Vertical Lines on Acer Aspire 5100

Hi, i have the same problem as another person with an Acer that you helped. Except, the lines just appeared on my screen out of nowhere. There is a thin red line and a thin blue line right next to each other about 3 inches from the right side of my screen. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi, My acer laptop screen gets color vertical lines and cant see anything else. sometime it works fine but after some time it gets lines again


HI There,

The easiest way to troubleshoot your problem is to connect your laptop to an external monitor. If the lines on the laptop screen don't appear on the monitor, then you know you need to replace your screen and screen inverter.

If the lines appear on the external monitor as well, then your video card on the motherboard of the laptop is failing and you'll need a new motherboard or want to consider a new laptop, depending on the repair cost.

Regards,

Marcus

I use a acer aspire 5810TZ and have a vertical line runnng through my screen how do i fix this problem


Well, if this is the same problem I'm having with my 5810T, then the settings have nothing to do with the vertical lines. There are vertical lines on my acer because the framing of the screen isn't thick enough. Thus, the lines are caused by the lack of sturdiness. Changing settings does nothing. However, pushing on the frame on the bottom of the screen adds more vertical lines. Releasing gets rid of some of them. Tapping also helps, but the problem only gets worse with time.

HP Pavillion ZV5405 with Black/White vertical lines through screen


Will it boot from a CD/DVD? Make sure the boot sequence is set to boot CD first and then see if it will boot into setup from a CD/DVD. If it will, then maybe try reinstalling windows. Hope this helps.
