Acer :: Aspire 9304 Vertical Lines On Screen
I have had my Acer since new (about 2 years), not having any problems with it whatsoever, until recently, when it decided that upon displaying dark (black, grey etc) background it will intermittently flash white vertical lines across the screen.
Since it is out of warranty I have had it looked up by a repair company, which have said it was the screen connection cables that were at fault. That helped the problem for about a month, after which it reappered.
I have repeated the process then - the company replaced the connections, but this time it didn't help at all.
As this is happeneing randomly I am now asking, what could be the casue of such a fault,, if anyone has any idea. If there are any questions I will respond to the best of my knowledge.
I have made a short video that shows exactly what happens

Acer :: Aspire 8930G Pink Vertical Lines
last week i had 1 vertical pink line come on my screen and i dont know why because i hadnt dropped it or anything, but ever since i have been getting more and more of them until today when i turned it on and theres a big group of them.
I was wondering if i brought a new lcd for it would this fix this problem?
And also how easy are they to fit by yourself if you dont really know much about computers?
Dell :: Vertical Lines On Screen
I have 4 vertical lines almost equal distance apart on about 1/5 of the left of my screen on my Dell Inspiron 9300.
My assumption is the video card. I believe a soda got on it and that the previous owner tore it down and attempted to allow it to dry.
I have an old Dell Inspiron 8100 and wanted to ask if there was anyway that video card might fit the 9300? That would be a quick fix where it could be used immediately.
If not, I would really like to mod it out, but have absolutely no idea what I'm doing. Any ideas or proper parts to look into would be greatly appreciated. Add speed, get better video, etc. Can I purchase a different motherboard that would fit inside?
Dell :: Inspiron 1501... White Screen W/ Vertical Lines
it's running WinXP, AMD dual core, 1 gig ram, 120 gb hd...
seems to happen when i'm in any application. it'll kick me out and i'll have a white screen with blue or purple vertical lines. bought new in June of this year and it's been happening almost daily for the past 3 months.
2 days ago, i finally decided to reinstall windows XP. i did this and i still have the problem and it seems to have gotten worse. just today i got the error 4 times! and the last time i just got a solid blue screen. it's never happened this often before.
i called dell tech support. they seem to think it's bad ram so they're sending me new ram to try out. it's not the BSOD... it just mostly the white w/ stripes screen or, like the last time, a solid blue screen... no text.
Sony :: Green And Orange Vertical Lines Down Vaio VGN-CR220E Screen
I'm pretty sure that my LCD screen is shot, and unfortunately, the warranty on this notebook expired in october, so sending it to SONY for repair is completely out of the question (They want $500 when I paid $900 for this notebook, it's absolutely not worth it)
That leaves me with the option of replacing the screen on my own.
Ordering a screen through Sony Parts Direct would cost me around $250, while getting a cheap third party replacement off of ebay for around $75 dollars. I don't really care either way as long as the computer works for at least another year.
So my questions would be,
1) Has anyone ordered a replacement screen off of ebay before, and what was the quality like?
2) Where can I find the disassembly, repair instructions for this computer on the Sony website?
Acer :: Aspire 9304- Extra 1gb Of Ram
I've got an Aspire 9304, and it's just 1gb RAM.
I'm thinking of buying an extra 1gb of Ram from eBay that says they work on my model.
Is it easy to fit? I know it says on that eBay page that the 9304 will take this 1gb upgrade, but will it for sure?
Dell :: Vertical Lines? M1330
Well I read a lot of this, I think I have it now. My display going again to shutdown and appears the vertical lines of Apocalipsis!!!!
A video that I saw in you tube
YouTube - nvidia gpu failure dell xps m1330 graphics / video problems, vertical lines what's going on?
I have the same thing, still external monitor works.
The question is that I still have warranty? my dell warranty expires the past august so I dont have dell warranty. Still I read that GPU warranty is extended one more year.
Dell :: Studio 15 Vertical Lines
I bought a Dell Studio 15 last week. It arrived yesterday and the first thing I noticed when I turned it on was that there are tiny vertical lines all over the screen. They're not always visible, mainly just on brighter colours.
They're not colourful lines, they're almost transparent. It's definatly not the same lines caused by the overheating problem in the XPS series. These look a lot different .....
HP/Compaq :: Dv6 Faint Vertical Lines
I just bought a dv6-2190us and I love the laptop but the screen quality is horrible.
In white areas of the screen, instead of the display being pure white, it is grainy instead, with very faint vertical lines running up and down the screen, becoming more noticable as the viewing angle changes vertically. This drives me crazy as I work with text for a living and screen quality is critical to me.
The screen quality of $399 Compaq CQ60 is head and shoulders above this.
I've tried calibrating the screen, verifying that it's in native resolution, etc, etc to no avail.
I dont think the problem is isolated to my laptop because I checked some other dv6's at bestbuy and saw the same problem.
Dell :: M1330's VGA Out Producing Vertical Lines!
I have a year old babied XPS M1330 with Nvdia 8400GS videocard.
Its been sitting on a desk connected to 2 Dell 23'' (S2309W) screens for months. One connected via HDMI and other using VGA.

