Question about HP Pavilion dv8000t 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 Toshiba Satellite and the whole right side of my screen is all vertical, colorful lines. Can this be fixed? Thanks. We have 2 vertical lines on our Toshiba Satellite P105 that is a little over a year old I have an HP Pavilion dv8000 laptop that now has 5 vertical lines, 2 pink & 3 pale green. It started happening about 1-2 months ago with one line & has progressed. I bought the computer in 2002 & have loved it up until now, with no problems. Is there any reasonable way to resolve this? Thanks! BB
If the lines flicker and change when you put pressure on the screen it sounds defective lcd screen, there are these conductive rubber pieces that lead the signal into the lcd panel and once the connection deteriorates there is no going back. the screen could still be replaced, there are laptop repair places that do it, but you have to have to weigh your options with buying a new laptop, repair could be up to 50% of what your's is worth as a 2nd hand laptop.
you can try to fix it yourself, there are guides online on google and you usually get the screen on ebay for around 150.

This could be a failure in several areas along the path from the video card to the monitor.
Being that there is not an issue across the entire monitor the video card should be considered a last resort check.
Usually this is caused by a loose connection between the LCD driver and the LCD panel itself. Sometimes light pressure applied near the affected line will clear it up. If that does then it is a connection between the LCD panel and the connector to the LCD driver at the panel's edge.
Not much can be done unless you have it repaired by a professional or you can take it apart yourself and apply a pad of some type inside the monitor's edge to apply the needed pressure once assembled.
