Laptop Screen and Graphic Problems
Graphic problems on laptops do not necessarily mean that a new screen is required.
It could be:
- Laptop Inverter – A laptop inverter is a small circuit board located near the screen that powers the screens backlight.
- CCFL (Cold Cathode Fluorescent Lamp) – A laptop display uses a CCFL for the backlight
- Screen Cable – This is a fine cable that connects the screen to the motherboard and breakdown of the cable can occur due to the movement of opening and closing the screen.
- VGA Graphics Chip – It is not necessarily the chip that is faulty; the most common problem is the connection between the graphics chip and the board due to overheating.
- Faulty Screen – A broken or faulty screen does not mean the end of your laptop. Our prices are competitive and we have fixed prices based on screen size.
Kent Laptops only uses branded screens and all of our screens have a “no dead pixel” policy.
A dead pixel is a white or black dot that will always be there. Some of the compatible screens that we have come across run a 10 dead pixel policy, which means that they will not take a screen back if it has less than 10 dead pixels. Imagine having 10 little white or black dots over your screen, we do not find this acceptable which is why we run a “no dead pixel policy”.
