Acer :: LCD Has Vertical Coloured Lines And Crap


2 days ago, I was using my Aspire 5720Z and when I opened it after closing it, half the screen was filled with weird coloured lines. I tried restarting it and even restoring it back to the factory default but that didn't help at all.

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?

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

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 :: 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 .....

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 :: 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.

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 :: 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.

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.

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?

and

2) Where can I find the disassembly, repair instructions for this computer on the Sony website?

Sony :: Vaio FW : Displaced Lcd Vertical Bleeding
I bought a FW.

On the right part of the screen there was absolutely no blacklight bleeding.
Now it's seems as an internal opening has hatched between the lcd and the bezel and light is passing by. It's like you could see behind the lcd.

When I'm in front of the computer you can barely see it, but being at a certain angle, you can clearly see the white light from top to bottom only interrupted half-way by a one inch dark spot, which I presume is the thing that keeps the lcd glued to the bezel.

My question, is it possible for the lcd screen to have been pushed backwards only on the right part of the lcd during transportation?

Dell :: Vertical Line LCD Replacement On 9300 With XPS BIOS
I have a 9300 that developed the single-pixel wide vertical line about a week ago. Dell has agreed to replace it but will only do so if I send the entire computer, minus the HDD and battery, to the depot.

The problem is that I installed a 7800GTX using the hacked XPS2 BIOS. The rep specifically stated that the depot checks the entire system "for issues". The hacked BIOS and officially unsupported video card would be very easy excuses for Dell to refuse to replace the panel, even though I did the swap 3 years ago and the system has been fine up until last week.

Dell :: Flickering Horizontal LCD Lines On M1530
Hi - I have an 8 month old M1530. Intermittantly I have experienced horizontal lines (multiple) that flicker.

It depends upon the angle that the screen is tilted backwards. Although I have found ways to "fix" it in the past (by opening the screen completely and then adjusting to the prefered angle),

I am now getting these lines at any angle greater than about 80 degrees. And, I can no longer fix it. Any ideas what this is? Can I fix it myself (loose cable) or do I need to call Dell.

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 :: About Storing Vertical
I am thinking about buying several laptop stands for my employees and was interested in a product called the Laptop Flip (see picture below). We need to raise our laptops for ventilation since they stay on all day.

In addition this stand holds laptops in the vertical position. I like the idea that we can save desktop space by storing our Dell's vertically but wondered is there are any issues with storing a laptop upright?

Dell :: M1710 LCD 30% Brigher Than The E1705/9400 LCD

Dell :: E6400 + E-Port Plus + Samsung LCD + LCD
just got my new E6400 and I am having a problem with dual external displays. My displays are:

Samsung 204B (20", 1600x1200)
Dell 1708FP (17", 1280x1024)

The problem is the samsung only works using an analog VGA cable. If I even plug in the DVI cable, the samsung will not detect any output from the laptop/dock. I have tried installing the samsing display drivers, but that did not fix the issue. This was not a problem on my old thinkpad T41 that this new dell replaced, so although possible, I doubt the monitor has suddenly developed a bad DVI port.

If I use the Dell as the primary with the samsung hooked up using both cables, I can see two instances of the samsung, it just won't display anything until I pull the DVI cable.

My E6400 has the NVidia NVS 160 card. Running Vista 64 with the 64-bit NVidia drivers from Dell.

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 :: 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.

As you can see the screen is completely white, its hard to tell by the picture but the edges off the screen are fading to black and there is lots of little lines running horizontally as well.

Now when i plug an external screen the picture comes up on the external and the computer works fine, just seems that the laptop screen is playing up for some reason.

Also when i turn the laptop off for an hour or so the screen suddenly comes back to life, sometimes for days and sometime for only a couple of hours.

Acer :: LCD Screen DEAD
so after about 6 months of not-so-abusive use of my notebook, the LCD screen sort of chickened out on me.. (Maybe me thinking to tear it apart sent it running lol)

What happened was, every so often before the day of failure, my screen would go gray in the bottom half and alright in the upper. Usually this would be fixed by applying very little torsion in the screen i.e. pushing on the left upper part of the screen and pulling on the right.

Not yesterday. When that happened and I made this move, it only became worse, lines started forming in the screen and then the screen went from white to black like paper burning..although moving it wouldn't make it stay that way. Now, I could only see about 1/3 of the upper part of the screen.

Now, I can't immediately claim the warranty of this thing, since it was my dad who bought it at Singapore, and the ITW says that the buyer must make a personal appearance with the necessary documents i.e. passport, reciepts etc. before the laptop could be repaired.

The first impression I got was perhaps the wire connecting the LCD to the mainboard needs to be reattached or something, but my local Acer service center suggests that it might as well be an LCD screen fault altogether.

Now, how would you know if it's your LCD screen and not just wires that went kaput? I was pretty convinced that it might just be the wire, since the method I used to do solved it, but now it doesn't budge...

ON HDMI, I try output to LCDTV only but it keep kicking me out too and screen keep flashing. Then I try clone it, it seems the screen stop flashing but the LCDTV screen was chop, plus the whole computer is lagging, like every 3s my mouse will stop then move again.
