Preferred Solution: I m facing issue with my Laptop screen

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I am from India. Purchased a Lumia 730 recently (2 weeks back). The next day I updated the device and from that day the screen flickers. Went to the Nokia Care Centre but they were unable to ascertain the issue. In one blog, wp8 lvr had commented it might be an issue with the OS. Is it so? I am worried.

Answer:I am facing screen flickering issue in my 2 weeks old Lumia 730. What might be the issue?

Lumia 730 still has a very early build of an os that is yet to be distributed to many other models. So chill, wait till. an OS update is released. If still nothing happens, you can get your phone replaced :)

Hello TSF!
I am in dire need of assistance i have tried nearly everything with my system. It is a Fujitsu Esprimo E900 o-WATT, at first it failed to get past the Windows logo splash screen, but a quick run of the Windows DVD start repair fixed that. Then it aquired the same problem Again, not getting past the Windows logo splash screen. To fix it this time i had to replace the registry hives with their backups, and Again it worked. Now it has crashed a third time, this time however, it won't even boot the Windows boot-manager it just hangs with a blinking cursor in the top left corner, so naturally i figured i could run a startup repair but even this seperate Windows live cd wont help either it just freezes upon selecting repair tools. I have run a memtest and used WD Lifeguard smart and extended, both pass with flying colors. Using HBCD i am able too boot mini xp where i can easily acces the filesystem, is it the mbr, but how would i go about fixing it without bootsect? i am not familiar with the utilities included in hbcd. That was quite a rambling, please let me know of any further information you require.

Your assistance is much appreciated!
Also a format, reinstall is not an option, as the pc contains a bunch of my dads Work programs which i do not have acces too.?

Answer:Am I facing a hard- or software issue?

If you can get to "Repair Your Computer" usually by tapping F8 continuously after pressing power button until you see a list of options then choose the cmd prompt and run chkdsk /r from that.

I'm using Dell Inspiron laptop 500 series, the adapter shows green light when plugged in but the keyboard blue light in not showing. When plugged in a warning message is indicated charger plugged in but adapted unknown, and on the screen its showing charger plugged in, not charging. The adapter is 45w .

Answer:Facing issue with the charger pin ( connector tip)

Unless the adapter is correctly identified by the system, the battery will not charge.
First try a new OEM Dell AC adapter - -if that doesn't show up as recognized, replace the DC power jack next.  And if that doesn't get the adapter recognized, replace the mainboard.

Hello everyone.
Unfortunately I have had to sign up today due to a problem that will be much appreciated if solved. I am currently running Windows 7 on a Toshiba Satellite. Although I don't actually know if I am posting this under the right thread.

Today I was suddenly faced with unusually slow boot up and once started, everything became slow and refused to load, and when pressing ctrl alt del, I was faced with a black screen and no cursor to which I had to force a shut down. When starting again, the boot up was slow and skipped to the welcome screen before I even entered my password and became stuck.

After booting again, same issue as at first. Then started in safe mode without networking and ran Malwarebytes which came up clean. I am rather illiterate with computers and so am in a pickle here. Advice would be appreciated.

Many thanks, Tess.

Answer:Boot up issue facing a computer illiterate human.

Reboot or turn on the machine. As soon as you see your machine's name logo splash screen keep tapping F8. Go to "Advanced Options" or "Repair Computer" Select your language then "Repair Your Computer" An installation of Windows should be detected after that select "Next"

If that does not fix the issue. Do the same as before go to Next again go to command prompt type in

My laptop was lying on a table beside a window with its screen closed in switched off condition without the adaptor plugged in when it got wet in rain water. When I saw it, I found that water had filled the openings in the keyboard, the openings around the mouse buttons and the opening around the strip of LED indicators. Surprisingly, the power indicator was flashing dim white/ green.

