You have a dead column of pixels. The only solution I'm afraid is to replace the LCD screen.

I'm sorry the news isn't good but can you take a moment and rate the solution as fixya even if it wasn't what you wanted to hear? Thanks! :c)

HOW DO I FIX A FROZEN,UNMOVEABLE CURSOR ON A LENOVO T61 COMPUTER?


If your Lenovo is running Windows, you use your keyboard to shut it down. One way is to press ctrl + alt + delete; this will open the task manager. Use the keyboard to select your options or to shut it down from here.
Another way is by pressing alt + f4, but you must be in your desktop (main display). Also use the keyboard to select your options.

Slow scrolling


Scrolling on-line? off-line? If on-line, i would suggest it's the website/internet. If off-line try shutting down unnessary programs running in background. Is your CPU or Memory running high? Open Task Manager, Performance? Open Applications or Processes to see what is using all your resourses, end processes that are unnessary

Check if the system is overheating.

You can try to clean the cooling vents using a can of compressed air or a vacuum cleaner (make sure to turn off the system and disconnect battery and charger before you try this).

If the processor heatsink/fan assembly is clogged with dusts, it can cause this problem.

You need to make sure that the processor heatsink/ fan assembly is clean of any dusts.


The following link will give some idea about how to clean the heat sink

When the laptop is conected to the mains adapter and it shuts down for no reseason and you can boot up again after a period, it would indicate that you could have an overheating problem.
Check the fan to see if it spins freely and there are no dust clogging the fan and heatsink assemble, remove and vacuum the dust, if the fan is faulty, replace it.
