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?

Re: Vertical screen lines and resolution is in extra...
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.

They haven't been able to solve it because it is a hardware problem....vertical lines, whatever color are indicative of a failing lcd panel. The lcd panel will continue to get worse until it fails completely. The only other possibility is a loose data connection on the back of the panel, if the data connection is slightly loose, re: one side of the panel is not tightly connected it can give off artifact in the way of vertical lines or checkered blocks.
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.
if this line is there during boot up then it is a monitor problem usually. but if it is not then it is a problem with your windows files. you could try reinstalling your windows from the disks you were given with it? otherwise i will look into it. email me if you need more help. firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
Yes the problem is with your video system hardware, most likely. A repair may be possible as it could be the delicate ribbon cable that provides the video signal from a connection on the motherboard to the actual display screen. It could be the display screen. If some tech-savy friend with a good rep and an anti-static mat, good tools, and good lighting wants to assist you or check it for you, you may give that a try. Consider first that if you have or can get an extended warranty from the manufacturer then you can have a higher likelihood of a good resolution of the problem of the vertical lines that distract from viewing the display.
There can be 3 possible reasons for this 1)Screen connector cable is loose. You can try to re-seat it and see if works. 2)display card problem. Connect your laptop to an external monitor and see if the problem persists. If it does not then 3)You will need to get a replacement LCD screen. Hope this helps!
