Yes, you will need to replace the LCD screen and controller that comes with it. Screen occasionally just go bad and you end up with split screens like yours where one part is normal and the other is dim. If you send your laptop to repair or use geek squad you may have to pay about 400 bucks. If you order the LCD screen it should cost you about 175 to 200 up to 300 depending where you look.

SOURCE: hp pavilion dv8130us laptop rolling

By using the VGA output with a projector and having it show up clearly and as expected is a sign that the video card/GPU is working properly.
Furthermore, the symptom that you explain of a rolling screen I interpret as meaning that you can see the image that is meant to be displayed, but it keeps moving from the bottom of the screen to the top and rotating. IF this is correct it sounds like DA converter on the LCD is your culprit. It is the chip that is in charge of interpreting the signal coming from the GPU and sending it to the LCD elements at the prescribed refresh rate (generally 60 hertz). The rolling image is an indication of the refresh rate not being met by the LCD.
Things to check:
1) While plugged into the projector, open the Windows Control Panel then the Display Icon. Go to the Settings Tab.
2) If the Display settings show 2 output displays, ensure the built-in LCD is the one clicked on in the graphic then click the Advanced Settings button/link.
3) Once that window appears go to the Monitor Tab and set the option to the lowest numbered option. Generally this will be 60 or lower. Then press OK. The screen will flicker and HOPEFULLY you will get a clear/non-rotating LCD display. If not, I'd venture that the LCD itself has gone bad again. Perhaps there is a root cause such as a powering issue that is providing too many amps to the LCD but that would take some hefty investigation to resolve the power that is supposed to be provided and a multimeter to figure out the actual voltage/amperage.
Hope this helps!

Dell laptop powes up no video


This could be one of three things.
1. It could be the LCD screen has gone out.
2. It could be the Cable that runs to the LCD has gone out.
3. It could be the Video Card has gone out.

If you have an extra computer monitor you should be able to hook your laptop up to it. That would help cross out bad Video Card. Truth be told any of these issues will have to be serviced.

Screen is black..will not display anything. Any


You provided very little information, so I'll try to answer:
I assume you turned on the comptuer and it seems to be working-you didn't say.
I assume it used to display something-you didn't say.
Hook it up to an external monitor. Can you see something? If so, one of two things are wrong: Your LCD screen has gone bad OR you need to hit the Fn/Special function key combo that moves the display from your LCD to an external monitor.
If none of these solves the problem, then your video card has gone south on you.

Screen is very dim..can barely see it..bright adjust doesnt help.


Hi, your LCD screen's backlight has gone out. This is a hardware failure, and you'll need to have it replaced or repaired. THe LCD screen consists of two parts, the LCD screen which creates images for you to see, and the backlight which forces light through the LCD so you can see it. Your backlight has gone out, so your screen still has images, but no light.

Power comes on but screen is blank


The laptop is powering up normally but the screen is still blank. This means the LCD inverter board might be gone and you need to replace it with a new one.
Replacing the LCD inverter board also works if there are any LCD abcklight problems.
If you are familiar with laptops, then you cna get a new one for reasonable price from ebay. Would have been better if you did specify your laptop model.
Cheers.

Lcd back light problem


If the laptop monitor is just dim then you need a new back light for the screen. If it cuts in and out when you move the screen it will be a dodgy connection which requires a fix in the cables connection. Would only suggest attempting this if you are familiar with pulling apart laptops otherwise take it to a pro that can order the parts and have them do it or to HP for repair.
Let me know if you need further help.

Compaq Presario laptop


First attach laptop to an external monitor and using the FN/ F keys toggle back and forth to the external display. If the external works OK then the video display adapter is fine and the problem is the TAB welds on the LCD. Time for a new LCD.

Laptop monitor problem


sounds like the inverter has gone out or backlight of the laptop has gone out.

you would normally see a logo or something when you removed the TV from it, you can boot dual lcd with laptop on and TV. so i doubt something is turned off.

when hitting FN and F5 usually take about 3 sec to refresh the screen. but looks like the LCD screen on the laptop has failed and need to be replaced or the Backlight or Inverter has to be replaced.

R40 screen is dead


Since a used R40 will be in the neighborhood of $300, a $100 or less for the screen might not be too bad of a price. Without the screen, you have a $330 paper weight. With the replacement screen, you have a working computer. And that would cost you $200 less than buying a replacement R40.
Hopefully this line of thought will help you make the decision.
