Dell Latitude E6410 lines on screen.
« on: January 22, 2016, 07:21:53 pm »
One moment every second row of pixels from 10th row from the top turned grey on the LCD screen with this odd color swamping from top to bottom and first line flickers. One of the guess is that the video chip between the processor and display is dead, cause the VGA output worked well. Any ideas what would be the cause?

reflow the bga video chip for all laptops from any manufacturers that are 3+ years old is most of the time the solution to this kind of problem
a simple reflow will fix it for at best one year
a complete reball will fix it for more time.

bullshit
reflow will fix it until the first time user actually uses GPU (runs a game/program loading gpu)
reball will be the same, because defect is IN THE GPU

I said "most of the time" ... ;)
I've fixed dozens of laptops this way (but not that particular model)

Those symptoms don't seem like GPU/VRAM to me, especially if the VGA output still works. It could be the screen or the LVDS cabling.

Without knowing the subtype, not all E6410s used NVIDIA chips.  I suspect the majority had Intel GPUs.  This sort of failure looks more like a display vs GPU failure to me.  Perhaps the easiest fix is just to find a similar system on ebay and swap parts.  I'm not sure which screens were offered on that model, probably just one or two resolutions.  At the time only the 15" models had lots of choices.  Anyway, my guess would be a failed connection but I would also suspect it won't be easy to fix.  This is not a well educated guess but I have spent some time working on the somewhat related E6500 systems and the earlier Latitudes.
