Having problems with your Computer Monitors ?

What can cause a single red line to appear on my laptop LCD screen? It's a small/fine red line appear horizontally (left to right) It's NOT radio interference,back light,broken ribbon cable,or connector problem. Line appear 24/7/365. Is there a fix for this?


Answers :

Thats a generic problem with LCD screens. Its more common in Mobile screens. Sorry, no there is no fix to it other than replacing the LCD itself. Just pray that it shall not grow because as and when the compressed gas from within the LCD will leak the line will be becoming broader and broader. It is caused by damage to the LCD corner Just a hit on side of LCD and a hairline crack for giving way to the encapsulated gas.
You have a dead row of pixles, this is a common problem in LCD screens that have been in use for a while, the line appears (it's color is sometimes different, and it is sometimes verticle [my computer has a verticle blue line]) this cannot be fixed, you can try to ignore it, and if you cannot then you need to get a new monitor.

Router problem. Time Warner had a internet problem last Sunday, April 26 here in the Northeast. They fixed it, but our internet still didn't function properly as it did before the TWC problem. Very slow connections and timing out most of the time. Talked to TWC tech person, and found out that internet was fine to my main computer, but when the router was hooked up the problem came back. Netgear WGR614 v4. Only thing TWC said was to try and change channel. We tried but problem still exists.
