THE BIOS IS CORRUPT

MOTHERBOARD NEEDS TO BE REPLACED (300-1000USD) OR BIOS CHIP NEEDS TO BE REPROGRAMMED BY A PROFESSIONAL

On my screen I keep seeing red vertical stripes. How do I get rid of this?


Hi,

You can try to hook up an external monitor. If the vertical linea are visible on the external display, try to update your video card driver. If it is not showing in the external monitor, You are having an LCD problem.

If you don't have any external monitor, go to BIOS setup and check if the lines are visible, if yes, you're having an LCD/screen problem. You need to replace either the LCD cable, LCD inverter or LCD itself.

Hope this helps.

Hey I got an IBM T42. It boots fine when its clear but after that it horizontal lines being to appear througout the scree.


Hi,

Either you can hook up an external monitor or access BIOS setup (Basic Input/Output System) to replicate if the horizontal line appears. This step will check if the problem is with the video card or the LCD.

If you get the horizontal line on the BIOS or never get it on the external monitor, then surely the LCD screen is beginning to fail. You need to reinsert and/or replace the LCD inverter or LCD itself.

However, if you see the horizontal lines on the external monitor but not on the BIOS, try to update the video driver. If this will not resolve the issue, you need to replace the video card or the motherboard of your laptop.

Hope this helps.

I would place bet on the LCD going/gone bad. If it works with an external monitor that is about all that is left. Google LCD replacement for screens.

I flashed the bios on my gateway m675 and it stopped working. It turns on but screen is blank. If I hook it up to an external monitor I can get into bios. Is there anyway to get it back to the way it was?...


pls check the bios set up externally if you mistakenly turn the brightness down, and correct it

or see if ther is any brightness button you accidentally pushed on the top of your laptop

or ther could be some problem with your LCD inverter or the LCD itself.

Well, you can purchase a replacement bios chip online. Depending on your technical skills that option may be over your head, but there are companies online that will do it for you if you mail it to them. You could also purchase the chip and bring it to a local shop, though not all shops will have a technician that can do this for you. You could also see if you can send it to gateway for reflashing, it will probably be costly but may help you.
