Default Acer Aspire 5630 Laptop screen/display problem

Well, I take back what I said about it being a driver issue. It's
clearly a hardware issue. Any chance that it was flashed with the wrong
bios or that someone changed the LCD panel?

Can you post a screen shot of what the BIOS looks like?

Is there any chance that at some point someone replaced the LCD panel
with a different model?

Just asked my niece and she said no, it's never had a replacement LCD panel.

Thanks Fixer. The problem is still there when looking in the BIOS
and even when running a Linux LiveCD so it's not a Windows driver
issue. The problem is *NOT* there when viewing on an external
monitor, so thanks to your suggestions I'll try a new screen cable
first as that's the cheapest ) Thanks mate,
