Question about HP Pavilion zd8000 Notebook

1 Answer

I have a super-dooper Alienware gaming laptop that has developed 3 vertical lines in the past 4 months. It's obviously the screen as when I hook another monitor up, they don't show on that. Don't be too quick to **** off HP! I paid a fortune for this and it is just out of warranty!

    Never dropped and never left on for more than a couple of hours in the evening. It started off with one bright red line about 1/3 in from left of screen, couple of weeks later an orange line about 1/2 across screen and now have black line about 1" to the right of centre. Laptop has been very well cared for and never actually moved. It sits on my desk at home as it was a replacement for my desktop.

If it's 3 weeks old return it. Or you can do a System Restore/Recovery. Take a look at this forum for the Restore/Recovery Procedure: http://en.community.dell.com/owners-club/alienware/f/3746/t/19441985.aspx

My Alienware M11X R2's screen broke completely off. I thought I could just hook up an HDMI cable and use the base with a monitor but it keeps beeping... and the video wont show up on the monitor.


Do you mean that the hinges broke and the screen is no longer attached to the laptop. I googled ' Alienware M11X R2 screen' and one of the first results is a story from PC World which contains:


"Dell will repair broken hinges on any Alienware M11x system for any R1 or R2 customer worldwide regardless of warranty status," wrote Dell's John Blain, in a blog entry on the company's website.

Laptop screen has vertical lines of garbage 3/4" wide about 3/4" apart. sound system starts making choppy noise after only few minutes powered up. Trying to fix this laptop for a friend - I'm a desktop...


Connect an external monitor to the VGA-output port on the laptop, to see if the video-effects are being caused by the video-card, or by a damaged "internal" LCD screen on the laptop.

Take any genuine Microsoft Windows XP/Vista/7 CD/DVD disk, and "boot" from it. Do the vertical lines appear when booting? If so, you have a hardware problem. If not, then only the currently-installed version of Windows is messing-up your display.

If all else fails, backup all the user's files to an external device, reformat the disk-drive, and reinstall Windows, to see if it's a messed-up version of Windows that is causing the symptoms.

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.

Gateway laptop vertical dotted lines across the screen


Sounds like a problem with the LCD assembly or cable. You may want to reseat the LCD cable at the LCD end. It could be a loose internal connector in the LCD assembly.

Line across my laptop screen


The graphics part of the laptop is going out. Recommend just replacing the laptop, it would be cheaper.
