Hi midoof_2004 and welcome to the community,

Hope this help you and let us know how you get on

Re: lenovo ideapad510 screen show faint vertical lines on blackbackgrund

That's called image retention/image persistence/ghosting; any bright graphics left for a few minutes(?) will temporarily "burn" into the screen.

 

It's true that (cheaper) IPS technology can have issues with this - but I wouldn't accept it as standard behaviour, unless it is mentioned/demoed at the POS or so.

 

LG IPS displays have become infamous for this in last few years (namely the Apple macbook case).

 

(I witnessed my still-standing, idle laptop screen suddenly flicker and turn into a ghosting, tinted one - right before my eyes. Few months out of warranty, I am considering options.)
