W7 duplicate screen glitch

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
My laptop just died because the battery and the plug got loose on it. I plug it back it and turned on my computer and it now shows duplicate screens on my display. I have no idea how to fix it. If you know, please help. Thanks.

From Woot:
It's a negative on the drivers. I tried using my 2nd monitor as the primary and it doesnt do this glitch. I think it might be a setting problem or maybe some hardware issue. Anyone have any tips?

I believe this to be a loose or defective lcd wire. If all else fails, you may need to open up the laptop and change the wiring.

I would recommend going to http://forum.notebookreview.com/; they are usually much more knowledgeable on laptop troubleshooting.
