New Inspiron Gaming Laptop- Vertical Lines When Powered On

Q: New Inspiron Gaming Laptop- Vertical Lines When Powered On

I recently purchased an Inspiron Gaming Series Dell laptop and since yesterday when I open it/turn on the power button the screen displays green/white vertical triangle lines (can provide an image). It DOES NOT display the Dell logo at all and doesn't even give me the opportunity to sign in, it just stays stuck on the screen.
This laptop is fairly new, purchased back in August, so it should still be under warranty, but it worries me that it is having issues when it is still fairly new. What could be the cause of it? Any way I can fix it?

Preferred Solution: New Inspiron Gaming Laptop- Vertical Lines When Powered On

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I just got my laptop 2 days ago and it almost immediately started doing this to me. When I open the lid all I will see on it are gray lines with the mouse being a square shaped slightly off color gray line area. When it does this I have to completely power down my laptop to make it go away. Once I power it back on again it works perfectly fine though.
How do I fix this on my own or do I have to send it back to dell since its a faulty laptop? I really don't want to send it back though so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Send the system back for replacement - the other option is a repair, which will also require sending the system back -- and makes little sense on a brand new system.

I have a dell inspiron 15r-5537 laptop and it has developed vertical lines of pixels on the center-left of the screen. The color of the pixels seems to depend on the color being displayed behind them. see the link below for more info on what the lines look like. https://imgur.com/a/HREN8
anyway, i have reinstalled the video drivers so i do not think that is the problem, but they also do not seem to be dead pixels because they change colors sometimes. If anyone could help me fix this problem it would be great. thanks.

A:Inspiron 15R-5537 vertical lines on screen

Hi Mykalsson,
There seems to be problem with the LCD screen on your computer to confirm we will have to perform the ‘LCD BIST’ (Built in Self-test) on the computer. Please follow the steps mentioned below to run the “LCD BIST’.

Turn of the computer.
Press and hold down the ‘D’ key on the keyboard and press the Power button.
You will see different colors on the LCD screen. Please check if the vertical or horizontal lines are appearing on the screen.

If you see the lines appearing on the screen while the LCD bist is running you will have to replace the LCD.
Also, connect the laptop to an external monitor or display to check if issue reoccurs.

I open and close the lid a lot and since a few minutes my laptop have a pink vertical lines on the whole display and they appear everywhere. On the start sceen, bios, windows etc. Also when I change the position of the lid most of the lines dissapear for a while. I have run the lcd bist test and the lines are not shown there. Does this means that the problem is in the lcd cable? Could it be the lcd display itself or the video? I am also using an external monitor and it working fine there.
Thank you.

A:Dell inspiron 7520 pink vertical lines

It could very well be the wiring harness -- andd that would be the first thing to replace.  If you need a part reference, please supply the complete system model information (i.e., Inspiron 5521, etc. - NOT just Inspiron 15).

I got back from vacation and plugged my laptop in to work on pictures when some vertical lines and a bunch of horizontal squiggly lines popped up.  I can't figure out what has caused them.
I've run CCleaner & Super Anti-virus to ensure it's not malware.
I've run the Dell PC Diagnostic full test (which said their was an error and could not provide the results).  So I ran individual tests on video card, video stress test, monitor, and they all came fine.  
I am now going to reboot in safe mode and see if I can run off a motherboard video system & see if it's the video card.
I don't really have any idea what I'm doing so any help would be great!

Hi All,
I have Inspiron 5558 Signature Edition Laptop which i bought in 2015 November  . From Past few months , i see Purple Vertical Lines and Display Flickers a lot  . I ran Dell Diagnostic test and it passed Display Test ..Also i downloaded all latest  Display Drivers ...Still issue continues
Can someone  please suggest if there is a potential need to replace the Display Panel ?? 


A:Inspiron 5558 Signature Edition - Purple Vertical Lines and display Flicker

Attach an external monitor - if the fault doesn't show, the first thing to check/replace is the wiring harness that runs between the mainboard and back of the display panel.  If that doesn't help, replace the display.
If the same fault does show on an external screen, you're likely facing a bad mainboard.

