    Do you have any speakers next to this screen? Speakers have magnets in them and the will take the color out of a monitor.

Blotted screen in my hp laptop


1.Locate the problem pixel. Display a true black image on your HP's monitor. You can do this by playing a DVD on your HP laptop, and pausing it on the black screen just before the movie starts. Once you bring up a black image on screen, the stuck or dead pixel should be visible.
2.Try applying direct pressure to the problematic pixel. After you've located it, turn off your laptop. Place a soft cloth or rag over the pixel to avoid damaging your screen. A soft chamois works well. Using the tip of a pen, apply gentle pressure to the pixel. You don't need to press hard, as too much pressure can crack or scratch your screen. While applying pressure, boot up your laptop. This should force the pixel to begin working properly.
3.Tap the pixel. With your Toshiba booted up and an image on the screen, gently tap the pixel with the rounded end of a pen cap. Tap hard just hard enough to see a small white flash on the screen. Tap your HP's screen until the pixel begins working properly.
4.Download a stuck pixel program. Several programs, including JScreenFix, UDPix and Pixel Protector, are available for download and can help fix a malfunctioning pixel. These programs display rapidly changing colors and images on your screen. The flashing colors and images can force the pixel to begin functioning properly.
5.Contact HP. If none of the above methods work, your screen may have a pixel that is truly dead. If that's the case, the only option is to replace the display completely. Contact HP customer support at www.hp.com to find an authorized repair service near you.

Yellow Stripe Down Middle of Screen on Laptop


This system has a VGA port so you can plug in an external monitor. You can buy one for less than $130 based on the Sunday ads. Other than that, it is new laptop time.

Screen gets blurred and comes back after applying pressure on LCD


from your description, it appeas to be an issue with the LCD since applying pressure has effect on it. I would advise to check with compaq for warranty repairs if you still have one active. The LCD may have to be replaced for this situation. You can try to use an external monitor to check if the video controller actually works properly

HD Pavillion Media CenterDv8225nr Notebood Pc. Verticle stripes


I would try a couple of things. First and cheapest way is to try and update your driver. If that does not work, then try to remove and reseat your memory card(s), and if all else fails you will need to buy a new graphics card approx 75 to 150 depending on how good you want to go.

Only have half screen on my Dell Inspiron 1501


What your describing is a failure of the LCD or possibly the inverter cable connection to the LCD. Most likely an LCD replacement will be required.

LCDs run around $150 on Ebay

Freezes exactly where it is. Apply pressure to palm areas and it continues?


You must have a melted contact. Try to identify in the zone you apply pressure (or in the far angle of the M/B that should rise while you push the mouse pad - tension) and see if there's a "free" contact...Try it opening the cover and letting the pc work...see what the pressure modifies....it's weird though!
