If your Mac is covered under AppleCare+, the cost should be substantially less. A cracked screen with AppleCare+ currently costs $99 to repair. AppleCare also covers two incidents of accidental damage, which should include this specific issue.
Hello, A few days ago I was shocked to open my Lenovo Thinkpad x1 carbon and see a damage area at the top of the lcd screen. I think I damaged it by carrying it with one hand. The current size of the problem rectangle is 3 inches wide and 3/4 inches long at the top of the screen, near the middle. A couple friends told me not to close the lid, touch or move the screen. I did this. A computer guy visiting said the screen was cracked. After observing (and praying) for a few days, the black patch at the top center of my screen has not enlarged. It seems settled. All black. I am able to do all my laptop work, being creative with information under the black area. So, do I need to replace the screen? Will the black rectangular area get larger? Thank you for any information you can give.
ok so i have a dell computer i dont know the brand or anything but my computer works fine. when i press on the middle it makes cracking noises, and its easy to open it! ive gotten it repaired for many things, like computer gliching and a broken screen but the normal screens ok but im a little worried
However the only interesting fact that you state your snipping tool shows these lines does not make sense, as they way these work, they do not know these lines are present. Do these lines also appear if you connect the computer to a different monitor or TV. If the answer is yes, your problem is the laptop itself and possibly a virus that is simulating a screen defect.
I have an Acer aspire V5. Today when i opened the laptop I noticed today that there is a 4 centimeter black vertical line on the right side of the screen. I connected the laptop to an external monitor and black band does not show up on the monitor, i can see the whole computer screen on the external monitor but not on the laptop i can only see about 80%. Since it is a touchscreen i noticed that the screen still registers my inputs.
Here is a relevant article with good pictures to illustrate whats happening: +touchscreens/Sounds like you need to replace the touch-digitizer only, the LCD is not affected. Unfortunately we do not carry the digitizes for that computer.
Thank you for helping me to understand that a broken screen will have splotches or cracks in the glass. My laptop has had a broken screen ever since I accidentally dropped my backpack last week. I need to find a computer repair service that can repair my laptop for me.
Hello, I was wondering if you could answer my question today. There is a black splotch of ink like liquid on my screen, and when I push on it, it looks like there is a root or virus like line that spreads further throughout the screen. When the liquid has fully succumbed, it seems that a black and blue mark is on my screen. The screen is not cracked, or has been damaged at all to my knowledge, and I just wanted o know what it was and how I could fix it. Thank you! (by the way, the computer i not touchscreen either.)
Hello Matteo,This would be a screen that has unfortunately been physically damaged. LCDs will not appear cracked as if they were glass but more so have black blotches and streaks as you have described. To fix this issue you will need to replace your screen.
Hello sir, I have acer laptop on which I accidentally stepped with knee and the screen cracked internally. Now when I turn it on I am only able to see cracks and nothing else. Can this be fixed without going to any repair place. How do I fix it at home? And how much it would cost me for repair at home or at repair place approximately.
An impact would break the glass, but also cause the two pieces of the break to separate enough for the liquid crystal to bleed out between the layers, causing a black 'ink' appearance in the impact area. In this case, there isn't. ( I have never seen an example of a screen broken through physical impact that did not have this bleed through, even on google image search )
Hitting the edge of the screen will do it, but it could be something from a shelf above that fell on it, accidentally running into the edge of a desk causing it to fall to the floor, or it could intentional damage with a hard object wielded by an emotional person. That black area at the top looks like it might be close to the point of impact. Any bezel damage? Obviously if the bezel is damaged/cracked, its more cut and dried that something hit the screen or the screen hit something.
My chromebook shows certain apps and search engines as if they were being displayed on a cell phone which gets in the way of me playing mobile games because it thinks my computer is a phone which it is not because it doesnt have touch screen.
Sounds like the connection to your screen is going bad. This happened to me once. You can take apart the body of the Chromebook to see if the cable is loose. If it is cracked / split, you will probably need to get a new Chromebook.
If you're using your computer and the monitor screen suddenly stops working, it's key to figure out if it's the computer or monitor that's having the problem. Diagnosing what is wrong and fixing it is a lot more complicated than simply determining if you have a blown monitor or a broken computer. The easiest way to determine if the monitor is broken is to test it with other devices and parts and see what stops working.
The fastest way to rule out if your monitor is bad is to test it on another computer. Disconnect the monitor from your computer and connect it to another properly functioning computer. If the monitor turns on correctly and displays what's supposed to be on the screen, you can rule out the monitor as the source of the problem. If the screen doesn't kick in within a few seconds, try using the working monitor's connection and power cables, connecting only the test monitor to the computer and rebooting the test computer to eliminate every variable other than the monitor. If the monitor still doesn't turn on, it is most likely blown. This test will not work for laptops.
You can try connecting another monitor to the computer to test it against the monitor in question. Use the same cables your monitor used, connect only the new monitor to the computer and reboot the computer to test it. If the new screen turns on and works correctly, your monitor is likely blown. The computer is likely at fault if there is no signal at all going to the new monitor. Laptop computers usually feature a video-out VGA, DVI or HDMI port that can be used to test the laptop with an external monitor.
Visual display errors may be caused by the computer or the monitor. The display is blown if the screen is physically cracked or has an ink mark. If the monitor turns on and displays an image with vertical or horizontal lines across the screen, it could be broken. This may be caused by a damaged connection; address this problem by straightening any bent connector pins and replacing cables. If this doesn't work the monitor's connection port is probably damaged. If the screen turns on and you see a jumbled mess of an image, the monitor is probably fine and the problem is with the computer's video card.

It's been over two decades since CGI came careening through the silver screen to murder cops, lawyers, and other civil servants in Terminator 2 and Jurassic Park. Since then, both films have been praised for their inexplicably realistic effects, even though both movies have birthed a handful of sequels with much more powerful special effects technology at their disposal. Despite the fact that Terminator Genisys and Jurassic World are brimming with CGI that is objectively more realistic than the original films from the early '90s, so many people (myself included) seem to agree that the effects in the originals look better than the slick computer graphics of the modern sequels.
There's no edge to shooting Velociraptors like a pod race. It doesn't serve any purpose beside making me disappointed in creatures I used to pretend to be when I was 10 and sometimes at 30. This is one of many situations where having a camera that can pass through any physical object on-screen detracts from anything on-screen having any kind of presence -- it's just another reminder that what you're seeing isn't real, like that cavernous goblin-shanty from The Hobbit:
In these cases it's not that the CGI is undetailed or shitty, but rather that it's all-encompassing. The creatures aren't bursting into the real world because there's no real world to penetrate. Instead they shot some extras over a green screen and stuck them at the bottom like a particularly bad episode of Mystery Science Theater. And as directors opt for more and more digital sets, suddenly every movie looks like regular people inserted into a computer-generated cartoon, instead of CGI elements dropped into a real world. Even Jurassic Park III knew that when you're putting a digital creature into a real environment, you don't just say "fuck it" and make everything CGI. And seriously -- how many times do I have to use Jurassic Park III as a positive example? That entire clown show of a movie was incited by a parasailing accident.
If USB Debugging got enabled before your screen broke, it allows you to access your phone through a computer with a USB cable without asking for permission. However, the function is not on by default and is usually disabled. You need USB debugging activated to connect your phone to your PC. However, a broken and unresponsive black screen lacking touch functionality makes it almost impossible to enable debugging. First, you must connect the device to your TV to use it as the display before you can connect it to your PC for data backup. Therefore, ensure you check out the steps mentioned above before connecting your phone to your PC. 2b1af7f3a8
