Laptop LCD screen or screen connection issue

Question: Laptop LCD screen or screen connection issue

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.

Preferred Solution: Laptop LCD screen or screen connection issue

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.)

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!

My Laptop (Thinkpad X1 Carbon, Graphics card "Intel HD Graphics 520") does not recognise that I connected an external HD monitor through HDMI. The external monitor is powered. I changed the display resolution to the resolution of the external screen (1920:1080), I applied the F10 key, I changed the BIOS: "Shared display priority: HDMI". Nothing helped.The BIOS setting "Shared display priority: Display on Dock" does not yield any results either. I switched the computer on and off, connected the cable before and after switching it on. No results either. The device manager does not give any indication about HDMI-connectors. The HDMI-Displayport cable is new (I have not tested a different one). So I am out of my depths. If anybody knows, how I can solve this I would be grateful.

Hello all! I've never had this issue before so I was hoping I could get some input on the difficulty of a fix - any help would be greatly appreciated! So my problem is the screen on my E420s (about a year and a half old, not cool) randomly freezes fades to white. I've determined that it's likely a connection issue because Windows does not freeze and wiggling the screen fixes the problem. I'm sure this problem will get worse over time and I really like the laptop, so I'd like to fix it vs ditch it. I've looked through the manual for the disassembly, but I'm not sure what to look for once I open the machine up.  Does anyone have any experience with this? Thanks! mb

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

Hello 18042002Thanks for using the Lenovo forums.Try to download the Video and Chipset drivers for the unit from the support page.
 
Make sure to reboot after an update on the unit.
Also, Try a static discharge for this, it may help to resolve the issue or at least get rid of any built up static on the motherboard.(If the battery is internal, please just skip the remove/replace battery steps.)1. Turn the unit off2. Remove the battery and the Mains adapter3. Press and hold the front power button for 30 seconds4. Replace the battery and the Mains adapter5. Turn the unit on as normal

when i unplug my ac adapter from the wall before i unplug it from my lappy the screen stays bright, which isnt bad. but when i plug it in(wall first then lappy) it goes dim, like its in power saving mode. now how i usually fix this is i recreate the problem by unplugging it from the wall then turning the comp off, then unplug it from the comp while plugging it back into the wall, turn the comp on then plugging it back in. but it usually takes me a couple tries to get it back to normal again. ive turned off my power saving features and ive just had the computer screen replaced about 2 weeks ago. its always done this and i know it happens when i unplug it from the wall first; which if im in a hurry i dont think about it untill its to late.

its not that big of a problem but i would love to know how to fix it faster or maybe disable any features that could cause this.

my computer is an HP Pavilion zv6100 Notebook PC. its all stock except for the new screen.(the springs broke that hold it up and there was a dead pixel at the top)

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?

Thanks

Answer:HP laptop screen issue

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?

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.

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.

Sometimes it seems like it has to cool down for it to work, I'll have to leave it off for a while before the screen will work. But also i noticed that the fan doesnt seem to be running as fast when the screen isnt working. Is this because my computer isnt fully booting? I'm thinking i may have fried my video card, as i play WoW sometimes. Could this be a virus? Any help would be appritiated.

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.

Answer:Dodgey laptop screen connection

You mean the display works or doesn't, depending on how far the lid is raised? This is likely a bad connection, but fixing it depends if something is coming unplugged or is broken. Dell provides decent repair manuals, others are hit and miss.

What is the manufacturer and model for the laptop?

Hi folks.
I,m looking for a bit of advice on removing the screen from an Asus Aspire 7730.

A few months ago I spilt the best part of a pint of lager on the keyboard. I did all the, remove battery, keys etc.
Dried it all out in the airing cupboard and stuck it back together and it worked fine except for one little tick.
When I opened the laptop, the screen would go blank at a certain angle from the horizontal, (85-110degrees).
No probs. I just got used to having to wiggle it about a bit till it found a stable position.
Now it will only remain visible when set at about 65degrees from horizontal,(Leaning forward toward user), and is blank in any other position.
I dont want to take it to a shop to be told I need a new screen etc, as I know it is purely a mechanical, switching type of problem.
I,ve tried setting the comp to, "Do nothing", when lid is closed etc, but it doesnt help.
Anyone know how to safely remove the screen and just give the connections/switches a little clean out?
Thanks in advance.
 

Answer:Dodgy laptop screen connection.

