I try a different video cable. Sometimes a wire goes bad or pin gets bent.

The more likely cause is simply a bad monitor. If it is still under hardware warranty I would say look into getting a replacement. Depending on how expensive a new one is versus how much a repair costs I would explorer those options. There is nothing that can be done in software though, it is a hardware issue.

When I bought this computer used, it worked fine for a couple months, then I began to notice multi-colored vertical lines on the screen. At first, there were only a couple lines. Then slowly but surely...


sound like you have two different problems the question mark is the computer can't find the hard drive. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Helvetica} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Helvetica; min-height: 14.0px}



Check for a failing hard drive


Trying booting from the Mac OS X install disc.

insert the Mac OS X install disc.

press the start button, while holding down the "C" key on the keyboard


Once you are running from the disc. go to Disk Utilities select the hard drive click the "repair permissions" button at the bottom.


If you get any red errors listed or it doesn't seem to finish repairing the permissions you have a failing hard drive and it will need to be replaced.


The vertical lines is one of two thing a failing LCD module of a failing video card.

Here is how to check which one it is.

connect an external display to it.

if the lines show on the external display is a video card. Unfortunately the video card is attached the logic board and the whole logic board will need to be replaced.


If the lines don't show up on the external display the LCD module will need to be replaced.

Shortly after the warranty was up the first vertical yellow line appeared and now, about 1 months later another vertical line appeared. He's not happy to hear it only gets worse and apple won't do anything...


Although its possible for graphics processor failures to cause vertical lines, they more often create horizontal ones. The first culprit to check for a vertical line problem is the LVDS cable, which it turns out is not that expensive a part (not counting all the work there is in getting to it). To verify this, I would gently flex the cable while the iMac is open and operating, and see if the lines get better or worse. It may also be that the cable itself is fine and just a few of the connector pins at either end are intermittent, in which case it just needs reseating.

White vertical line going through my IMAC screen


The line is an indication that there is a failure in the display, most times the failure will be limited to the line you see but occasionally the problem will spread, causing more lines. the only way to fix it is to have the display replaced.

Booting


the following id taken from my own XP media centre laptop.

line 1 [boot loader]
line 2 timeout=30
line 3 default=multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS
line 4 [operating systems]
line 5 multi(0)disk(0)rdisk(0)partition(2)\WINDOWS="Windows XP Media Center Edition" /noexecute=optin /fastdetect


ignore the "line 1,2,3 etc" I added them for clarity the formatting in this answer pane messes up the last line.

also before you get to edit the start up file make sure that the default operating system listed is the sae as line 5 starting from the "

hope this helps.

Mac laptop displays minimum brightness


Check to see if there is a box right below that... Saying something along the lines of readjust to brightness of surroundings, etc!  Make sure box is unchecked for you, in regrds to your issue and then see if that helps!  I will look a little further into it for you!  Let me know if that helps though!
