Question about HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook

1 Answer

Laptop Screen White

My laptop screen had been showing me weird lines and was slightly lighter in color on the right side of my screen. This would go away if I twisted the screen and adjusted it slightly.

Now, my laptop screen is white but am using an external monitor.
It looks like a fog over my screen.

So do I need to buy a new screen?? Any help is appreciated.

Re: Laptop Screen White

Yup. Bad lcd. If under warranty, have the manufacturer replace it. If not under warranty, visit ebay for the least expensive lcd's. Won't find them cheaper anywhere else. Just buy from a seller with a decent rating. Some are offering 100-120 day warranties on new lcd's. You can also find used ones there, as is.

This can be one of two things. The first is unlikely, the display cable has become loose. The second is more possible, the screen has gone bad and needs to be replaced.

Dell Latitude D505 half of screen is black with colored vertical lines.

Sounds like you have a section of dead pixels. This can happen if the laptop has been dropped a lot or stepped on or some type of impact on the laptop. This is a hardware issue. You will need to have the screen replaced. In my opinion, by the age of the laptop, its better off getting a new one.

Half the screen is white, half the screen is colorful

I would try using an external display. That will prove the GPU. If it is OK then the display is faulty, if not the GPU is faulty.

It could be due to some loosing insde the laptop screen. In my view there are two things.
1. The data connection between the laptop motherboard and the screen (through cable)
2. The connectors inside the screen.

It is highly recommended that you get the laptop checked by a professional to avoid any further damage to it.

Good Luck!
Hope this helps!

The problem is not from the inverter of the laptop. It is the module that is faulty, the module is like a flex in the laptop that assists in getting information from the motherboard to the screen, if it is faulty, it will start showing weird colors or start having some screen malfunctions.

Have the module replaced and the laptop will be in good condition once again. I had such experience with my HP530 and i replaced the module, trust me it worked perfectly fine.

Take care and good luck

Vertical lines on screen

Hold one side of the screen need top and flex slightly (Not twist, FLEX) if the full screen appears and lines are gone, you may need to have this fixed by a shop or replaced totally.
