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.)


In random locations, at random times, my screen will flicker white lines across it with varying frequency. It because most frequent when at high RAM usage, just turned on, or charging at full battery for awhile. I tried sending it back once for repairs, but after a two month wait, it failed. I requested another repair, but tomorrow being my deadline, I believe I am unable to send it back once more. I attempted to contact warranty support, but after filling in my serial number thousands of times, the site believes I am possession of a Vibe series C phone. Is there any way I can fix this issue? Thanks in advance.

Hi One3 , 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
This solution may help from this article :

Update BIOS to V3.03 9ECN43WW (or later version). http://support.lenovo.com/us/en/downloads/DS100998
Update the Intel VGA driver.
Change the Panel Self-Refresh setting to ?disable? in the Intel HD Graphics control panel. (some versions do not have Panel Self-Refresh setting, skip this step.)

If the issue persists, hardware defective is highly detected. Please contact Lenovo local support center for hardware troubleshoot.
If the serial number would show mismatch from the website,  verify again from the label or use the auto detect feature but if that fails , provide a direct call to tech support . You may have the issue also documented that this behavior is an issue you noticed before warranty expires specially if the above solution did not work.

I have a hp split 13 x2 E8C05UAR#ABAWhen I use the tablet without keyboard and put it to sleep the white light near the charging plug flashes. I've checked the batteries and both are fully charged. Is this normal or a result of installing windows 10? While at sleep the white light will flash using up battery. If hooked up to the keyboard and put it asleep the white light on the keyboard near the charging plug flashes. Thank you for any information.

I have thin white lines running across the top of my screen. They don't move, they are just there. What should I do to get rid of them?

Welcome to TSG!

Could you tell us what type of screen (LCD panel, or CRT type)?
Did they occur suddenly?
Are all cables firmly plugged in?

Remember only you can see the lines, we can only guess, so the fuller the description of the problem the better.

Hey guys. The problem is that when I boot up my computer white lines appear all over the screen. It began happening after my computer crashed with white squares all over the screen. The white square crash happened before but all I had to do was restart my computer to fix it. Though this time the restart did not fix it. I've tried downloading new drivers but no luck. I have re-seated my graphics card but no luck. All the fans seem to be working. I also can't boot into normal mode as it crashes with the white squares after I get past the Windows XP loading screen. Though sometimes I can occasional get into Normal mode though the white lines are still all over the place. The white lines stay when I boot into Safe mode too. I have no idea what the problem is. I hope someone can help me.

Graphics Card: Asus Nvidia Geforce GTX 550Ti
PSU: 500W
Processor: I cant remember the exact model of the processor but I remember the start - AMD Anthlon II X2
Motherboard: I cant remember the exact model of the motherboard either but the make is Gigabyte

Since yesterday I have been seeing white lines across the screen of my laptop. I have a Sony Vaio CR120E early 2008 model. The white lines/band running horizontally across the screen is not permanent, and goes off if point pressure is applied from the top coverside of the screen, or on the face of the screen.

I did , open my laptop monitor and checked the data connection to the screen and the power supply, and they both look ok, although still on applying pressure the white lines go on and off.

Now I am not sure, it is an issue with the ribbon of my monitor or whole LCD monitor. Do note, that the lcd monitor do works fine sometimes. Please advise.

If possible connect a Monitor to the laptop and see if that shows a display. You may have to use a key combination to switch the display to the monitor, usually the Fn/Function key and one of the F keys on the top row (look for an icon like a laptop and a monitor screen on one of those F keys, or just try them all).

When I boot up win 98, I get approx. 50 white lines dancing across my screen.
I have a 17" Viewsonic VG175 monitor.
The white lines dance for up to an hour, diminishing little by little until they are all gone.
I dont know if this is a software problem or a monitor problem.
Has anyone come across this freaky thing before?
Thanks for you help in this mystery.

A:horizontal white lines

Next time you power up try booting up in safe mode which will use a different (default) driver and see if the lines are there. If the lines are still there in safe mode try the monitor on a different system to see if the problem occurs there. It sounds like a monitor problem to me.

I just bought a new PC. It have two GPUs, one on I7 cpu and GeForce GTX970. After new installation of Windows 7 everything was ok. I have installed all drivers for the motherboard and for the GPU. I started to have problems, when I wanted to try to play any newer games. I installed DirectX drivers and some Windows Redistributable Packages before running the game. Just when the game menu should open, I lost signal on my monitor. I could here the sound, but there was no signal. So I have rebooted the PC.
Since then I have white horizontal lines across the screen. They appear from the beginning of the booting process. Also in BIOS.
I heared from my friend, that the cause can be possibly that, the game changed my resolution and refresh rate for HD (120+ HZ and high resolution), which my older (~5-6 years) monitor can't handle. So here are the thing which I tried to do for now:
- I uninstalled the drivers with software designed for this purpose, both in normal and in safe mode and installed them again. There was no difference. Even when there are no drivers, I get white lines.
- I downloaded drivers from nvidia website and installed them, but since then I get in normal mode not white lines, but big white squares (big white "pixels") and the screen freeze few seconds after logging in to windows. In safe mode I have white lines.
- I run the PC in low resolution mode. I have white lines or squares, but the screen don't freeze. However, it doesn't solve... Read more

