R500 screen



Bought the R500 in 2010, thinking I am buying a solid, dependable, long lasting laptop. Guess I was wrong.


When power up the laptop, the screen is blank well not quite. There are 2 horizontal lines and then there are tons of vertical lines. It runs for a bit but then it goes into sleep mode. I reboot it and still get the same.


Any ideas what is causing this?

I think most likely faulty screen or cable.

If you have discrete graphics, I would guess VRAM or GPU failure.
