Hey you guys... I have an emachine M6811 laptop and I has been the worst computer ive ever bought! I made the biggest mistake ever! But w.e. Im stuck with it and now I have a problem that I must correct; maybe someone can help me with it...
There are a whole bunch of colored vertical lines running through the screen... and when I kinda of try to bend the screen, it goes away... but as soon as I let go, it comes back!
Can someone please help me... I dont know what to do...
I need know about your operating system. Look as your screen is bad but do you can try of get new drivers, new accelerators for your lap video, because you said it goes away but as soon as i let go it comes back, to seem drivers accelerator problem.
After taking my laptop through the airport twice..i noticed the same thing happening to my laptop ..first one vertical purple line all the way down the screen..now today one yellow line..Could this be a virus or something that the airport caused while checking my laptop for bombs??? Any idea?
Sorry, you're all wrong. For future reference, this can't be a virus; viruses are software, and bending the laptop is not an interface maneuver. The computer has NO idea you're bending it, so a virus cannot detect such a thing as an "event", so to speak (I bet tons of ubergeeks are flying in a roflcopter right now)
This is what's happening. There's a contact in the back of your LCD that is being made that shouldn't be. Remove the rubber things on your screen, those will reveal some screws. Unscrew the thing, and then slowly snap off the front cover, exposing the LCD screen.
(If you're not careful you'll break the screen, but hell, who cares the screen sucks anyway--buy a new one and leave your comp disassembled in a safe place and you can just plop the new one in)
Now, if you're an expert with hardware, you can somehow figure out a way to relieve the offending area without doing something stupid like I did. What I did is jam a few business cards I had handy into the offending area.
It should be a part of the circuitboard in the same place as your offending area(s), but if not, just poke around with a pencil and see what it does. YES, you will have to do this plugged in and turned on! But don't worry, it's just a screen, see above if you somehow are crazy enough to fry the screen!!! When doing this, you should be looking for areas that make it WORSE when you do this--this is because the offending areas will get worse when further contact is made, so you gotta try and force that to happen. if you make it "permanently" worse, don't worry, you can always jam some more business cards, or improvise, come up with your own solution
Now if someone could only tell me why my old Acer gives me direct read/write errors on whatever hard drive I throw in!
@Gleb, Its probably because one or more drives on your laptop has fat32 file system which the default file system which acer configures it as. I think changing the file system should help, btw changing file system means formatting the hdd and loosing data....:D
Haha guys its not cuz of the DRIVER OK lol its a hardware problem that mean its the wire goin from ur graphic card to ur monitor if ur lucky and can get a new wire just change the darn thing but some monitor u need to order the lcd screen to get that wire lol better start looking for a old laptop like your XD if you dont wana pay 200$ for that
And Btw its don't mean ur computer sucks lol its just usualy ur wire that got used from openin and closing ur monitor alot or sometime it can get crushed between plastic or such heh best thing u can do for now its play with the wire whille the computer open anyways u need to change the wire so XD
I'm having a similar problem with an Acer laptop running on Vista. It's only about two years old- and has been taken care of pretty well. The issue here is that the screen is distorted or has lines running across it, or sometimes the screen will freeze at the slightest touch and gradually fade to white, starting at the bottom left hand corner. This used to go away if I would push on the back of the screen or tap lightly on the top or side, but now it only seems to be resolved when I bend or warp the screen. http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_jGdVOcbDX74/SaqaiQdoXWI/AAAAAAAAAts/bNDyLCkgA_k/s400/A cer_Aspire_laptop_Pentium_dual_core_T3400.jpg there's the laptop- the exact model. Is there anything I can do that is low cost to fix it? I don't have the necessary skills to fix it myself.
Hey guys....I have a similar problem with my hp pavilion laptop...pretty old one probably taken two years ago. I can spot a vertical green line towards the right side of my monitor and it disappears for a second if i change the alignment and returns back again! As Its been more than two years there is no warranty on it...can someone suggest me on what has to be done????
Hey guys recently my screen too had somehow attracted these green horizontal lines but their kinda like flashing real fast, tryed restarting, worked the first time but it came back and now wont go away!! No idea what caused it or how to fix it.
Guys, please don't ever buy a laptop again. I know what you did. You either, A: Bent the screen or punched it, crushing contacts together, B: Dropped your laptop. In either one, you don't know how to care for it. And also, never buy a dog or a cat, you might break those too.
@Christoper D Little presumptious doncha think? Perhaps some one else dropped it? As happened my case. Also, I'd like to meet some one who has never dropped anything. Because I very much doubt they exist.
