You need to verify if the issue is present prior to posting. On boot up hit the del key (see laptop screen for prompt, it may be a diferent key). If the lines are still present there is a hardware issue and you will need to get if serviced.

If the lines do not show there then boot the machine and try changing the display setting for standard VGA to 800x600 to 1024X... (actual numbers may vary). If problem still persists then try relaoding the video controller and screen drivers and or searching the HP/Compaq website for patches.

Note: always make sure you keep you OS up-to-date with the latest patches.

My screen has a vertical line red-yellow-green from (top to bottom) that stays there. How to fix it?


I do not know any setting that makes a vertical line red-yellow-green from (top to bottom)

If you can find a monitor to connect to and know how to tell the PC to send a signal to it (ie, on a Dell it is Function F8) you can determine if it is your Video card or your screen that has failed. The Video card is part of the Motherboard and very challenging to replace. The LCD screen however is not as expensive and relitively easy to replace. You can watch YouTube videos on how to. A screen can be found at sites like Amazon and EBay.

I had a vertical line on my laptop screen


A line on a LCD screen (like a laptop) is caused by a faulty power connection in the screen.

Usually a entire row or column will not activate causing a black line to show. When you closed your laptop, the screen is powered down. When you opened it back up, the screen would be reinitialized and it appears that you lucked out on your issue.

When a row or column fails it is usually a permament failure that can only be fixed by a monitor technician or a screen replacement.

A similar failure can happen that causes black dots to show on the screen. These are burnt out junctions where the rows and columns meet together. The dot is commonly called a pixel.

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.

Line in lcd


Most of the time, symptoms like those appearing on your laptop are caused by problems with your video card or the LCD screen. One of the main causes for the problem is excessive heat buildup in the laptop that damages either component, or both of them. If you have a jack for connecting an exterior monitor, try hooking up a monitor to the laptop. If the problematic lines don't show up on your LCD, that;s the component that's going bad, If they are still visible, there's a good chance your video card is going bad (or both the video card and LCD screen are going bad).

Hope that helps isolate your problem.

Replace the laptop under warranty. No point trying to fix the error and voiding the warranty.
