Connect any Desktop monitor to the Laptop and check whether the Display. if the display is fine on the Desktop monitor screen then it can be identified as the Laptop screen malfunctioning.
And if the Display has the same issue that on the Laptop screen
then it can be treated as the Display card issue.
However, it seems to be Harwre related issue. Get the laptop veriufied under Technical supervision to repair the Laptop's display card or the Laptop screen to be replaced if the display is fine on the Externally connectd Monitor.

Acer fell on floor flickering screen & lines across screen


It sounds like the screen broke when it fell. You'd need to get the screen repaired. Your best bet is to have someone else do it for you. Search for computer repair in your area. Sometimes places that repair broken cell phone screens can also repair laptop screens.

How do i expand my screen?


Either click on the GREEN dot in the upper left part of the screen or put your curser next to the edge of the screen until you see a DOUBLE ARROW. While holding down the left click button, drag the screen to the desired size.

The display on my L675 S7048 is flickering badly. My whites turn pink, and my blues turn green. I see it when windows starts, even the Microsoft logo has tiny green dots all around it. When I connect an...


WHITE is a mixture of the three "primary" colours.
If one of the colours is not working, then WHITE turns PINK.

So, either your LCD display is malfunctioning,
or the "data" cable between the LCD and the motherboard is malfunctioning (not transmitting all 3 signals),
or the video-card embedded into the motherboard is malfunctioning (not sending all 3 signals).

This is nothing that you can fix by yourself; take your computer to a qualified technician, for trouble-shooting and repair.

Flickering dots on Benq PB6200 projector.


it's not the lamp. if you've replaced the cords and still have the problem, reset the settings to factory default to make sure the resolution matches. if still not ok, there may be an issue with the main board.

Black dot on my screen about the size of an unsharpened pencil's point. My camera is Olympus 790. The dot id on the pictures when printed and the screen.


The solution you can try is to run a function of the camera called Pixel Mapping to see if this removes the dot as it will redistribute the pixels of the camera on the LCD screen. To access this function - have the camera in shooting mode - go to Menu - right arrow to setup and press Ok - down arrow to pixel mapping and right arrow over to highlight start and press ok. The camera will try to repair itself. If after running this the dot is still there then you may need to send the camera to Olympus for service as the image processing chip may need to be replaced. http://olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_servicerepair.asp

Hitachi Plasma EDTV has green dots flickering all over screen


that is called diffusion. that can be adjusted out in most cases by adjusting the y sustain pcb but can also be the main pcb, the logic pcb and panel itself but not likely.

Gateway laptop vertical dotted lines across the screen


Sounds like a problem with the LCD assembly or cable. You may want to reseat the LCD cable at the LCD end. It could be a loose internal connector in the LCD assembly.
