Having problems with your Acer TravelMate 4150LCi Notebook ?

Vertical red line on notebook screen

\015 I have a red line running vertical in near centre of my screen can it be that the VGA controller is starting bust or drivers is incorrect? Where do I find the drivers for this laptop since Acer don't have on their site?\015

Answers :

I'd advocate that the red line indicates that the screen needs to be replaced. As much as I would like to be able to tell you a quickfix that will solve the problem . The reason is that the flexcable that leads the signals into the actual LCD panel came loose, it is not an external connector issue, but rather related to how the internal signal flow of the LCD panel. It is not a solderable connection that on that can otherwise be repaired. I work for a Laptop Repair shop and if a solution popped up for removing this problem without having to replace the screen, we'd be very curious to find out about it.

Unfortunately, a red line of pixels is usually caused by a short in the controller array of the LCD panel itself. Its also possible (but not likely) the cause can be due to a bad video cable or lose connection. It wouldn't hurt to try taking apart your laptop display and checking it out. Aside from that your only alt. is to replace the LCD panel. Sorry for the bad news, hopefully your still under warranty.
