Laptop Screen Display Problem - Distorted Graphics
by Draco312 - 6/4/08 11:22 PM
My screen abruptly ran into the problem of a distorted display.
By distorted I meant that, graphics would look like they experienced color loss, as if my screen reverted to something between a 256 and 16-bit color display.
There would be pixels and lines would flicker nonstop. Text looks like it.
A comparison would be as if someone raised the sharpness very high, yet it's not quite the same thing.
The problem first happened very abruptly. I was probably just surfing the web when it started flickering from normal to strange, and back and forth a few times until it now remains distorted.
I've tried changing screen resolution, color, etc. Tried turning off the computer and back on, and it remains the same. I've tried taking a screenshot and sending it to a friend, who reported to me that the picture appeared normal to them. This led me to believe that it may be a screen problem.
Can anyone help? This laptop is less than a year old, and I don't abuse it or anything. The problem happened so abruptly while I was using it that I'm not sure what the problem is. Thanks.
