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.

I have (suddenly) a single dotted black line about a quarter wasy down my screen on laptop. Can I get rid of it?


Hello,

First, you need to verify if the dot is cause by faulty graphics chip/card or LCD/LED. To do this use external monitor, if you cant see dot on your external monitor then you have faulty LCD/LED if you see dot like in your laptop the you have graphics chip/card problem.

I have a white dot on my lcd computer screen when the screen is black but with the screen on other colour the dot is not significant . I just wonder what the consequence of this dot is?


Hi.

Basically the white dot is a dead pixel, this is common with LCD screens. You have nothing much to worry about unless the screen develops more dead pixels which could lead to a screen replacement although its highly unlikely.



Regards.

Can you check the function buttons and make sure the primary display is set to show the output on the laptop. Try repairing your OS. If not then re-install the os. As you are saying till the time windows gets loaded, all works fine so it seems the issue isn't really the hardware.

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.

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.
