    i'm having vertical lines in my monitor of Latitude D800, so i think that there is not problem with VGA drivers, because also when i turn on the notebook, before it starts with windows its same problem, also when i enter BIOS setup there is same problem.

    I've tried to open te monitor of notebook, and also i was testing hardware with testers, but there is no problem,

    Can anyone help me about this problem or i need to order new monitor of notebook?

    I too have a HP Pavilian zd8000 which was custom ordered loaded with everything the same time as your purchase..I have it in a dry location, no sunlight and it is not opened and shut or moved..It has never been dropped and is cared for with kid gloves. Several days ago my computer developed in the same spot a white/blue line one third of the way from the left...then two days later over another three quarters of an inch a red line has developed. Considering this computer does not get over used, abused etc and is in like new condition I cannot believe this has happened. I too called and they immediately wanted me to ship it in...telling me cost would probably be from 200. to $600. This is obviously a design or assembly error and it will only happen again...I had just purchased a second HP laptop too...and now I regret totally this purchase.....I have referred so many people to HP...and have been a life long client...I am going to write to them and if I get no assistance I will make it a point to tell everyone I meet...as I assist seniors with computer help and write for the Miniature Horse World and have my own Art Studio, I cannot stand unfairness and dollars are not easy to come by today that they can be thrown away like this to support some CEO's bonus.....

    Yes I have a vertical line (red or purple) going right donw the center of my zd8000 screen. I thought maybe it was related to a heat situation. If I left the computer laying on somethin where the fans couldn't breat that well, but I'm not sure. Any ideas? I tried to download a fixer called Driver Detective but when it tried to install it said there was a problem with netfx.exe and wouldn't conplete the installation soI don't know whether that would work or not.

    I have about 45 vertical colored lines on my HP zd8000 and spoke to the HP tech support. They said the video card is bad and to replace it would cost $389.00. What a rip off! It sounds like this is a huge problem with HP. I will not buy another product of theirs!

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

the monitor is bad if your getting vertical lines on it. Anytime you get vertical lines on any monitor, LCD, laptop LCD, etc, then that means the screen is bad.

Your monitor needs to be replaced.

Vertical lines on screen , is there a processor driver download to fix this problem


Vertical lines on a screen is not a processor problem, vertical lines is going to be a problem with the monitor or the video card. Try a different known working monitor on your computer and if the lines go away then you know that the original monitor is bad.

If the lines don't go away then try replacing the video card. If you have integrated video then the motherboard would need to be replaced. A processor driver download is not going to fix a vertical line problem.

HP Pavilion ZD8000 vertical lines issue


Hi,
In answer to your question. It may be a screen problem. as the screen has a Matrix of vertical and horizontal line configuration.
I,d suggest trying the laptop/computer on an external monitor or screen. if it works fine on an external. then it could be assumed that the TFT Panel or invertor has a fault.
if the picture/display still has vertical lines on an external monitor, then the fault may lie, with the Mainboard.

Process of elimination, before spending any Money :)
