Write line running across screen is my screen going out?

\015 Compaq Presario F 700 I turned on my computer and a white line is running all the way across the screen. Do this mean my screen is going out.\015

Answers :

Maybe.But the more likely situation is that there was some damage done to the screen like something heavy was put on it or someone dropped it. You can ask Compaq if they will fix it for you or you can get another computer and put the hard drive from your computer into the new one.
Hi there
Either the screen is failing or the cable behind the screen is faulty, it has to be taken to a technician to be looked at.

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!!

I am trying to burn a DVD that is 1 hour and 49 minutes long and it will not burn correctly. On a DVD-RW it only recorded just a small amount at the beginning and also had music in the background. I tried a DVD-R and it would not work at all. It also seems that the video file is larger than what the DVD can hold but I am using 4.7GB (2hours).
