    LCD Problem

    Hello
    I've searched but nobody had this problem on thos board.

    My problem is that when I turn my laptop on after couple of hours of not using it the LCD in it is mixing lines, the view is shaking, the START tray on the bottom of the LCD isn't on it. When I have a Completely white wall paper it shakes less, on a dark wall paper you cant almost see anything.

    This goes away after about 5-1o minutes (when it worms up)


    What should I do?? Is there anything I can do myself??

    I'll post pics if I will get my camera back

    The temperatur in the place where it is is about 17-19 C.

    Can it be something with the LCD ribbon(i think that's it called that way)??

    I dont know , But I wouldnt think. Did you try it in already warm place (like inside your home at 25 celcius or more)?

    Did you try plugging a screen? If the screen does the same thing than the lcd on your laptop is no the problem but the video controller or something.

    I'll have to take the laptop to o friend to try if it does the same thing an a normal screen.

    I'll also try new drivers for my grafics card.

    if i turn it on in a warmer place the effect is that it has less a "shaky" screen.

    it's almost a brand new laptop - but I lost the warranty because i unscrewed the computer and changed the cpu.

    Does anybody know how much does a 15,4" widescreen cost?

    Check ebay. It dpends on the laptop it self , you cant just use a lcd from another laptop unless its the same lcd (model).
