I'm hoping that someone might be able to provide me with a few ideas on what might be wrong with my LCD laptop display.
(The laptop is reasonably aged, however, a couple of months ago, I replaced the LCD panel as the CCFL backlight stopped working)
When I turn on my laptop, I get thin white lines running horizontally across the screen, about a third of the way up.
I am still able to use and click on everything (in the area of the white lines), but trying to read is virtually impossible.
It doesn't appear the problem is getting worse.
I plugged an external monitor into my laptop, and now lines appear there.
I pulled the casing off the laptop, to get a look at the back of the LCD panel (just in case the plugs weren't sitting right)... but it seems that the plugs are seated correctly.
Any ideas on what the frak could be causing this? (The display worked perfectly up until a few days ago when the lines appeared. Also of note is that only the lines sometimes "flicker")
Any help would be great!
