i have an Acer aspire laptop, over the past few weeks a red "band" has appeared in the middle of the screen, at first it was very faint but has got worse recently. It appears toflicker when programmes are running and is not always present. any ideas?

See if it's present whenever the red pixels should not be illuminated. This sounds like a physical failure of the panel, I have one here with a single pixel wide blue line running down it. If I put up a white screen, which also uses the blue pixels, the line disappears.

Hi John,
it shows through on a white screen, it seems to flicker when the processor isn't at idle,
if that makes any sense
cheers

Does it go all the way through the screen or just part way? If it goes all the way through try squeezing the case just above it and see if it goes away.
