Broken Graphics and Screen on my Laptop

LoneRangir 80 18 November 14, 2015 at 04:28 PM
I have two separate issues with my Lenovo Yoga 2. The left part of the screen is all garbled as seen in this picture.



Also, the glass screen is broke. The digitizer acts "goofy", with all kinds of "ghost touches". I can live with disabling the touch. Is there a practical way to fix these two issues?

I can most likely live with the second issue, but losing ~20% of the screen is untenable.

Any help would be appreciated.

i don't know how to fix,

but you can set a smaller custom resolution that only fits the good part, set to no scale by GPU, move the position in Video card driver

not sure if your video card has this feature

I'm afraid that it won't solve the screen garbling issue, since that was present prior to the glass being cracked. What causes the garbling?

Have you tested an external monitor to see if it displays correctly?

so its likely the display is bad...maybe a cord inside..it will likely be remedied by the new screen.
