Toshiba Qosmio G20-117 laptop computer. The display has developed a thin, vertical white line the entire height of the screen about 2cm from the left-hand edge of the screen. Is this a software (screen driver) problem or a hardware fault?

It's a hardware fault, you will normally notice if you push on the screen at the top of the line it will disappear, unfortunately you will have to replace the screen.

Suddenly a very thin vertical yellow/white line appearing on my HP desktop monitor? pls help


Does it appear THE MOMENT you turn the unit on?

If it does, then you will have to run the monitor's self-test function by turning it on with the data cable (the one that does NOT connect to the power outlet) DISCONNECTED from the computer.

If the line still appears, then the monitor is faulty & cannot be "repaired". Usually, the entire LCD module is replaced.

If the line does not appear in the self-test mode, then check if it's connected to an ON-BOARD display adapter (typically found in the back of the machine, towards the middle area, towards where the ethernet cable and USB devices plug in) or a EXPANSION CARD (normally located towards the BOTTOM part in the back of the machine).

If it plugs in to the on-board slot, then the motherboard may be faulty. If it plugs in to an expansion card, then it's the card that may need to be replaced.

Of course, these are merely possibilities, but the most likely failing component here is the monitor itself. Busted display adapters very rarely, if at all, manifest these horizontal or vertical lines and STILL boot up. Regardless if it's on-board or expansion card, a failing display adapter would normally have either no display at all, or it would just simply stop booting up (screen remains dark: no lines).

HI my viewsonic monitor is hving problem when i switch on my system it shows me a horizontal line on the screen, except that line i cant see any thing and eveything else is black on the screen..


The entire image is squeezed in that thin line because the vertical deflection unit has failed - the monitor will have to be opened, the vertical circuit identified and replaced - all this must be done by a repairman so take it as fast as you can to one. If you keep it functioning this way for long the screen will be burned.

Connect the VGA cable to the VGA port of the laptop then restart the computer.
Go to display properties and enable the second screen, then disable the notebook screen to display only on the external screen.

Well in my experience ZMarshall, repairing tv's typically cost about as much as a new one. Basically they will have to replace the entire screen, with parts and labor you could be looking at a grand.