Dell :: Xps2 Wuxga Vertical Lines

Dell :: Small Series Of Vertical Lines
I have vertical lines on my m1330 but not the same kind that I keep finding in my searches.
My computer doesn't crash, it just has a few lines up and down the screen when I boot and they stay there.
A bit of history, the computer was dropped by the previous owner (one of my coworkers) and the screen was broken so I bought a replacement LCD for it and swapped it out.
Worked great for two weeks until I got the lines. Its still functional, the lines are just annoying and I'm worried about a burn in. I tried taking the screen apart again and checking my connections but the lines are still there

HP/Compaq :: Vertical Lines On My Presario V6000
I have a Presario V6000 and i love it, but just recently ive started to get vertical lines on my LCD. so far there are 4 groups, maybe 3-4 pixles wide that run the length of the monitor. I've priced out new monitors at around $100, but my concern is: is it the LCD going bad or is it the signal cable?
HP/Compaq :: Vertical Lines- Pavillion DV9000
My friend brought his laptop over and I'm trying to help him sort everything out. I think the problem might be due do a dying graphics card or bad memory.
Basically on the load up screen for Windows, there are groups of white dotted vertical lines spread evenly across the screen. This also happens when in CMOS. Everything seems fine on the desktop in safe mode, so I'm not sure whats wrong.
Here's an example... I used MS paint to make a picture to emulate the problem.
the lines go through the windows logo..
Dell :: Cold Shoulder From On NVidia/crash/vertical Lines
getting Dell to change its tune?
I bought a refurbished XPS 1330 in mid-2008 from the Dell Outlet and a few days ago started experiencing what so many others have.
I was told my a supervisor today that my machine shipped with a motherboard that was updated to address the NVidia issue, and the extended warranty wouldn't help me. I have a fried machine that's less than two years old, and Dell says I'm on my own.
From reading other posts here, it looks like this problem is deeper and more widespread than they're letting on now.
Acer :: Aspire 5942G Display (diagonal Lines Over Colors)
I experience the following display problem with Acer Aspire 5942G:
When certain colors are displayed on the laptop screen, thin diagonal lines ( like waves ) start moving all over the mentioned color ( see the attached photo and movie).
The effect is very annoying and well seen when You look from underneath the display. The exact color depends on the color calibration and the Acer Cine Boost Color Engine but always exist.
I attach a test pattern of 4 colors - they are light ones. Each color reacts as explained depending on color calibration : default MS Windows 7 calibration , default ATI video driver calibration, Acer CineBoost Color Engine On/Off.
It is not affected by hot/cold notebook, battery/normal power. It does not affect the external display.
Dell :: Laptop Screen Not Plugged In Properlyred Lines / Screen Distorted
when i first got this laptop i noticed that the screen was distorted and there was red lines everywhere and the screen was shaking abit. so i contacted dell and they sent me a repair guy to fix it. he fixed it in about 15min by pulling apart the laptop and replugging in the screen. but now its happening again. so i think the thing that plugs in is loose or somethin. so what do u think i should do out of the following options.
1. open it myself and replug it (im a noob and will try remember best what he did)
2. get techinician to come in again (bothersome as i have school)
3. ask dell for a replacement laptop.
im using m1530
Dell ::White Vertical Patch On Screen (E1705)
After a few years of good service, I noticed a white vertical patch about Ĺ" thick on my E1705 yesterday. It's always there whenever the screen is on.
I haven't connected the laptop to an external monitor yet to completely rule out graphics card issue, but it seems like a screen issue to me. Last year I had a graphics card issue (garbled screen) and Dell replaced it under warranty but it's out of warranty this time ......

