Specs: Windows xp
Hi there,
I'm having problems with a compaq presario 2700 laptop.
Im getting vertical lines at 3 specific points and everything else works exactly as it should.
Im getting the lines at the following...
1. the compaq screen at start up.
2. the windows xp loading screen.
3. the dvd window when playing a dvd using various software.
All other times windows works perfectly.
Also no probs on the bios pages either.
I suspect it might be the graphics card or 32mb video ram at fault but not sure how to test for this.
Any help would be much appreciated.

I would try to update the graphic drivers.

The RAM in use is probably system RAM.

Go to the link below and select your exact model, or enter the service tag.
