Hello. The problem as you've told us, is most probably with the connector that links the LCD pannel to the main body of the laptop (on the motherboard). Because the joints are constantly moving there is some friction happening with this connector and in some cases it may get damaged or become loose from one end. You will need to have it examined in a service center. This isn't an expensive repair, in the worst case scenario you will need to have that connector replaced at most. Good luck in solving this problem and post any other question if you need further details. PS Sorry for my bad english, I live in a non english speaking country.

Have just hooked up my Viewsonic VA720 moniter as the main moniter to a new laptop that I have. The laptop is an ACER Travelmate 6293 running windows XP. When I come to start up my computer each morning...

You most likely have a capacitor that has changed value. When a capacitor goes bad it will work after it heats up. Sometimes a bad cap will have a bulging top or show signs of leakage. Sometimes can only be checked with a meter.

Laptop only displays image on 2/3 of lcd screen.

Try installing the latest video driver. Download it from the HP WEB site and make sure the video driver matches Windows XP or Vista that is installed on your laptop.

Gabriel175: Laptop now boots and video heatsink/fan now running but screen is "garbled" with horizonal lines. Will attempt re-connecting the screen cable.

To determine if the LCD is faulty or the video card, connect an external monitor to the video port on the laptop, power up the external monitor first then the laptop. The video data will divert to the external monitor automatically and if you get a normal Windows image the the video card is OK and the fault is the LCD screen or video cable.

This is very possibly a hardware problem, namely a crack in the motherboard. Sorry, no easy or cheap fix for it if that's the case.

Laptop screen

Have you tried hooking up an external moniter? If so do you have video on that moniter? If you do have video on the external moniter then you most likely have a bad inverter or a bad lcd panel.I would replace the inverter first because it's not very expensive.If that doesn't work then you can replace the lcd panelAnd if that doesn't work you have problems at the system board level.

Trouble with running a secondary monitor from my laptop

Hello tonyphats,

How are you trying to use the monitor? Just connecting it to the laptop? I know on most laptops you have to select to use the external monitor it won't just come up. You usually have to hold down the 'Fn' button and then press 'F5' or 'F7' to toggle between - monitor only, monitor and lcd, and lcd only.

If you are trying that, what happens? Does anything show on the screen?

Screen distorted

Hi its only a guess but it sounds like you might have the screen resolution turned up to high for the monitor to handle.. if you want to give it a try, try this.. Turn Machine off then turn PC on, and keep pressing F8 when u switch it on till the menu appears, Select SAFE MODE Once windows loads it will look a little different in safe mode. right click on the desktop and select properties go into display tab, and change the resolution to 800x600 and hit apply. Restart PC and see if it helps any... All the best & hope it works John
