It sounds to me like the unit is ready for a replacement screen,There are chips along the edges of the screen and they may have been damaged thus creating black spots where there should be none.

If you can put up with the lines then it will still be usable,
You could use it with an external screen and the laptop will become a desk top with a external screen.

To replace the screen then you will have to source a panel insert from a reliable source,(or another laptop same model,2nd Hand)
when you order the replacement make sure the numbers on the back of the original screen are the same.
To find these numbers then you will have to strip down the unit to get all the info.

SELF INSTALL OF SCREEN.........

Remove the Battery FIRST.
You will need a small screw driver and a clear work space,
There are normally bungs or covers over the screws on the lid around the edge ,
To remove these and slide your finger nails down between the lid and the back of the lid,
this will separate the two covers both front and back.
there may be a cover on the keyboard side of the laptop,
Remove it too.Need to have access to the body,

The insert screen will be housed in a sub frame,
Comes with screws to hold on to the screen and the framebacking .
remove these screws and the unit will pop forward,
Unplug the lead for the LCD from the back of the insert screen.
Unplug the Inverter from the back of the screen too.

We have the replacement ready to go now....
Take replacement screen and connect to plug from back of screen,
Connect the inverter also.
Fix power and test,

If this starrts up straight away then the screen is working,
let your machine start up and run till you are happy,
Everything ok now,shut down and screw everything back together.

Test again,This should be the best FIXYA
Please rate me thanks ......

You don't have to drop your phone to crack / break the screen. This problem is almost certainly caused by a crack screen. This can be easily repaired by taking your phone to the local repair shop and getting the LCD replaced.

Depending on where you live and who you know you can get this done for $50 - $100 in North America.

Hi, possible causes for horizontal line on screen are,

Phone Screen problem and,
The flex of a phone.

When a screen displays horizontal lines on the screen, is when screen of the phone is getting damaged due to phone falling on the ground,or hitting phone on an object can cause horizontal line on a screen.
Solution to this problem is to replace the screen of the phone.



The flex of the phone can also cause horizontal lines on a screen. The flex is a thread like object inside the phone that makes the phone to function properly in terms of the display..

When the flex is getting damaged, it can cause such horizontal line on the screen display.

Solution for this problem,is to replace the flex.
Note : flex can be found only on slide phones.

What causes vertical lines on screen, some lines are thick and some are thin and appear over the task bar, they are across the entire screen.


They are static lines. They can be caused by a variety of reasons, damage to your monitor, damage to your vid card (perhaps it was got a little too hot?), ive seen this issue also with overclocked, try resetting to defaults if so. Also try reinstalling/updating your current display drivers. If you have an integreated video card it could be that your motherboard got hot and perhaps damaged it. If you have a spare vid card or something else you can hook up to try, and it still has the static lines, then it is your monitor for sure.

Horizontal lines on screen.


Your unit may have a loose connection from motherboard to the display (video cable inside the unit), another distinct possibility is that the video processor chip is damaged or there is a power supply problem for the video chip (a bad electrolytic cap or similar somewhere around the video IC).
You can check the connection, but you'll need to take the unit apart, also check other connectors, but if it's an IC problem, this could get difficult or/and costly.

Please note that these are only suggestions and that the problem may as well be something else.

Lines on my display screen too.


More than likely you will need to replace the LCD screen. When it got wet, it probably damaged the LCD screen. Usually it justs blows them completely out.

A new LCD screen runs about 15 dollars shipped from ebay2.gif.

The W580i LCD is extremely easy to replace. Probably one of the easiest I have ever done.

Check out the following link for instructions on replacing the 580i LCD display and links to buy the screen.

How to repair the screen of Advent 7092 Window XP version. Help Please!


This may not be damage, it could be the wrong driver.
Go to the control panel, look at the device menu to see if the display is possibly marked as not working correctly.
Then look at the display settings to see if new driver alternatives have appeared.

Incorrect drivers can damage a display; I've seen it happen (unfortunately).
