I got really freaked out when this happened, by the way. I thought, no more lappy-top for old Brazen.
What happened was, I left the computer on hibernate or sleep (whatever it is that happens when you close the laptop). I reopened the laptop, and the
screen was white with some gray horizontal stripes. There were also a few strategically placed vertical stripes, but many more gray horizontal
stripes. I tried almost everything. I pressed ESC, I did Ctrl, Alt + Delete; nothing I tried last night work. I then thought, just force a shut down,
and then revisit it tomorrow and see what's up. I opened it up today, and same thing. And then, for no particular reason, I started moving the cover
up and down. When I did that, it normalized for a few seconds. So then I realized that that was helping, so I purposefully did this, that is moving
the cover up and down, and since then it seems that it's back to normal.
But for those computer geeks out there, what happened to my laptop? I bought it 2011. It's Windows 7, so it's not that old. I'm curious to know if
anybody has experienced this, and if it's serious. I've noticed that weird junk tends to happen when I leave the laptop on standby. I also had the
laptop on ATS of all things when I did this, from what I remember. It actually just did it right now. I'm assuming that it happens when the top (or
cover) is in a certain angle.
