The monitor is defective and should be repalced. Keyboard and mouse pad problem could be a driver problem. Try to reinstall their drivers.

HP pavillion dv9000 has black horizontal lines across screen and looks like a snowy background


Sounds like the screen is going bad. Isolate the problem by plugging an external monitor to the laptop. Borrow a monitor from a neighbor, friend, relative or co-worker to plug to the laptop. It can be any kind of monitor even the old big fat crt monitors as long as it has a vga cable to connect to your computer's vga port. If the Borrowed monitor does not show the black lines and snowy background, that proves your video card is ok and the problem is your lcd screen. If the borrowed monitor shows the same black lines ans snowy background it means your video card inside the computer has the issue.

The video will show on most systems when you reboot without you having to do anything. Some systems will require you to hit the FN (Function key) + F1 thru F12. Hold down the FN key then hit the correct key for displaying on the monitor (F1 thru F12). The correct key will normally have CRT/LCD on it or it will have the icon of a display.

I have a horizontal white line going straight across my laptop, and I only got it a few days ago. Is there anyway that I can sort this out myself. Thanks x


Hook a external monitor to the video output on the back of the laptop, if it works! you have a laptop screen issue, possibly caused by a loose video cable that connects from the motherboard to the LCD screen, if the monitor has the same problem it is a motherboard issue. Doing anything to the laptop "dis-assembly" will void the warranty, best to take it back for exchange.

Horizontal lines on screen HPCQ509


Lines on the screen are usually caused by a hardware malfunction in either the lcd, lcd cable or the GPU.

Do the lines appear immediately after power up the computer? Or only when Windows starts?

Can you hook the laptop up to an external monitor to test?

How long have you owned this laptop?

Laptop Screen White horizontal lines


Try reseating the LCD cable to the video card. If no change, then you will most likely need a replacement LCD (Roughly $150 on EBay)

Why are there hoizontal lines on my monitor


Does the horizontal line appear on the LCD screen on the laptop?
To check if the video card is faulty or the LCD screen connect an external monitor to the laptop's external video port, power up the external monitor first then bootup the laptop. The Windows will automatically switch to the external monitor if the video card is OK. If not then the fault could be the video cable cable/connector or the LCD screen.
Get back to me with the results of this test and I can advise further.

Compaq presario f730us is forming vertical & horizontal lines on the lcd


Normally this is due to several different things. I can give you a few suggestions but you will have to do the detective work. First this can happen because of a bad video card. This can also happen because of a bad connection to the mainboard or a bad cable from the mainboard to the back of the LCD. Last but not as likely is just a bad LCD. Try hokking the laptop to an external monnitor. You should have a 15r pin connector on the laptop to connect a standard monitor to it. There should also be a Fn key that allows you to activate the external part of the LCD. You have to know which key to hit with the Fn key to activate this feature. You can also try to hook up the external monitor before starting the laptop. This normally makes the external monitor activate. If you see the lines on the external monitor as well then its the display adapter not the cable or connection. If the external monitor is clear then try the video cable. The least expensive and easiest to replace is the video cable. Check to see if it has a good connection to the mainboard. If you still have a problem then replace the cable. If that doesnt work and you are really fond of this laptop try replacing the mainboard (unless your video card is replaceable on the motherboard then replace the video card). If you dont want to sink a lot of money into the laptop and the video cable doesnt work then run it on an external monitor. If you need the portability of a laptop and you have determined that the mainboard is bad then you might just replace the laptop and transfer your data. Hope this helps...

Compaq 2100 laptop powers on but screen is dark


You can try to adjust the monitor settings by the buttons on the monitor, but this usually is part of the natural progression of a monitor dying.
