My laptop has a faint light blue shadow appearing to the right of any black to white high contrast image or any plain black text. Is it a heat problem with my video card or is my monitor about to fail?

Im seeing shadow/double images of text,icons etc.even a system recovery has not helped.what is causing the problem?


Most probably you have a problem with the connection between your graphics adapter socket & your monitor. Check this connection & make sure it is not loose & that the cable connecting your computer to the monitor is not damaged or is not running very close to a source of electromagnetic interference.

The screen went blank while the computer was on, we restarted it, the screen shows the Dell sign & the white bar then it goes blank, it won't go into safe mode, the light is green on the monitor, what...


If there is a faint image in the background it is the coils on the planar if no image it is either the invertor or the backlight
If you have a faint image resolder the coils or replace them

LCD screen not lighting


It sounds like the Backlight for your laptop gave out.

Heres a simple test to see if THAT is the case

Power it up while under a bright light 100W or better possibly even sunlight on a sunny day. Move the screen at varying angle to the light. If you can see what appears to be a "Shadowy" image of your desktop then YES indeed your backlight went out.

Your backlight should be replaced by an experienced service tech. Unless you are comfortable with working with high voltage electronics (The backlight has a charge capacitor) that can injure you if you are not careful.

There is a VGA connector on the back of your laptop. You can plug in a monitor to that so you may use your laptop. (Until you can get it fixed) Just plug in the monitor and press <Fn> and <F5> to switch to the external display

Hope this helps

My 7 yr. old son, somehow, turned my screen black, with white print. It's very ******* the eyes. I've gone into easy access and nothing is checked off, but the black screen remains,,,,HELp!!!!!


I have a feeling he turned on high contrast mode (supposedly it's meant to make reading the screen easier for people who are disabled, I think it just hurts everyone's eyes). To change that, right click on your desktop and go to appearance and click on the top pulldown menu and select windows xp style. Hopefully that will fix it.
