Thin Red Line on Left Side of HP Pavilion DV2000 Lap Top Screen

There is a thin red vertical line on the left side of the lap top screen. I mean... it's not bothering me, but it has me worried that there could be something seriously wrong. I have an HP Pavilion DV2000 notebook. (**** computer btw... I don't recommend buying HP.) But anyways.... is there a solution to getting rid of this line?

I should add that the line shows up when I start the lap top at the time the HP Logo come on... and so on.

I don't remember seeing it earlier today. It caught my eye because it runs through the START button. I think it appeared after I used PowerPoint 2007.

Thanks in advance!

    Thanks for your quick response! I will definitely try doing that. :) It's unfortunately out of Warranty so I can't even send it back. (This thing has been sent back like... at least 20 times. It doesn't surprise me there's another problem... but it's not a big deal... at the moment.)

Majority of time it's the lcd that has a problem which creates the red line, otherwise it's the GPU (video processor).

Try hooking up your computer to an external monitor. If you see the line on the external chances are it's the lcd.

This method of testing isn't fool proof but either way the problem is hardware related.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

I have a red line on my lap top sreen what is it pls


Sounds like a bad screen - if it's like a line, or lines, either horizontal or vertical. If it's a pixel wide (very, very thin) and it doesn't distort the screen (like displaying a Q like a O) - then it may not even need to be replaced. Most of these M2000's come with 15" XGA screens and the best source of these things is eBay and only tourists pay over $40 for these things :-)

Thin red line across screen two inches for the top. Picture above line is good, picture below line has no color and double image.


Hello,

IF YOU HAVE A SOLID BLACK LINE RUNNING VERTICALLY THEN YOU HAVE A FAULTY MATRIX INVERTER. IF CENTRAL THE MAIN VERTICAL INVERTER NEEDS CHANGED. LEFT = LEFT VERTICAL INVERTER RIGHT=RIGHT.........

ANOTHER WAY TO GET THIS FAULT IS WORN OR DAMAGED RIBBON/PLASTIC GOING FROM THE SCREEN MATRIX TO THE INVERTER

Hope this will help out.....

Thin blue line


Hi!

This is a phisical hardware problem with the screen.
If the system is under warranty better take back so your vendor replace the screen.

I think is the only solution.

This is a progressive problem, day a day you will be seen more and more lines until the screen become death.
