1/2 of the screen in my laptop is blurry

Hi experts,

 I have an HP Inspiron and 1/2 of the screen is perfectly fine but the other half is blurry. When I go into bios everything is fine. What can be causing this?

Put the screen resolution back to the factory default

Ok, I'll try that but I made a mistake and it does show blurry even in bios or diagnostics.

In this case try to give the notebook back, because it is most likely a hrdware error.

In case it is not HP but dell Inspiron, try to look for service tag on the bottom of your laptop and on the dell website you may look for waranty dates and support (they will ask for the service tag)

test if it happens also with an external monitor.

When you hook up the external monitor and if the screen appears 100% correct, you will know you have a bad display unit and it needs to be replaced.

HP is pretty good on making service manuals avaialble.

If you are going to replace the screen (if necessary) Goog on "servcie manual HP inspirion <model number>"

What I do when servicing a laptop is to take a piece of paper and draw circles on it.  When I remove screws I label the circle with the chapter number and put those screws in it.

That way you can keep your parts straight and get it back together correctly.
