Acer monitor has green lines on the scren

Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) screens use less energy and display a clearer picture than the Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) displays that preceded them. These new LCD screens now dominate the computer monitor market. From time to time, however, pixels can become stuck and a green line can display on the screen. Removing this line is sometimes possible without sending the screen to the manufacturer for expensive repair.

Locate the pixels that are stuck on the screen. Download a free screen repair software program, such as UD Pixel or JScreenFix. Run the software and allow it to find and attempt to repair the stuck pixels. Turn off the LCD monitor. Apply the damp cloth directly over the stuck pixels and use a gentle pressure to spread the liquid within the screen.

Every time I move my laptop a little bit, lines appear along the bottom of the screen. Also, sometimes the screen shifts when I'm using the mouse ever since those lines began appearing. What are possible...

Well this could be several things first, I have seen this before in a mac book lines would appear on the screen if I moved the monitor a tad. I think it would be a safe bet that there is a short in your monitor and screen replacements are not easy but can be done. Usually costs 100 or less In my opinion you can get a really nice upgrade from your Dell for about 3 to 400 dollars

I have a samsung r620 and the monitor doesn't work. Sometimes it starts up fine, but then the monitor stops working, sometimes there is nothing on the screen and sometimes there are random colored vertical...

Check whether is there a device that is emitting ay magnetic field (like a sub woofer or a speaker or a radio) that is interrupting the graphis card.
try connecting an external monitor and check whether the same issue is happening so that you can confirm whether the issue is related to the LCD of the laptop or with the graphics card it self and replace the LCD or the motherboard (the graphics card will be integrated onto the motherbard) accordingly.

My dell inspiron 9300 has a thin yellow line running down the left side of the monitor. some weeks it will be there, sometimes it won't. help!

Reseating the video cable eliminate those lines that appear.

If your not familliar in tearing down the laptop, try bringing the computer to a local tech and have the video cable reseated. They can open the hinge cover/panel in order to access the video cable at the back portion of the laptop.

Replacing the whole monitor screen and bezel

Usually there is a plastic cover that snaps off right about the keyboard that covers the hinges. It is sometimes screwed from the bottom of the notebook thought. Once that is removed you should have a clearer view of what needs to be done. Sometimes there is a few screws from the bottom or back of the system that hold the hinges and sometimes the screws are on top of the hinges. You should also see all the cables that go from the screen to the system, unplug those. Hopefully that is all you need to do, but sometimes you have to remove the keyboard and palmrest to get the screen off. Good Luck!