I have a problem with my display adapter Intel driver version It is causing a problem of vertical lines on the screen when waking up from sleep, the only option is to reboot the machine.
I previously solved this problem by rolling back to the driver in the device manager to the previous version This fixed the issue until a recent update on 8th November when my driver was updated again.
Now when I enter the device manager the option to Roll Back Driver option is greyed out.
I've tried searching for a download of the old driver but can't find one.
Can anyone help with this problem?
And then once I've fixed it is there a way to stop the driver updating itself again?

A:Inspiron 3650 back from sleep issue - vertical lines on screen - rollback Intel driver problem

Assuming you are running Windows 10? With Windows 10, it is possible to stop it from auto updating drivers. Read this.You should download and save the Intel driver to its own folder on the C: drive in case you need to reinstall it again.I do not use sleep or hibernate modes on any of my computers (laptops or desktops). The only powersave option I use is the setting to turn the monitor off after 5 minutes. At the end of the work day, I save my data and close all running applications. I then turn the computers off.

My friend's laptop has vertical and horizontal lines across the screen, making lots of blocks across the screen.

Like the title says I see vertical lines on my Dell Precision M3800 QHD touch screen.
I first noticed a few months ago(like 4-5 months) but it stopped until last week. It starts as only 1 line, but as the computer starts to heat up more appear and in different colors. Some guys from the store told to connect it to an external display and check if the problem persists. Well, I tried it and the lines also appear on the external display. Does this mean it's the graphics card and not the screen? Is there any way to know for sure? Also, if it's the graphics card is there any way to replace it without having to replace the whole motherboard? If yes, can i change from a Quadro K1100M to any GTX?
Thank you.

PS(1)- I don't have any warranty

PS(2)- I also noticed that when watching one of those videos from youtube to look for dead pixels the line(s) only show up on specific colors. For example, when playing the video on full screen I only see the line on green and purple.

Hello, I bought a new expensive hp laptop from official hp website with extended warranty and all expecting that if there is any issue, I will at least be helped with on it. The laptop was delivered around 15th Aug and by the end of month there was the below issue:the screen started blurred up with vertical lines throughout. Initially, it was just for a milisecond and unfortunately, I ignored it(Still regret that). Soon it increased rapidly, I contacted the support and they mentioned that replacement is only within 15 days(Even a 50k iphone gets an year). After the first complaint technician came and updated the drivers and said "Sir, the issue will not come again now."Issue started in 2 days again, new complaint registered, same technician came and this time cleaned up the laptop and said "Sir, the issue will not come again now."Issue started in 2 days again, new complaint registered, this time technician came and replaced the motherboard and said "Sir, the issue will not come again now". The issue still persists. Can you please tell me what should I do to get this resolved. I am forced to restart the laptop in middle of my meetings to see whats on my screen at least twice a day.Thanks,Aayush

A:Vertical lines across laptop screen

Somehow technicians have visited you 3 times and they will come a fourth time if you call in and say it is not yet fixed. What would you like to see happen? Not that I can actually make anything happen. This is not HP Warranty Support but just fellow end users volunteering to help others. It seems the screen may need to be replaced.

I have an Acer Aspire laptop 5742-6458 that I bought last July. I use it regularly and just used it last night. When I turned it on just now, white vertical lines appeared about 3 inches from the left side. the lines seem to disappear if I press on the plastic backing. What might be wrong?

A:laptop vertical white lines

Could be a failing display or a short in the ribbon cable connecting the display to the main board.
but if it disappears when you press on the plastic bezel around the display it probably is the display itself going out or got damaged.

A few months ago a thin green vertical line started showing up in my screen from top to bottom whenever I would move the screen a certain way. When I'd stop moving the screen, the line would go away. Eventually this turned into 2 lines, with about a millimeter in between. Then red line started popping up. Now I'm at (from right to left) 2 green lines, a red line, and another green line, all really close to each other about 1/3 of the way away from the right side of the screen.