Click this link to download a service manual for that laptop :- http://tim.id.au/laptops/acer/aspire 7730 7730g.pdf

I hope you're right and it's easy to fix but I wouldn't be surprised if some lager has got into the cable and damaged some of the wires. You may be able to get a replacement cable if that's happened, see pages 96 and 97 in the manual.

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 was using my laptop yesterday afternoon, when the screen began to fail. I turned the laptop off because it had froze, and when I tried to turn it back on, it just continuously reboots and shuts off, and the screen will not come on.

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?
 

Answer:Laptop won't start after screen issue

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.

Hello,

I just recently dropped my laptop and now my screen does not work (rainbowed lines across screen, black ink marks, white boxes, etc).

I have a feeling that this will be an expensive trip to the repair store, so I was wondering if it would be possible to get a cable to display the monitor on my TV instead (at least for now, because I am a college student).

The only output i have on my HDD is a monitor output (like for a big bulky moniter), and my TV has a yellow video in slot. My TV also has a RadioShack RF modulator with the same thing and an SVideo slot.

How do i do this and what cables should I look for? Also are there any better alternatives?

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.

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

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.

What I have tried:
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.

i just got a new laptop with a 17 inch screen, if i pull up a web site with allot of typed wording (not graphics) i can sometimes see faint green or red almost like a shadow of some of the wording. but if i go to a solid screen it is not there.. so i am almost sure its not dead pixels. anyone else ever experience this?

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 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

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.

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. Thanks

Answer:Laptop screen issue, dimmed in corner

Try booting into Safe Mode. Since that uses a generic display driver and runs minimal software I think if you get the same dimmed part of the screen you can be pretty confident that you want to get warranty service.

I bought this laptop back in September-ish of 2014. It runs perfectly fine still and always has but the image on my screen has been a problem since probably December of 2014. 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.

Anyone please help lol....Bestbuy within 10 minutes told me it would cost me $200 for a new screen without even doing anything besides comestically looking at the screen and laptop. HP has been beyond awful in their "support"

Hey folks!

Recently purchased a new laptop - http://www.samsung.com/hk_en/consumer/computer-peripherals/notebook/series-3/NP300E5C-S02HK (However I'm on Windows 7)

I went about trying to plug it into my television (Toshiba 40BV701B) via an HDMI cable and had the notorious problem of not being able to find the right screen resolution. I went into display settings and started mucking around to find the right one. However, I must've selected a resolution setting that was too bizarre or something (think I went really high) because the image didn't show up on the TV (nor on the laptop as I had set the laptop screen to switch off when plugged into the TV) and after a few seconds of nothing my laptop made its 'something has been removed/unplugged' sound and the screen flicked back on. A few seconds more and it would make the sound of 'something has been plugged in' before switching its screen off and seemingly trying to connect to the TV again. This would repeat for as long as the HDMI cable was connected.

I get the feeling that I could sort the problem by changing the res for when the laptop is plugged into the TV, but the only way I know how to do that is when the laptop is plugged into my TV and there is no longer any screen working when this happens! I probably should have done a system restart at the time, but think I have left it far too long now.

Any help would be much appreciated,
Cheers!
 

Answer:Changed screen res for HDMI connection. Screwed up my laptop!

When you change resolution Windows gives a few seconds of the new resolution and a dialog box comes up asking if you are happy with the new settings. This could account for the sounds you heard a few seconds after plugging into the TV.

Have you tried changing the settings for extended display and leaving the laptop screen on. This will make it much easier to change around the resolution settings.

Hello,

I have a Lenovo Z710 laptop. It has keyboard like THIS. On F9 key it you can turn on/off laptop screen. Do you know what Im talking about? Remember this for later. Also, I always use external 24" Dell monitor, 99% of time.

I have the following problem. Every day, once or twice, out of nowhere my laptop screen goes black and my external monitor gets disconnected. I dont know the exact reason, but I think the issue might be with nVidia graphic card. I have 2 GPUs, as you can see in my specs info.

But Im not sure. Every time I run a game with nVidia (Modern Combat 5), in just a matter of minutes, the game crashes. So that's why I always use integrated intel graphics. But the issues still happens. That's why Im not sure that nvidia card is the problem.

Now that I described my problem to you, I would appreciate if someone can tell howcould I diagnose the problem??

The screen is not all black, instead, pixels are washed out, leaving a halo in a few spots on the laptop screen, when the computer was initially started from the box. The first one was shipped and I assumed it may have been handled poorly and now the similiar with the second one. I will follow up with a call to HP, I wanted to know if the community has any screen quality issues?

