Hi,

If the thinkpad is under warranty then i suggest you to get it replaced or return it to them and they will repair it up.There are no home remedies to fix it up..

Since the screen costs 150 pounds plus another service charge may also be their to fix it up..It would be better to get a new one with a warranty and make sure you take the warranty extension packs for the new one,once the warranty expires this way it will help you to save alot of money..

Goodluck..

Well..you can run it with an external monitor you know..and extend it's life..otherwise, you'll need to do computer hospice on that unit..

    you may find that moving to a more accessible laptop, like a Sony or Toshiba, will server you better, by the way.

Twenty plus vertical lines in my IBM G40 monitor is there any solutions to clear those lines?


Hi there.
If the line appear from the moment you switch on your Laptop then your screen has gone faulty and will need to be replaced. Other option would be to use external screen.

My IBM R52 laptop displays some vertical thin lines (red,green,blue,white,etc). I noticed this problem arises basically IBM R52 and R80 models. Some of my friends too are suffering from this problem and...


This sounds similar to a fault i had with an old dell laptop... very thin vertical lines running the length of the screen. Unfortunately it was an LCD problem, the screen was kaput replacing the screen solved the problem.

To test if it is an LCD fault, simply plug your laptop into an external monitor... if you get no lines on external monitor then its a faulty LCD screen.

Is that solution genuine enough for you?

Laptop screen displays vertical lines of various colours


Have you tried to connect your laptop to external monitor?
If you get normal picture on external monitor, then you need to replace LCD screen, but if you get same picture on external screen, then unfortunately you will need new motherboard, because graphics card is integrated to motherboard.

Vertical lines on thinkpad T43p screen.


You have identified the fault is the video card, I am in agreement. The fault is on the motherboard and a replacement motherboard is the only fix. This may not be a cost effective solution, I would recommend you put your money towards a new laptop.

Turned on and just get vertical lines


if you have tried an external monitor to the laptop and it is still giving the same display then I think that there is something faulty with your vga or display card..Check the manufacturers website and it could be a driver issue but if not then it's time to get a new pc..unless you have the knowledge of going further..Please leave a voting for my help.Many thanks...

My Ibm Laptop r51 has a vertical lines on the screen


The lines appearing on your LCD means it has a defect on the screen.

There are 3 types of pixel defect
1) dead pixel - pixel is always off
2) stuck pixel - pixel is always on
3) hot pixel - pixel is on but in red, green, blue or yellow, can also be a light black color

You can try to fix stuck or hot pixels but dead is dead.
1st method, flashing different colors rapidly:
JSScreenfix.com has a great tool. This is their free java applet or you can download it below.

2nd method, applying pressure to pixel:
Damp paper towel, Small stylus or dull pencil.

3rd method, tapping the pixel:
Pen with cover on or another small, blunt object.


If your laptop is still under warranty, get it replaced. If not you are looking at the most expensive part in a laptop to get replaced. (LCD screens on laptop is roughly equivalent to 40-60% of the total laptop cost

Please rate this if it this helps.

Blue line on the screen


Try hooking up an external monitor to the video adapter on your laptop. If the screen appears fine (no blue line) then your video card is good but you laptop's LCD monitor is bad. I would check eBay for a replacement. They are not too difficult to replace if you are somewhat mechanically inclined (can unscrew some screws and disconnect a wire plugged in the motherboard).

hope this helps! : )
