** board. It's usually seated firmly on a socket.

It truly sounds like a loose or faulty/corroded ground wire. Almost 99% of the electrical problems I have experienced with Volvo's are loose wire related. There are a number of ground wires underneath the hood grounding the engine. However my first suspect would be the connections on the alternator and battery.

Hope this helps.

Well there might be something internally wrong with the console like the graphics card

Thinkpad T61 Display Problem


LCDs are not repairable, it is something you need to replace when defective. They also happen to be very very expensive to replace.

Is the screen cracked at all? cause sometimes when laptops get bumped, it is actually just the lcd cable inside the laptop that came a little loose and isn't making a full connection. If the screen isn't cracked or anything I would at least look into a possible loose cable first If you are not comfortable taking the laptop apart, I would bring it to a computer shop and have them take a look at it as some laptops can be complicated to open up. They shouldn't charge you more than about $40 to take a look at the lcd cable, they are normally pretty quick to get at. It is worth a shot as lcds typically range from $400 - $1000 and to have someone install it would be probably another $50-$100

hope this helps a little

Lcd disolay has liens through it and colors are off.


If tapping the screen (on sides or back of case - not the screen itself !) affects the display it is usually loose connections either at the motherboard or behind the display where ribbon cable connects. relatively easy repair for someone who can take apart a laptop but you need the repair manual because there is a sequence that needs to be followed.
