Good morning
I am new to this forum and this is my first time posting a question.....
Has had my HP Pavilion DM-1 over 10 years now with occasional use upgraded to windows 10 Pro and find it a very capable laptop. Was performing a windows update and left it plugged into power and downloading overnight. Came back the next morning to find the main screen with a vertical gray lined display. Did several reboots and tried to boot up to a linux usb drive without resolve. Attached external monitor to the port and can see its working fine that way so I think the video card is not toast... so does that mean the LCD failed? I have not seen one fail like this and would appreciate anyone else's knowledge and experience. If it is a panel failure next question would be should I replace the pannel provided I can even find one for a DM1... Thank you in advance for your time and assistance.
