Question about HP Pavilion zd8000 Notebook
I am having the same problems with the vertical lines. I currently have about 6 lines on my screen. They are always visible no matter where I go or what I do.
I am using an Acer and my screen has over 25 lines now. Same vertical lines. Can anyone tell me what I can do to correct it??

If the lines are only on your laptop screen, it is generally the display IC on the LCD panel. When plugged into an external monitor and you still see the lines, it is the video memory on your laptop. If that being the case, and you change your shared memory to a lower value, it may correct the video problem (depending on memory address), but cause Windows to crash when that address is reached in a program before using Swap file. Another option if you are real good with addressing you can lower the shared memory and exclude ranges to use- That would have both laptop and LCD working but not remedy the problem totally.

Have you tried starting up in safe mode (F8 while booting up in winxp) see if you still have lines, as the graphics driver will default to vga, this will show if it's a driver problem. If still same, probabaly rows of dead lcd pixels.

Don't buy hp products they do not last.they are cheap made and hp does not stand behind their products unless you buy the extended warranty.bottom line hp cheap cheap cheap junk

The possibility of 6 ROWS OF DEAD LCD PIXELS, is 1 in a Million, my friend. Your problem is that your cable that is connected to your mother board is damaged. You may have to remove your lcd monitor and unplug and plug it in your laptop, firmly but everything should fit and dont force anything. Unfortunately that will void your warranty.

Following 10 days of agony multiple back and forths carrying an HP Compaq on my 130 lbs body to Micro-Center in Chicago and little $ to spare.... The supposed champion for computer problems, hardware, etc. AND 6 other "experts" I contacted from nearly every site on the web and my neighborhood.... On comparing all their diverse opinions -- It is definitely 90% of the time a video card problem BUT note that FIRST IN LINE to go bad is usually the monitor. Especially if not of the very expensive type like the cheapo Acer I bought 2 yrs ago. Screens wear out a lot sooner than "the video card in the computer". Also see if your computer is 3/4 yrs or older and in that case.....yaaarrrgg!! In the long run...once the "card" goes bad.... turns out it is much cheaper to just buy a new machine. Technology today makes most of the innards obsolete by time you've had a computer 3 yrs. My own take and strictly my own choice is to therefore never buy expensive computers. Unless, of course, it is a Mac. I had one. I'd give anything for one again but they're not very compatible friendly in many areas for the average users' needs.

14" colour monitor problem vertcalbars comming on the full screen

With HP the verticle lines are caused by the monitor itself not the video card...which will mostlikely fail anyways. I had an extra monitor and plugged it into my zd8000 and the new monitor had no lines. Of course the video card is shot so it still looks like ****. But that is what cause the verticle lines.

HP laptops with ATI video chip have a know problem. THe chip needs to be replaced. There was a class action lawsuit in the US, and the people won! Hurray. As for me, I'm in Canada, and I'm now fighting with HP Canada to get my three laptops fixed, for free.

Go to your retailer and raise a stink especially if you are within warranty. Also, file a Better Business Bureau complaint against HP. This has worked for me several times with HP and a full credit was issued to the retailer so that I could purchase an upgraded model or different brand.

Dont buy a HP Laptop

It's the onboard ATI video circuit overheated and starting to fail. Seems like a common problem that HP won't own up to. HP is charging $300 tax and shipping included.

I put the large spring style paper clips at the top where it puts pressure top of the screen frame (not on the screen). The lines appear around the latches at the top.. My dad, a friend, me, and my wife bought one and all four did it in 2 weeks!

I had the same issue with an HP Monitor that I plugged into the video out on my laptop... It turned out to be, as most HP stuff is, a piece of ****... It couldn't handle the color bleed I was putting out, nor the top resolution. My fix was, take the resolution down just a notch, and then recalibrate the color and it worked fine.

Can all laptop memories work on all laptops?

SOURCE: Vertical Lines in Monitor
This is usually a screen problem and cannot be fixed however to verify if this is from the screen or from the video card you can connect a normal monitor to the back output connector of your laptop and check the display on the external screen.
This will tell you if it is the video card on the board or the actual screen. In either case it would be a hardware issue.
