Hi Rhyecho,

Your problem could be one of several things...

1: Go to Compaq.com or HP.com (They're one in the same) the video/display drivers for you're particular model and operating system and reinstall them. If that doesn't solve it....

2: Hook the laptop to a standard monitor (desktop) via the blue VGA out in the rear of you're machine.

Once you turn the laptop back on see if you get the same symptoms on the other display, if you don't, in all likelihood you've got an LCD problem. If you do get the same symptom its probably related to the video chip (or other problems on the board).

Additionally, If you still get the line on the other monitor you could try this, Depending upon how brave and or experienced you are, on rare occasions the cable leading from the motherboard to the monitor may not be seated properly and could be causing the problem. But you'll have to remove to keyboard to find out. (The screws to do this may or may not be marked with keyboard icons on the underside of you're machine).

Unfortunately, It sounds like you're problem is probably on the board though.

Either way good luck.
