Question about HP Pavilion Media Center TV m7360n (EL409AA) PC Desktop

1 Answer

Video is scrambled

When booting the pc it shows vertical lines across the screen (even the HP invent page has it:-( ). Tried different monitors, same result.
Did a full restore and that didn't even fix it.
running winXp-sp2.
WindowXP startup screens shows up but than nothing after that.
which component do you think needs replacement?

    tried a different monitor, same results, so don't think its the pin. Is there an easy way to determine if the videocard is broken?

It's probably something to do with your video card. The card could need replaced or there could be a bent pin in the plug. Check for the bent pins first.

Either your monitor died or your video card/chip died. Test your tower with a different monitor or test your monitor with a different tower.

Video on my HP Pavilion a1540n is broken


Yes you put in the video card and the default is lowest resolution and is usable without a driver, install driver then reboot and you have your new video card to set up the way you want.

First one and now 2 vertical lines on my HP f2105 monitor. Would this be the actual screen or a component that drives it? Thanks


Move the mouse cursor across the lines then check if it shows up fine. If it shows up fine, the problem is in the video card itself, not the monitor. It can be caused by VRAM or GPU overheating. Clean the video card thoroughly. Using a compressed air is a good alternative.

Black screen with vertical lines through it


Could be faulty graphics chip or faulty screen. If you can hook up external monitor and picture is fine then probably faulty screen. If external monitor shows same problem the faulty graphics chip. Take to repair shop and let them have a look.

IBM Laptop A31 2652 Garbled video even at initial boot screen


Connect an external monitor to the laptop, power up the monitor first and then bootup the laptop. The Windows image will automatically divert to the external monitor.
If the images is OK then the video card is OK.
From the description of the fault, it indicates that the fault could be a faulty video cable or video connector. Try reseating the video cable/connector on the motherboard.
Get back to me if you still have problems together with any error messages etc.
