We just turned the computer on and the monitor displayed nothing but the vertical lines. I don't know if it's VDO card problem or not and also want to know how I can fix it. Would appreciate if you can advise how to boost its performance. Thanks guy.

Re: VDO card problem?
I'm crossing my fingers:
i) sometimes the cable that connects to your Hard Disk(i.e., both data cable and power cable) may loosen....so i would suggest you to open the computer tower and reseat data cable, power cable present on Mother Board and Hard Disk ......
ii) u can alo try reaseating(removing and replacing it again) RAM (imp: place it properly....)
from my personal experience sometimes due to improper placing of RAM may lead to such vertical lines or may be due loosen contact of data cable or power cable.....
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Turn off the monitor and disconnect it from the back of the pc. This way you will isolate the monitor from the PC. Now turn on the monitor, if you still see the vertical line then that means the screen is bad and you would need a new monitor.
If the monitor doesn't have the vertical line then that means your video card is the issue or if you have an integrated vga port on the back of the computer then the motherboard is bad and would need to be replaced.
Turn the computer OFF and just turn the monitor ON if the vertical lines are still present then the issue is your monitor, but if there are no lines on the monitor alone turn the computer ON then go into the BIOS either keep on tapping del key once you turn the computer ON or keep on tapping f1 to get into thew BIOS screen.
If the vertical lines are present in the BIOS the issue is the Monitor but if not and the lines are present in windows the issue is your video card.
Replace the video card, if you don't have a video card and you use the built in video card on the system then the motherboard needs to be replaced.
1.)A loose connection between either the graphics card and the computer mainboard or between the Graphics Card and the Computer Monitor.
2.)Your LCD monitor has become faulty and either needs to be repaired by a technician or replaced.
3.)Your graphics card need to be cleaned, clean the gold finger contact on the card.
However in my experience I would say that the monitor has become faulty, try this monitor on another computer and if it still displays vertical lines then you know that this is the case.
If your monitor works on another computer then I would say that your computer or Graphics card is having some troubles.
Overheating plays an important role here.
if you have tried an external monitor to the laptop and it is still giving the same display then I think that there is something faulty with your vga or display card..Check the manufacturers website and it could be a driver issue but if not then it's time to get a new pc..unless you have the knowledge of going further..Please leave a voting for my help.Many thanks...
It could be a bad connection somewhere. Try checking:
-Where the video cable plugs into the PC. Remove and check for bent pins, corrosion and replace and firmly reconnect using the thumbscrews on the connector.
-Where the video cable plugs into the monitor. Some LCD monitors have removable cables some don?t; if yours does follow the same procedure outlined above.
-Could be a problem with an internal connection. A quick test and perhaps even fix would be to grasp the right and left sides of your display while it is on (displaying the offensive lines) and gently twist like you were wringing out a towel. Again, and I emphasize, gently using only a couple of ounces of force. Watch to see if the lines disappear, get worse of make the screen flash or change. If you do then its likely cause is the connector from the LCD panel to the electronics has oxidation or a loose connection. If you?re lucky the flexing might even fix your problem, if not you will have to take it apart to find out exactly what is going on.
If that doesn?t work then the next thing to try is connecting the display on another computer to see if it also displays the same lines. If the lines are still there then the problem is in your display and depending on its value and your finances you might consider taking it to a repair shop for an estimate. If the lines are gone take it back to the original PC to see if the lines reappear. If they do then I would suspect your video card or drivers as the likely candidate.

This is surelly a internal failure in the LCD monitor. one of these 2 problems occured. Both of them will however require some profesional service repairs (if they even are possible)
1. You may have a faulty connection between the main board of the display and the LCD pannel. Even if only one wire or one singe pin isn't connected properly the results are pretty spectacular (weird lines on the display, lack of image or weird patterns appearing and so on)
2. The video controller chipset on the mainboard (inside the monitor) is broken and needs to be replaced (however it is a small chance you will find a replacement).
I'm sorry if this isn't helpfull but the nature of the problem makes the diagnostic easy but the solving of this problem pretty hard.
