Partial Screen Black-out on Bootup

I own HP TouchSmart tx-2 Notebook PC (1115AU) and the problem is that whenever I turn it on, there are two straight, horizontal white lines that divide the screen into 3 equal rectangles. The bottom two show nothing from the desktop as they are totally sky-blueish in color. The top part of the screen appears normal. A series of several on and off of the power switch (sometimes up to 6-times) will eventually correct this problem and the PC boots up normal.
The PC is around 15-months old and have had this problem for the past 6-months. May the Gurus out there extend a helping hand.

Bad screen
bad connectors to screen
bad driver chips driving said screen.
we do shop tests to find, it using parts and tools you dont have.

as you can see net bunnies can not do the work
called diagnosis.
here twist the screen gently , lines change right?
and tells you ? bad connections.

SOURCE: Screen Problem...

I had a similar problem with one of my laptops, there is a ribbon cable that connections the LCD screen to the board inside the laptop case that gets a little loose. In my case it was a easy fix because the button panel on my laptop popped right out and I could take the end of a pencil and push the connector back down into the socket; not all laptops make it that easy for you. If you laptop is still under warranty I would make HP fix it; there is also a chance the LCD screen could be burning out.
If you're not squeamish about fixing it yourself my recommendation is do the work at your own risk. The only hard thing about taking apart a laptop is putting the each screw back in the original location; many laptops have more than 5 different sized screws holding it together. Furthermore, you don't need to dismantle the whole thing; worst case there are 2 - 4 screws that hold in the keyboard and 2 - 3 screws holding in the forward button panel. Near each screw hole is an indicator what it is for; on my laptop it shows the letter "K" to represent the keyboard screw holes. I'd usually stay away from taking out the screws from the 4 corners of the laptop...
If your keyboard has a trackball there is a mini ribbon that is fragile connected underneath, so after removing the keyboard screws be careful not to pull farther then the slack allows.
If you're lucky you won't have to monkey with any of this and the forward button panel will just pop out. Laptop designers are making it easier to "replace" laptop screens and keyboards because it is a common problem. I'm positive if you're able to secure that connector you won't have that "frosting" effect you see now.

If you have anymore questions just let me know...

SOURCE: black screen on booting my Compaq 610 notebook

If it seems like you're accessing the hard drive (drive light comes on, flickers intermittently, then goes off, it's a good chance your screen is bad.

First thing to do is plug in an external monitor and start up the laptop. If it comes up with windows, you know it's the screen.

To find out if it's the backlight, or the lcd, toggle the monitor function and shine a flashlight on a slight angle to the screen. If you can faintly see what was displayed on the external monitor, then the backlight inverter is probably bad.

If the external monitor didn't come up, you're probably looking at a motherboard.

The good thing is that all of those are covered for one year under Compaq's warranty, on a new machine.

If you are able to use the external monitor, back up your data, because HP/Compaq usually reformat the harddrive. Additionally, if you've added memory, pull the cards. They want it sent back the way it came from the factory.

You can try pressing the F8 key at bootup to get the boot screen, and select the option " use last known good configuation" and press enter. if that dosn't work, you can do the same thing only select SAFE MODE and press enter, an that should get you into windows. then you an go t Start/accessories/systemtools/system restore, and restore th system back to a date before your problem started.
