Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

Dell 1501 Laptop. Have a 2 inch vertical bar that is almost in the center of the laptop screen. This doesn't show up with a external monitor. Have updated bios and video driver and nothing seems to fix it. Everything was ok before I updated the bios and now I cannot go back. Dell says the Screen is now. (for updating bios that sounds far fetched to me)

Unfortunately this usually is an LCD screen or cable problem and could just be coincidence. You CAN revert to a previous BIOS version, but I am not aware of a way to get one.

Laptop display has vertical bars


Hi,

It is unfortunate that the LCD screen has vertical bars on it. Please send me a picture of the LCD screen via email to Kiran_kumar_a@dell.com. You may also try performing an LCD BIST using the below link:

Also try connecting a known good external monitor and check if that helps.

Thanks and Regards.
Kiran Kumar.

Vertical black bars screen


Try connecting an external monitor to the 15 VGA (video) plug on the laptop and see if it displays properly on the monitor. You may have to direct the video from the laptop to the monitor by holding down the blue <FN> (key next to the space bar) and then press down the <F8> key.
If the display on the external monitor is correct, then you either have a problem with the laptop's LED display screen or cable that connects the LED to system board. Here is a link for the service manual:

Dell Inspiron 1501 Laptop-6'' Red Vertical Line


The color red and especially red colored lines or a pinkish hue are indicative of an impending screen failure. The only other possibility is that the data cable on the left backside of the lcd panel may be loose at the socket or on the motherboard. 9 times out of 10 though, it is the lcd panel that it failing.

My Dell Latritude C610 has a screen issue, there are vertical bars about two inches wide, in several spots on the screen where the colour is different, sometimes red and sometimes blue, but the screen is...


Following factors could be causing this problem and solution as well:

1) Cable Cut: check is to see if the cable between the screen and laptop is pinched or cut. Every laptop has this wire that runs through one of the hinges

2) If this problem temporary i mean for some seconds then it could be a short signal cut problem to screen which causes screen distortion

3) Connect an external monitor and restart the laptop. If you see the same strip on the external video, then that is the motherboard or the video card problem in case you have a video card on your laptop apart from integrated graphics chip

Ahlf of screen is black or vertical lines


Try connecting a monitor to the external VGA socket on the laptop. If the problem replicates there, then you have a graphics card or driver fault. If the problem is only on the screen of the laptop itself, then you have a panel which is on the way out.

Dark Grey Vertical Bar


1. try connecting laptop to an external monitor and check if this vertical dark gray bar appears. if yes it means video is the problem. you need to boot in safe mode then uninstall the video driver. boot to notmal mode then download and install the latest video driver. if still same problem then replace video card. if video is built in with motherboard you need to replace motherboard.

2. when the vertical dark gray bar did not appear in the external monitor then it means issue is with the LCD panel. Do this turn off laptop. press and hold D key then press Power button at the same time or Press and hold on the Fn key then Power button check if the test will run. Color displays full screen when you keep pressing on N key when the colors appears check the vertical dark gray bar if still exist in the test, this means LCD panel and LCD cable needs to be replaced.

Vertical lines in my laptop screen


I know not everyone has this ability, but if you can, go to a friend's house and hook up an external monitor to your laptop. You may need to use the function keys to switch from LCD to external, but if the lines go away on the external, you have a bad LCD. If the line shows up still on the external, then your problem is either:

a) video driver (free, easy fix)
b) bad inverter (video 'outputter') ...approximately $10-50/varies + labor costs to replace
c) bad video card/motherboard ...usually between $200-$400 + labor to replace

Hope this helps - please be sure to rate my answer :)

Vertical lines in my laptop screen


Hi mikenstacy

Try to connect a normal desktop monitor to the laptop (there will be one vga port where you can connect the monitor) and if you see those lines on external monitor as well then most probably video card has gone bad (you can try to reinstall video drivers in this case) if those lilnes are not there on external monitor then problem is with your LCD so if system is in warranty then get it replaced other wise get in touch with local compter shop and get it replaced.

let me know if this helped

Dell 1501 Laptop- 2 inch vertical bar on screen


The easiest thing to try would be rolling back the video driver. Go to Start>right click my computer>click properties>click hardware>click device manager>click on the + next to display adaptor>right click on your adaptor>click on properties>click on the driver tab. Then click on roll back driver and follow directions. If this solves your problem please rate this as fixed. If not, don't rate and add a comment letting me know what happened. I'll always be glad to help you further. Thanks.
