Occasional colored vertical lines on the screen at startup

Once in a while when I start the computer, the monitor displays brightly colored vertical lines of differing widths. If I power it off and on a few times, it has eventually booted up normally. Does anyone know what the problem might be or if it is serious or not?

Base on our experience.... you are looking at a possible screen problem. Is it serious? yes as the screen replacement costs almost half of the total cost of the laptop.

but no harm trying this

1. remove the screws from the LCD bezel, remove the screen
2. detach the cable and reinsert them all both the inverter and the flex cable.

inverter is the circuit usually located at the bottom of the screen and the flex cable is the ribbon that runs from the laptop to the back of the lcd.

reseat them and see if your display improves

Colored vertical lines on monitor


Have you unplugged the power cord to the LCD? Let it sit for a minute, then try it. ALWAYS buy a UPS and plug any computer devices into it. Doesn't have to be big, a $50 unit will protect it from dangerous voltage surges.

CRT Monitor Displays only a thin bright horizontal line


Vertical IC loose connection. Best is to reflux it or resolder. It is in internal circuitry inside the monitor commonly an upside single line IC.

And its a minor repair only. But I recommend it to be serviced by a qualified technician. Inside it are plenty of nasty voltages. It might caught you.
