  1. Howdy Folks, I am developing a problem with my HP Pavilion DV6000 Laptop,17" monitor. I am getting a vertical line multi colored about 1" from the left followed by a blue line about 4 " from the left and now a pink line about 4" in from the right. Frankly I do not know if this is a monitor problem or a "card" problem, has anyone else had this problem and is it fixable? I am out of warranty and I have encountered the usual customer service problems with HP. Thanks Dapper

    Try connecting and external monitor. If the lines also appear on the external monitor, the "card" is the cause. If the video is normal on the external, it is the internal 17" LCD panel or its associated cables/wireing that are the cause of the lines

    hi, I had a smiler problem on the same laptop and it turned out to be the some kind of loose connection because when i moved it the monitor would go out and back on and have lines, but i would follow the advice of Tmagic650 and see if the problem still exists on a separate monitor
