Having problems with your Dell Latitude D510 Notebook ?

I have vertical coloured lines on screen, these will go away if screen is pushed back and forth. Any Ideas? It is a Dell Latitude D510


Answers :

There is a thin ribbon cable that runs from the motherboard to the screen, it is this that has worn.

\015\012If you can imagine every time the laptop is opened and closed it bends the ribbon cable back and forth and eventually get fatigues giving the lines on the screen where it is wearing away the connection.

\015\012They can be replaced but require quite a lot of work to replace as you have to strip down the screen and base unit to get to both ends.

\015\012Search for Dell D510 Display cable and you should find what I am talking about. A second one appears to be about £10 - £15.
