My monitor has a red streak that occasionally appears permanently. This can be fixed by roughly tapping the back of the screen. If I press down on the screen it shows the line and gets worse and changes colors with more pressure. I am assuming this is a hardware issue and wanted to see if it was a loose cord or something of that nature.
What screwdrivers do I need to disassemble the laptop?
Can someone save me the trouble and diagnose this issue?
Lastly, maybe I should do some upgrades instead of purchasing a new laptop. What do you guys think? I need a new battery and would just like to upgrade the very small hard drive. I would just be using it for storage and school work. I sold my desktop so it is the only computer I have at the moment.
Thanks in advance!
