I have had my white NC-10 for about 6 weeks now, and so far it’s worked like a charm, running XP and windows 7 on it fine.
However, when I turned it on this morning the screen was covered in artifacts and had a blue tint. This occurs in the bios as well as in either operating system, so it’s not software related.
I have found that it only occurs when I tilt the screen past a certain angle, so I suspect the problem is a loose connection between the graphics chip and the screen.
My question is, has anyone dismantled an NC10 and found where the screen’s ribbon cable runs? And would it be possible to fix this problem (assuming it is a loose connection) without RMAing the laptop?
Thank you for any help,
Damn… I just got my blue NC10 yesterday and I just developed a nice 1 pixel wide yellow line down the right side of my screen. It runs from the top all the way to the bottom about 1.5 inches from the right edge of the screen. I just finished talking with Newegg and I have to ship the system back to them for exchange. Even though I live about 20 minutes away from them, I can’t drive over and make the exchange.
What a pain!
Oh well… That’s life I guess.
I hope you get your screen sorted out.
I would send it in to get it fixed.
If you open it up then you void the warranty, and there’s no guarantees than you will be able to fix it yourself.
