I have had my Acer One netbook for almost 5 months and during that time my screen has played up twice. It loses the definition and the colour is all over the place. The first time it went, it corrected...

Right click Desktop click Properties
Check that the resolution is on your normal setting and Colour Depth is set to 32bit
It might be worth checking you have the latest drivers for your graphics card

You can download Driver Genius Free Trial it will tell you what drivers you need for your Graphics
Then you can google them and download them

I think though what you are describing might be the ribbon cable attaching your screen to the laptop, this ribbon cable passes through the hinge of the laptop and sometimes constant moving of the screen up and down can damage the ribbon wire if it is not placed properly.

Toshiba Qosmio notebook screen is booting up in 4bit mode instead of 32 and has lines across the screen.

right click on the desktop>properties and you should be able to adjust them. Set the resolution at 800x600 first before you adjust the colour depth. Then you can adjust the resolution etc properly.

Furuno fcv-667.When powered on good screen comes on for 1-2 seconds, then goes to a solid blue screen

1. Check that you have not altered settings - HUE, that is, background colour.
2. Go to menu - select FACTORY SETTINGS and try that. The unit may go back and rectify.
3. Check depth setting - if greater than depth operating, will show just blank screen.
Hope this might be helpful

Computer monitor goes blank after initial start-up reaches the desktop

Try setting your graphics card output to something simpler like a basic 640x480 resolution 64k colours and see if it still does it... it maybe that you have the resolution/colour depth to high for the monitor to properly handle

if it is stable at the lower setting slowly increase untill you reach a point that you and your monitor are both happy

Nvidia 8600m gt graphic issue

Whats the Operating System? XP? Have you downloaded & installed an updated driver? Sometimes the software driver corrupts & you should install the newest version from the website.

If you can get an external monitor, plug it into the external monitor port.. (most laptops have one) There will be a keyboard combination to switch between your laptop screen & the external monitor. This will help diagnose the fault. What is the results of the above? Rgds,

Right click on the desktop anywhere there is clear space.
Select Display properties and then select the last tab at the top of the window that pops up.
You should see the slider there to set the resoloution, and to the right is the colour depth.