Dell :: E6400 LED Screen With Vertical Linesis It Normal
Just got my E6400 with the LED WXGA+ (1440X900) screen. My first reaction is what a hell! I got these lines on the screen, its almost as its only displaying every second line or something.
Maybe its the display drivers.. so i start testing different drivers but no luck, it wont change. See below for example:
Should it be like this? Do I miss the right drivers? My monitory sais General PnP, not any specific.. I'm using windows 7 x64. If its hard to see the vertical lines let me know and i'll try to get better pics.
Dell :: Lines Through The Screen
I have a Dell Inspirion E1705 and when I woke up this morning it seems as though computer had frozen, but the seemed to be white lines down the screen.
I rebooted the computer and even on the BIOS screen there were lines, and Vista would not boot. I tried running the system diagnostics and it had passed every test (I ran the extended tests), and the lines seems to had gone away after reboot.
When I got to the Windows log-on screen there were still some lines, but once I logged in, the lines had gone away...or so it seemed. After about 30 min of surfing the internet, the screen froze and lines went through the screen once again.
I believe my graphics card, nVidia 7900 Go GS, has gone bad, but I can't talk to anyone at Dell because my warrenty has exspired.
I'm hoping I'm wrong about my graphics card failing, and maybe is has something to do with corrupt bios, but I'm not sure.
Dell :: Lines On Screen
I notice like 6-7 short lines on my screen (mostly concentrated on the left side of screen)...looks like something you would see if you took you finger nail and and went down on an lcd screen (technicolor line).
If i take my finger and lightly touch the line, it goes away, but it reappears every time i boot the computer! Should I ask for a screen replacement?
Dell :: 7950- Screen Breaks Up Into A Bunch Of Vertical Tears
I have a 1710 thats a couple weeks old and I have a problem. As of right whenever I install drivers other than the dell drivers for my 7950GTX and am running on battery the screen breaks up into a bunch of vertical tears. So far I have used both the Laptop Video 2 Go drivers with the tweaked INF and Geforce Tony's recommended drivers and as soon as I unplug the power I get this problem. But like I said, if I uninstall those drivers and load the current drivers from Dell.com everything works great.
Dell :: 1 Pixel Wide Vertical Colored Screen Defect, Who Else Has It?
Did anyone receive their Studio XPS 13 or 16 with any defects? I received my xps 16 with a screen defect (1080p 1900 x 1080 RGB LED screen) of 1 pixel wide vertical yellow line. Dell is arranging to pick it up and repair it. I am not happy about that as I expect to receive a functional machine.
I did some search and it seems this yellow (or other colour) vertical line issue with Dell laptop screen has been an ongoing issue from 2006 (or earlier than that)...
Dell :: XPS 170 Lines Started To Appear On The Screen
I came home and these weird lines started to appear on the screen. They don't always appear and they're not vertical. The screen is fine when first boot up, but they start appearing after I run some programs. Sometimes the OS would stop responding altogether.
It's not a virus.
Tried reinstall OS, but the setup halts at the very beginning, which I assume is when it scans for hardwares.
So I'm fairly convinced that it's a hardware issue, and the diagnostic says one of the registers on my video card is bad. (Actually the diagnostic test ran without any problem until it tested one of the video modes, so it appears that the card is fine in some video modes like tiled mode).
Does anyone have any way for me to be exactly sure that it is the video card's fault? It costs 400 bucks on Ebay, so I want to be sure. (There could be a slight chance that it's the MB's fault?)
If it is the video card's fault, what are my replacement options? I don't really mind the performance, since I have bought a new desktop. So any video card that can render a few polygons on screen would work for me.
The system in question:
Dell XPS M170

