My laptop screen has been acting up for a month now. I replaced my laptop screen 6 or so months ago due to it being broke and everything was ok up until about a month ago. When I started up my computer today there were 2 vertical green lines on the screen. Sometimes there are green or pink specks on most of the screen. When the screen arrived and was installed it had a small green dot on the top left hand side (not sure if this is relevant or not). I have an Acer Aspire One D255 and was bought around December of 2010 or 2011 I can't exactly remember which year. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I really can't afford to take it to a computer repair shop right now because I'm going to have to bring my car into a repair shop because of issues with both front doors and the left blinker light. I think it's the screen going bad but not sure. I got it off of eBay and this is the screen I ordered: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=130708907314&ssPageName=ADME:X:RTQ:US:1123

Hello,

Try this 1

First try connecting an external monitor to check the display in it.

Check your internal connections once again.

The green line or red line in the middle of the screen indicates that the laptop

screen got damaged may be by dropping your laptop or by other mean. You

need a screen replacement. Sometime it appears and then disappears. But after

few days you will notice that this green line or the red line will remain forever.

You need to approach to your nearest service center.

Good Luck

Hello,
Try this 1
You can notice a 15 pin VGA slot ((there will be a monitor symbol) at the side of your laptop.
Click on the below hyperlink "VGA" so see how it looks like
VGA
Connect the external monitor to it and then switch ON your laptop.
Note: If you failed to get the display on the external monitor, then use the proper combination keys (like Fn+F5/ the function key that has the monitor symbol on it) to toggle between your laptop screen and the external monitor.
Good Luck