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

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: HDKPVÉ173HGE --- 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?

Hello, I have a T520 with a docking station.  There is an external monitor connected to the VGA port in the docking station and I have the laptop set to only use the external monitor.  However, when I close the screen of the laptop and put the laptop to sleep, and then when I open the laptop again, the laptop monitor turns on and mirrors on the external.  So basically, I need to set it to only use the external every time the laptop starts up.   Is there any fix to keep the laptop screen off while it is docked? Thanks.

Answer:T520 External Monitor/Laptop Screen issue

I don't have a dock to test. But I would look at the setting for Action when closing the lid/cover. Hibernate, go to sleep would be the normal actioins. You'd want nothing to happen. Look into the choice and I believe that will resolve it. There may be a group for when DOCKED as notebooks had years ago. The settings would apply only to when Dockend and not undocked.

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.

I've owned my HP laptop for almost three years now, and up to this point it has worked great throughout it's use. Recently, it seems like the hinges to open and close my screen have been putting some stress on the screen frame. Every time I open my laptop up, I have to take about 5 minutes to open it carefully so the frame doesn't come loose on the bottom left corner. Closing it is an issue too, as I usually have to close my fingers on it to keep the frame from going loose, resulting in it coming loose despite my hardest efforts, in which case I have no choice but to close it and snap everything back into it's rightful place. I took my laptop over to Best Buy for their input, and the only thing they suggested was superguling the frame to the screen. I took their advice and tried it, letting it sit for 2 days open while it set. (You can never be too careful!) The superglue did nothing and my frame is still loose, and I now have an ugly line of superglue on the bottom of my screen that sets off my OCD every time I need to get work done. If anyone has any idea on how to go about fixing this situation, I'd appreciate it.Thanks!

Had this Sager np2740 laptop and it has had lot of issues. When i first got it, it was great. Battery was good and everything. After having the laptop for a bit, my battery went bad. Had that Red X mark on it. I bought a new battery replacement which was expensive. Had to go to repair shop to install battery on laptop because you had to open laptop in order to put battery in.


After that, battery went bad and had that Red X mark ever since. Then recently my laptop flickers a lot the screen. Like rainbow color. Now theres a black line there. But if i move screen up or down, it goes green or yellow etc. The thing though is i connect my laptop to an external monitor so i dont have this issue with my main screen. Thus it would be impossible to use my laptop by itself because of the blurry lines.


Since I'm out of warranty... this is with xoticpc, what can i do about this case? Go to a repair shop and see what they can do about it? The thing is if i need a replacement part, wouldn't i need to order from sager/xoticpc for this issue? I have had nothing but issues with this laptop once the battery first ran out.

I also had another issue related to this. Earlier when i was trying to click on things on my laptop screen... it kept asking me if i want to delete this program from computer. Example i would left click on a program on my desktop or click on my pictures or documents.
I click no and then i had this message show up over and over again where I cannot X it out. Had to been like that message popping up over and over again. I assume this is related to the screen flickering? Example i would use my mouse and click on programs on my desktop or my documents etc left clicking it like normal. It would then have the popup are you sure you want to delete file and send to recycle bin. Basically i click no but that same message keep popping up over and over again. When i got control alt delete, you see it has like 50 processes that say program isn't responding or something like that. Only way to get rid of this is to restart my laptop or shutdown then start it up again.
And when i do restart laptop or close it and start up, it would have this message with black screen and have option to click Enter where it says Window 7. Like asking which program to start up. Does anyone know what this is?

The backlight is still on (I can adjust the brightness of the screen using shortcuts) and the laptop still runs (music still plays etc) but I can?t see the screen.I have found by hitting the space bar repeatedly can sometimes make the screen come back to life, but not always but I don?t know why this is happening.I contacted Sony and they said ?From what you describe it would appear that there could be an issue with a connection with the display. It may be necessary to arrange the collection for repair of the VAIO... To confirm if this is a hardware fault with the VAIO we would recommend that a full system recovery is carried out on the VAIO.? which basically means it goes back to factory settings, which is something I want to avoid as I haven?t backed up any songs, work, photos (I?m buying an external hard drive this week).Has anyone else come across this issue / has any insight how to overcome it??

from what Sony are saying it sounds like this may be a known build fault or loose wire problem. If this is the case returning the laptop to them would seem to be your only option.

Is there some feature that I could turn off to stop this?

What you are describing is normal with LCD screens (as used in laptops) but if the screen is too dark for you then there is usually a way to turn up the brightness (check your manual).

