Question about Dell Dimension 9100 PC Desktop
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:
- changed aspect ratio
- changed display settings
- left computer off for a few days to cool off
- checked for Microsoft updates/drivers
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.
