Screen gone wild

I have an HP Pavillion vd2000 and the screen has gone haywire. I just have flashing colors and lines everywhere. I hooked it up to an external monitor and it works fine. Would that mean that I need a new VGA card or what.. I am the not the best computer guy but have some ideas. If that is the thought what kind of VGA card should I buy and is it easy to install on a laptop since I can't drop it off anywhere since I am going out of town tonite.. thanks

If your external video is working, most likely your VGA controller is good. Your laptop is using the same controller to control internal and external video. It could be two things that would cause your problem:
1. LCD VGA cable that connect your LCD to the laptop
2. Bad LCD VGA connector on the board(cold soldered joints)
3. BAD LCD panel

Any of the following repairs will require disassembling of your laptop.

Thin vertical blue ink bleed line from bottom of Malaprop screen - Fades over time


Hello,

Yes, it's a screen problem. It could be a loose connection of the LCD and the motherboard or the lid lights gone bad. You can fix that by either resetting the connection of the screen and the motherboard or replacing the whole screen. You would need a technician to do that.

You can try taking out the memory and reseating it.

Majority of the time with the ZD8000 the motherboard has gone bad.
