Question about PC Desktops

Thing Coloured lines on the monitor of my laptop.

Thank you so much for your reply to my post about three lines on my Laptop. Can you suggest where best it would be to leave the computer to be fixed. I wouldn't attempt to fix it myself. In the first instance I have very little if any technical knowledge of computers and secondly even if I could go by what you've suggested I have a disability which doesn't allow me to keep steady enough to hold screwdrivers or to work with fine wiring. If you happen to live in Ireland and happen to know where best to have this problem sorted out, perhaps you would let me know. Thanks. Paddy Doyle Website: www.paddydoyle.com

Half desk top is coloured green


Hello,

If you have tried the PC with another monitor and it does the same thing then the problem is your video card being faulty. If you have a video card installed (i.e. PCI, PCI-E) then you should take it out and connect the monitor to the inbuilt video card on your motherboard. If you don't know how to do this then I suggest taking it to a local PC helpdesk.

Hello, i broke the screen on my laptop wanting to switch it to my desktop monitor but for some reason it wont switch over. unfortunately since i cant see the screen i cant get into my startup menu any...


First, disconnect the laptop from the ac adapter and take off the battery and the memory. Press the reset button on your laptop. Connect your ac adapter only and press the power button two or three time while everything else is disconnected. Then, re-install your memory and your battery. Connect the ac adapter to the laptop and to your power source. Now turn on your laptop and see if you get a display on your laptop screen. If you do, then you have reset everything and you are back to where you started. Good luck and let me know how it goes.

I thought the screen was broken but its not , my laptop went ranbow coloured from one side and i dont know what to do?


try updating the video driver on support.dell.com and selecting drivers and downloads input your service tag it will bring up all your drivers . under video category look for your video driver. If you don't know which is your video driver go to device manager and under display adapter it will display it. if the rainbow distortion still is displayed try a diffrent monitor .If it show the same thing in another monitor then its your systems on-board video . If your system has a video card then replace video card.

Hi, i have acer ferrari 4002wlmi laptop. and now 2 vertical lines appered on screen, in the right side. red and green . what's theproblem ??? please help me to sort it out


If it is a video adapter issue, you should see the same issue when you plug in an external monitor. If not, then I am sorry to say, your screen is going bad. You can replace the screen, but may be less just buying a new laptop.

If a monitor shows the same lines, then I suggest re-installing your video drivers, but to my experience, you are probably out of luck. Sorry and G'luck...

My laptop mt3422 will power on but dont show nathing on scean


Please try to remove the battery and use the ac power only it it will still do the same thing.
Please try to use an external monitor to see if it will display what is supposed to be showing on the screen of your laptop. If it works with the external monitor, please try to press on the hot key combination for switching the display. If everything did not work, it is a hardware problem. Please let me know it any of these helped. Thank you.

This is the power supply inside the monitor itself. It is board that has three capacitors and they are blown out. It is a very inexpensive fix, if you are good with a soldering iron, if not let mw know and I will direct you to a company that can take care of this, for usually $30.00

Laptop is HP zd8639ea 17" screen. A thin vertical line of very small flashing dots has appeared in the centre of the screen. How to get rid or is it replacement screen time?


Hello Dave 1011

There's a (very) slim chance it's a cable issue. More than likely, however, it is, as you suspect, the monitor.

If you're handy w/ tools and such, you can replace the monitor yourself. It'll cost at least $225US so, shop around for a good deal. (Aside from the motherboard, the monitor is the most expensive part of your laptop.)

You can run a test of your video to confirm the problem. However, when the issue is localized on the screen like that, that's a red flag that your problem is hardware.

For now, you can connect an external monitor to your laptop. In fact, that's the best way to pin down the problem to the monitor (or cables connecting to the monitor). Do this before shelling out the bucks for a new or refurbished monitor.
If the problem persists while using an external monitor, then, the problem is still likely to be a hardware issue - but it isn't your monitor. The issue is in your video circuitry. Now you're talking about a new motherboard.

I also recommend you find the product service manual for your laptop and follow the steps for disconnecting the monitor from the laptop. Then, reconnect it. See if there are any changes in the symptoms. If you need help w/ this, just let us know.

Please, let us know if this was helpful for your or, of course, if you have any further questions.


Thank you
BJ
