Question about Compaq Armada M700 Notebook
Hello all! Started off having north-south 'lines' on the left hand side of the monitor which changed in size/colour as i adjusted (open/closed) the monitor angle. Now they are permanantly there......ie monitor is illegible on that side. Questions: has it got to do with the hinge/video cable, do i need a new screen or cable or is it fixable? Had a nintendo ds2 that did the same thing once and a friend pulled it apart, put it back together and it was fine!!! Don't know if this is the same... Any advice appreciated...thanks. RL
IT may be simple as reseating the ribbon cable on the side of the LCD display- the initial problem indicated that, but now the cable may have become totally unseated. Otherwise it may be just a bad cable. Try plugging the Laptop into a CRT or external monitor, if the picture is fine, reseat or replace the connecting cable to the LCD panel in the laptop. Kegtapper
