I have been given a Gatway Solo 9550 which is just beaut for my boat building workshop and runs win 2000 real well (and my cad program)
But, it has a significant display problem.
The left 1/2 of the screen is fine, bright, sharp, pic etc then the next 1" is a vertical strip of the start of the left side ( Start, programs, documents,etc and its a bit jumbeled ) then the remainder is a repeat of the left side again and reasonable clear.
There appear to be no really dead areas of display just repeats of left 1/2 side.
I connected another LCD display and it works fine with no mirror image.
I have removed inspected and reinserted the ribbon cable with no affect
I have updated drivers and have installed up to service pack 4(win 2000)
As I dont have another ribbon cable I could try to test individual wires with an ohme meter. From what I can find out, the video card is part of the mother board so any Ideas as to this problem any one or just a good guess might help (obviously Im trying to convince myself its not the LCD)
