Compaq presario v2000 monitor is having horizontal purple lines that flicker.

I turned on my computer after using it last night now my screen is having purle lines flicker horizontally through it. Does anyone know about this problem it used to do this from time to time with like flicker but I would hit the button in the corner that turns off the montior when the lid is closed, and it would straighten back out.Does anyone know why my whole screen would ficker purple and have a tone of green to it? I am currently using the computer as it still works but the display has just turned purpilish flickered lines.

Re: Compaq presario v2000 monitor is having horizontal...

Try reloading the drivers, delete the device in device manager and reboot. It should then pick up the drivers and reload them, if that does not work I would suspect the screen is on its way out (flickering normally means the screen or its connection is bad)

No display at all

Take out the RAM and turn on the computer. It should freak out. If not, your motherboard has gone. The good news: your data is safe. If it does beep like crazy, turn the computer off, remove the battery AND ac, reinstall the RAM and hold the power button down continuously for a good, slow count of thirty. Plug in the AC and try again. Let me know if you have any other questions/problems. I'll monitor this thread.

It sounds like your power supply died. It's a pretty common problem. Can you get a friend to lend you their power supply? If so, hook it up and see if everything works. My bet is yes.
