Continuous vertical white band display problem

HP Pavilion zd8000 laptop.
One-inch wide vertical white band from top of screen to in front of task bar, initially appears during Windows XP startup.
Also having trouble installing Windows service pack 3 (no idea whether or not problems are related).
Saw an advertisement to fix this problem by downloading a driver -- have not tried that yet, as I don't know if the download is trustworthy.
Steps I've taken so far that have failed:
- rebooted
- changed aspect ratio
- changed display settings
- left computer off for a few days to cool off
- checked for Microsoft updates/drivers

Thanks.

What is the error from installing xp sp3?
Is the white band always there? it is either a problem with the lcd panel most likely, or the graphics card. try a different monitor if you have one.

I have a hp pavilion 17 inch laptop and the screen is starting to get white vertical lines. I have 2 lines now. How to I fix this problem? Mrs. O'rourke


you have to first diagnose if the issue is with the hardware or the software.
You can do that by checking if you are getting the lines in BIOS or at the HP logo. if yes you have to get the screen replaced
Else you can simply reinstall the drivers

I have a 2inch wide band down middle of screen on


1) Have you installed new drivers or software or drivers? If so, remove them and restart the computer.
2) Try applying pressure with your fingers on top of the screen. If the band dissapears or dimishes, you may have a broken screen and it will need to be replaced.

Vertical multicolored lines appear. Sometimes there are couple of vertical white stips and vertical lines


Connect an external monitor to your laptop. If the problem appears only on the display of the laptop and not on the external monitor in the same time that means the video card is ok and the problem could be : the screen of the laptop or the invertor or the cable that attaches the screen to the mainboard. Have it checked by a professional.

Same problem with my zd8000 HP Pavilion laptop


what has happened with your notebook is a simple wear factor. on the LCD screen there are ribbon cables witch join the main PCB controller head to the LCD laminated portion (what you see) have begun to wear. i have just recently replaced a screen because of the same issue. try gently flexing the the screen and see if the lines dissappear. next open the screen up, and check the cable running to the back of the screen take care as to not damage anything.

Unfortunately, there is no way to fix it.
This line called "Tab Separation" of LCD.
You'll need whole new LCD display.
Very very common problem.

Display


It could be a bad screen, but I'd suggest checking the screen cable connector (unplug and reseat it a couple of times). Also, check for any breaks, wear or fraying on the screen cable.
Have a super day!
