    Default Glitchy screen

    My screen has lines running through it. It's not just for a specific program but the whole time my computer is on. I think I might have to get it repaired. Any of you guys know a way for me to troubleshoot it myself?

    Try a different resolution or try degaussing it. I'm not an expert on this so go here and see if it helps

    Most likely if you test it in safe mode and you stil have those lines then it's time for a new monitor

    Oh if it's a laptop then try this:

    It sounds like bad contacts between the driver electronics and the display itself. One relatively easy test for this problem is as follows:

    With the unit on, gently grasp the left and right edges of the display. Gently twist the display (no more than a few ounces of pressure) as though you are wringing out a towel. See if the display flashes, changes, etc. This may even fix the problem by "wiping" the contacts of dirt or oxidation.

    This is from the mouth of a LCD repairman

    But if you have warranty then I guess you should make the most of it

    Barring the two posts above mine, this thread is pretty damn useful.
    Dear cousin choppitychop89, you were a good relative, though I hardly knew ye.
