Question about ATI Mobility RADEON Graphic Card

2 Answers

Problem my monitor show many red, blue and green dotted vertical lines.. never had a problem like that until now since i changed my graphic card I have a Sony vaio vgn-a790 notebook. I have vertical lines in ms media player, reboot logo,Icons on the desk top, etc. The curser locks up, then the ATI setup pops up and resets the driver. 1. I updated the driver, reloaded the driver, rolled back to my old driver which was doing the same. 2. I adjusted the hardware acceleration, to disable all the cursor and advanced drawing accelerations. 3.Checked my power supply and fan tempeture Best buy could not fix it.

Screen went dark when I connected a digital external monitor, worked fine with an analog. external monitor is fine. primary is so dark it looks blank unless you look at an angle. ati had a brief web note stating connecting a digital monitor & screen going blank was a known problem without solution. tried everything except reformatting the hard drive. could this be mechanical or voltage problem? Changing graphic cards? I hate to toss a 1920x1200 17”

    I still have my sony, any specific knowledge of this graphics card, already tried drivers, reinstalling everything. evidently it's related to the card. One note in a sony forum that was removed said they changed the voltage setting to the screen. I followed his directions booting to the bios area if that's what it's called. Couldn't find a voltage setting. I can see everything on the screen but too dark to read. Connected any external monitor works fine? Any good laptop screen websites?

Blue vertical lines


Hi, I am sorry you are having issues with your graphics card.

Yes the oven trick does work but it is only temporary and you will have to do that process over and over until the card just all out quits responding. Once a GPU begins to display multicolored or blue lines across the monitor its time to put it out to pasture so to speak.

Dotted lines on laptop screen


This not good, hook a spare monitor to the video output usually on the back, if picture okay! the LCD panel on the laptop will need to be replaced. But if both show the same symptom the video graphics card is bad normally built into the motherboard.

The left side of my laptop screen wet all white with red green yellow blue lines running veretical lines running through it. looks like someone spilled paint on it


Hello,

Vertical lines are usually caused by 2 things, either your graphics card is going bad or your screen is going bad. How you check if it is your graphics card is by plugging it into an external monitor (if you have one).
If the lines still appear on the external monitor then you know its the graphics card going bad, which isn't probably worth fixing these days if you take into account how must laptop pricing has dropped.

I hope this helps.

Best of luck!!

I have vertical lines on screen I have changed the whole screen assembley but lines are still thers , exactly in same place


Hey There,

The reason this happens is because the graphics card is either loose burned out or jsut needs to be cleaned... to clean it use a pencil rubber in the gold tips that connect it, blow on the card to remove any dust build ups and reconnect the graphics card when done (make sure its clipped in properly).... different brands of computers will do different things such as the different coloured lines and screens flashing red. My dell latitude 630 had green and blue verticle lines. Just follow what i said and it should be fine

Hope this will help you in Resolving the issue with the vertical Lines on the screen.

Cheers!!!!!

Vertical lines on monitor I have a dell dimention 8300 computer with a 128MB DDR ATI Radeon 9800 pro graphics card. Yesterday when I turned on the computer, I had 5 sets of vertical lines on the flat panel...


by process of elimination, try unplugging your monitor from your computer. turn it on, the built in self test should run. it will give you color coded boxes like red green, blue etc.. and would tell you no signal. if you cant see any lines during the buit in self test, then is the video card thats busted...

Hope it helps!

Vertical lines in lcd


sounds like your graphic card is bad, try first to download updated drivers from the internet and see what happens, also try to connect an external monitor and see what happens.

Problem


So the screen just did this when you changed graphics card? That means there is either something wrong with your graphics card to which you changed, the resolution is set too high, it is not seated all the way, or you have it on the wrong connection. If it is a DVI port make sure your monitor is set to DVI (digital) connection. If it is a VGA port make sure your monitor is set to analog connection.
