3 year old HP laptop. First screen with diagonal

\015 3 year old HP laptop. First screen with diagonal lines and crosshatches, then blue screen, now black screen. Why?\015

Answers :

Hi:
\015\012I am not 100% sure, but you could have a problem with the onboard video on your laptop. If you hook up an external monitor to your laptop, and boot to the external screen, this will tell you if your laptop screen is ok, if the video displays the same on a external monitor. To get to the external display, some laptops require that you toggle to them, such as holding down the function key and hitting F8, but your model may differ.
