Hi
I have an IQON Laptop(Mostly Philips Components) running Windows XP Home with 1 GB of memory and a Intel Celeron Processor.

The problem I have is when I start the laptop up half (the Right Hand Side) of the screen is distorted (see attached pictures), however if I hold the screen at or around the catch which hold the screen shut when I close the laptop or to the Right of it the screen appears OK.

It has not been dropped or roughly handled, if I put a paper holder on the top of the screen, the screen is fine and I can use the laptop OK. (See Pictures).

Don’t think it’s the graphics card (but could be wrong) as when it the top of the screen is pinched together its fine

I have also connected the laptop to an External Screen and it came up fine
Anyone any idea of a probable cause and a fix?

Thanks
Toby

Clearly the laptop screen needs attention if the clip cures it. Forget anything else.

It all depends on whether you feel able to dive inside the works and attempt to fix it, otherwise it needs a new screen.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Sorry I tried to upload the Images, but for some reason it did not work.
How is it done on this site?

To upload pictures use an external upload website
Anyways back to ur issue, how old is the laptop ? since u connected the laptop to an external monitor and it came up fine i would start by thinking it could be a backlight or inverter needs fixing, its not the graphics card i doubt it is, u should take the laptop if its still under warranty and have them look at the screen

computers are a second home

The Laptop is a few years old and therefore not under warranty, so that's out the window.

I will try and see if this allows me to create links to the images:

If you put a clasp of some sort at the top of the screen everything is fine and if its removed the screen is there but it looks as though it's some sort of electrical interference is the only way I can describe it.

The third link from the bottom shows the clip that I have placed on the screen, which returns the screen to normal.

Hi
Think I will have a look on YouTube and see if I can locate any videos on how to get inside the screen, can't be that hard and have a look around, see if anything is loose or slack.

Think my main concern was wither it was a fault on the Motherboard or the Video card.
Think it was just a bit of reassurance that my diagnostic was correct and it was something to do with the screen.

I will report back once I have discovered that problem and fix.

Thanks Again

Toby
