After opening & shutting the screen now shows green pixels where it should be dark and also the smoothing and size of the characters chnaged as did the general appearance of the screen. I have tried reloading the driver and have managed to get back smoothing etc but the green pixels remain. Also on the windows sht down display there is lighter blue striping in the bottom border. I have connected the laptop to display through an lcd tv which showed the display normally. Any ideas?

Re: Amilo A1650G laptop display problem.
ur display memory is corrupted. normally it is a shared memory or a part of the main memory unless u r using the graphics card.
try take out the RAM, clean it and put it back and switch on.
if not helped this, try with a good RAM.

Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) screens use less energy and display a clearer picture than the Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) displays that preceded them. These new LCD screens now dominate the computer monitor market. From time to time, however, pixels can become stuck and a green line can display on the screen. Removing this line is sometimes possible without sending the screen to the manufacturer for expensive repair.
Cheaper to throw away instead of trying to fix, if green is fading the rest will soon follow, I gather it must be near 4 or 5 years old as this seems to be the life span, sorry I have no solution as even dead pixel fixers will not restore lifeless colour, this is usually worn out caps and backlight.
control panel,display,settings you can make adjustments for more or less pixels or from the drop down list pick the appropriate level of color range or troubleshoot also select advanced then general hope this helps
Take a bright light and shine it on the screen when it is on. Can you barely see any display, but really dark? If so, the lamp or the lamp inverter has failed (some laptops use LEDs instead of CCFL lamps and has no inverter either).
Just hooking up to another display doesn't necessary tell you anything if it doesn't show anything. As sometimes you have to change a settings in the BIOS, use the Fn key plus another key that looks like a monitor, or change it through a display menu on the screen.
If tried the monitor on two other computers with the same result -- definitly your monitor is faulty. Take it to the repair shop. To make double sure, run your computer with another monitor. If everything is fine now; you can blame the monitor.
Plug your laptop to an external monitor using the monitor out port on the laptop. Hit the "function" key and the corresponding F key that has the LCD Screen/External Monitor icon. Usually around F6-F8 or so.
This will test if there is something wrong with the screen and if the laptop is booting up past the BIOS.
memory related(these all in one units have a problem that way.)
Run everesthome and update chipset<NORTHBRIDGE>Google the northbridge for updates.
nVidia GeForce FX Go5700 problem.Make sure all updates for graphic drivers have been installed, then attach an external monitor, the unit should support svga/dvi/s-video. Your graphics card has 128MB dedicated so if the external display responds the same way as internal monitor it's the video card or chipset.
Looks like its either faulty RAM or Display. In any case, I wouldn't advise you to open the laptop. Best bet is to take it back to the point of purchase. Since you only bought it in Nov.07, it should still be under warranty.
