Question about Compaq Presario Notebook
My laptop lcd screen is paralyzed about 3/4 the way down. It happened when it was closed and a little kid sat on it. He did not weigh much but.
So now the screen only works on the top. If I pinch the left side of screen
mid way - really hard it clears up and frees the cursor to move full screen. But It is hard to hold that and type 1 handed! Also it is getting harder to find that exact spot to make it work. What do you suggest to fix the screen (apparently on the left side right near the metal border.) Is it fixable?

The problem is either the LCD display, or the ribbon cable/connector.
The laptop must be taken apart testing the lcd ribbon cable, replacing it or re-fitting it in place inside the connector.
If ribbon cable is ok, then LCD panel is faulty.
If problem disabbears when you push the laptop case, then it is probably the cable.
Go to a reliable computer repair shop and mention the problem, the cable is worth just a couple dollars, and the labour is around $80.