This would be ok if they only showed up when I moved the screen, and then went away. But now it takes a lot of gentle moving and nudging in order to go away. And sometimes the laptop is just sitting by itself, and it pops up out of nowhere. It's being a real pain to take out now, getting more and more stubborn each day. Soon I'm sure it's just going to stay there and it will be impossible to get rid of.

I called into HP and they told me to send the laptop in. I would, but I just started my second semester at college and I really do need my laptop. So I said I'd send it in in the summer and they said fine. The problem is, the more I wait, the worse it becomes. So anybody have any idea of how I can get rid of it?

By the way, the lines show up even when I'm just booting up my PC. They don't show up in an external monitor. So I'm pretty positive that there's something loose inside (especially since moving it around temporarily fixes it)

So any help is ap... Read more

A:Green and red vertical lines down my laptop screen

Sounds like your screen is going :S
Best idea is to go to a local computer repair shop and see if they might be able to fix it. Although you could take the laptop casing apart and check all the connectors are properly plugged in... Also, if the laptop has been dropping or knock could have cause some damage to the screen or graphics card (rare, but does happen )

Hello. I am new here and hoping that somebody might help me. I have a Toshiba Satellite L505 laptop. I have read the topics about vertical lines on laptop screens here but my case is different. I suddenly got these vertical lines all over my screen, about 1 pixel thick and 7 to 8 pixels apart and that when it appears, the system crashes and freezed. I tried to reboot but when the desktop icons start to appear then the red vertical lines also appear and that the system freezes again. When in safe mode, it works fine. So i tried to re-install the windows 7 32bit system from my package. After installation it works fine. But when I restarted my laptop again it showed red vertical lines and system crashed. Everytime this happens I have to re-install my windows 7 again and again just to use my laptop. For now, I don't shutdown my laptop because i know that when I will start it up i will have the same problem again and will have to re-install. I don't think that this relates to loosed connections or overheating because I never shutdown my laptop for a week now. I also tried to open my laptop to inspect the graphic card (ATI Radeon) but I cannot find it, perhaps it is integrated to the motherboard? I noticed that something triggers this vertical lines to appear like: (1) running MS DOS programs; (2) hibernating, idling and dimming to save power; (3) restarting; and (4) when administrator permission pop-up appears. Now I am avoiding these actions to prevent system freeze and... Read more

1) A couple of months ago 3 vertical lines have appeared on left of laptop screen.  Then the last couple of weeks all of a sudden the entire screen turns into a grey color with vertical lines.  Happened three times already and don't know what to do.  Not too computer saavy (I'm a senior) and will bring it in for repair but I don;t want to get cheated and want to be at least knowledgeable on what it might be.  Read something about an inverter (don't know what this means).  When this happens I obviously turn off the pc wait a couple of minutes and turn it back on.  Just do not know what is causing this. Perhaps I need to change the screen, is this costly? 2) Also I'm on a wireless network and the pages sometimes have a delay in loading or it says it's not connected.  Have called my provider and they do not know what the problem is.  Fox six mos their service worked fine, all of a sudden it doesn't and of course they blame my pc.  Would anyone know why this would happen intermittently ? Thanks in advance. Appreciate all of your help..........

I put in a new hard drive in my laptop and now every time it starts up the whole top right quarter of my screen has different colored vertical lines. I put the old hard drive back and still have the same problem. I checked the cable connection to the motherboard and it is fine. Is it possible that I somehow damaged the flex cable that goes to the LCD or could it be something else?

Is there a generic flex cable to the display that I could buy somewhere?

A:Vertical Lines On Laptop Screen: Is Cable Damaged

Hi sparkplug

It could be a loose connection on either end of the cable or a connection to the lcd screen itself being loose. Does your laptop have a connection for an external monitor? If so hook one up and see if it has a problem. Also try opening and closing the screen section and watch to see if there is any change i the display. Laptops usually have no generic parts and you will need to contact the manufaturer for any replacements. Posting the make and model of your laptop can help others here give you better advice.

I'm trying to determine the likely cause of a (minor, for now) laptop display problem that has recently started on my Compaq Presario M2000 notebook running Win XP SP2.

