Your LCD screen is broken this occurs from dropping the lcd or putting too much force/pressure on it. The black discoloration is is the liquid crystal leaking. It is repairable but the question is do you want to spend the money to repair it. A new lcd will cost you around $350+. You can also check ebay they might have compatible LCDs that might work for a lot less. According to the specs you need to took for a 12.1" 1024*768 XGA TFT Standard aspect lcd screen but beware not all LCDs with those specs will work. If your interested I am experienced in replacing laptop screens.

Dell Latitude D505 half of screen is black with colored vertical lines.


Sounds like you have a section of dead pixels. This can happen if the laptop has been dropped a lot or stepped on or some type of impact on the laptop. This is a hardware issue. You will need to have the screen replaced. In my opinion, by the age of the laptop, its better off getting a new one.

Display has black circles lower left corner and upper right corner. were smaller but have grown. Maybe 2 in. each now. Also lines in pink and black across bottom. Everything else works OK. Bought past...


Well your on the right track I would say it's your LCD because your video chip wouldn't make black circles I don't think. The pink and black lines are a symptom of a LCD that has been broken and the circles sound like someone squeezed it to pick it up by the screen maybe. That would be for your venders warranty department to figure out though. If you really want to know you could buy a cable to hoot it up to an external video source if the display is fine, it's defiantly your LCD.

Sounds like your screen is taking a poop! Either that or the ribbon that goes to the screen is wearing out. Take to local pc repair shop.

Black line down right side of screen


turn off laptop.
press and hold on the D then press Power button.
during the LCD BIST test check if the black line down right side of the screen is visible. if yes LCD needs to be replaced. if not connect your laptop to an external monitor check if the black line display appears to the ext monitor, if yes uninstall / reinstall video driver if fails replace video card or if it is built in replace motherboard.

if no ext monitor available then run PSA (press and hold Fn key then press Power button)

check if the black line is visible. Check also in BIOS is black line is visible, if yes then uninstall reinstall first the video driver if fails replace LCD.
