    Laptop Screen Problem


    I have a big problem with my laptop screen. I have a HP zv6000 15.4 widescreen. My laptop was fine. I put it in the case and traveled in the car with it for a few hours. When I took it out I now have this huge mark that basically goes from one corner to the other. Sort of an arch. I look very similar to a permanent marker. I found a dead pixel tester online and downloaded it to see. It seems that they the screen doesnt have dead pixels.

    I am assuming the only way to fix this is to replace the lcd screen itself. I was hoping maybe I could replace the inverter and be ok but I doubt it. I wanted to double check with someone that maybe has some experience with this issue.

    Thanks,
    Frank

    It sounds like the screen cracked. You didn't put the laptop in the car trunk and freeze it did you?

    Was the laptop jerked in any way ? It does sound like you will need to replace the screen though.

    Well it was very cold that day. It was a 4 hour trip to home. I dont remember any jerking around. It was in my back seat. I always try to keep my laptop secure when driving.
