Hi Rhyecho,

Your problem could be one of several things...

1: Go to Compaq.com or HP.com (They're one in the same) the video/display drivers for you're particular model and operating system and reinstall them. If that doesn't solve it....

2: Hook the laptop to a standard monitor (desktop) via the blue VGA out in the rear of you're machine.

Once you turn the laptop back on see if you get the same symptoms on the other display, if you don't, in all likelihood you've got an LCD problem. If you do get the same symptom its probably related to the video chip (or other problems on the board).

Additionally, If you still get the line on the other monitor you could try this, Depending upon how brave and or experienced you are, on rare occasions the cable leading from the motherboard to the monitor may not be seated properly and could be causing the problem. But you'll have to remove to keyboard to find out. (The screws to do this may or may not be marked with keyboard icons on the underside of you're machine).

Unfortunately, It sounds like you're problem is probably on the board though.

Either way good luck.

Try connecting your laptop to an external monitor.Connect it with a vga cable to your monitor and press Fn+ monitor key(I don't know what it is for acer) to switch displays.If there are no lines on the external monitor then the problem is due to the notebook lcd.If there are lines then it is due to a driver.Reinstalling the driver should fix that then.

Monitor blurry or black


The problem could be with the LCD or the Video chipset. Either repair is expensive. I would figure about $150 in labor plus part cost. You can try ebay to get an idea of the part cost.

At 4 years I would be leaning towards purchasing a new laptop.
