Having problems with your PC Laptops ?

Hi, I have a 6 month old laptop Acer emachines E625 and turned it on this morning to find 3 thin black horizontal lines have appeared (with about 2 or 3 smaller lines above each of the 3 lines) at the bottom about an inch above the bottom of the screen, then one about an inch above this one and then the third one about 2 inches above the top of the screen. They do not go across the whole screen, rather the longest one is the middle one which is about an inch long. Any idea what this is and what


Answers :

Attach an external monitor to your PC. If the problem continues there, it's your graphics card.
If the problem disappears, you have stuck/dead pixels.
You could try a very gentle rubbing of the pixel(s).
Don't try to rub the pixels all it does is spread it
