Solved half of my screen turned into weird lines

October 16, 2013 at 12:57:23
Specs: Windows 7
half of the screen simply has weird bars or sometimes black some orange lines down the middle too its a monitor issue i think because it's there when i'm shutting down and only off if the screen is off or asleep if i press down on the area though under my screen it temporarily goes away so i dont think anything i install will help (it doesn't show up on screen pics as far as i know)

Substitute the monitor with another one. If that one works okay, well there's your answer (new monitor required).

✔ Best Answer
Mostly you can add an external monitor, which would help prove the point. It doesn't sound like a software issue to me. Monitor or Display Module are most likely.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Or possibly a loose or damaged cable/connector since pressing below the screen fixes it temporarily.

"if i press down on the area though under my screen it temporarily goes away

Oops, my bad, somehow I missed that. Whenever pressing something changes symptoms it means that the fault is at or near that area. This makes is almost certainly a damaged cable or loose connector as THX 1138 points out.
