Question about HP Pavilion ze2000 Notebook
The line you see can be because of faulty LCD or faulty Graphic Card.
To make sure what is the actual cause of the issue, try the steps listed below for which you need a desktop monitor.
Turn on the Notebook and connect the Desktop Monitor the VGA Port of the Notebook and turn it on.
Now, hold the FN key and press the F4 key once to toggle the display between the LCD and the Desktop Monitor connected.
If you see the line on the Desktop monitor also, the issue is with the Graphic Card. However, if the line appears only on the LCD of the Notebook and not on the Desktop Monitor, the issue is with the LCD.
The Notebook needs to be repaired in both the situations.
However, if the issue is with the Graphic Card, the motherboard needs to be changed since the Graphic Card is soldered on to the motherboard. Additionally, if the issue is found to be with the LCD, the LCD Display of the Notebook needs to be changed.
I recomend you to go for a new Notebook if you are not comfirtable since the Motherboard or LCD Replacement will cost you a bomb...
Hope this helps...
