Vertical strip of flashing horizontal lines on Acer Aspire 7551G screen


More than likely it's the lcd screen and will have to be replaced. I could be the video card, but most likely the lcd screen especially when you can put pressure on the screen and cause changes. To isolate the problem try connecting another monitor to the computer. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker and connect it to the laptop. If the Borrowed monitor displays ok, then the problem is with your lcd screen and the video card is ok. If the Borrowed monitor displays the same as your lcd screen then the problem is with your video card inside the computer.

Plug in an external monitor and see if the display shows up on it. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If so that proves your video card is ok. The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

Once you narrow it down to the lcd screen as being the problem you might try taking the lcd screen apart to reseat the lcd cable on the back at the top of the lcd. Just unplug it and plug it back into the connector. You can also try doing the same where the lcd cable plugs into the motherboard. Just pull it out and put it back.

I thin k I am having back ilight and/or inverter program with my HP dv6275us Notebook based on the following: - machine powers on but o video or image on screen or image is extremely faint. Upon closer...


These are typical symptoms of a faulty LCD cable or screen inverter board.
The LCD cable transfers data signal from the motherboard & video card to the LCD screen. It also supplies high voltage DC power to the screen inverter board. The screen inverter board works as a power supply for the backlight lamp mounted inside the LCD screen. It converts low voltage DC power to high voltage AC power needed for the backlight lamp.
As for the cost, I would suggest a search on ebay.com

LCD Screen colors are bad on toshiba Satellite M115-S3094


Was the screen showing all OK before you updated the driver? If so did you try backing out (uinstalling) the graphics driver? You mentioned gtaking screen cover off ... did you completely remove the screen from the laptop, including the wide connector at the top and the smaller one at the bottom, and the small one to the backlight? These connectors might be seated wrong, and you'll have to reseat them, mostly the big one at the top. Best o'luck, Moorethemerrier!

A small portion of monitr screen is solid black with no display.


Sounds like you have a broken screen.
Is there a crack along the edge of the black area?
If you apply a little finger pressure in the black area does it change color? If it doesn't change color then you you have a cracked screen.
Therefore you need a replacement screen.

Toshiba Satellite P105-S6124 Screen lines


Are these lines on the screen during the whole boot process? If so then the screen cpu and/or the video cpu has gone bad. Connect an external monitor. If the picture is clear, no lines, then the problem is the LCD screen. If the lines appear on the external monitor during the boot process then the mother board will need replacement.

Good Luck

Vertical lines in my laptop screen


Have you tried hooking it up to an external monitor?
This would ensure that it's the screen and not the video card..
If you do that and you receive a good picture then it could be something as simple as a loose video cable. Or it could also mean something like a bad video card or the expensive one, a bad screen.

Screen Problem


Unfortunately the fix is a new lcd. The tab welds at the top of the lcd are not allowing that portion to work correctly. As these tabs are fused to the lcd you will need to replace the lcd. My Toshiba M105 is almost the same.(I Have 4" Gone) on the right side. so to use it I clicked and dragged my system tray from the bottom to the side. And shrunk my web pages to utilize tthe good portion.

I suppose I should replace it but being only 18months old the LCD's run about 160.00 USD.(sometimes I just hook up an external monitor.
