Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

The screen on my 6 month old Toshiba Satellite laptop has stripes/striations/distortion across the bottom 3rd of the screen. Making bottom of screen nearly illegible. What should I do?


Answers :

Hi,\015\012Definitely you have a driver issue and potentially an LCD issue.
I would do a clean install of the OS.
If you still have issues, your screen is damaged. Lines running thrugh an LCD screen are a sign of dead pixels/columns. You can get screen replacements for laptops via a kit or servicing.

\015\012you can check online for LCD replacement kit costs.... prices vary widely for computer models
