Row of dead pixels
the screen needs replacement
for temporary fix bend the screen carefully
or place a piece of carton behind the screen under the lid
(for the last one you probably need a screwdriver)

If you can see the vertical lines during POST, try to check the vertical lines in BIOS. If the vertical lines are there in BIOS, the only thing you can do is to replace your LCD screen.

Vertical aqua colored line on the screen of my laptop


the cells inside of the lcd itself are starting to go bad which is why your seeing lines on the screen. To fix the problem you'll need to replace the lcd.

In the meantime you can hook up an external monitor and use that so you don't have to deal with lines on a bad lcd screen.

My Ibm Laptop r51 has a vertical lines on the screen


The lines appearing on your LCD means it has a defect on the screen.

There are 3 types of pixel defect
1) dead pixel - pixel is always off
2) stuck pixel - pixel is always on
3) hot pixel - pixel is on but in red, green, blue or yellow, can also be a light black color

You can try to fix stuck or hot pixels but dead is dead.
1st method, flashing different colors rapidly:
JSScreenfix.com has a great tool. This is their free java applet or you can download it below.

2nd method, applying pressure to pixel:
Damp paper towel, Small stylus or dull pencil.

3rd method, tapping the pixel:
Pen with cover on or another small, blunt object.


If your laptop is still under warranty, get it replaced. If not you are looking at the most expensive part in a laptop to get replaced. (LCD screens on laptop is roughly equivalent to 40-60% of the total laptop cost

Vertical lines in my laptop screen


Try connecting an external monitor to the Dell Inspiron 9300 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.

Monitor problem


Sounds like a bad lcd.... any time you get vertical or horizontal lines, usually, the lcd needs to be replaced.

If you flex the screen a little, does it change? Don't use alot of force, just grab the laptop lid from both side and tweak it a little to see if the lines change or go away.

What make and model is this?
