    Vertical colored lines on screen?? HELP

    my screen for some reason is only displaying vertical colored lines.. its a 640x480 color datalux 10.4 lcd. it still detects a vga signal since when I power on the computer it detects the signal and turns on the backlight. but it only displays these vertical colored lines, reguardless of if the lcd is backlit or not. it used to just be black when off, now these lines reguardless. HELP!!!!!!

    Im not sure the carputer thing is all its cracked up to be:

    GPS: there is no automotive version of any gps software so we are foced to use cumbersome desktop versions which arent too friendley for cars. they work, yes, but they are a pain to controll in a car

    Audio: I have not found ANY good usb sound cards, and even the audigy 2 nx lacks bass like a regular stereo produces. crap!

    Video: is it even worth it to use 800x600 on a 7" screen??

    Games: who just sits in their car and plays games. if you have time to do this, get a life!

    Power: its a PITA to get power from 12v, esp if your perifrials use a different voltage. I have a laptop so I have to make voltage regulators for everything..


    end of rant

    I was ****ed when I wrote this thread, so if I sound like a dork thats why. a carputer is cool and can be made to work good, but I was just mad at all the little things going wrong.

    I realize you were just in a bad mood, but CoPilot does indeed seem to be made for the car...Just don't want any newbies to read your post and get discouraged
