Vertical Lines in Monitor

I am having the same problems with the vertical lines. I currently have about 6 lines on my screen. They are always visible no matter where I go or what I do. I recently got a vertical blue line on the monitor of my hp dv8000.

    There was no line on the Windows XP bootup screen. The line was on and off on the login screen and then always present. There's only one line and its always in the same place about 2 inches left of center.

    thanks crayzeetrayn. I'll try connecting to another monitor.

    I connected to an external monitor and the vertical line that was present on my dv8000 screen was not there. Can the laptop screen be repaired or does it need to be replaced?

    I am having the same problem with my DV8000. I have two lines and there are present only on my LCD panel and NOT when plugged into an external monitor.

    Can that problem be fixed? And how?

    Thanks in advance for any help on this matter.

    Are these lines always on the same place or moving randomly?

This is a wide spread problem with HP laptops. It's occurred on my HP dv8230us laptop and other HP laptops. I've read all kinds of forums and posts looking for an answer, but no one has an answer. One guy said he replaced the screen, but the lines came back a month later! I've found replacement screens on ebay for $120 if you want to try it. I'm thinking about trying it, but I'm a bit hesitant.

A class action lawsuit was filed against HP for this problem, but was dropped. You can read about it and other people's stories about their vertical lines here: http://www.hpverticalline.com/

If the lines are only on your laptop screen, it is generally the display IC on the LCD panel.

When plugged into an external monitor and you still see the lines, it is the video memory on your laptop.

Unplug the monitor video cable from the computer. Power on the monitor and see if you get the same results. If so then your monitor is defective.

normally the 19" resolution can support up to 1280*1024, but if it comes with vertical lines in full screen, it might indicate the panel is no longer to work and probably it's time to replace new one.

I have vertical colorful lines on the screen just got a new computer with windows vista


the monitor is bad if your getting vertical lines on it. Anytime you get vertical lines on any monitor, LCD, laptop LCD, etc, then that means the screen is bad.

Your monitor needs to be replaced.

Vertical lines on screen , is there a processor driver download to fix this problem


Vertical lines on a screen is not a processor problem, vertical lines is going to be a problem with the monitor or the video card. Try a different known working monitor on your computer and if the lines go away then you know that the original monitor is bad.

If the lines don't go away then try replacing the video card. If you have integrated video then the motherboard would need to be replaced. A processor driver download is not going to fix a vertical line problem.

Vertical Lines in Monitor


This is usually a screen problem and cannot be fixed however to verify if this is from the screen or from the video card you can connect a normal monitor to the back output connector of your laptop and check the display on the external screen.

This will tell you if it is the video card on the board or the actual screen. In either case it would be a hardware issue.

HP Pavilion ZD8000 vertical lines issue


Hi,
In answer to your question. It may be a screen problem. as the screen has a Matrix of vertical and horizontal line configuration.
I,d suggest trying the laptop/computer on an external monitor or screen. if it works fine on an external. then it could be assumed that the TFT Panel or invertor has a fault.
if the picture/display still has vertical lines on an external monitor, then the fault may lie, with the Mainboard.

Process of elimination, before spending any Money :)
