Think my screen is fucked.

Post  Randle on Thu Jan 20, 2011 1:09 pm

Just looked at my screen after leaving laptop idle for liek 15 minutes, and theirs this vertical line down the screen. Is the screen fucked or can I do something?

Whenever the next possible chance arises, remind me to check it out. Like I said - Could be a graphics card problem, overheating or dead pixels/screen problem.

Could try finding a Dell freephone warranty type number? Not sure if there is one though.

I think it's : ATI Mobility Radeon HD 5470.

I tried to update the driver and it said it was up to date, then tried to roll back the driver and no use :/ It's not a completely black line, it changed colour depending on the colour of the screen.

If its a desktop check it's seaterd in the circuit board properly, in fact you can do the same on a laptop its just more awkward.

It is a laptop Razz haha sorry should have said that before Razz You think there's anyway I could open it up to see if everything's seated properly? or will I have to send it in to do that?

This is the model:

nice, same design as mine, i can't be sure though, but on the bottom is a T shaped panel that gives quite a lot of roomy access without having to dissassemble too much. Although i've got a feeling you won't be able to reach the graphics card from there. You're probably best sending it in if it's still under warranty. It could be faulty memory in the graphics hardware which means it would need replacing.

Yeah, think I might just see if the warranty is still on this afro . If not, might take it to PC world and see if they can do something with it. Cheers for the suggestions Razz