I acted very foolishly immediately. I held the power button on for sometime with the motive of switching off the indicator but in vain. I did this 2-3 times and all the time, the laptop started and I switched it off immediately with the power button. I then dried the visible water with a fan without turning the laptop upside down. After drying for around 2 hours, I switched the computer on and tested it. The computer booted up, Intel RST Service was not running, all keys except the F8 key and the touchpad on/off button were working. I heard beeps sometime and I think the laptop was becoming hot quickly. The power indicator was yellow. I tried charging the battery and it got charged to 100%. However, the battery indicator didn't change from orange to green after getting fully charged. I switched the computer on and off several times with only battery, only AC power and in combined mode. All the time, the power indicator was fluctuating between yellow and green when laptop was on. However, the light became dim yellow when the laptop was switched off and I had to remov... Read more

It all started when i using net half way my screen freeze with lots of altered colors.
 
I have tried to oning laptop series r400 and it loads till windows screen and then it goes blank screen after that.
 
I am certain that the latop is still running and everything is fine just that there is no display output.
 
I have tried to enter the bios setup and changed the output from discrete to integrated output and also disabling the auto selection for display output (third option) and i found that it works so i probably guess problem could be with discrete display output.
 
However, i am not 100% certain that it is the main problem for this blank screen. Is there anyway i can verify this problem or best find the solution to it. Reply me thank you

Answer:I am facing Media missing Error in my Dell Laptop (Windows 10)

Please list Dell model number. Example: Dell Inspiron 3543
In the meantime, I'd suggest powering off the system, disconnect AC adapter and all peripherals. Remove battery, press "Power On" button for 15seconds, and then release. Replace battery, adapter, and then power on the system. Hopefully, your system starts normally.

Hello, So I have a user that just recently started to have an issue.  The laptop is fine (beyond the sound issues with the X230 which aren't solved (sound issue)), but if the user puts the laptop in the docking station with the laptop lid/screen closed/down, the external monitor only displays the desktop background but no login screen or desktop icons. This user has Windows 7 Pro. on it, I just installed the latest video driver from Lenovo's site and that didn't help.  I made sure the screens were set to clone and not extended displays. When the user flips up the laptop screen/lid, both screens are cloned and all is fine.  Supposedly this just started to happen a few days ago. But if the user has the laptop turned off, puts it in the docking station, closes the lid and turns the laptop on, the external monitor works just fine. I've changed clone to extended desktop just to see if that would help any but it didn't.  Set her back to cloned displays. Only other thing I can think of doing is to make sure the external monitor's resolution is set right but...don't understand what's going on.... Thoughts?

Answer:x230 (2320) laptop issue with external monitor when laptop lid/screen is up

Hi, cftech
 
My first recommendation would be to make sure that the BIOS and chipset drivers are the latest version. Since the external monitor works, just only certain circumstances, this is most likely a software issue of some sort. The BIOS can be found here and the chipset here.
 
Also, if possible, could you have the user try to connect to the external monitor without the docking station? I'm just curious if the docking station could have something to do with the issue,
 
Best of luck, and let me know how it goes
Adam

Have Dell Latitude D400 Laptop which is several years old. For many months, had minor problem where LCD screen would have partial garbled horizontal lines, but when I shifted the screen angle -- moved screen on hinges -- back and forth slightly, then screen would be fine. But recently, the bottom 70% of the screen has turned to olive green mush with a few other vertical lines, where as the top 30% of the screen is fine. When I connect external monitor to rear jack, I am able to see all the graphics there and the hardware and software otherwise performing. When run built-in diagnostics, get graphics error with no external monitor, but all tests just fine when ext monitor connected. Conclusion from on line chat with Dell Tech was LCD Screen problem and referred me to the toll free SALES phone number -- meaning just purchase another one.

How do I know if the problem is the LCD screen being shot, or possibly just needing to clean or repair the connection through the hinges from the CPU/graphics card to the screen itself? If the latter, who should I seek to do such a repair or can I get guidance to open the unit and try myself as I am technically comfortable doing so with instruction? And given the cost of new laptops today, if I need to go outside for repairs, where should I look and up to what cost do you think is worth it, vs just abandon and purchase a new one.
 

Answer:Laptop LCD screen or screen connection issue

Could be a bad connection or the LCD might be shot. I would take it apart and at least poke around if it is no longer under warranty. Dell has some pretty good service manuals on their site. I think yours is here: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/latd400/en/index.htm#online_documentation

If you don't find anything obvious wrong with it, you can most likely get a screen off FleaBay for a few bucks and try it out.

