Yellow Stripe Down Middle of Screen on Laptop

Ok, so last night a yellow stripe appeared down the middle of my screen. I have an Acer Aspire 5517. The stripe is about two inches wide and goes from the top of the screen to the bottom, directly to the left of the very middle. Now beforehand, that part of the screen had horizontal lines appearing and disappearing in quick succession. It still does that, but with the added bonus of the yellow stripe.

The horizontal lines have been going on for a few days now, but neither they or the stripe effect anything in a major way. The yellow stripe distorts the color on that part of the screen, but I can still see through it. If I squeeze the plastic trim on or to the right of the stripe at the top, that half of the laptop screen goes white or distorts completely, then goes back to normal when I let go. It doesn't do this to the left side of the stripe at all.

I'm at a loss of what to do, so does anyone have any idea what's wrong or how to fix it? Should I just take it in to have it looked at?

    Thank you for the solution! The issue wound up getting worse before I could do anything, resulting in more than half of my screen going out, so I went ahead and sent it into the company. Got it back today and it's all fixed now! Thanks again, <3

This system has a VGA port so you can plug in an external monitor. You can buy one for less than $130 based on the Sunday ads. Other than that, it is new laptop time.

My screen has a purple stripe right down the middle. It is present at all times computer is on.


You have a defective LCD screen. If your laptop is still under warranty, Acer should replace the screen at no cost to you. If your system is out of warranty, Acer can assist you in replacing the screen, however, this will be at cost to you.

I have a Logitech Webcam. When I am using the camera I sometimes have a yellow stripe down the middle. How do I stop this stripe appearing. Thanks Barbara


You cam might be broken, or if all else fails, try turning you cam off unplugging it, un installing it, and re installing it on to the computer. That might help.

Acer 5670 screen has dark transparent vertical stripe


you will need to check the display cable and if that is ok, you will need to replace the display panel... You're getting a short on the circuit board causing rows of pixels to be blocked out
