Re: Laptop screens gone mad

Is it always like that or does it flicker. You could try a driver update, but my guess would be a loose connection or dry joint somewhere.

Edit: Do you have an external monitor or TV you can plug it into to see if the same happens on that?

Is it like that right from when you press the power button, or just once windows has loaded.

Not a driver or windows problem then. The wifes laptop has a similar issue, but tilting the screen at certain angles puts it right. I would suggest getting it looked at.

Re: Laptop screens gone mad

Set your power options to sleep when you close the laptop lid.

Use the laptop 'til it looks mad, then close the lid. Wait 30mins then open the lid and carry on using the laptop.

All that procedure is intended to see if something is overheating - either the screen, CPU or the graphics card.

If it's still mad as soon as you open the lid, it's not an overheating problem. If there's a delay before it starts behaving that way again, it's an overheat.

Re: Laptop screens gone mad

ouch! Either a damaged screen or the connector between has a wire loose. Seen similar things on those flip mobile phones, where the ribbon inbetween eventually gave up the ghost.... does the screen change at all when you move the lid?

How about VGA. Does your TV have a vga port? (and does your laptop have a vga output or maybe another output) perhaps you could use the laptop on the TV
