Question about Compaq Presario M2000 Notebook
Hello! I've been using my Compaq Presario (M2000) 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!
Most of the time, symptoms like those appearing on your laptop are caused by problems with your video card or the LCD screen. One of the main causes for the problem is excessive heat buildup in the laptop that damages either component, or both of them. If you have a jack for connecting an exterior monitor, try hooking up a monitor to the laptop. If the problematic lines don't show up on your LCD, that;s the component that's going bad, If they are still visible, there's a good chance your video card is going bad (or both the video card and LCD screen are going bad).
Hope that helps isolate your problem.