Or just get some huge hinges and mod a 50" plasma screen on it...

Good luck!

There is no way to fix it the issue is whether it is serious enough to require that HP replace the screen. There is a "pixel policy" that governs the terms of the warranty. You need to contact HP Warranty Support to see if you can get a new screen.

Hi. I've had this laptop, a Dell Inspirion 1200, for a few weeks now. I usually either close the cover or put it into Hibernation when I'm done using it. I haven't jarred it, shocked it, or stepped on it.

Basically, I opened up the cover and hit power. While it was booting up, I looked away to do something, and when I looked back, the screen was covered in white vertical lines. I shut down the computer by holding down the power button, then rebooted. When it came up again, it was perfectly fine (no lines at all.)

Is this a fluke or something I should worry about in the future?

About 2 weeks ago, a pink line appeared on my laptop screen. It is a straight line running down the length of the screen on the left side. A couple of days ago another line appeared, this time yellow. I am fairly certain that this is a hardware issue (driver re-install and system rebuild have not helped). I contacted HP who told me my 15month old laptop is out of warranty and will cost 250 to repair.Do I have any other options?ThanksTony Webber

Answer:HP Laptop screen issue

Not really it is a hardware issue rather than software I suspect. You could try ebay to get yourself a new screen cheaper and install it yourself. Usually screens are about 50 - 150 depending on the one you need. However some home insurance may cover you for the costs but remember the rise in the premium before you do claim.

Hello,

For the past few days sometimes when I open my laptop I get a grey screen with horizontal streaks (sometimes black with horizontal streaks) running across the screen. If I close the screen and re-open it eventually it will go back to normal. I've also had the screen freeze a few times for a few seconds while I'm using it.

I've hooked it up to my TV when it had the grey screen and it was working fine so I'm pretty sure it's the laptop screen. This doesn't happen all the time so if the solution is get a new screen I'll just live with it, but perhaps something simpler?
 

Answer:Laptop screen issue

My first guess would be the video card or driver but if you hook it to an external monitor and it is OK then it does point to the Laptop screen. Sometimes the ribbon cable from the Motherboard to the monitor can get loose or damaged. Not saying that is what it is tho.

What happens, beginning from startup, is that the laptop screen works completely normal, shows the usual lenovo loading screen, then once it reaches the point where is is supposed to show the desktop background(where you sign in.) It changes to a dim black. My external screen is black as well as though it was extending the screen. I can click, then sign in, and access all of my files after I change the setting to second screen only, but I would like to be able to use the laptop screen as well. If anybody could help that would be great.

I've had a HP dv6 laptop for close to a year now and have had zero issues up until the last week. I've noticed when watching videos in fullscreen for even a short period of time the contrast for the screen goes right up up when the video is exited, basically if I watch something and then minimise it whatever is behind it is almost unreadable, such as the standard chrome bar up top looks almost one solid, bright colour, after 5 to 10 seconds its back to how it should look.
It's also a LED display
Anybody have a similar situation or know what the problem could be?

Depending on what program you use for watching videos it may just be bugging up, but also it may be that the program is infected in some way. Have you tried a virus scan?

Peering at the screen, you can tell it's displaying. Sadly, it's only bright enough to see for a brief moment.

I'm running into the D-Sub on the TV and have the CRT/LCD setting to display on both the laptop monitor and the TV. TV is a clear picture and the laptop I'm guessing from reading I've been doing is lacking the backlight.

History: No updates have been done in the timeframe that the monitor issues surfaced. No drivers changed, no programs installed (except vaguely possibly ExamDiff and one or two portable apps (http://portableapps.com/).

A week or two ago, I noticed the screen seemed to be shadowed in one area but the shadow seemed to go away if you brightened the screen all the way. Also, the screen seemed to be flickering, like lightbulbs sometimes do before blowing, that really quick, irritating flickering. This didn't usually last long, maybe 30 seconds at the most and it would settle down, ditto the shadowing.

Now, if I switch between CRT/LCD options or press then release the little screen switch near the hinge (the one that turns off the monitor if you close the lid), I tend to get a very quick proper display on the laptop monitor before it goes dark again with the displayed information impossible to read.

