Question about HP Pavilion dv1000 Notebook

Vertical Panels on the screen

I have a HP Pavilion dv1330. Over the last couple of days I have had vertical panels (blocks) on the screen measuring about 4 cms wide. about 3.5cm was white and about 0.5cm was red. There were about 5 vertical panels across the screen. Each panel had horizontal lines on it.
The laptop wouldnt let me shut down by control alt del or even by turning off the button, so I had to remove the battery.
I recall it happened in screen saver mode.
Seems OK at the moment though.

Re: Vertical Panels on the screen

If it goes away after a reboot it is very likely a video driver or video software layer problem. If it only does it coming off screen saver mode, sounds like your screen saver has become corrupt - try another or reinstall the one you are using. Otherwise, try to reinstall new drivers for the video card, and update the to latest version of DirectX.

Good luck...

The screen on my hp pavilion model f3378h goes blank and all i get are lines that run vertical.

Connect an external monitor to your laptop and see if you still have the vertical lines. If the vertical lines are not visible on an external monitor you more than likely have a problem with your notebooks LCD panel.

If you still have the lines you may be having a problem with your graphics card/chip.

You can also see if the problem happens when you boot to safe mode. If you can get into safe mode you can try reinstalling the video driver for the laptop.

Your last resort would be to try a reinstall of Windows to see if that clears the issue (if all else fails).

In the end you may need to contact HP support. I would check to see if your laptop is still under warranty.

Based on the information you have given me it sounds like a hardware issue.

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.

How will i remove vertical green line from the desktop which is showing from few days.

If all your screens show a vertical green line, then your display is going bad and will need to be replaced.
If it is only on one screen, (like the desktop) then try changing the picture that you use for a background. My guess is that you see the line no matter what you do.

HP Pavilion ZD8000 vertical lines issue

In answer to your question. It may be a screen problem. as the screen has a Matrix of vertical and horizontal line configuration.
I,d suggest trying the laptop/computer on an external monitor or screen. if it works fine on an external. then it could be assumed that the TFT Panel or invertor has a fault.
if the picture/display still has vertical lines on an external monitor, then the fault may lie, with the Mainboard.

Process of elimination, before spending any Money :)

Blue Vertical Line

It is sounding like when the laptop is turned on and heats up a bit, the line appears? Sounds like one of the panels is going bad or atleast has developed a problem. below are some tricks you can try to lessen the annoyance of the line. Dual-Scan STN displays are composed of 2 panels behind a single protective panel or screen. Because you are looking through the protective screen the display appears to be one large panel even though it is not. There is a physical separation line (gap) at the point where the two panels meet. When the computer is on and being viewed it is not unusual to see the visible separation line with the Dual-Scan STN displays. The line, actually the fine gap between the display panels, appears because the color and light pixels cannot run along the very outside edges of the panels. This line (gap) between the panels can be seen as a fine gray line and is most noticeable when viewing on a screen with a white or light background. Note the line may not be as noticeable when the screen is displaying certain colors or darker backgrounds. SUGGESTIONS: It is not possible to completely eliminate the line but there are some things you can try to reduce it's visibility. 1) Lower the display brightness/contrast. The brighter the backlight the more noticeable the line. 2) Use Wallpapers and Screen savers that use darker colors. 3) In the Control Panel/Display applet under appearance try different combinations of color schemes for your Window and Background choice Let me know what happens. Good Luck, Tim
