Pixal loss lines on screen???????????

About 6 months ago I got a thin pink line on the screen of my laptop (Dell Inspiron 9300) and was told it was pixal loss and the only way to fix it was a new screen which cost several hundred dollars. Today I got another one just a different color. They are very thin and so far don't bother me but is it a sign of something else. Why is this happening?

    I have a problem much the same but the lines go away sometimes when i restart my computer and come back when i've had it on for long periods of time. they are also mostly located at the bottom of the screen.

    3 thin lines (2 blue - 1 red) Plus 2 blank white patches that run the entire length of the computer. Both patches clear in about 2-4 min.

Call Dell. Last night I booted up my Inspiron 9300 and saw the line. The laptop is 3 years old and I was not happy. So I started searching the web and found out this is a common problem with some dell laptops especially the 9300's. I also came across several message boards where people were reporting that Dell was replacing the screens free of charge. So I called Dell this morning. While I was on the phone for quite sometime while the customer service rep researched the problem and placed the order, they are sending out a shipping box for me to return the laptop to have the screen replaced free of charge.

Good Luck

Sometimes this is a sign of the monitor ribbon disconnecting from your motherboard. If you feel confident in taking your computer apart, you can reseat the cable and see if this improves. Usually pixels die individually, lines tend to be a video card error.

Dell inspiron e1505 laptop has a thin light green line on far left of screen and a thin pink line approx an inch to the right of it. Both lines run from top to the bottom of the screen. I'm assisting in...

If you were to plug it into an external display, that will tell you whether it is a VGA uProcessor fault or a screen fault. If it is a screen fault, checkout ebay for a replacement screen.
Hope that helps.

My dell inspiron 9300 has a thin yellow line running down the left side of the monitor. some weeks it will be there, sometimes it won't. help!

Reseating the video cable eliminate those lines that appear.

If your not familliar in tearing down the laptop, try bringing the computer to a local tech and have the video cable reseated. They can open the hinge cover/panel in order to access the video cable at the back portion of the laptop.

Numerous, bright, multi-colored vertical lines on 9300 screen

Try taking out the Ram memory first one stick at a time. Sometimes when Ram goes bad or overheats, it first affects the display. If that is not the issue, here is the link to your service manual.

Vertical lines in my laptop screen

Try connecting an external monitor to the Dell Inspiron 9300 and see if the vertical line is also present on the monitor. If the monitor display is fine, then your laptop’s LCD display panel is defective. If the monitor also displays the vertical line, then your problem is with either the video card or motherboard located inside your laptop.
Not sure if the Compaq Presario has an external monitor plug, but if it does the above procedure can be applied to that one as well.
