The Amazing Technicolor Notebook

  SebBux 14:48 31 May 2014


I have a MSI U130 Notebook which has stopped working.

Problem: When the Notebook is turned on it goes.

Red screen - green screen - blue screen - horizontal coloured stripe screen grey screen - grey and black stripe screen horizontal and width ways - black with thin white line around screen

Back to red screen and repeat

I have important files on HD so i don't want to reboot. Grateful for any help.

If it was a desktop I would say video cable is disconnected, so it sounds to me as if the ribbon cable to the screen as come adrift.

As far as I can guess, the problem is with the mechanics and is unlikely to be the Hard Drive itself, probably a Graphics Problem, but in its current condition you're not able to access the HD anyway.

Sometimes these problems resolve themselves when you reboot, possibly best done in Safe Mode.

If the worst comes to the worst, you can remove the Hard Drive and put it in a Caddy and then transfer its contents to another PC.
