Little Square color blotches


The most common reason for this is your video card overheating. You did not post the make & model of your computer, but if you have a separate video card installed check it for overheating. Pull the side panel off the computer to inspect. If your card has a cooling fan make sure it is still working (it may have failed) and not clogged with dust. If you have integrated video (the video "card" is part of the motherboard, not separate) check for dust & clogging in the vents. This is especially important if you have overclocked the GPU (video card processor) or the CPU, many gamers do this.
If you are still having problems, I hang out at www.suggest-a-fix.com, a free help forum. Post in there and we can go deeper. This forum is just not set up for in-depth communication.

Sounds like your monitor has croaked. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend or family member just to see if it works. If it works, your monitor is bad. If the borrowed monitor has the same issues then your Video Card in the computer is bad and needs to be replaced.

My laptop has lines and blotches on the screen. Can't tell if it's loading or not. Is it fried?


Try hooking your laptop up to a monitor from a desk top computer and see what happens. If you still see the lines, etc... you have a problem with your video display card/driver, if not, the laptop screen is bad or needs repair. You may be able to find a used laptop screen on ebay...
Good Luck.

You most likely have a bad connection inside the unit. Specifically, there are a couple of "backlights" that provide the light that will pass thru the LCD panel. If you can open up the unit, with the screen facing up, there should be a small PC board on the right. Check the connections on that board. Be careful as there is high voltage there.
Keep us posted.