Hello all, I hope you can help. Today as I was playing a game, I experienced a problem when the game froze, and white lines going horizantally and vertically across my screen appeared. I restarted my PC and it was ok. Later playing a different game the same problem occured, so I restarted my PC again, however this time the intially screen and all following screens where not functioning correctly. The Asus screen had the white lines, the following screen to tell me windows did not start up properly is discoloured and staticy, and the windows loading screen had moving horizantal lines going down. After a few restarts I got it to work. Later on, Playing the same game as teh second time it happened again. However now, after the windows loading screen my pc goes black, and after a few minutes just restarts. If anyone could please assist me in fixing this, or diagnosing the problem, it would be appreciated. My PC is approximatly 3 years old. Asus motherboard, AMD 64 single core processor, and a Geforce 7600 GT. Up until today it was running smoothly.

Thanks for any help.

A:White lines and PC not starting

It sounds to me like your video card is overheating but it isn't that big of a card. My advice is that if you're able to boot to your desktop, to run a program like "HD Health" and see what the temperature of your system is. The problem seems like it started every time it was under a lot of work, and this would be my first guess.

Oh, and try booting to safe mode if you can. Just a thought.

Welcome elfinwood.

Just to clarify... It sounds as if you have been playing Second Life with your computer for a while, which has always worked fine, until recently, where you have this flashing screen problem? When does this problem occur? Is it after playing the game for a while or as soon as you start the game? Or does it start as soon as your turn on the computer?

If it is when you start the game, does it do it when you start other games (games that require good use of the graphics card/system)?

> When was the last time you updated your drivers?
> Have you changed anything before this started to occur, such as installing new updates?

Hi I have a lenovo g500 laptop running windows 10. It has recently started giving me a white flashing screen with bits of grey and vertical lines. It stays on and does not flicker.
I have to turn off the laptop to get the screen back to normal. Moving the screen back and forth doesn't influence it in anyway and all display drivers are up to date.
I have ran a hardware scan (with the lenovo solution center) on the graphics chip and it passed.
The graphics chip is an intel hd 4000.
What could be causing such an issue?

About 2 months ago, seemingly out of nowhere, a black spot appeared on my screen. I have had this laptop for about 2 years with no problems until the spot showed up. I presumed it was dead pixels, but was unable to fix it myself. The spot has now escalated into a huge white area with multiple blue and pink lines running both horizonatally and vertically. I have to struggle with the screen just to keep it from constantly turning pink and/or blue. I've attached a photo of what my screen currently looks like (put against a black background so you can better see the issue). It's very frustrating that it keeps getting worse even though I'm being as careful as I possibly can with my computer. This is my last ditch effort to see if there's possibly any solution to this problem before I just buy a new laptop altogether. It seems like a better solution than having my LCD display replaced, which I know is very expensive. Thank you for any and all help.

during boot up, or any time on hte computer, the screen will go white, or if i move it, shooting lines which can be resolved by moving it. if it goes completely white during time on the laptop, it is often a tedious job to get it to work. i know its something to do with the connection in the hinges, but i dont know how to fix this.
i really dont want to buy a new one, i have too much on here
please help!

A:Laptop keeps going white, sometime with shooting lines

If you are lucky, it's a loose connection. If you don't have any experience with laptop disassembly, I'd try to find a friend or competent tech to help. Worst case, you will need another LCD. Best case, they find a cable or connector hanging on by a thread and resecure it.

I have a laptop with a touchscreen and almost a year after buying it I would get black places with vertical white stripes on the screen. Sometimes they took up the whole screen, sometimes they were only an inch thick. They always seemed to be changing in size quickly and were always the full length of the screen. A computer mechanic said it was a short in the screen. It happened especially when I tilted the screen.

I sent it in under warranty and they replaced the LCD and updated the BIOS. Less than a week later it is starting to do it again just a little but it seems like it will get worse.

I do a lot of MS office for school and my sister plays the Sims 3 and free tv sites (but she doesn't download anything).

Please let me know if you need anymore information and provide specific steps on how to get it because I haven't gotten this lingo down, yet! Thanks!

Hi! I have a Asus Radeon 4890 that i have been running at stock clocks for a while now and everything has been working great. Recently ive tried overclocking it from a stock 850 to 950 gpu clock and 975 to 1100 memory clock. Everything worked fine until i tried Crysis, Then this happened: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6Y0NN09PzeM

As you can see a lot of white lines and such randomly flicker all over the place. I have no idea why this happens and it only happens when i overclocked my graphics card, and it only happens in Crysis. I first thought it would be the heat, but during the crysis benchmarking run it was on around 70*C, which i think is fine, but just to be sure i put the gpu fan on manual to 100%, and even on around 60*C this still happened.

Any of you people on here have any idea of what might cause this? and how i can fix it?


I just noticed this happens a little in GTA 4 too, but barely, can only see it if i pay close attention to it. It seems it happens when the Gpu has a lot of load

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.

