White Lines all the way down the laptop screen

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
There are two white lines that go all the way down the laptop screen when the laptop is on. are these repairable, or does the $200 screen need to be replaced?

Well, I would reload gfx drivers and see if it helps. It it right from boot or only under certain circumstances. Pics?

It's directly after I hit the power button, even in BIOS it shows them.

Like he said, uninstall your video drivers, then reinstall the latest drivers. If that doesn't fix it then its most likely your LCD or video card itself going bad. Any chance its under warranty?

Also LCD's are fairly easy to replace, just expensive.

Warranty is over, and it can't be the drivers. It does this before Windows loads.
