Re: ZD8000 pAVILION where is video card, can it be...
A lot of money.£150 plus, and then you have to get it fitted. Don't bother - just buy another and get your data transferred. Go for a used Dell D610. Excellent machines, about 4 years old now but I sell loads and NEVER had a problem. Good build quality, unlike most of todays laptops

Connect an external monitor to your laptop. If the problem appears only on the display of the laptop and not on the external monitor in the same time that means the video card is ok and the problem could be : the screen of the laptop or the invertor or the cable that attaches the screen to the mptherboard. If the problem appears on both screens, external and laptop, most probably the video card/motherboard is defective.
Have it checked/repaired by a professional.

Interesting that you counted them! If you haven't tried to reinstall the video drivers, do that. If that doesn't work, hook up an external monitor to see if the display is OK on that. If it is, then your LCD screen has a problem and will need to be replaced.
HP will not admit it but there is a consistent problem with their zd8000 model. The video card (unfortunately part of the system board) needs to be replaced. We have seen a good number of these computers coming in with the same problem. Try starting your system in VGA mode. You can do this by hitting F8 at start up. If you now have a video screen then you know their is a problem with your video card or video card driver.
To isolate the issue further connect the notebook to an external monitor and check the display on it. If the display is perfect on external monitor then the issue is with the LCD screen of the notebook.
If you have got the same lineds on the external monitor then the issue is with the video card of the notebook.
