Re: Possible Crack/Spillage in LCD Screen
I'm afraid you need to replace he LCD screen of your laptop. Replacing LCD screens is a bit complicated, that I suggest you send it to the Manufacturer's Service Center if it is still under warranty to avid voiding your units other warraty.

Assuming you have tried altering display aspect ratio and or resolution it may be that the laptop received a knock and the ribbon connector between screen and laptop has dislodged or even split or torn.if there is a fine crack on the screen or it received liquid ingress spillage then you may need to replace screen...these are quite often sourced off eBay.an engineer will typically charge something like £75 - £100 to source and replace screens but if it is touchscreen much more.
Wow, what a bummer. I've never heard of a laptop cracking the screen just because it was left on overnight. Did you leave it on with the Lid closed? Even if you did I would think at some point the laptop would go into sleep or hibernation mode to turn itself down to minimal power usage. Can you see where the crack is? I mean can you open your internet browser and where the crack is things are not visible? If so you surely have a crack, but i still can't believe leaving it on caused it. Anyway since curry won't help you get a quote from your local computer shops, or ask curry for a repair quote, then try the guys at http://www.generalsystemsconsulting.com They will repair it and ship it back Fedex or UPS and their price will probably beat any quote including the shipping charge.
I would find that highly unlikely, in all the years of service I have never seen what you have described, in all cases it was human intervention. The lcd screens are quite robust unless you leave glasses on the keyboard or other object and close the lid which will crack the lcd or a fall.
This sounds like a hardware issue. This could be an issue with the graphics card (built onto the system board) or it could be a crack in the LCD screen. Regardless this is a hardware issue that software or driver updates cannot fix.
Most of the time when you're getting multi colored screen after the machine was dropped is caused by a cracked LCD. But I understand that it's hard to believe that screen is broken if you're not seeing any physical crack on the outside. By going to BIOS it will help you determine if your screen is cracked. If you don't know how to go to there follow the steps below:
>>> Turn on your PC, once it start up keep on tapping F2 button. You'll be routed on the page that has blue background. If on this page you'll still get multi colored screen then it's indeed broken screen. No crack on the outside but there's something needed to be checked inside.
Broken LCDs can only be fixed by replacing it with a new one. And if system is still under warranty you may contact Lenovo. They will offer you options to resolve the issue depending on what your warranty covers.
No, it can't be fixed, the lcd screen must be replaced. Including the labor it will cost you more than the netbook is worth so either try to find a sh screen and replace it yourself (just a screwdriver is needed) or just junk it and buy a new one.
Hi in this situation you should change the screen once it is crack, and if you still see the black part on the screen you can adjust the display using the hardware control management
if you please with my answer give me a vote
you can try pulling the screen apart and re-seating the ribbon cable, but the lcd might be broken, or one of the controller lcd chips might either be cracked or broken. Trying to reseat the lcd ribbon cable might help, but if there is a visible crack in the screen- you will need a new screen.
