Question about Computers & Internet
But first you can press gently at the back of the laptop on various spots and see if the lines go away or if they get worse. Hold the LCD with both hands on both sides, then gently move it back/forth in opposite motions and see if the lines get worse or if they go away.
If the unit is not under warranty anymore you could open the LCD and reseat the LCD cable. To do this remove the rubber buttons that are located on the front LCD cover - there should be 4 or 6 or 8. Then you should see the screws. Unscrew them all. Now you can remove the front cover by taking it off gently.
Depending on the model, you need to remove the screw that hold the LCD to the backcover so you can seperate the LCD from the backcover to reseat the LCD cable on the LCD.
After reseating the cable (removing it from the LCD cable slot and connecting it again) you can close the unit.Reseat the LCD cable on the mainboard as well and see if that helps.
Furthermore if all this reseating pulling and pressing didn't help, test the unit by connecting a external monitor or LCD. If it gives a clear good picture on your external, then you know your LCD might be faulty.
