Laptop LCD screen stripes/lines

By gregormail ·
My laptop LCD screen has developed 3- 1 1/2 inch wide white stripes. 1 is on the far left edge and the other 2 are on the right side. Problem started with 1 white stripe and the other 2 appeared shortly thereafter. I'm trying to determine if I need to replace the inverter cable or the LCD screen.
Thoughts?

Do you have a VGA out on the Laptop? I would test that out on a monitor, and make sure that its not the graphics card going out.... If you get the same lines on a monitor, the its the graphics card thats causing the issue.

Replace the LCD screen, if the monitor looks fine. I would also look on ebay sometimes people sell laptop parts might be cheaper.
