Having problems with your Dell PC Laptops ?

Horizontal Line running down my Laptop Computer Screen

\015 I have a Dell Inspiron 1720 Laptop Computer and I have a thin dark blue horizontal line running right down the middle of my screen. Is there a way to fix this without having to buy a new computer screen? (This happened once before and I fixed it but I forgot how!)\015

Answers :

You can try changing resolution to something else and then back.
You can see if your colors are 32-bit.
The fact that you "fixed" it is probably an coincidence. Once you start getting anomalies like that, it usually means a new screen.

Acer Aspire 3000 notebook: 1) monitor displays horizontal random lines. This can be fixed by clamping the bezel to the lid, at the position of the lid release catch, using a bull-dog (spring) clip. It works, but obviously isn't a permanent answer. New screen and/or inverter indicated? 2) computer only works from the battery - about 1 hour's use from full charge. Battery charger charges the battery only when the computer is switched off and it isn't possible to run the computer using the charger


Monitor: if the inverters were blown, you would be unable to use clamps as a workaround. I suspect a lose or broken contact to the display wafer caused by rough handling of the laptop. This is delicate stuff, you cannot repair without specialized too ... Acer Aspire 3000 Notebook
