Unlikely but possible that the video card has gone bad. the easiest way to check is to hook it up to an external monitor (if it has that capability) if the line is on the external monitor then it is the video card and depending on the model of the laptop it may not be able to be repaired. video cards are often built in and cannot be exchanged.

There are 3 things normally cause this. the first and cheapest of the 3 is to check the video cable. normally you wont have to take more than the keyboard and the faceplate between the keyboard and the monitor off. once those are removed you should see a flat ribbon cable running from the monitor into the laptop. make sure it is plugged in good. if it is then it is passable that the cable is bad. you will need to order a replacement cable either from ebay.com or you may be able to order from hp.com. it is a little of a pain to take the screen apart and get to the other end of the cable but it can be done. just remember to be gentle and don't pull to hard it is plastic. if you pull gently and nothing happens chances are you missed a screw somewhere. the other thing that normally causes this is the monitor going bad. a replacement monitor can usually be found cheap on ebay.com just make sure to get one with warranty.

Thin vertical blue ink bleed line from bottom of Malaprop screen - Fades over time


Hello,

Yes, it's a screen problem. It could be a loose connection of the LCD and the motherboard or the lid lights gone bad. You can fix that by either resetting the connection of the screen and the motherboard or replacing the whole screen. You would need a technician to do that.

it might be due to static on the notebook
turn off the notebook and then remove the battery from the notebook press and hold the power button on the notebook for 4-5 sec and then put the battery back and then turn on and check
if the line is still there check it in the safe mode or in BIOS if its still there then replace the screen

I have a thin line across the screen of my hp


Good question,

you can pick up Faulty hp laptop dv6000 for around 90 Euros on Ebay if you look around you might get Cheaper.

Just depends if your willing to do a little work or just wanna buy a new Laptop you can pick up a Handy Laptop now if you look around for 300 and up.

But a screen is not that Hard tyo change if you can do it or have a friend i suggest if its important to you Buy a Faulty laptop but see if any one locally can change it for you if not Buy a new one but look locally as you can use yours till it gets fixed should only take 1 hour to change :)

Thin line across computer screen


This might be a mediaplayer issue. Google on EHtray.exe and you will find a microsoft page with a number of filenames related to these kind of problems. Check by pressing CNRL-ALT-DEL and check if you see any of the filenames on the processes tab. Than stop the file and see if the black line disappears.

Monitor problems


Try plugging in another known working monitor and see what happens. That will tell you whether the issue is with the monitor or your HP. And do not go to HP for assistance since they will not do squat for you - horrible support and not deserving of business.

A thin horizontal line across the screen


I know I have seen thin lines in the past on older CRT monitors, these are usually wires which support the aperture grill. LCD is just a panel so this must be something different. What color is the line? It is probably an error in the scanning process.
