If you're still in warranty, send it to the manufacturer to fix. Hardware faults like this should be fixed as soon as possible by a professional. DIY rarely works with laptops, you'll at best invalidate your warranty and at worst brick your computer.

my laptop is outoff warranty a month before and they ask me for Rs. 18000 to fix this problem.

It's most likely a monitor fault, though it could also be the graphics card. It's a funny thing, but computers tend to die quite quickly just after they come out of warranty.

Thanks for your replies

i have resolved this it just due to incomplete installation of graphics card driver

but that person made me fool and ask for money or they really dont know so much about technical information about there products.

by the way thanks again

Mostly they just accept your computer and send them to another company.
Maybe you can look around for others shops which custom build PCs instead of importing Dells. In my experience big companies tend to hire cheap, unskilled workers. Smaller shops often need their expertise to stay competetive.

Good for you.

So now, a quick checklist for those who get any similar problems.

What to do if there is a new colored line on your monitor:

1) Confirm whether it is hardware or software.

2) Check whether the line comes in the initial BIOS booting up screens. If it does, probably hardware.
2a) Hardware can be graphics card or monitor problem
2b) Connect another monitor and check
2c) If it is laptop, then connect a monitor to the VGA out and check
2c) Rarely it can also be RAM error

3) If it comes only after Windows(or whatever OS) is booted up, then its a problem with the software.
3a) Could be graphics card driver
3b) Could be motherboard
3c) Could be any other software

Hope this helps.



The thread can probably be locked now. Very Happy

that happened to my old laptop... a cable began to wear off and was causing that

The way we do this before is to get stylus and press the edge of the screen of the laptop going from end to end so that the screen will be tighten, specially if you hear a buzzing sound on the screen this should work great.

Maybe there is a problem on LCD screen better to check the warrany status on dell website or check your video card if its properly installed. or run dell diagnostic tools.

Your LCD might be ruined. Send your laptop to professional service center to fix your LCD. They might just fix the defective parts or replaced it with a new LCD part.
