I fear my laptop is dying and wondered if anyone had any ideas about how I may be able to save it, or if I've just done something funny to it.
The screen part appears to be on the blink - the colours are going, last week the colours would go funny and then come back into focus/sharpness of their own accord. This week they are just wrong. Photos look terrible etc etc etc.
Any thoughts anybody? Is it dying? I've tried adjusting brightness to no avail.
Could I attach to a monitor while I sort it out?
After Sprog 4 had a screen issue with her lap top and used it plugged into her TV for a couple of weeks and it was OK whilst she got sorted with a new laptop....
could be the video card - see what happens when you attach a monitor. if it's still the same, it means the video card is on the way out
if monitor is fine, then it could be the screen - they are replaceable easily enough (I replaced a broken one on my notepad recently - 20 mins)
i had a lot of trouble with mine freezing so put it back to Factory condition and it worked now as good as new
