    This is definitely an LCD problem. It may be that the cable going from the LCD to the system board is loose or bad. And then again it may be that the LCD is bad.

There are two ways to know whether this is an LCD problem or a video card problem. If the lines are visible only when you are logged in to Windows, then you might have a video card problem (or a motherboard issue if the video card is integrated). One good way to find out if this is an LCD problem is to run the PSA or Pre-boot Self-Assessment from Dell. To do this:

1. Shutdown your computer.
2. Press and hold on the "Fn" key (found at the lower left corner beside CTRL)
3. Press the power button while holding the "Fn" key.
4. Once the computer is on, release both keys.

If the lines are still visible at this point, then you have an LCD problem. You can also confirm this by connecting an external monitor to the computer. If the external monitor does not show any lines at all, then that confirms your LCD defect.

Please let me know if this helps. If it did, please rate it.

Thanks,

This is along shot but you may have picked up a virus a few months ago, do a full system scan, also download malwarebytes anti-malware and do a full scan, if nothing shows up consider a full windows operational install, I have found in some cases it fixes the video problem.

My compaq will start up saying loading files..then it starts to look like its loading up by showing the green bar moving across the screen...then after that nothing but a blank screen...the lights are...


before windows starts press f8 a couple of times to get into safemode.
if windows doesn't load then you probably have to reinstall windows.
If windows does start, try going into msconfig. Go to Start - Run then type in msconfig. click on the startup tab & try to remove some of the start up programs to see if thats the problem.
