..please try visiting the graphics card manufacturer's site and downloading, then installing an updated driver for your specific card. It may help if your current driver has become corrupted. The graphics card manufacturer can be found in Device Manager, under the "Display Adpater" listing, "Driver" tab.
Generally, if the display suddenly starts having issues, it's the cabling from the motherboard to the screen or the screen itself. Either one will require actual repair and that can be expensive unless you've got an extended warranty..
Hope this helps.
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.
