Hi,

Offhand and without seeing the actual image, I would suspect the LCD display itself. Would it be possible for you to post an image?

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

My screen has a vertical line red-yellow-green from (top to bottom) that stays there. How to fix it?


I do not know any setting that makes a vertical line red-yellow-green from (top to bottom)

If you can find a monitor to connect to and know how to tell the PC to send a signal to it (ie, on a Dell it is Function F8) you can determine if it is your Video card or your screen that has failed. The Video card is part of the Motherboard and very challenging to replace. The LCD screen however is not as expensive and relitively easy to replace. You can watch YouTube videos on how to. A screen can be found at sites like Amazon and EBay.

I just bought this Compaq laptop and it has really bad blurry spots and has 3 red lines going through the screen


This indicates the LCD panel is dead if the red lines are going from top to bottom then its the lcd screen thats faulty it there is green/red line going from side to side then that means the motherboard is faulty, if you have just bought it from hp they will replace it if you bought it from a dealer or a second hand shop you will need to go back to the shop for a refund

Line in my lc screen


A line from top to bottom or side to side is a dead or failed pixel sensor. There are hundreds of pixel sensors at the edges of the screen, when one fails it causes a line, the line can be red, blue, white, or black. Unfortunately, there is no way of repairing the line, other that replacing the screen.
