I'm just guessing but it sounds more like the video card than the monitor, as your computer freezes. I would try another monitor, if available, to see if it still happens. I would also open the computer and pull the video card and reseat it. If it's an "onboard" video, I'd suggest putting another video card in an empty slot to see if the problem goes away.
Otherwise, I'd suspect memory, or the motherboard itself. Have you had any lightning or major power outages lately? A surge suppressor is not necessarily proof against such things, as many believe.

My screen has verticle lines and the colors are incorrect


Try your monitor on another computer (laptop or desktop), to see if the problem "follows' the monitor.

Try another monitor on your computer, to see if your computer's video-card is creating the problem.

Try a different "data" cable between your computer and your monitor, to ensure that all 3 "primary" colours are being transmitted.

I have a Dell computer with a flat screen now all of a sudden there are fine pink verticle lines along the right side of the screen. There is also a group of fine pink verticle lines about 1.5 inches wide...


Try the following steps:
  1. On the monitor, press Menu, and select Factory Reset.
  2. If the monitor has more than one type of connection available such as VGA, DVI, or HDMI, try a different type of connection.
  3. Connect the monitor to another computer. If the line appears when the monitor is connected to the second computer, the monitor might be damaged or defective.Otherwise, the video card and driver is causing the problem from the computer.let me know if this resolves ur issue.. if not then we need some other steps.. regards,guru

Blue verticle line is displayin


The blue line is most likely the result of your monitor's screen going bad. One thing you can try is disconnecting and re-connecting your video cables to make sure it's tight and has a good connection. This probably won't help, but it's worth a try. You may also want to connect the monitor to another computer to see if the blue line stays, or goes. If the blue line stays with another computer connected, the problem is inside the monitor. If the line goes away, you should replace/repair your computer's video card and/or cable. Otherwise, you need to replace/repair your LG monitor.

Do these work as tv monitors as well?


jon_bailey, Some monitors do, and some monitors don't have that capability. If your unit has other types of baseband audio/video inputs and supports the old 525 line video signal it might work. Do you see any RCA type jacks on rear of monitor? RED, GREEN, BLUE for input of video with sync on blue? do you also see some inputs called H and V for the horizontal and verticle sync signals. You will need to contact ADVUEU TECH and try to download a .pdf file of the owners manual to find out all of the units capabilities. Bye for now. 12fixlouie

What can cause a single red line to appear on my laptop LCD screen? It's a small/fine red line appear horizontally (left to right) It's NOT radio interference,back light,broken ribbon cable,or connector...


Thats a generic problem with LCD screens. Its more common in Mobile screens. Sorry, no there is no fix to it other than replacing the LCD itself. Just pray that it shall not grow because as and when the compressed gas from within the LCD will leak the line will be becoming broader and broader. It is caused by damage to the LCD corner Just a hit on side of LCD and a hairline crack for giving way to the encapsulated gas.
