Gateway FX 7811 laptop screen problem (pic inside)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
So out of the blue I turn on my laptop to see this!

450

It flickers, the stuff from the top of the screen is at the bottom, and there are some strange line distorion on the right. The screen is fine at the boot screens that only have text. Has any one seen this before? Any ideas what it could be? Thanks!

Try restarting and see if it goes away. If not, you most likely have a monitor cable that is loose and may just need to be reseated.

Second possibility is your graphics card may be going bad, try hooking up to an external monitor and see if the problem carries over. If the picture to the external monitor looks like that, then it's probably the graphics card.
