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.

Screen is white with black vertical lines upon booting up. I can't get beyond this screen.


The video card (built-in on the motherboard) maybe faulty or the LCD screen is faulty.
Connect an external monitor to the video port of your laptop, power up the monitor first then boot up your laptop. If the video card id OK then the laptop will automatically divert the video to the external monitor. Then the problem is a faulty LCD screen.
If the external monitor also displays black vertical lines then you have a faulty video card and since it is part of the motherboard it is impossible to fix.

Vertical multicolored lines appear. Sometimes there are couple of vertical white stips and vertical lines


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 mainboard. Have it checked by a professional.

Multiple lines on screen


Try connecting an external monitor to the your laptop and see if the vertical line is also present on the monitor. If the monitor display is fine, then your laptop’s LCD display panel is defective. If the monitor also displays the vertical line, then your problem is with either the video card or motherboard located inside your laptop.Not sure if the Compaq Presario has an external monitor plug, but if it does the above procedure can be applied to that one as well.

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 :)
