Dell XPS 15Z :: Display Screen Suddenly Turning To Noising With Vertical And Horizontal Scattered Color Lines
Feb 24, 2014
My Dell XPS 15z model laptop display screen is suddenly turning to noising with vertical and horizontal scattered color lines. This is happening every 15 to 30 min and when the mouse cursor is activating after automatically resuming the screen normally.
I have a dell Inspiron n5010 laptop and use it for personal works and photo editing as a photographer. when I watch a picture, in some specific zoom levels there are weird vertical and horizontal lines witch create many regular squares in the picture. it's not matter what software display it for me (it happens in every photo browsers I have and even in firefox) here you can see them (this picture is taken by Prntscr Button):
here you can see that little squares witch is annoying for me as a photographer! these squares goes away if i zoom in more! but some times squares are bigger like this: (same photo) as you can see it looks like some sort of distortion! and here you can see the same photo when it is displayed normally: my own guess is some sort of GPU problem!what I should do to get rid of these squares? some of my laptop specs are as follow: Dell Inspiron 15 (N5010) Laptop CPU: intel core i5 2.8
I have encountered vertical lines on the lower half of my screen and it is always there. When you reboot, it comes up right away. I read where someone else had the same problem and it would come and go at will..
I have a pavilion dv6, working perfectly till I closed the lid ( probably a bit too hard :/ ) and then when I opened the lid these vertical white, red and green lines are there. And a black stripe at the bottom of the display. Also horizontal grey bars covering the start button completely.
I own a HP dv5t-1000 LAPTOP which I bought around 3 months ago.It was running great, but now a problem in LCD screen has starts appearing.Its really hard to explain that why I have attached snaps to show what's really happening.
What happens that some time discontinuous horizontal lines appears on the lower or upper part or on the whole screen of the laptop.They become prominent when the LCD brightness is dim.
The screen become normal again when I move the laptop lid back or froth.
To double check my LCD I even tried using secondary display (A CRT monitor) and the picture appears to be fine on the monitor(I guess Graphic Card is working fine).
I am getting a white screen with some light blue horizontal lines. I've do a hard shut down and restart but same result. At one point I did see half of the normal start up screen but it faded away to white.
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?
I have a M17x R3 laptop since a few years. A few weeks ago I sent it to the shop to have a SSD installed and have Win7 reinstalled (Windows Explorer kept crashing all the time and I wasnt able to format for some reason). When it got back from the shop, I realized a problem that was not there before.
There are 2 horizontal lines, one at the top and one at the bottom of my screen that keep flickering. They dont appear when I'm on the desktop or playing games, only when I have a program running (iTunes, Steam, DivX, etc) in fullscreen.
Here are my specs
Alienware M17X R3 Windows 7 64 bit AMD Radeon HD 6870M (I also have Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000 in my display drivers. Just noticed that the version for both is 9.3.0) 6GB RAM
Dont know if it has anything to do with this, but when I got my laptop back I tried to install Cataclyst Control Center and it messed up my graphics bad, I could only run 640x480 and the only way to fix this was to uninstall CCC.
I have an hp compaq nx6330 (ex856av) using windows xp. last may, the screen turned black (i was told i need to replace the lcd), so i decided to use a generic external monitor. a couple of months ago, i had to have it repaired and the repair guy said he'll upgrade the OS to windows 7. things were working fine for about a month then the screen (external monitor, since the laptop screen is dead) starting having vertical gey lines (the entire screen). i played with the resolution and i was able to get rid ofthe lines a couple of times. are the lines due to using windows7? can this particular model handle any OS besides the one (windows xp) it came with?
I have these vertical lines in my screen that appear whenever the laptop screen is on. I have connected the laptop to an external monitor and the external monitor looks fine. I have taken a screenshot of my warranties from Dell if that will decipher whether or not the screen can be replaced.
I inadvertently upgraded to Windows 8.1 which I had been trying to avoid doing and don't know how it happened as I had continually knocked back prompts to upgrade. I originally did upgrade to 8.1 last year and had such major graphics issues I eventually restored factory settings to get back to Windows 8 which solved all the issues. Now the same problems are happening i.e. breaking up of the screen with loads of horizontal lines running across it.
