laptop screen line

  potatoes 21:35 22 Nov 2003

My laptop (advent 5372) screen has a line from top to bottom about 5mm wide. it started as a thin red line and is there all the time. Is it time to send it back to the shop?

Is it still under warranty?

If it's under warranty yes the line output as gone

yes its still under warranty, so hopefully they'll replace it. Do you think they'll give me a new laptop or try to repair the screen? If new whats the best way of saving everything on my computer.(sorry if this is a bit basic I'm a novice!!)

To CDR if you have a CDRW

Yes take it back. As far as I know, you don't have to accept a repair, but if you do, they don't have to replace it in the future if it goes wrong again. Find this out for sure.

Is the Drive removable? some are. If it is ask about it when you take it back

All excellent advice. Thanks for your help everyone!

Can you connect to a Normal monitor on some Laptops you can or to TV you should then be able to save to CDR
