I have an Acer Aspire 1800 laptop

i hav very fine lines going vertically down the left hand side of the screen approx 50mm across

any ideas please

booting the laptop into the BIOS or into Safe mode..
If the lines are still there you have a Hardware fault..
If they are not there in the BIOS, try reinstalling your graphics driver.

Are you in the mood to dismantle it?
It may be no more than the ribbon connector betwixt screen and main board needs firming up.
But it could be more.

So try the first suggestion if in the mood or off the the repair shop and big bucks

Is it possible the laptop has taken a knock? The Backlight or diffusion panel could have been dislodged.