I'm going out on a limb on this one and suggest it might be the beginnings of video card problems. The reason I say that is last year the folders in my Windows Explorer started having this funny shade of yellow. Even though everything else looked okay, the folders looked different.

As time went on other things started happening - colors not as bright, colors not showing! (green was black, etc.) so I got a new video card and all was well again.

Check your monitor, too. Another long shot, but better than no shot.

Hi Hajira,
Welcome to Lenovo Community!
I am sorry to hear that you are facing the issue with display as there are white circles.
Try to update the display drivers and check for the issue.  
Connect to the external monitor and check if there are circles in the monitor.
As you have also mentioned about the cursor try to reduce the sensitivity and update the touchpad drivers.
Hope this helps! Do post us back for further queries.

Blobs keep appearing on the screen that take over control of the mouse, act like right clicks and especially then on web browsers start acting as selections - not good when trying to do internet ordering or banking !  This can happen when the PC is initially booted up making it difficult on occasions to enter the password.  I have tried a number of remedies but none successful so any help much appreciated. I have :- used the PC Reset function to re-install the Windows 10 operating system whilst retaining personal files - no difference. - checked the drivers - all are the latest version. - run the full Lenovo hardware scan - nothing identified- run full scans by AVG, Malwarebytes and CClean - no viruses found- used a USB plug-in mouse rather than the wireless mouse   Any other ideas out there ?

Hi there. I have been searching for a solution to this intermittent problem and most posts don't seem to actually address the problem I have. Mostly people with limited knowledge suggest the obvious or don't really read hat the issue is. So here is the problem: I am trying to fix a friends laptop which is an ASUS X44L. Upon starting the laptop a white screen appears with horizontal lines (NOT VERTICAL). This seems to freeze on this screen unless I move the screen back and forwards or press the bezel on either side at the bottom. So I have done all the obvious things including updating all drivers, cleaning out any accumulated debris, pulling the screen apart to check the cables are OK and all appears to be good. Now this doesn't happen every time and the LCD seems to work perfectly with no other problems that are obvious so don't think the screen is cactus. About to see if I can check the GPU is seated properly. Any suggestions are much appreciated but please don't suggest things like malware as this has all been checked out and the laptop runs smoothly in every other respect. I am wondering if it is something to do with the bios not properly initiating the GPU but its just a guess?

Hi, I'm having trouble with seeing when loading windows. When I first turn my computer on, everything is good. I see my BIOS screen nice and clear. It loads the black screen that has the Windows logo with the loading bar under it, then when it gets to the loading screen, I just get a bunch of black and white lines and cannot see anything. The last thing I remember doing on the computer before this problem was updating drivers. So naturally, I went into safe mode and rolled back the graphics driver. That didn't work, so I reinstalled the graphics driver that came with my graphics card. still no success. I'm beginning to think that it's a problem with windows, not the drivers or card, since the BIOS screen is fine and I don't run into trouble until Windows loads the welcome screen. Does anyone know how to solve this?

I have just bought an expensive HP 2 in 1 lap top (15 inch Envy x360) and having set it all up I have found that about 80% of the time the screen displays flickering white dotted lines, usually vertical about an inch apart.  These are not continuous lines, but rather they are rapidly flickering very small dots - a bit like a pinstripe suit but more erratic.  When I am working on a white background (e.g. while writing this post) I cannot see it, but on a dark background e.g. watching a film or when opening the start meny, it is noticeable.   It is just about tolerable, but very irritating and is I think giving me a headache.   I have tried projecting to my TV as an external monitor and the problem persists, so it must be a lap top hardware or a software fault.   Does anyone have any tips as to whether and if so how I can put this right from home myself?  Please note whilst I have been using computers for c. 25 years I am not an IT techie so plain English would be helpful in any replies!  Many thanks all and Happy New Year.

I use Windows 7 Home Premium SP1.

I started using a new 17" 4:3 monitor. Afterwards, two white vertical lines (borders ?) appear on the two sides of the black content area of a few program windows when maximized.

For instance (IrfanView, whole screen): http://drkh.myweb.hinet.net/white_bo...ng_monitor.jpg

Is that normal?

The old monitor was also 17" and 4:3, but there were not those two lines.

Even if it's normal, I'd rather not see them. Can they be hidden?

I have tried "Personalize > Windows Color > Advanced appearance settings > select Border Padding from under Item > change size from 5 to 0". But that seems irrelevant.

A:Two white vertical lines on screen unseen before

It looks like the edges of the IrfanView window to me (i.e. I see them when I run IrfanView).

As far as I'm aware you can only get rid of them by going to "Full screen" view.

As I woke up this morning and turned my laptop in I noticed two stange white (not completely, their more like transparent light in a way) lines, but as their not completely white and I can still see colors I noticed that the upper one is a duplicete of the lower one. I experimented with my cursor for a while so Im absolutley sure, but Id like to know how is that possible and what could have caused such anomalia, maybe it could even be fixed.

Ill be glad to hear any opinions and advice. Maybe you even know similar white line cases and have an answer ready, please, share your knowledge.