I downloaded all the updated drivers I could from the Dell site but the graphics driver and video driver would not work and I kept getting the message that the laptop was not compatible with the downloads. It is a Dell Inspiron 3520 and the recommended drivers just will not install. I don't want to have to go through all the hassle of restoring factory settings again. I am sure the problem is with these 2 drivers mainly the NDJN4 video driver.
i have a Hp laptop and The problem is that i just turned on my computer few week ago a Yellow line vertically ran down my screen,i knew it was something bad but now i have 3 and its becoming a problem...
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.
I have a Dell E4300.A few days ago 2 vertical lines appeared on my screen, now there are around 10, different colors and sizes.When i press on the bottom of my display, where is the Dell logo, they disappear.I removed the display cover and, i think, the problem is the band in the middle, not the flex band connected to the motherboard.
Can the bottom of the display be changed? Is something like an inverter, but my screen is LED, so i belive that is a different mechanism. Is there any way to fix this without replacing the display?I checked with an external monitor, it works fine.
A number of weeks ago my laptop began to show vertical white lines on the screen, it has gradually gotten worse and now it is unusable. I have fallen outside warranty (couple of months). I have not dropped the machine, nor allowed any liquid near the machine.
As others with x230's have found, I have an issue with the screen fading/graying out then developing vertical lines over the entire screen. Pressing the screen bottom screen border resolves it for a split second then it occurs again, though resolves usually after pressing it at various points along the plastic lower edge maybe 3-6 times, sometimes with slight flickering of whites after.

I bought it on ebay so don't have any warranty information, unfortunately.It appears to be the LCD connector or cable.Is it possible to open it up and fix that somehow, or should I buy an IPS screen (the current screen isn't IPS I believe) and replace it myself?
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 [url]
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?
I've been travelling for the last 14 months and couldn't stand using my Asus EEE 901 as my only computer. So I got my beloved XPS M1330 send to me from sweden (where I'm from) a couple of weeks ago.
Everything worked fine when I got it, but quickly installed windows 7 on it (since win 7 wasn't released when I left home). I did however notice that the CPU usage was always between 10-40%, even when I didn't do anything. It became better when I installed windows 7 but was still unusually high. That didn't really do anything because it was such pleasure using a real computer after a year with a 8,9" netbook as only computer.
[PPROBLEM START] Approximately 1,5 week after I recived my computer, I was surfing the web as usual, when I suddenly noticed a spot in the middle of the screen. I tried to scroll to see if it was some dirt on the screen but it followed the scroll. A couple of second later the screen got colored horizontal lines and after another couple of seconds the screen looked like this:
I got completely terrified, and the happiness i had for my "new" computer quickly turned into a horror movie. I had to hold the power button to turn it off and after a couple of minutes I started it again. Bios loading looked fine but the screen froze at the Windows loading bars with some colored lines in the middle. Had to hold power to turn it off, and haven't dared to start it again since.
Is it my graphics card (8400 GS 128MB) that has died, or is it the motherboard which is causing the problem?
And are there any chances that I somehow can fix it? I bought my XPS M1330 the 28th of December 2007 (2 years and 4,5 months ago), is it still covered by any warranty? Because it is obviously not a user caused problem.
I have a fairly new y510p (about 2 months old), haswell processor intel HD4600 onboard and GT750M (non SLI model). When connecting latop to external monitor via VGA connection, I can see the image but it looks terrible, horizontal blue lines and flickering. I don't have any option to change the refresh rate, since Windows 8.1 identifies monitor as being 60mhz (other sources work fine on that frequency).
I've tried 2 different LCD monitors, 2 different VGA cables and get same result. Have latest drivers.
HDMI output works fine. Yet not uncommon for me to need to give a presentation at a place with older equipment where I must connect via VGA.
Before I call support to take laptop in... any one else has encountered this problem?
Is there a way for me to force the GT750M to be used for external output? I have tried setting in NVidia control panel (default NVidia to maximum performace and Intel is still being used for projection output).
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 .....
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
got a Dell XPS M1710 when i start the computer i get green vertical lines, but when i go into safe mode i dont see the green lines anymore but when i try to start windows normally i just get a black screen after the Microsoft screen, i have posted images below.
