Might be a refresh rate issue.

Try tapping F8 during boot and starting Windows via Safe Mode. Then go to Display Properties > Settings tab > Advanced button > Monitor tab.

Typically Screen refresh rate will be around 60 to 70 Herts. Depending upon what you find, you could try settings a little either side of these figures. Better still set it to whatever is specified for your laptop screen.

The reason I suggested Safe Mode is because presumably you can't read the normal screen.

Hi,


If you are using a LCD monitor then it may be possible that the LCD got a jerk and physically damage occurs. No solution is available for it, only you can change the screen of your LCD or change your LCD monitor.

Thanks

No problem - love it being confirmed that I am still sane (rather like a discharge certificate from a mental home).

Hey, it seems I now have magic powers to remove posts immediately. Could definitely be handy but I certainly didn't intend to remove yours.

Hi. Im having trobule with my Acer netbook screen. Fir some reason, when the screen is at 1020 x whatever solution, the left side of the screen is reflecting the right side. But when it is set to the 600 x resolution, it still reflects but have a black void in the middle. Should I get the netbook put in a shop or is there a way I can fix it myself. Thanks for the help .
