Picture corrupted thru the middle of the screen

Try to use an external monitor just to check if you are getting the same thing. If no problem using external monitor then the problem is already the LCD of your laptop.

Screen will not turn on unless I reboot it 2-5

This computer sounds like it has the same problem as every other DV series laptop and that is the fact that if they overheat in the slight bit, the solder on the Nvidia chip hits its de-solder point and the chip looses contact with the motherboard and causes all kinds of issues. I have "reflowed" dozens of these motherboards and have a 90% success rate and getting them to run again. If you have a heat gun, I can walk you through the steps to reflowing the board. You have to understand though that it may work and again it may not. In the times when I have not been successfull, I simply replaced the motherboard.

Take the laptop apart, I'll give you a link below for the service manual that explains the process.

The Nvidia chip sits next to the processor chip, wrap the motherboard in aluminum foil to ptotect all the areas except for the top and bottom of the affected chip.

Now, clamp the motherboard to a desk so it will not move and make sure that the underside of the chip is accessable from underneath.
Get a quarter and wad up a small amount of solder and place it on the quarter. Now put a small amount of thermal paste on the chip and place the quarter on the chip with the solder up. (The solder will be the indication to you that the chip has reached the proper temperature to melt the solder on the chip).
Now, take the heat gun and on the first heat setting start heating the top of the chip for 30 seconds, then switch the gun to the bottom of the chip for 30 seconds, then go back to the top for 30 seconds and then to the bottom for 30, switch the gun to high and hold it to the top of the chip where it will blow down on the quarter, keep the gun at least 6 inches away from the board at all times. When you see the solder on the quarter melt into a drop, switch the gun to the low heat setting and put the gun about 12 inches away and sweep the gun from side to side or have a ceiling fan over the area and let it blow air softly down on the board to help gradually cool it. Do not bump, hit or disturb the board until the board has at least 30 minutes to cool down. Once the board cools down, remove the quarter and reassemble the laptop. Power the ****** up and see if it fires up. Below is the link to the service manual, copy and paste it to your web browser address bar. It is in a PDF format and is free to use, copy and print.

Pavilion Laptop Screen Problem

It sounds like your screen was man-handled. You will need to replace the screen. You can sometimes buy them used online or you can get a new one from HP. Sorry for the inconvenience.

My Dell Inspiron B130 screen screen glitch

This could be a screen cable problem but it is normally a faulty screen even though it may look like a loose connection. Get a technician to check it for you.

All the best.

My Dell B130 laptop screen occasionally has horizontal lines accross the lower 1/3. I can correct by tapping the side of the screen a couple of times. Any suggestions please?

It sounds like your LCD is starting to go out - the screens are usually sectioned off in thirds or quarters, so when a third or a quarter starts having trouble, it's probably time to either replace the LCD, or replace the computer - because of the age of that laptop, it's possibly going to be cost prohibitive to replace the LCD. You can, however, hook it to a desktop monitor and continue using it just fine.

Is this happens always or only in windows? If it happens in windows only then there can be graphics driver related problem.

Quarter screen display for cd games

I don't suppose the game being on CD has anything to do with it. You don't mention if you are using XP, Vista or what, so advice is general

Several things you should check :

1. on control panel, look at display settings - especially check you don't have multi-display settings (i.e. set to display screen over multiple screens) switched on.

2. click on icon for your graphics card in taskbar if you have one. Check the settings for your graphics card (probably ATI or Nvidia, but could be under name for brand such as Sapphire or XFX)) - also look for multi-display settings here.