It depends what you are using to connect to the DSL connection. If you are using a USB modem plugged into a computer then you will need a new kind of modem called a wireless router. However if you already have the right equipment then all you need to do is follow this guide for Windows Vista and this guide for Windows XP.

I've got an s-video out and 3.5mm stereo to scart cable connecting my notebook to my tv. Video card is ATI Radeon IGP 340 integrated. It all seems to be working fine, except that when I try playing any video files in windows media player, the movie shows up as a monotonous deep purple on the tv screen. Sound works fine though. Any tips on what to do to be able to watch videos from my notebook on tv screen?

So the Y560 was the first laptop I have ever owned. I am a a college student that saved for a long time to puchase this laptop for school. I did research on the Y560 and it was a "great" laptop.... by that i mean it had great features for a good price compared to comprable laptops. I was under the impression i was buying a quality laptop boy i don't think iv ever been so wrong.
 
I don't move my laptop it sits on a desk and looks pretty. Currently my screen must either be shotty or have a bad connection. Every time i open it i am now faced with a black sometimes blueish flickering and just nonsense moving pixel lines. I would have to tinker with the screen and it would go away. The screen problems began with one yellow pixel line slightly right of the middle of the screen. The line is one pixel wide and runs vertically on the screen. I have have about 8 lines scattered across the screen ranging from pink to yellow to a aqua. Those were extremely annoying but managable. This new problem is unbareable. The screen now has all kinds of white lines(in addition to the color lines) in it that make doing almost anything impossible. Its hard to look at, hard to read, and frustrating. Tinkering with the screen no longer elps only makes it worse. Help! is this a cable, the screen, or just the junk lenovo has sold as a laptop. Below is a picture. The left hand side.... yes all of that bright white is the problem and the pixel lines are the colored ones.

It's not the size of the display screen, these are all fairly identical. It is the connector socket and the rail screw positions that will bite you.

I suggest finding an exact replacement. If you can't find one on eBay then you certainly will at a store like this one:
LAPTOP SCREEN from $34.99, replacement LCD screens. Repair Tablet, Acer, Apple, iPhone, iPad, Samsung, Dell, HP Compaq, Toshiba, IBM Lenovo, Sony, Asus, Gateway.

I have an Insignia 8" tablet that I use to listen to an internet radio station. WiFi connection to my 2Wire 3801HGV router. I have it powered by the AC charger. I have the display to turn off after 5 minutes, never to go into sleep mode when powered by AC. After the 5 minutes the display is turned off, the music continues as expected and will continue for hours. But if I try to do anything I loose my WiFi.
Right after the screen is shut off I can enable it again with a stroke. Then the music stops. I no longer have internet access.
Network settings says I still am connected but somewhere the connection is broken. I disconnect from my router and then try to reconnect and it will not. I get, Checking Network Requirements, Can't connect to this Network. The only way I have been able to get connected is to do a restart.
Any ideas on how to solve this problem? I have not found any settings that have been useful. All it should be doing is shutting off the screen. Not go into any other sleep or power down state.

Sorry, I can't help fix your issue, but I wanted to let you know that you are not alone!  We have 7 Elitebook 840 G3's wth Windows 10 on the 2013 UltraSlim Dock as well, and they are all doing the same thing.  Both external displays will go black for a few seconds periodically throughout the day.   We are using HP EliteDisplay E242 displays for all except one user, who has ASUS displays, and they all have the same issue, so the display itself does not appear to be the issue. The VGA port seems to work fine, so this points to the Display Ports/driver being the issue.  I have tried all available driver updates, but nothing has resolved the issue. We are looking for a solution to this issue as well.

Ok, basically here is my problem.

My screen brightness won't go above 70 on the brightness bar slider.

The reason I know my screen can be brighter is because this JUST started happening recently. (well like three months, but I haven't had time to deal with it until now)

And anyway- heres 'symptoms'

The Windows Mobility doesn't allow the slider to go more than 70

Doing FN + F7 for screen brightness to increase using Toshiba hotkeys thing it doesn't go brighter. (it works but not more than 70)

Right as I am restarting right as it boots up it is much brighter then after like a minute it goes to the 70 brightness mark.

It hasn't always done this.

Is this purely hardware issue with Toshiba? Is this like preventing the screen from being 'too' bright?

How can I get it to 100? On restart right before it dims the screen is much much nicer / brighter... It would be nice to have it brighter all the time..

