Acer LCD fault

I have an acer aspire 1800 and the screen has 2 large black bands (vertical) and some bands were the image is incorect and faded. I assume I need a replacement screen. Does anyone know whats happening? I keep reading about inverters etc. Just want to make sure its the LCD at fault before I buy a replacement. The display shows fine through an external monitor so I dont think its the graphics card. Any help would be appreciated.

    The screen is at fault immediately you switch it on so it cant be a driver problem and the backlight still works on the rest of the screen. The display shows fine through an external monitor so I dont think its the graphics card.

Hi lepter, late with this report, but you may have a vertical issue, if this is not the case, check your menu setting for wide screen feature settings, if there is none, immediately change your LCD.

According to your issue. It is definitely the issue from your LCD. Any issue from converter will cause the display flickering or given faulty color and resoulution. But here your LCD is still displayed as normal with some horizontal or vertical lines. Those signals showed that LCD is in poor condition and replace it will solve those issues. I am positive that LCD is at fault.

You are correct about the inverter, on laptops about 9 out of 10 issues with video may be caused by the inverter, however before you replace the inverter try checking for new driver updates for your video, if this fails you may try hooking up an externail monitor and see if that works ok, if it does then i would try to have the inverter replaced.
