|I am having a unique problem with a laptop. The text appears "broken." By broken, I mean it looks like part of some letters are missing. My dad says it looks like a page from a typewriter that needs a new ribbon, but I am too young to have used typewriters. |
- It is an HP laptop, and its graphics card is NVidia GeForce 7150M/nForce 630M
- When using Internet Explorer, the problem can be fixed by increasing the size of the font to 200%.
- On the desktop, some icons have a faint blue tinge over part of them. (e.g for Google Chrome, the "Chro" is white, and the m is blu-ish, and the e is white. the shade of blue matches what you see when you click on it)
- When the computer is accessed via LogMeIn, there are NO video issues.
- the screen was recently replaced.
- the problem is random. sometimes the font/color appears normal, though the problem does seem to be occuring more and more frequently.
- I have tried different screen resolutions, as well as increasing/decreasing the DPI. This does not help. I have also tried changing the settings in the Nvidia control panel. None of the settings I tried made any difference.
It's obviously not the video card (since it works on LogMeIn without issue) or the inverter (since the screen is having no dimming/"hard to see it") issues. I just put a new screen in. I am thinking by process of elimination, it must be the display cable. I am really hoping not, because this was a pain in the a** to get apart. I don't relish the thought of doing it again. Any other ideas?
