It could be your video card. To confirm, use a different monitor with your computer and see if the same problem happens with the other monitor.
If the other monitor works fine, then the problem is with the original monitor; otherwise its the video card.
If the video card is built-in to your motherboard, there's not much you can do to fix it. If it's a separate card, I would suggest taking out the video card, inspecting the connectors for debris, and then re-insert the card. This "reseating" of the card might resolve your problem.
Make sure that you disconnect the power cable from your computer to prevent you from electrocuting yourself.

Horizontal line across screen, only when dragging over large areas with the cursor


Hello,

Have you tried updating DirectX?

You can also try scanning your computer with RadarSync (for free) to see which drivers are outdated. You can then install the updates by searching for them using Google. But, if you want to let RadarSync update them automatically then you can buy the license.

The display on my laptop is blurry and has some type of distortion making it difficult to see (especially photos and videos). I've tried multiple resolution settings and none seem to resolve the issue.


Are you sure the video adapter card is OK? A low-end video card may not
have the bandwith necessary to support high refresh rates at high
resolution. Just because the card will *generate* a given mode doesn't mean
that it will work well. Try the following steps.

1. Reduce the refresh rate to 60 Hz The monitor may seem to flicker a
little, but don't worry about it.

2. If there was no change, the problem is likely in the monitor

3. If that improved the resolution, then try removing any monitor extender
cables and play with higher refresh rates again. If that fixes the probem,
great, otherwise

3. Replace the videa adapter card with a better one.

Heat from monitor


The monitor,screen,adapter or display of a computer is the primary user interface. Monitor problems are some of the most common computer problems since the voltages inside a monitor can be as high as 10 KV. Many of the problems can be fixed yourself by simply changing the settings but in a few cases you may have to either replace or repair the monitor.
google_protectAndRun("ads_core.google_render_ad", google_handleError, google_render_ad); How to troubleshoot and fix computer monitor/display problems
1. The monitor/display flickers
Check the refresh rate. If the refresh rate is 50 Hz/ 60Hz (depending on which country you stay), it can be affected by interference from electrical power signals like those from fluorescent lamps . Increasing the refresh rate to 72Hz is recommended , since higher refresh rates reduce eyestrain and headaches
2. The display works fine initially, then after some time there are black lines on the screen and then the display disappears
There is a problem with the copper windings in the CRT monitor which are getting heated. It is better to replace the monitor
3. For a new monitor, you get a blank screen or distorted image.
Many monitors, especially LCD monitors, can only handle resolutions which are less than the native resolution, so set the resolution at the native resolution only. The native resolution of a LCD display is lower for smaller LCD screen sizes, typically 1024 X 768 for 15" LCD. CRT monitors have a better resolution than LCD displays
4. The display on the monitor is not steady
This is a result of power system interference from users of the power grid, particularly UPS, power tools and heavy machinery. Try changing the position of the monitor.

5. There is a shadow on the images on the display
Try reducing the contrast setting on your monitor.
6. Monitor becomes blank occasionally
Could be a problem with the display card, check with another monitor. The monitor display cord and power cable should be fixed properly and there should be no loose connection.
7. Dark Spots on the Screen.
Move speakers,USB modem and other magnetic devices away from the monitor.
8. Incorrect Colors - red may become dark brown, blue becomes purple.
Check your video cables and connectors for bent or broken pins and wires. Sometimes there may be a problem with your display card, which can be retuned using a software available with monitor technicians.
9. Run Antivirus to scan corrupt software files.Virus cause distorted characters and images.
10. Set your monitor/display pixels to the software requirements. some softwares require higher pixels to run or to be displayed. some media players, web applications, video games applications and photo editors/view softwares have option to view photos on low or high quality

Friend's Laptop Screen has become too dark to work with


You could have a defective screen - a defective inverter or a CCFL lamp.
To determine if you have a LCD screen or video card problem, read this and follow the instructions.

Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom:

  • Screen flashs on red/pink and off.
  • Picture stays on in red and slowly be come normal.
  • Picture flickering with dim display.
  • Picture flickering on and off.
All these symptoms indicate that the LCD backlight lamp (CCFL Lamp) has reached the end of the life and all you need to do is replacing the CCFL lamp

Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.

Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.
