HP Pavillion dv6000 dropped on carpet and now the screen image is partially fried. Computer works fine plugged in to external monitor. Could it be the ribbon or most likely a new screen will fix this, thanks...rrw

Most likely you need a new LCD screen. But it would help to know exactly what you mean by "partially fried"? A picture of the problem might help.

If it is the LCD from what I could find out it looks like a replacement will cost between $80 and $100 just for the screen. If you are comfortable replacing it your self it would save a lot of money otherwise you will need to send it in for repair.

thank you guys for answering, so far I have done nothing but for the money it may be worth it to replace the screen. However the HP is about 7 years old so I may just sell it on ebay. rrw
