Are you seeing vertical lines on your laptop screen? Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Here’s how to fix it.

Firstly, you need to enter BIOS to understand whether it’s a hardware or software issue. Restart your PC and press the BIOS key when the PC starts. If you see the vertical lines, then it’s a hardware issue, and you will have to take it to the nearest service center. The issue may be with the ribbon cable of your laptop, which connects the laptop screen to your motherboard. If it’s damaged, then you need to replace it. After replacing the ribbon cable, reconnect your laptop to the power source and turn it on.

If you don’t see the vertical lines, then it was a software issue and can be fixed with the other solutions shown here. Now that you know it’s a software issue, try cleaning boot. Press Win + R hotkeys to launch Run. Now enter msconfig in the command box and press the Enter key. From the system configuration window, select the Services tab and check the Hide all Microsoft Services box. Click on the Disable all option for disabling all the services running in the background. Close the window and right-click on your Windows Taskbar. Select Task Manager and go to the Startup tab. Right-click on the Apps in the Startup tab and select the Disable option to disable them. Finish the process and reboot your computer.

Next, check if you are using the recommended display resolution. Right-click on a space on your desktop screen and select Display Settings. In the settings window, go to the right pane and click on the drop-down menu for Display Resolution. Select the recommended resolution.

After setting the display resolution to the recommended settings, you need to update the graphics driver. Right-click on the Start menu and select Device manager. Expand the Display Adapters section.
