I've recently come upon a problem with my 18 month old hp pavilion ze5400 laptop. A few weeks ago, the display would suddenly go very wonky and the entire screen would be flickering green. At first I thought it was linked to Mozilla, as it seemed to only happen when I opened that browser, and rebooting my comp would solve the problem. Now, however, when I boot up, instead of a black screen, it's a bright lime green, and the desktop flickers in green shades. Oddly enough, when I move my pointer to the edge of the screen, the green-ness moves about some..like the green pixels are boogeying about.
I believe my computer is still under warranty, howver a few months ago I moved to the UK, and am nowhere near a Best Buy where I purchased it. I've done a full virus check, a disk check, and am going to try defragging, reformatting, etc etc, anything to fix this problem! I have no trouble at all with the computer, apart from the display issues. Can anyone help me out with some solutions I might try? I've been reading the monitor forums, and I'm wondering if it might be a loss of proper connection via the hinge, but my fiance seems to think it has something to do with the video card. I myself am by no means a computer whiz, and so any help is appreciated...especially ideas couched in newbie-friendly terms!
