... how can it be "horizontal" if you see left side?

... "horizontal" would be top or bottom half!

... "vertical" would be left or right half!

... so its "vertical" left side you only see? ... click here to view related problems

... as you you hav'nt confirmed "horizontal" or "vertical" half after #3

... click and read >>#4 might help for horizontal problem.

... looks like new screen for vertical problem or hook-up a monitor to the laptop.

... tap <F8> <key> @ bootup select "Enable VGA Mode" (advance boot Options)

... and/or tap <Fn> <key> plus another key on the top row of keyboard which should have an icon displayed on it varies between makes, should be in manual.

<Fn> + <another key> to toggle between monitor and screen.

The monitor I conected too works when I press F8 and Enable Vga. But my Monitor an the Laptop is still the same, that means
that my Monitor is no good and need to be fixed??

... does it show only half screen when you enter your bios?

... if it still shows half a screen in your bios who knows you might be able to fix it by moving block connector in the screen. I managed to fix a brand new one with horizontal problem guessing it had been knocked in transit through the royalpost.

... I do'nt know about "x y" laptop screen axis, one can only try!

... if you see fullscreen in your bios post back.

Hi
Thanks again for all your help. I took the LCD Panel out from the
Laptop. It looks like the LCD Panel is no good, or can I just buy
a new Circut Board behind the Panel, I am also concernd about
the Inverter. Since I have half black and the other half perfect
so it has to be the LCD Panel Board, unless I can buy a used
LCD Panel. Please let me know What you think.

Thanks in advance Horst

... did you check "first" in the bios that full screen was kaput?

... find the part number my advice would be to not purchase anything extra untill needed infact I'd just use it with the monitor and save bucks.
