Question Need help with a LCD Screen.

I have a Aspire 5810T and the screen has a few lines going down vertically, is it a problem with the screen or inverter?

Sounds liker a problem with the video card to me.

Try plugging in an external monitor. If the lines appear on that too, then it's the video card. If it doesn't, then chances are it's the monitor.

I'd probably lean more towards the LCD itself over the inverter.

Do what iFargle said though as well, just to verify that it's indeed the screen.