The issue is the same through a hibernate and resume, brief flashes of a clear screen and then only the vague outline can be seen.

I have tried plugging in an external screen, but it does not receive a signal from the laptop, nor will the external keyboard I have to use (laptop keyboard is broken, not important).

Is there any way I can get the laptop to work again without taking it to a repair shop, or does a certain part need to be replaced?

It could be one of several issues and from the sounds of it, would require a part replacement. Possibly the video card, but my best guess would be motherboard failure. I really wouldn't be able to tell for sure without further testing.

Hey all, I'm having a dilemma.

TLDR: my new Acer Aspire E 15 laptop has a messed up screen, should I get a refund and either finance a MacBook or find a used MacBook, or try to repair the Acer?

In mid march I bought a new laptop - an Acer Aspire E 15 from Amazon. A couple weeks ago I opened it and there was a big black spot on the screen with white lines coming from it. The laptop hadn't been dropped or even moved, I don't know what caused it. But reviews on amazon said other people had the same problem a month or two after buying the laptop.

I contacted amazon and they said I can return it for a refund. I contacted the seller and they said I could send it to them for repair. However, I use my laptop for work and couldn't go that long without it for them to fix it. When I contacted Acer about the warranty, they said that since the black spot is "finger shaped" (??) it's not covered under warranty. But it is so large that it's a real problem when trying to work, or even just generally use it.

So now I have to decide whether to get it repaired or get a refund and buy a new laptop. I'm leaning toward the latter. I really want a MacBook and was approved for financing from Apple.
However, my friend made the point that computers are kind of like cars in that they depreciate in value after you buy them. So is it really worth getting a new MacBook and financing it? Or should I look into getting a used one for cheaper? If I get a us... Read more

I know that seems ridiculous for me to just now be bringing it up but I honestly dont use it that often and only for pleasure so I always put it off and forgot about it.

The screen basically flickers blue in certain spots. Corners of windows, icons, links, etc. Its almost as if it was highlighted... I am not sure what it is. Sometimes it randomly goes away but then comes back within a few days.

If i do a screen grab of the blue flickering it doesnt appear in the jpg. So i took a picture with my cell phone. I uploaded that pic as well as my system specs to this thread.

Hello, so I have this problem with my laptop screen, My laptop is a Dell XPS 15 and not even a month old. While I was reading an article online, I thought I heard a ding sound like what it makes when it asks me for administrative permission for a program to open or do certain functions and then the right upper corner and part of the right side of my screen dimmed. As if there is a shadow over it. When my laptop asks for administrative permission it generally does dim everything but the dialogue box that opens up but never have I ever seen it dim only a section of the screen and a window never opened asking me for permission for anything.

I tried resetting my computer and it changed nothing, I also tried changing my screen's brightness and the dimmed section does get brighter with the rest of my screen but it still stays a few shades darker than the rest of the screen. I do have a warranty that would cover any repairs and fixing that needs to be done but I am hoping it is something that can be easily fixed by myself because sending it in to be looked at, repaired and then returned could take a while and I obviously don't want to waste the time if somebody knows an easy fix to this.

Just as the title states, my new bought laptop is extremely weird. I am currently having 2 issues, and yes I've searched already(even though its hard to search when this is so confusing)
1. Whenever sound is played on the laptop, WITH and WITHOUT HEADPHONES/MIC plugged in, the left side laptop speaker lets out a static sound for a while, and if a sound on the laptop ends, it ends after like 3-5 seconds.
2. The buggiest issue I am having, is my computer refusing to be the "actual" screen. What I mean by this is that if I screen capture my desktop, the lower maybe 1/6th of the bottom and the right side is cut off, the resolution being weird.
I.E If i stream, and capture a window, and my mouse is in the middle ON MY SCREEN, the stream will show my mouse cursor to the right and a bit below of where it should be in the middle.

Please help me, as I've already tried my laptop brand's customer service GIGABYTE, and Reddit, but to no avail, and GIGABYTE takes forever for them to respond to tickets, and all they ask for is if i installed anything, etc when I got the laptop, when the issue was from the beginning.

