Problem T530 (Vertical thin blue line) HELP!

2012-10-29, 21:40 PM

Hello Folks,



I just bought my T530 in July/August. I have been loving it so far.

While I was working on my laptop this morning, a sudden thin blue pixel line showed up (left corner of my screen).

What should I do?  I have the regular insurance packet that came with it nothing extra...


I have never shipped back a laptop. How does this process work, and what are my next steps.


Thank you people.

I am pretty nervous about this issue. I am a student, and can't afford losing this laptop for a long long time.

yout first is to call Service.

after verifying your warranty, they'll likely step through some troubleshooting and problem confirmation steps. if your pc needs to go to depot for repairs, they'll dispatch a prepaid shipping box to you. i believe it's still overnight shipping both ways. you can also ask them if there's a carry-in center near you.

There are no magic wands in the community to effect hardware repairs.


Call support for a repair case # and they'll indicate your opinion base on the warranty accompanying your system.
