I have a HP g70 laptop with windows vista . When I turn it on the display is all lines,vertical and horizontal and colors. You can hear the startup music and actually log in blind,but no picture. Sometimes it will suddenly clear up and sometimes I turn it on and off until it starts normally. It seems to be getting worse. There are no problems whatsoever with the display when it is up and running. This only occurs on startup,and if it doesn't occur the picture is always fine. Has anybody had this issue? naturally it is long out of warranty.

G60t-200 is the model. The link you sent me to kind of indicates that the lcd is bad,but I wonder why only on startup?

If at all possible, plug a regular monitor into the back for testing purposes.
If the regular monitor is fine it would indicate a problem with the display on the laptop
In the beginning there was the command line.

That has been done,and it was fine. The HP site did show pictures of what a damaged screen would do,except that the damage would be permanent,while mine is 100% fine when it is working. Could this be a bad connection or a bad video card?

Yeah its probably a bad connection from the sound (im no expert on laptops though to hard to work on for my likes :huh: ) if the external monitor works fine it shouldn't be your graphics card. You could take it apart and check the connection for damage/looseness if your comfortable with that, its the main reason I dont work with many laptops, to tight of spaces for my fat fingers, and to many tiny screws to lose.

My son found that if you squeeze the two halves of the laptop together while it's turning on the problem seems to be fixed,so it must be a connection problem.
