Question about HP Compaq Presario C500t Notebook
Hello! I've been using my Compaq Presario (M2223AP) Laptop for 2 years now, then all of a sudden I saw 2 vertical lines on the screen. 1 line is a clear red line (but not so thick & dark) located about 1/3 from the left of the screen while the other is a very faint (thin, almost transparent) line located about 1/5 from the right of the screen. I think it might be a monitor problem. I'm not very good in fixing computers so I have not done anything about it yet. I'd appreciate your help very much. Thanks! I HAVE A COMPAQ PRESARIO C500 AND I HAVE HAD IT FOR ABOUT 10 MONTHS NOW, I HAVE THIN BLUE LINE RIGHT SIDE OF MY SCREEN BUT IT COMES AND GOES. TODAY I HAVE NOTICED A RED LINE JUST LIKE IT ON THE LEFT SIDE. I HAVE TWO YEAR INSURANCE PLAN. SHOULD I CALL THEN AND TELL THEN ABOUT THE PROBLEM, OR IS IT NOT A PROBLEM AT ALL?
Yes the problem is with your video system hardware, most likely. A repair may be possible as it could be the delicate ribbon cable that provides the video signal from a connection on the motherboard to the actual display screen. It could be the display screen. If some tech-savy friend with a good rep and an anti-static mat, good tools, and good lighting wants to assist you or check it for you, you may give that a try. Consider first that if you have or can get an extended warranty from the manufacturer then you can have a higher likelihood of a good resolution of the problem of the vertical lines that distract from viewing the display.

Get your screen fixed. Im having the same problem with my raggedy laptop. I eventually took it back and got a Dell which I never had a problem with.
