Question about HP Computers & Internet
I have a thin blaclk line across the screen of my HP Pavillion 6700 note book
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.
