Dell :: Laptop Screen Not Plugged In Properlyred Lines / Screen Distorted

Jan 24, 2009

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

Nov 8, 2012

I have a screen problem on my Laptop, on start-up it shows a white screen with black lines (Picture below) only happens once every 5-10 start-ups. Only happens for 5-10 Secs & sorts itself out before it boots up.

Other time it happens is when I'm using the internet, the screen just sticks, but then when I move the screen, it stops.

Dell Alienware M17x R3 :: Thin Flickering Horizontal Lines In The Bottom And Top Of Laptop Screen

Dec 3, 2014

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.

Dell Inspiron 5423 :: Screen Distorted Almost On Every Boot Up

Dec 24, 2014

I have 5423 i3 and recently I started having a problem with which was that on almost every boot the screen would be distorted I.e vertical and horizontal lines would appear rainbow like distorted colours and although anything was barely visible I could make out that the screen ws divided into these four grids like appearance each acting like a separate unit by itself AND along with this the laptop would make 8 beeps on boot until window load screen would appear.

When this problem first started I solved it by holding the laptop screen at an angle then powering it on or sometimes pressing the power button and closing the lid and after I would hear win startup sound I would open it and it would work fine, but now since a day or two ive tried every method amd nothing works...

Lenovo X230 Series ThinkPad :: Screen Fading / Graying Out Then Developing Vertical Lines Over Entire Screen

Nov 30, 2014

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. Runngin at 60hz. URL...
 
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?

Dell :: Lines Through The Screen

Dec 26, 2008

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

Aug 22, 2009

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 :: Vertical Lines On Screen

Jan 16, 2009

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 :: XPS 170 Lines Started To Appear On The Screen

Dec 7, 2007

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
with GeForce 7800 GO GTX
WinXP

Dell :: Strange Lines And Characters Across My MX1210 Screen...

Apr 7, 2009

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 didnt 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 dont think the graphic card is irreplaceable on this particular notebook.

Dell :: Inspiron 1501... White Screen W/ Vertical Lines

Oct 29, 2007

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 Latitude E4300 :: Vertical Lines Appeared On Screen

Apr 22, 2013

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.

Sony :: Vaio Z Diagonal Lines On Screen

Jul 20, 2009

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

Dec 24, 2009

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.

Sony :: How To Make The Diagonal Lines On Vaio Z Screen

Nov 23, 2009

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?

Acer :: Aspire 9304 Vertical Lines On Screen

Nov 19, 2009

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