Sony :: Vaio Z Diagonal Lines On Screen
I have a Vaio Z with the 1600 by 900 screen, since having it repaired (the bottom case replaced) I have noticed Diagonal lines from the top left to bottom right.
I have had it in with Vaio Link, but they say they can see nothing wrong with it and sent it back
The lines/banding show in the Bios so it is not software related.
Does any else's screens look like this? I have compared it with another model in the Sony Shop and that one didn't seem to have the issue.
1: Diagonal lines from top left to bottom right in the lighter colours, this is in MS paint.
2: BBC web site, the Diagonal lines are clearly seen in the BBC blue.
3: Sony Vaio Bios, is clear in the light blue and lightly in the white area.
HP/Compaq :: HP DV5t HD Video- Lines On Screen
I have an HP DV5t purchased last September/October.
The computer seems to have a weird problem when watching HD videos from places like YouTube or Hulu. I will get horizontal lines near the middle height of the screen. They are not pixels changing colors or going dark, it is almost as if the image is jumping around or as if it is processing/updating the video or something. (It's really hard to explain - it looks like the video is slightly off, just a series of horizontal lines that are jumping around.)
I've never noticed this until somewhat recently. Is this just a case of horizontal refresh lines and the video being too high-quality? Or does it sound like something more problematic.
Dell :: Strange Lines And Characters Across My MX1210 Screen...
My dell mx1210 has been giving me these strange vertical lines on my screen with different characters on the text as well whenever I boot up.
I suspect a graphic card driver issue b/c it usually happens only after I install the Geforce go 7400 drivers. I had already tried the latest drivers but those didnít help either.
Every now and then, even if I had uninstalled the drivers it still shows upon start up or I get blank screens later when on desktop. Is anyone familiar with this type of problem on their laptop? Unfortunately, I donít think the graphic card is irreplaceable on this particular notebook.
Sony :: How To Make The Diagonal Lines On Vaio Z Screen
I must admit that there are the diagonal lines that appear on the vaio Z when the laptop moves or just for no reason. It's very fine, but obviously there has been alot of discussion about it. Every Z (or 95%) of them I have viewed (about 10) have this issue and I can truly see it. I saw it before I read these forums and was like "what is this?" Well, how can I make this phenomenon not bother me, b/c it seems like it's not constantly being brought up in these forums anymore.
I feel it detracts from my enjoyment such that I want to sell the Z which I just got. Is there a way to unlearn what I've already seen? I guess do you really stop noticing it after time?
Dell :: Strange Lines And Characters Across My Inspiron E1705 Screen
My dell Inspiron E1705 has been giving me these strange horizontal / angular lines and dots on my screen with different characters on the text as well whenever I boot up.
Have installed latest nvidia drivers too. I actually reformatted the system and installed all the drivers. For a week system worked fine and then started showing the display abnormality.
Again re-installed the OS after re-formatting. When the display gets impacted even portion of the screen appears in different color. This is not limited to any one part of the screen .....
Acer :: 6930G Purple Lines On The Monitor
purple lines have started appearing on the monitor as any person who uses a laptop and constantly see a flicker of numerous purple horizontal lines would get annoyed so i
decided to open it up and check the connectors which a friend had recommended me to have a look at though im no technician but i noticed it had a triangular shaped screw i couldnt open because of that so at the moment im clueless what these screws are called?
Acer :: Aspire 4315 Screen
When I turn on my laptop ,ocassionaly, the screen turns white. At first i thought it was a driver issue because it would only happen when windows loaded. But now it does it when i turn it on before windows starts loading, leading me to believe that this is a hardware issue. does anyone know what i should replace in the laptop inorder to fix this problem?
Acer :: Aspire 3610 Screen
i've got an Acer Aspire 3613WLMi and the screen is faulty.
when i switch the laptop on the screen comes on full white and then fades slowly to the bios screen (no hdd installed right now). I put a windows vista installation cd in to test it further and it faded slowly to the installation screen, everything moved in slow motion, the mouse cursor moved across the screen really slowly and leaves a trail. I've replaced the ribbon cable and that hasn't fixed it, it's not a motherboard fault that i know of because i've plugged an external monitor in and that worked so i've narrowed it down to either being a fault with the lcd or with the inverter.
i'll try to get a video of what i'm trying the explain, it's difficult, the screen sort of fades into view in blotches and patches all over.
Acer :: Aspire 6930G Screen Flicker
I've been plagued with this problem for the past month and a half at least, so much so that the laptop has spent the last 3 weeks with Acer and their technical support team in Plymouth (I only got it back last week).
The laptop was sent off with a fault to the screen. It intermittently flickers, mainly when the screen is moved, but sometimes not. The laptop was sent off to Acer 3-4 weeks ago and was returned last week. A report was returned with the laptop and reads as follows:
SYSTEM FUNCTION - SYSTEM FAIL TO FLASH BIOS
STORAGE - OPTICAL DEVICE WILL NOT READ/WRITE
fitted new ODD and middle cover
Spare Part(s) Replaced:
ODD HLDS SUPERMULTI DRIVE 12.7
As you can imagine, this report left me completely perplexed but I assumed that somewhere within that they had fixed the screen problem and left me with a fully functional laptop again. And of course I'd been without it for 3 weeks and just wanted to turn it on again!! lol (On a sidenote, I had asked them to check the disk drive also, because back when I first got it, it struggled to read any type of disk. This explains the apparent replacement disk drive)................
Acer :: Aspire 8930G - Just Get A Black Screen And Nothing Else
My problem is that when i start up my Laptop (its about a week old) i just get a black screen and nothing else. The only way of solving this problem is to take out the power lead and the battery and start it up again. I dont want to have to do this everytime i start up my laptop.
This first happened after my laptop crashed (Frozen screen bussing through speakers) there was a lot running at the time, virus updates, windows updates etc.

Acer :: Dull Screen Aspire 5630
When I use to plug my laptop into the mains you could see the screen got a lot brighter as though it was a power surge. For some reason that no longer happens the display is quite dull and tough to read unless in a dark room!
There was a distinct difference to screen brightness between 'High performance' and 'Power saver' mode. This is no longer the case and the laptop seems stuck in power saver brightness!
