screen or GPU?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
A lady gave me her laptop to look at and it has lines going up and down the screen. they come one right away and never go away or change. Is this usually the screen or the integrated GPU?

Looks like the dot matrix on LCD is damaged. Hence, the parallel lines.

Screen. Try bending it with your hands. If that doesn't work, replace it.

It;s the screen for sure, the LCD connectors on the bottom of the frame are severed. Happened to my Dell (what else? ) a while back.

Plug it into another monitor using the VGA or HDMI output. If the effect still occurs, its the graphics card. If it doesn't, its the screen. Looks like its the screen though, that would be my guess.

Yea I tried this and it didn't display anything on my monitor. But then again i'm not done removing viruses so not everything is working right.

Well I got it to work on my monitor and there isn't any lines so screen is right. I've tore apart a many laptops to complete removal of MB but I never replaced a screen. Is this something that a semi tech savvy guy like my self can do without much difficulty? I'm just wondering before I offer it to her. Don't think she will since a replacement screen is a little under $150. Thanks everyone for all the responses.
