Problem with my Lenovo screen

by Blackrayderx / March 31, 2018 2:52 PM PDT

Hello Everyone, so for the past 2 months, i've been using these old speakers on top of my laptop, i screwed them on top of my desktop screen and it has been working perfectly, but one day, my dad had to borrow my speakers so i unscrewed them from my desktop , and the next day when i wanted to screw them back in, i don't know what happened maybe i screwed too deep and the screen turned completely black, so i decided to unscrew it but only half of the screen was working, and now i cant figure out a way to make it work, please help me, i am desperate.

Looks to me like you've been screwed.

At least one of those screws Has caused a malfunction. Seems like a shortout to me.

Sadly I agree.

The LCDs are usually split into areas with electronics to drive left and right. It appears your work has damaged one side. You have to follow the screw to where the damage is. But unlikely to be fixed except by replacing the now damaged parts.

i understand but i don't know if you've noticed, it's not perfectly split in half, the biggest part is still working whereas the black part which is not working is only a small part, but on the web i only found people with the same problem as mine except that they have their screen perfectly split in half.
Ps: I dont know how to open the screen there are no screws, there are holes but no screws, or i can't see them

Wish it made any difference here.

Damage looks consistent with screen failure. There are folk that wish it didn't mean damage but I have to go with what you share and time to never screw into displays like that.

Are you saying these speakers were physically screwed on top of your monitor?
Have you tried monitor settings to get display back to normal?
I still think you got screwed.
