I have an Acer TUF Gaming FX504 that is having issues with the display. Whenever I turn on the laptop, over half the screen is a mess. I can't see what is on the display. The problem sometimes goes away after a few seconds, but usually I have to force shut down and wait a few minutes. I think the problem is heat related, but I'm not sure. Is there any way I could fix it myself?

I'm not really experienced in laptop displays, but i'd say possibly a flaw in some of the bulbs?

I think if there was bad bulbs then there would also be a bunch of blown out pixels. I think that the problem is most likely something to do with heat dissipation. This laptop did only cost $600.

Sounds to me like a messed up driver. If you recently updated the laptops display driver, revert to the old driver and see if the problem persists.

 

If you have not recently updated drivers, please do so. 

 

If it is heat related, you can monitor using HWMonitor. This will give you temperatures on board and around the laptop to see if it is that. 

 

Let us know what you discover.
