Question about Computers & Internet

There are thin vertical lines appearing on my Toshiba Qosmio G10. These lines are thread thin. First there was one, now there are two and a third is appearing. Can you please tell me what the problem might be and if it is fixable at a reasonable cost. Many thanks. I look forward to hearing from you. Paddy

    Thanks a million. Just one question, how do I check the video card to ensure that it's it that's causing the problem.

    Many thanks for your help

Its not the card. It is more likely the ribbon connector between the PCB and the LCD screen. Should not cost all that much to get it fixed.

There are several things that can cause it. You are best to have an expert technician come in and take some test on it in order to determine if it is from vertical blanking failure or something else. It is not easy to fix this yourself, if you have no experience, because there are a lot of parts that have to be removed before you can reach the components. It could be as simple as a loose connector ribbon or a bust capacitor, but it could also be more complicated. Hence, in my honest opinion, better get a qualified technician.

Hope that helps!

The fault is something related with its interface board between panel and its drive. In most cases, it will be irrepairable. Anyway, contact the authorized service center for Dell.

Suddenly a very thin vertical yellow/white line appearing on my HP desktop monitor? pls help


Does it appear THE MOMENT you turn the unit on?

If it does, then you will have to run the monitor's self-test function by turning it on with the data cable (the one that does NOT connect to the power outlet) DISCONNECTED from the computer.

If the line still appears, then the monitor is faulty & cannot be "repaired". Usually, the entire LCD module is replaced.

If the line does not appear in the self-test mode, then check if it's connected to an ON-BOARD display adapter (typically found in the back of the machine, towards the middle area, towards where the ethernet cable and USB devices plug in) or a EXPANSION CARD (normally located towards the BOTTOM part in the back of the machine).

If it plugs in to the on-board slot, then the motherboard may be faulty. If it plugs in to an expansion card, then it's the card that may need to be replaced.

Of course, these are merely possibilities, but the most likely failing component here is the monitor itself. Busted display adapters very rarely, if at all, manifest these horizontal or vertical lines and STILL boot up. Regardless if it's on-board or expansion card, a failing display adapter would normally have either no display at all, or it would just simply stop booting up (screen remains dark: no lines).

Vertical yellow line on sony vgn-ar130g screen


Hey patrickocon,

If this line appears whenever your computer is in operation (from start-up to shut-down), you may be encountering what is occasionally referred to as a "line fault." Unlike dead pixels which can generally be repaired, these types of problems may require you to replace the entire LCD screen. These lines may appear for a variety of reasons, but can often be attributed to standard usage, damaged/loose internal connections or impact damage to the screen itself.

I would first suggest contacting the manufacturer if your laptop is still covered by the original factory warranty. In many cases, manufacturers are able to replace defective LCD screens or provide you with the name, phone number and location of a third-party service center in your area. If you would prefer to not deal directly with Sony or a third-party facility, remember that you can always seek additional assistance through your local Best Buy™ store.

Hope this helps you out.

Sincerely,
Aaron
Go Ahead. Use Us.

It's a hardware fault, you will normally notice if you push on the screen at the top of the line it will disappear, unfortunately you will have to replace the screen.
