Question about Compaq Presario M2000 Notebook
The symptoms you describe can be a damaged LCD, but they can also be caused by a loose LCD connector. If you are comfortable opening the laptop case, it would be wise to check this first. Sony uses standard Torx screws, if you buy the right size, taking it apart is not too difficult. Just do not FORCE anything. Be very patient, careful and gentle. Work in a space where you can capture any parts that drop and organize all the screws/parts in the same pattern they were removed. Then you find the ribbon connector (usually brownish-orange in color) and check the seating at both ends. If the laptop was OPEN, meaning the lid/LCD was open when the laptop was dropped, this ribbon might even be torn, and need replacing.