A few weeks ago a single, vertical (extending the entire height of visible screen), blue-green, one-pixel-wide line appeared on my 3 year old (out of warranty) laptop. It is about 3 inches from the left edge of the screen.

Doing a 'print screen' screenshot does NOT capture the line in the image.

It went away once briefly, but has been there at all times since and seems like it is now a permanent fixture across my screen.

Do you think the cause of the problem is the **LCD screen** beginning to fail?
Or is there a way to troubleshoot my **graphics drivers/cards** to see if they are the culprit?

A second line about 1/8 inch away has now appeared.
Is this growing problem an indication that my display will completely die soon, or is this problem not a precursor to anything more serious and I should not be concerned if I can liv with the tiny lines?

Thanks for any advice you have on this.

A:Laptop screen has developed two, vertical, blue/green, one-pixel-wide lines

The fact that a printscreen did not capture the line would indicate to me that it's a hardware problem.
Is the graphics card driver up to date?
I am guessing here, but could the battery on this machine be failing?

I'm almost positive it's not a driver issue, as I have updated, rolled back and reupdated the GPU and monitor's drivers.

Recently, blue lines start to appear a few pixels to the right of thin black areas (more often than not, text and the mouse cursor), but only if white is the background. I'd demonstrate with a screen shot, but the monitor itself does this, not the software. I might take a picture with my cell phone to post it up if need be.

It happens randomly and it stops on its own as well, but I have not been able to find the cause. It's not as if I've been doing heavy gaming lately that my GPU would react harshly. Does anyone have some thoughts?

Just out of warranty(of course). Recently i noticed these moving bubbles(circles) that are gray and white translucent popping up on the left side of the screen and when they do mouse take on a life of its own and windows start opening and closing and all hec breaks loose like the laptop is possessed. then just as quickly it sometimes stops on its own- other times if i move the screen a bit forward or backward it stops.Other times thicker vertical bars show up along with the circular bubbles and again the laptop freaks out and windows open and close and shrink and enlarge without me even touching the mouse pad. All drivers are up to date-even bios and all win10 updates are fine as well. No new software added at the time or since the issue.It happens sometimes and not always.If i move the screen all the way back and put pressure on it the black likes will show up.Not always but sometimes. My feeling is this has something to do with the cable that connects the screen to the main part of the laptop but i just dont know how to get to it to maybe seat it better if it is the issue...if anyone has any ideas please do let me know.Thank you

From yesterday or so a similar line started appearing at the bottom too. Both of these line will come and go every 2 or 3 sec. And screen will jump a bit (like say 5 pixel or so roughly) and it will also shake sometimes which makes letters difficult to read.
The problem exists everywhere, even in boot screen. In short when I press power button and screen start displaying something problem also starts.
Today I connected an external lcd monitor via vga cable and it works fine. No line and no flickering. So I guess GPU is ok?? What could be the problem?? Could it be just loose contact or something in laptop screen cable?

And since I'm outside the warranty period anyway is it okay if I open my laptop and try something?

Hello Every One
I have Windows 8 with Outlook 2007 as e-mail.
In the old XP days when ever I received e-mail with that annoying vertical line down the side of the page it was simple enough to get rid of them by using the instructions below. Now of course in this modern world things are different with tool bars turning into ribbons. When I open the e-mail there is no View.
Can some one, if it's possible convert the XP instructions below into Windows 8 please. arram.

Lets see if this helps: Open the email and click Forward: Now, click View on the Menu Bar: Now look for SOURCE at the bottom tab and click: Now look through the SOURCE CODE and find a selection that starts with something called <BLOCKQUOTE>Now, if there is one line in the email you should see it once. For each blue line you will see it listed. Highlight each line in the screenshot below and delete:

Have you tried this?

There is another way in Outlook to do this which is even easier. Outlook has keyboard shortcuts to “Clear Formatting”: CTRL+SHIFT+Z or CTRL+SPACEBAR. Either of these methods will remove the blue vertical line.

Discovered purple/blue vertical lines going down my laptop. At the very top the lines are very dark... as the line down down the line gets fainter and looks invisible but in some random spots there is some dark spots. Its probably about 10 pixels wide. The first time I turned it on it was a solid blue line all the way down but now it is blue and purple for the most part and varies in visibility through the day. Not sure if this is a video card issue or the LCD monitor. Any comments to fix or what is wrong is appreciated. Thanks!