I could do a system re-install... but I'm right in the middle of my school year and I don't really have time at this time...

Thanks for ideas and help.

Hi all. Is there any brilliance in the house? I hope so.

The inverter on my Acer Aspire 5103WLMi died after 13 months.

No probs. I bought a new one, put the machine together again and started it up. Perfect... well almost.

What is happening now is that I cannot get maximum brilliance from the screen. All the Windows option settings are set to the max and the are no other user settings available I can make to chance this.

Ok you'll be thinking there is an issue with the inverter but I'm far from sure that it is. The picture is perfect apart from this issue.

Booting up Vista will have the screen bright and brilliant (max brill). Windows will continue to load and then as the machine continues to load the registry and gets to the bit where the screen brilliance is set the screen will dip and settle to about 75-80% of it's capable brilliance. I feel sure this is a registry issue because of the boot up procedure which is clockwork and 100% predictable.

Where can I inspect the reg to find these settings? They must be there.

Other suggestions?

Many thanks.
Dave

Answer:Brilliance issue after screen inverter replacement on Acer Laptop

Are there really no takers on this?? How dissapointing.

For those that don't know what an inverter is. inverters create a hi voltage charge and light the screen bulb(s) on your laptop or monitor. When it don't work you will see a perfect but dark n unlit image on your screen.

Hello Folks,

Trying to fix my friends laptop but running into a weird issue.

Using Windows Vista Home Premium
Graphics Card is Standard Intel 945

When booting windows normally I get a solid blue screen (not BSOD) after the login screen. Boots into safemode normally.

Clean for viruses/malware

Tried the following:

1) Plugged in an external monitor (VGA Port) and it brought up a display window on pc showing it was currently in multiple monitor mode (still blue screen in backround). Blue Screen on monitor as well. Switched to Single Display and now just blue screen on laptop display. Connected to TV with S-Video. Blue screen on TV as well.

2) Changed Resolution as well as 16 bit/32 bit color. No Effect.

3) Uninstalled/Reinstalled Graphics Driver. No Effect.

4) Tried creating guest account and logging in normally. Won't get past login screen. Just continuously loading.

Any suggestions?
Thank You in Advance for any ideas.

hi all, a recent problem has occurred with my computer. whilst playing games, i can play for a few minutes, and then a black screen appears, with sound looping and the screen status colour changes from solid green to flickering green. This is XP Professional by the way.My system is as follows:P5N-E Sli MoboC2D E750 2.66ghz2.0 gb ramXFX 8800GTS 320mbThe games in which this occur are as follows:Team Fortress 2Grand Theft Auto: San AndreasThe Elder Scrolls IV: OblivionGuild WarsHowever, what is strikingly odd about this problem is that it only occurs about 80% of the time. Yesterday, I managed to play Guild Wars, Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic 2, Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas and The Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion absolutely perfectly.I have searched forums, and it seems this can be linked to overheating, but my temperature gauge on the front of the computer says I run at about 30 C most of the time, and the computer itself is not hot inside at all. All fans are spinning fine, no dust.I have heard other issues such as graphics card drivers, and i have tried 3 different drivers, all of which did not overcome this problem.Could it possibly be sound drivers? Or possibly something wrong with the motherboard?Thanks in advance.Mod Edit: Topic moved to more appropriate forum~ TMacK

I couldn't find a way of removing it, so I resorted to turning off my machine which caused the image to disappear when I switched it back on. I now see a strange print image every time I touch the screen since then, as if it is showing heat sensitivity for a short interval. Rather annoying , but then it disappears. Have I turned on some kind of development mode perhaps by accident , so that it shows where I last touched ! As anyone any ideas how to make this stop please or perhaps is my touch screen faulty ?!? Has anyone had experience with this issue in the past ?

As per the query we understood that you are facing issue with touchpad not working properly in your Lenovo G50-70 laptop.
 
Please try to connect external mouse and check for the issue, as this might be due to high sensitivity try to reduce the sensitivity and check for the issue.
 
To reduce the sensitivity go to windows start search and type control panel, select mouse. Under mouse select ultranav tab, double click on the touchpad setting and select pointing, under pointing select touch sensitivity and reduce and check for the issue.
 
 Hope this helps. Do post back if issue persists!