Disable/Enabling NVIDIA/INTEL HD graphics cards
System Reformat
Updating drivers
Change resolution

Thank you for your time, and I pray that someone has a solution for me... this is extremely annoying
 

Answer:Hard to explain issue with Laptop and screen

Hi there

If you have tried a system format the chances are almost 100% hardware related.
You will have to take it back to the seller for inspection.

The will either repair the laptop or credit you.

Best Regards

I seem to have broken my laptop. I was trying to hook it up to a tv with an HDMI cable. Following the advice on a website I went to "Adjust screen resolution" to try and find the tv as another device and enable that. However there was no other device, so I decided to play around a bit to see if I could get something to , this was my mistake. On one of the drop down menus under the resolution menu I managed to select something which created a second device in the box showing how many displays you have. I was pretty sure it wasn't the tv but thought I'd keep playing around and on one of the other drop down menus I selected something like "expand across both displays"...said soemthing like that, and then that's when the laptop went blank, still a backlight coming from it but nothing but black on screen. I restarted the laptop, the screen showed up the windows starting stuff then the desktop flickered on for barely a second then it went back to blank screen. I can only guess I've created an imaginary device with obviously no display and this is what it is showing now when it's blank.
Hope this makes sense to someone else, not sure it does to me, I really shouldn't mess about with technology.
With some advice from someone else I tried toggling with the fn f buttons, f5 was the only thing that did anything but it just toggles from a light black to a dark black, as it would be if it were turned off. I have tried starting it in safe mode but it doesn't give me the... Read more

Answer:Laptop display issue screen blank

A Windows "System Restore" run from within Safe Mode should sort that out for you. If you don't know how to get to it then you'll find it under Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Restore. Choose the most recent restore point when everything was working fine.

New laptop, booted for 1 and a half hours, now has a green line down the screen.

The retailer wants a screen shot by email before they will even issue an RMA No and agree to accept the laptop. I took a screenie with HypersnapDX but the green line doesn't show up.

They suggested a cell phone with bluetooth / usb - but the laptop doesn't have bluetooth and the cell doesn't come with a compatible cable.

Do I have any options here - software wise to enable me to grab a pic of the green line ?

I've a Lumia 520 and I've recently updated Lumia Denim. I'm getting this problem after updating Lumia cyan. I've updated only official versions not pfd. I'm using class 4 SanDisk micro sd card. Can anyone please tell me the solution? I've gone to Nokia care but they can't able to solve the problem. Thanks. Please tell me if anyone faced this problem also.

Answer:Why is my facing app icon blank(grey) amd some times home screen tiles blank?

Are the blank/grey tiles apps which are on your SD card because it looks like a SD card problem.
If so get your SD card out and scan it on errors with your PC.
Maybe you need to get a new SD card if the problem stay's in this case I would recommend a class 6 or even better a class 10 card.

Hello there, its the Celestial Crown Prince of Canada here.I've been a loyal user of HP Consumer-Level Laptops for 2 years.It seems that there is a screen display issue with my Laptop.For myself, this is the first time an issue of this kind has occurred. For some reason, during my current(well, now its my last) session, my screen went totally blank on me and turned black, as if the laptop was in an off sort of power state, however, the laptop power was still on and before the issue suddenly decided to happen in front of my very eyes, I had been using the laptop, and was even working on doing some coding...some of you may know me as the creator of the Celestial Crown System.ini Configuration File.Apparently, this is a known HP Laptop Issue, and I'm not sure if HP is actively focusing on fixing the issue so that it does not become an inconvenience to other HP Laptop users or buyers.Is there any known solution as to how to fix this sort of issue? This is very critical, and I was in the midst of trying to save the rest of my code in notepad to my desktop, but I would surmise that asides from the 2 files I was able to save, the rest would be gone unless I would be able to resume my last session which I highly doubt at this point. If anyone could please let me know as soon as possible, I would immensely appreciate it. ~CCPOC Benson Lam

I picked up a Dell Inspiron 5000e laptop second-hand (Windows ME installed) and I'm trying to get it to work. There are two issues: screen and touchpad. I'm just focusing on the screen for now since I can plug in an external mouse. Here are the symptoms (I think they may all be related):