I remember the day before they appeared I had my laptop closed but was still on sleeping for quite some time. Just did the same thing for a couple hours right now and went and checked on it and the lines appeared darker. Not sure if theres any correlation there but thought itd be worth nothing.

I hope someone here will be able to help, or at least tell me what the problem is.

I'm using an Acer monitor (AL1916W). It's about two months old, give or take a week, bought new. It was working fine until this morning, when the screen occasionally flickered before fading into single and multi-pixel vertical coloured lines. I don't have a picture, but the coloured lines are the same colours as my desktop wallpaper (greens and browns, mostly) and fill the screen.

I turned the monitor off and turned it on again. The display was fine for about ten seconds before it faded into the vertical lines again. Changed resolution and refresh rate - same thing. Restart - same thing. Changed cables - same thing.

Everything else works fine - I'm using the computer to listen to some music at the moment, with the monitor off. I tested a game and a few other programs and they worked fine, with the exception of the display.

Specs: Athlon 64 3200+, ABIT AV-8, Radeon 9550 128MB, 1GB RAM. Most of the parts are between 1-2 months old.

If it isn't already painfully obvious, I'm not that great with computers

A:Vertical coloured lines

hi, does the vertical line always stays there and it doesnt disappear no matter how many pictures do you choose? if its true, maybe the only way to remove this line is to check and use the ATI catalyst software. (sometimes the trouble come when its there and vice-versa)
btw if you find a same vertical line in other monitor under same pc, its definitely the ati9550 problem and the problem come similar to me using M9700.

Hi, I am after some advice. I have a HP Screen, which has developed 4 vertical lines down the screen. 3 lines are blue and one is red. Whilst carrying my screen from the carpark to my office, it started raining. The lines appeared after this , I think this maybe due to water damage? I was wondring if this was repairable? Thanks in advance

I'm afraid it's not repairable.  Find your device in the following link to view the part number of the replacement screen. http://partsurfer.hp.com/search.aspx

As of last night, my desktop PC - Packard Bell - is not sending the proper signals to my monitor. All I get are vertical lines. I've tried the monitor on my laptop and the monitor works fine. What do I need to do to remedy the problem?

A:Monitor vertical lines

Hi and welcome to TSG.

Do these lines occur from the moment you turn the PC on? i.e. even on the POST screen before Windows even starts to load?

If yes, then the most likely cause is a failed graphics card.

I have vertical lines on my desktop pc. It looks 3d. It is not the monitor I checked that. It says it could be the video card. I dont think i have a video card. It is factory and the monitor cable is plugged in to a little box that is hooked on the mother board. What can I do to fix this. Do I need a video card installed, will that fix it?

A:Vertical lines on monitor looks 3d.

Hardware brand and model?

If it's displays images on a monitor, then it has a video chipset, regardless of whether it's an actual video card. And yes, most graphical display issues like this are typically a faulty video chipset or the power supply.

Ok, so I returned the old monitor that was giving me a weird brown spot near the bottom. However, the new monitor has white lines going down the middle of it (very faint mind you) and a discoleration near the edges. The monitor is a viewsonic (not great, but not terrible) and I doubt I would get two faulty ones in a row. AND, I do not notice these defects during the "windows Loading screen". So, is it simply video card settings? I have a new Radeon 9200. Any advice?

A:Vertical lines on Monitor.

Sound like it could be a driver problem.
See if u are using the latest drivers for the monitor and video card.

I have an older gateway computer that I had to replace the HD and the ram. Everything works flawlessly except one issue. When I boot the computer at startup (during bios also) there are a bunch of thick vertical lines making it hard for me to see bios or anything before windows loads. As soon as Windows loads up, they disappear. this was happening at first when i installed Windows XP Pro, but then it found the drivers for my VGA and it went away EXCEPT at boot. Any suggestions? This is driving me nuts because I want to get into my Bios and I can't see much with these lines.
