Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My Packard Bell (bought May 2010 new) laptop has a screen flicker problem. For the past week, every now and then the left half of the screen, or sometimes the bottom half of the screen, gets distorted with flickering lines which take on the colours on the screen. It sometimes doesn't happen all day, and sometimes happens many times a day for a few minutes each time. I am abroad so cannot access the warranty support at the UK shop where I bought it. The flickering lines happen at random times - whether the laptop is on AC power or battery, and whether I am just surfing the net or doing image editing. Sometimes the lines distort the screen so much I cannot see anything on that part. Any idea what this might be? Does it sound like a serious problem? Computer seems to be functioning fine apart from that. Thanks!

Packard bell easynote M5284 - black screen after installing new RAM


Sounds like the memory is incompatible with the laptop. Remove the memory and install orginal memory and boot again to see if every works correctly.. If so then either a memory module is bad or motherboard wont support the new memory (size or type)

Hello, i have a Packard bell igo , that when i try to boot 3 lights on the bottom of the screen and the cd keeps trying to run and also the screen is flicking , what should be the problem ?


Packard bell igo, is a notebook..what model is it. if the screen starts flickering on the go, then you could be having a flex problem or motherboard problem. but if it loads and later flickers, then you should check the installation. please explain a little bit more if this doesn't help.
Regards

Easynote will not go past packard bell screen


You may need BIOS update. Check your CMOS time at bios page.
If time is wrong, set it up and try again. If this is solved the problem, change the CMOS battery.

The screen on my packard bell laptop flickers. It is approx 1 year old. This happens if it has been on a while or has just powered up, when plugged in or running on battery regardless of what it is being...


Connect an external monitor to the laptop and power it up, if you see a clear image on an external monitor, this means your video card is OK.

If you see a dim image or flicking image on the LCD screen it means you have a backlight problem.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.
