I've just bought a new laptop and it's decided to have a fit at me and give me a pink vertical lines down any thing that has white on the screen....it does stop but then starts again....I haven't dropped it or shook it violently, i'm just wondering what type of problem it could be. I'm going to take it to be fixed as its under guarantee an all that just wanted to be armed with any suggestions. I don't want to look like an inexperienced fool. I wont be attempting any sort of fix myself of course, and yes, before you say it I HAVE shut it down completely waited about 5 mins and started again. Could there be something wrong with the solder in the chip things on the circuit board..... All in all I'm not happy!
