Question about Dell (F3515), (128 MB) Graphic Card

Monitor displays vertical lines

The image is often degraded by vertical wavering lines. I can sometimes get past this problem by re-booting several times. Also when i reduced acceleration it improved.

    You really should say what kind of graphics card that you have.

    What you need to do is uninstall your drivers, restart your computer and then update your drivers, restart your computer and then see if you have vertical lines. Try to turn agp fast writes off if its an agp card.

Vertical lines can also be caused by an inverter going out, if the driver updates are not successful you might give it a little time to see if the problem area goes out completely, if its an inverter on the fritz it won't take long to go. Then you will know exactly where the problem is.

Just an update. If that doesnt work then your vid card is damaged and you need a new one. Considering it is 128 mb it cant be too new. Also make sure if your motherboard is agp you get and agp card and if its pci-e get a pcie card.

Vertical lines display


LCD Screen needs to be replaced more than likely. You can take the lcd screen apart and reseat the lcd cable by pulling it out and putting it back. You can also remove the cables from the Lcd Inverter then put them back. Sometimes it was just that they needed reseating.

You could plug an external monitor into your laptop's vga port and boot up an see if the image is clear on the external monitor. If so that means the video card is ok, but the monitor has issues.

There are two vertical lines on my monitor one is red and other is green


You may have several issues, lets try to narrow down whats wrong. When you see the lines hit the print screen button. Then go into Paint and select paste, this should make an image of whatever was on the screen when you hit print screen. Are the lines still there in the same spot? If so check the cables between your monitor and the PC. If not it is your monitor, check around for magnetic devices near the monitor if you can not find any the monitor may be bad.

Signal degradation across vertical section of


This appears to be a common complaint on LCD monitors. Some LCD screens have control issues.
An LCD screen is the panel and a bunch of Line control chips wrapped around the outer edge. A problem with one line top to bottom or left to right is almost ALWAYS the LCD panel itself.
A problem with a fixed band (The band is in the same place at any resolution) is often the LCD but might be the signal driver chip (A large plastic pack with about 100+ leads). A person with a VERY small soldering iron might be able to resolder it, but they MUST know what they are doing. (board must be heated, lead free solder, eye like an eagle...)
If the band moves around or changes width, it is the signal chip or the power supply to it from the power board.
It can be software if there is a firmware upgrade. This takes a shop.

IBM Laptop A31 2652 Garbled video even at initial boot screen


Connect an external monitor to the laptop, power up the monitor first and then bootup the laptop. The Windows image will automatically divert to the external monitor.
If the images is OK then the video card is OK.
From the description of the fault, it indicates that the fault could be a faulty video cable or video connector. Try reseating the video cable/connector on the motherboard.
Get back to me if you still have problems together with any error messages etc.
