Hello everyone,

Here's the problem: The laptop shows colourful pschycolelic bars on LCD while external display is OK. The stripes persist even trough boot screen and bios so my question is --> is it GPU or is it LCD? I did replace LCD recently so there is a slight chance that the screen could be faulty. It worked fine for about 3 weeks and then, one day it just gave out on me.

This is a best laptop I ever had and it has served for 6 years now and still does all it is required to. I wouldn't want to replace my trustful friend just because of this.

Thanks a lot!

✔ Best Answer
If an external monitor works OK, the GPU is not the problem.
