Graphics Problem ?

  rawprawn 18:39 10 Sep 2011

My computer has suddenly developed a vertical "Grey" stripe about 3 cm wide all the way through the centre of my screen. I have reinstalled the NVIDIA driver, but there is no difference. Any help appreciated RP

Should have said it appears on boot before anything is loaded

Do you have another monitor to try? It might be failing. If still there then the graphics card?

rdave13, no it is a laptop and all I have, if it is failing as I suspected I may be able to install a new one. Unfortunately I have just come out of hospital after an operation and may have to leave it until I feel better.

rawprawn. Can't help with your screen, but hope you feel better soon!

PS from Google : Either it os a LCD problem or it may be worth updating your graphics drivers via device manager.

john bunyan, thank you for your kind thought, I have already tried updating the driver with no success. My laptop is about 4 1/2 years old and well used

I have googled the problem and there doesn't seem to be a fix for my laptop (Age is a wonderful thing) it appears that some people have found it disappears and others say it's intermittant. Anyway there seems nothing I can do so I will leave it alone and try to ignore it. Thanks for your responses. RP
