There is probably a loose connection between the laptop screen and the laptop's graphics card. If all connections are good than the screen display is going bad on the laptop

Poweredge 6600 not showing display


If you have multiple video connections (onboard from motherboard, usually vertical or stand alone video card, usually horizontal) that you plug into the stand alone card, as the onboard is normally disabled when the expansion is installed. Verify the cable and monitor both work and that the monitor is on the correct input. Finally try another video card, if you have one available. Even if the drivers are not correct, etc, you should still see a boot screen.

On my screen I keep seeing red vertical stripes. How do I get rid of this?


Hi,

You can try to hook up an external monitor. If the vertical linea are visible on the external display, try to update your video card driver. If it is not showing in the external monitor, You are having an LCD problem.

If you don't have any external monitor, go to BIOS setup and check if the lines are visible, if yes, you're having an LCD/screen problem. You need to replace either the LCD cable, LCD inverter or LCD itself.

Hope this helps.

My Windows XP is connected to my Epson Powerlite S3, but the screen is blue with the words Source: Computer (Auto) No Signal on it. When I click "Help" on the projector, it takes me to a screen...


'No signal' and 'unsupported signal' messages mean 1 of 2 things, either the VGA output is off(laptop) or the display resolution is set too high(laptop and desktop). Assuming the VGA cable you are using is good, try this:


Desktop: hook the computer back up too your computer monitor & set the computer to the basic VGA resolution. For windows XP, right click a blank area on the desktop, click 'properties' on the dropdown menu, click settings. Write down the numbers in the 'screen resolution' and 'color quality' boxes!

Drag the 'screen resolution' all the way down to then 'less' side. Then change the 'color quality' to the lowest setting. Click apply, then answer yes (the display will look UGLY - don't worry!!) Now connect your computer back to your projector. If it works, then the resolution you use on your desktop monitor is not supported on your projector. Experiment with different resolutions to see which one looks best on your projector. You will need to change the settings each time you switch monitor to projector.


Laptop: by default the VGA connector on your laptop is off. To turn it on, look for a blue symbol on one of your function (F1, F2, F3...) keys. It looks like an old TV with a line on both sides 'O' (F4 on HP) Press & hold the blue button (on the lower left of the keyboard, usually to the left of control ) and tap the bleu button you just found. Let go & give you're a computer a few seconds to change over. If the laptop screen goes blank, you found the correct button! The display image should now be visible. Repeat this 1 to 2 times to change it back to laptop display.

If you did not see the display on the projector, 2 other issues are possible. First, verify that the VGA output on the laptop is working - connect the laptop to a regular computer monitor & change the display resolution to the lowest settings (see desktop above), then try it again on the projector. If you cannot get an image on a computer monitor, your laptop settings may need to be adjusted in the same dialogue box as the settings. Monitor #1 is the laptop display, Monitor #2 is the external output.
Happy viewing :)

My HP compaqnx9600 laptop screen display verticle lines, how can i remove them


Hi,

Here are some steps that you can try.

- Hook up an external monitor.
- If the line is visible on the external display, try to update your video card driver. But if updating the driver will not remove the vertical lines, you are certainly having problem with the video card of the laptop.
- If the line is not visible, then the problem is with the LCD of the unit. Either you have to replace or check the connections of the LCD inverter or LCD cable.
- However, if you don't have any external monitor, go to BIOS setup (by pressing F10, or whatever key is designed to access the BIOS on your laptop) and check if the line is visible, if yes, you're having an LCD/screen problem. Either you have to replace or check the connections of the LCD inverter or LCD cable.

Hope this helps.

Im getting horizontal lines that filling screen fully from top to the bottom


Press the Menu button on the Monitor, if the lines go over the monitor then its a Fault with the Monitor.
If the lines go under the menu then its something with the computer. e.g. graphics card. Try pressing F8 when you first turn the computer and go into Safe mode and see if you get the lines on the screen. If you do its a Hardware problem with the graphics card. If you don't its a software problem update the graphics driver.

Horizontal lines on ASUS laptop screen


HI friend

If you have External Monitor check by connecting it
if you get display on external monitor without line it means Display screen is Bad, if Line appears on external display as well then there is Motherboard problem Please contact Your nearest service centre for Service.

You are not alone with this problem. Some lines (like mine) run vertically rather than horizontally. The solution - sue HP. These screens have a known fault ie the Nvidia graphics chip is known to be the culprit. The company knows all about this issue but expect us to pay to put it right - sue them, you can do it online for around £35 (UK).

VERTICAL COLORED LINES ON MONITOR


Your panels are dying.
Well more to the point the driver tabs that run the panel are dying and are not going to be cheap to repair for either case.

For the stand alone LCD, it is cheaper to get another one.
For the laptop, find a laptop on Ebay or similar with a dead motherboard and swap out the screens, also gives you spare parts for the laptop. If you goto a repair shop and get a screen it will cost you as much as a new laptop.
