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.

Compaq C700 laptop screen shows horizontal lines and the screen seems to be split into several sections


The LCD screen is faulty and will need to be replaced, go to www.ebay.com Type: make and model refine search to screen, first! hook a spare monitor to the video output usually on the back, if picture okay! the above mentioned needs to be changed, but! if both show the same symptom it is the video graphics card that is part of the motherboard.

Hey I got an IBM T42. It boots fine when its clear but after that it horizontal lines being to appear througout the scree.


Hi,

Either you can hook up an external monitor or access BIOS setup (Basic Input/Output System) to replicate if the horizontal line appears. This step will check if the problem is with the video card or the LCD.

If you get the horizontal line on the BIOS or never get it on the external monitor, then surely the LCD screen is beginning to fail. You need to reinsert and/or replace the LCD inverter or LCD itself.

However, if you see the horizontal lines on the external monitor but not on the BIOS, try to update the video driver. If this will not resolve the issue, you need to replace the video card or the motherboard of your laptop.

Hope this helps.

Horizontal lines on screen HPCQ509


Lines on the screen are usually caused by a hardware malfunction in either the lcd, lcd cable or the GPU.

Do the lines appear immediately after power up the computer? Or only when Windows starts?

Can you hook the laptop up to an external monitor to test?

How long have you owned this laptop?

Try reseating the LCD cable to the video card. If no change, then you will most likely need a replacement LCD (Roughly $150 on EBay)

Black screen with horizontal green lines


Hello yoyoxide.


from my experience can be something related with the video card. I recommend you the followig (Hardware diagnostics):

-Look for one of the discs that came with your computer, it should say (Drivers & utilities).
-Boot from the CD. If you don't know how to do it do the following:
1.Insert the Drivers&Utilities Disk.
2.Restart teh computer.
3. When you get the Dell logo, press F12
4.Select Boot from CD/CDRW-DVD (something like that).
-You will get a prompt to run the diagnosics.
-Just follow the wizard
-I recommend you to run diagnostics for everything.
-You will see if you have any problems with your hardware.

It seems that you have a pretty new laptop, so probably it's under warranty.
