Having problems with your Dell InspironTM XPS M1210 Notebook ?

Dell XPS M1210 laptop was set next to a speaker and now the bottom half of the screen is grey


Answers :

It's due to the magnetic field interferences from the speaker. At the first place, you shouldn't keep it near the speakers.


Always keep speakers far away from the Monitor.Now turn off the monitor and turn it on again,hope it solve the problem. You may even need to restart the system.

Moving magnetic fields (such as from an electric motor) can cause\015\012flickering when near a CRT screen. A static magnetic field, such as\015\012from your computer's speakers, can cause color shifts or incorrect\015\012colors in the area near the magnet. This color shift is caused by parts\015\012of the screen becoming magnetized. Occasionally the color shift will\015\012remain after you remove the source of magnetism. To help reduce or\015\012eliminate the color shift, you can use the degaussing option on most\015\012monitors. Most newer monitors automatically degauss when you turn them\015\012on, while older monitors might require you do to it manually. Most\015\012monitors have a button or menu option that enables you to degauss it\015\012manually. Degaussing a monitor will de-magnetize the inside of the\015\012monitor, removing the color shift. Unfortunately, if the monitor is\015\012exposed to the source of magnetism for too long, degaussing will not be\015\012able to clear it up, requiring you to repair or replace the monitor.
