Solved Laptop has 3 black strip down right side of screen?

August 28, 2013 at 06:10:39
Specs: Windows 7, 4GB
my laptop screen (HP G71 Notebook) screen has turned black on the right hand side about 3inches, I tried turning it off/on , taking out the battery and holding the power button down 60 seconds and turning power back on which were suggestions found on google but they didn;t work,
Updating the monitor drivers didn't work , says I have the best one for the computer..I am running Windows 7 Home Premium and a 64 bit operating system

Also want to state I am NOT very tech savy, any help I can find will be appreciated as I have no idea what this could be. My laptop is almost 4 yrs old and the screen does have a few spots were ther pixels are turning black. Is this somethng fixable or is my computer on its way out?? Thanks in advance for any help

✔ Best Answer
If your laptop has a standard VGA port, try connecting an external monitor to it with a VGA cable. If there's no black stripe on the external monitor, then your laptop's graphics adapter is fine and I would say your laptop screen is faulty.