When I turn the laptop on, the LCD screen will not light up. If I press Fn + F8 to toggle CRT/LCD, the LCD screen will flicker briefly. If I hold a flashlight to the screen, I can still see a very dim image but the backlight refuses to stay on. However, if I plug in an external VGA monitor, then press Fn+F8 several times, the LCD screen will stay on. I can even unplug the ext. monitor and the LCD screen backlight will continue to stay on. I just need to plug in the ext. monitor at some point after power-up to get the backlight to stay on. Or, if I plug in the ext. monitor before power-up, the LCD screen backlight will come on and stay on from the start.
I have to try 3 times before I am successful to boot into Windows ME. The first time, I get Windows ME loading image for about 15 seconds then the screen goes dark (not off -- just black), then the hard drive stops accessing and nothing happens. I restart either with Ctrl+Alt+Del or by holding down power button, then I am given the option to boot into safe mode. I select "Normal" boot (not Safe Mode). The same thing happens a second time. The third time, I successfully boot into Windows. (Other times I booted into Safe Mod... Read more

Hi,
The LCD screen on my laptop began to develop- a series of horizontal lines and over the course of two weeks it went from 3 or 4 lines to a total blurred white out making the screen completely unviewable.
I bought a replacement screen assembly and installed it and it appeared to work just fine. However once the remaining battery charge depleted, the laptop would not turn on and did not seem to charge. I tried the unplug, battery reset, hold power button combo but could not get the computer to power up.
I reinstalled the non-functioning screen and now the computer will power up - but I cannot see anything on the screen.
I wondered if it was something to do with the comp not recognising that the replacement screen was open. Has anybody got any advice or similar experience of this.
I'm cracking up a bit here as I thought it was solved but now it's not
Thanks

Answer:Samsun Laptop screen replacement power issue

Assuming you tried powering up with the battery removed and that didnt work, did you remove the battery when you replaced the screen?
It seems likely that you have damaged the power circuitry on the motherboard.
Your theory about the laptop not recognising that the screen is open is reasonable but the wrong way around as it must have noticed that the screen was open as it continued to run until the battery went flat. Its usually the proximity of the screen to the laptop body that trips a reed relay that turns the laptop off.
Its possible that the reason why it powers up with the old dead screen is because being dead its not consuming any power but when you connect the new screen it refuses to power up because the power drain is too much for the damaged power circuitry.
Of course all of the above is supposition and the problem may be due to something entirely different.

I have a Dell Inspiron 17RSE laptop (the SE = special edition of the 17R (7720)). Lightning stroke the router which was connected to my laptop through an Ethernet cable. The laptop was off during the strike, but afterwards the router was fried and the laptop screen did not power on (or so I thought) when the laptop was powered on. I then connected an external monitor to the VGA out, and this works. The graphics card also seems to be picked up correctly inside speccy/HWMonitor/Everest and CUDA acceleration works inside Adobe Premiere Pro, so I guess I can rule out a fried GPU. The monitor Part Number is N173HGE L-11 rev.2 (ChiMei) --- and in Everest it says Manufacturer: HDKPV173HGE --- http://www.laptopscreen.com/English/screen-part-number/N173HGE-L11/. As I said initially I thought the screen was completely blank, but upon shining a light on the screen I can see an image on the screen, just very faint (btw the display brightness is set to max). I then looked for the LCD power inverter, but realised the screen is a LED screen so there is no inverter. So I'm thinking it could be a burned out fuse near the LCD connector cable on the motherboard itself, or the LED backlight is burned out.
What do you think?
Other changes in my laptop state since the lightning strike:

1) the laptop seems to overheat when running Adobe Premiere Pro -- which is set to use GPU acceleration. Using HWMonitor it seems to be the CPU, not the GPU, that overheats and all 8 threads of the CPU... Read more

Answer:Laptop LED screen only very faintly lit. LED backlight problem or other issue?

A fuse would make sense. Seems like you know what you're doing, so take the thing apart locate said fuse and put a multimeter across it, see the resistance.
