Question about Dell Inspiron 8200 Notebook

1 Answer

Vertical screen lines and resolution is in extra large format.

I have 2 problems with this unit.
1. I have just started experiencing multipal vertical colored lines on my screen. I thought it was a driver problem.
2. When I start up the computer the resolution is in the lowest position (800x600pxl) and when I press apply the resolution goes back to the lowest choice. If I also change the color quality to 32 bit and press apply it also goes back to 4bit. It won't stay in the correct resolution or color quality. I think it may also be a driver.

3. Could these 2 problems be related to a driver problem or to a virus condition?

Possibly either or a hardware fault..
Does the pc have an external monitor port? Most do.. If you can get another monitor, plug it up and use the correct hot keys (keys on your keyboard) to switch between the laptop monitpr & the external, it might help diagnose the problem. Maybe select a generic driver for the external monitor.. Although the pc will probably pick it up ok. If you need further help, let me know. Rgds.

2/5 of the screen has vertical lines multi colors. Is this a fixable problem?


My 3-year old 52-inch Toshiba flat panel TV (Model # 52RV53U, Serial # AM409000295) developed a display problem (purchased Aug. 2008, manufactured July 2008). Vertical multicolored lines appeared on the screen just left of center. The band of thin vertical bars is 5.5 inches wide. The lines are about 1/16-inch wide. They are stationary, always exactly in same place. They over-ride any other picture on the screen (no transparency). They are there all time even with no video inputs to the TV after the unit is turned on. See picture #1. The TV works well in every other respect, but, obviously, it is annoying to watch the picture with the color band blocking about 1/6 of the picture.

Further info, pics, comments, and updates on my Facebook page at

I already swapped out the TCON board with no improvement and replugged the TCON board cables with no improvement.

Most likely it is the flat panel tab bond failure (panel made by Samsung). Further resolution updates will be on my Facebook page.

I use a acer aspire 5810TZ and have a vertical line runnng through my screen how do i fix this problem


Well, if this is the same problem I'm having with my 5810T, then the settings have nothing to do with the vertical lines. There are vertical lines on my acer because the framing of the screen isn't thick enough. Thus, the lines are caused by the lack of sturdiness. Changing settings does nothing. However, pushing on the frame on the bottom of the screen adds more vertical lines. Releasing gets rid of some of them. Tapping also helps, but the problem only gets worse with time.

LCD monitor have Vertical lines and black colour become greenish


normally the 19" resolution can support up to 1280*1024, but if it comes with vertical lines in full screen, it might indicate the panel is no longer to work and probably it's time to replace new one.

Black colour displaying become greenish and narrow vertical lines


Most LCD monitors have a default refresh rate of 60 Hz. Older monitors also have limited resolution. Please check your display settings and ensure you're not using a refresh rate higher than 60, or a resolution higher than what it supports. If either one is the case, you're lucky the LCD still works.

LIGHT BLUE VERTICAL LINE ON MONITOR


The vertical line is a bad pixel sensor at the edge of the screen, your screen has hundreds of vertical and horizonal pixel sensors. This is an indicator that the screen is going out and need replacing.

Screen size


Hello,

Most Likely: Your screen resolution needs to be 1024x768.
Less Likely: You have an Appearance scheme such as Large Contrast.

Solution: Access Control Panel, select Display, then Settings tab and then move the slider to the above or higher resolution.

In the Theme or Appearance tab (depending on OS) choose a generic Theme or Color Scheme.

Regards,
Worldvet

Dark vertical lines on tv screen


If under warranty then of course use that.
This is a display problem. One solution someone knowledgeable in electronics can try.
This problem can be caused by a bad connection fitting of the flat cables on LCD controller board. Dis-connect the flat cables from the LCD controller(T-CON) and carefully reconnect them. Try the unit before reassembling the back cover. You may have to disconnect/reconnect several times to show improvements if this is the problem.