I've begun having an issue with my work X230.  On occasion, especially after I open the screen from the closed position, the LCD will freeze and stop updating.  Sometimes individual pixels also begin to grey out or turn white, leaving a sort of dithered greyscale image of the currently open window.  I've hooked up a secondary screen and can confirm that:The mouse and keyboard are still working, so it's not an input issue.The desktop and apps on the secondary screen are still responsive, so it's not a GPU issueWhen the primary display is closed, the current application appears on the secondary display and is responsive, so it's not an application issue.Adjusting the screen tilt repeatedly can cause this problem to go away, as can pushing on the surface of the annunciator bar below the LCD (the part of the bezel with the "lenovo" and "X230" logos, near the hinges).  I'm 99% certain this is a ribbon cable issue, either caused by a nearly-dislodged cable or a worn cable.  I've seen the same situation with a couple other laptops in the past. However, I have a few questions:1) Has anyone else seen this issue, and if so, what was your solution?2) Is this user-repairable?3) Is there anything I can do to keep this issue from worsening? Thanks.

Answer:X230 screen freezing - screen stops updating, goes gray - possible ribbon cable issue

Hello Lenovo customer,From the symptoms you have described it seems as if there may be a fault with the LCD cable within the machine. The indication that i have that it is the cable, is when you stated that the issue is resolved when you change the position that the LCD panel is sitting in. The LCD Cable isn't a customer replaceable unit so you may need to contact technical support in order to organize a service to get the LCD Cable replaced.

I have a friends Asus x54h laptop that is not booting, and it is droving me crazy.

-Booting with just the power cord connected.

-Booting with just the battery connected.

-Taking out the battery and unplugging the power cord and holding the power button for 40 seconds, then plug in and try to boot again.

-Attaching a screen and pushing the keyboard buttons to add an additional screen. Nothing showed up on it.

-Taking it's hard drive and putting it in a good laptop. It booted into Windows and ran without issues.

Hi,

Ive had the Acer 3003 wlmi for 4 years now (running XP) - ive always had issues with a flickering screen which is the first issue. Second one started about 2 years ago - the laptop began overheating. Sometimes it gets so extreme that Im unable to touch the mousepad or have the machine on my lap. If any intensive application is run (ie, malware scans, dvd, youtube stream etc), the machine overheats powers off.

Last week, this happened and so I switched on the machine as per usual again - I was taken to screen where it recommends safe mode (3 different options), a normal mode, or a last known settings mode - if I click on any of these options, the machine powers off, then loads up again - its just a cycle now and I can't get past it.

Ive been able to access the BIOS screen, and have also taken out the cooling fan to clean.

I have mechanical failure warranty and they are scheduled to pick the machine up for evaluation in the next day or so - they have warned me that if it turns out to be a software issue or virus, then I will be liable for charges. Obviously I dont want it to come to that - what is the likelihood of this being the case? I dont have the system restore disc anymore so am unable to run that.

Or is it a hardware failure taking all things into consideration?

Suggestions/advice are greatly appreciated!

Thanks

I've come here with a problem I've been having for the last week. I've had this computer for the last year.

Specs
Mobo:Foxconn H67m-s
GPU: XFX Radeon HD 5770 (Eyefinity edition)
CPU: i5 2400
RAM: Corsair 8gb (2x4gb)

The first time I got a blue screen, I just re-started my PC, didn't think much of it as it hasn't happened before.

The second time I got a blue screen was the day following after the first, which I thought was a bit odd, so I did a scan with Malwarebytes, cleared the registry and free space with CC cleaner and updated all the drivers(and updated windows).

Then It happened for a third time, so I did a system restore to a restore point 2 weeks prior to the whole problem.

It happened again.

From there, I took the step to completely re-install windows, formatted all the hard drives, just to make sure it isn't a Trojan or any Malware.

After installing the latest drivers, I got some wallpapers which I keep on a USB. when I was flicking through the images to see which one I wanted to use, the blue screen was in my face.

From this I thought it must be a hardware issue, so what I did, was reseat the ram. I even switched them up from their original position.

All was well and good till it happened once again last night.

Lately I've been noticing some screen tearing issues, every time I click a link, the screen tears before loading the window.

I come here to ask if there is any way I can fix such a thing?

Answer:black screen issue at screen instead of beautiful windows spotlight !!

Hi there PratikUnleashed

First I would check to see if your graphic driver is up to date: AMD Radaen.

You could also try once logged in, log out and see if it appears. Change the option to a sample picture, see if a pre-selected image works (when booted up). Make sure 'Show lock screen background picture on the sign in screen' is ticked.

Windows spotlight uses an internet connection to show the picture on the login screen which usually means the internet should be connected at all times.
