I have had a pink line running vertically down my laptop monitor
approximately 1/3 of the way across the screen from the left for about
3 or 4 weeks now. It's a HP Pavilion dv6439nr that I bought on November
30, 2007 so I still have my 1-year manufacturer's warranty in effect.
From what I'm reading online, is this covered under the warranty? Can
it be fixed? There has been no bumping, dropping, etc.; I am extremely
careful with my laptop! Any help? I would really appreciate it!! Thanks

Is it a pink line down the screen vertical or horizontal. Most likely it is a screen problem and you will need to replace the screen. Check the repair directory on FixYa.com for a reputable laptop service to take care of the problem if you are not comfortable replacing the screen yourself.
I know not everyone has this ability, but if you can, go to a friend's
house and hook up an external monitor to your laptop. You may need to
use the function keys to switch from LCD to external, but if the lines
go away on the external, you have a bad LCD. If the line shows up
still on the external, then your problem is either:
a) video driver (free, easy fix) b) bad inverter (video 'outputter') ...approximately $10-50/varies + labor costs to replace c) bad video card/motherboard ...usually between $200-$400 + labor to replace

This could be a failure in several areas along the path from the video card to the monitor.
Being that there is not an issue across the entire monitor the video card should be considered a last resort check.
Usually this is caused by a loose connection between the LCD driver and the LCD panel itself. Sometimes light pressure applied near the affected line will clear it up. If that does then it is a connection between the LCD panel and the connector to the LCD driver at the panel's edge.
Not much can be done unless you have it repaired by a professional or you can take it apart yourself and apply a pad of some type inside the monitor's edge to apply the needed pressure once assembled.
Hello pse try to connect an ordinary screen to your computer and see if you have the same problem then...use both screens at the same time ...and see if your lcd is the same or not...please tell me how it went...good luck...be hearing from you...Ron
