Windows 7: Black horizontal bars on bottom of screen

01 Mar 2012   #1

Win 7 Professional 32-bit
Black horizontal bars on bottom of screen

HP G71 with black horizontal bars across the screen (see screenshot). What steps should I take to figure out which piece of hardware requires repair/replacement? I think the LCD cable is messed up or the LCD needs to be replaced, however I'm unsure.

Note: screen went totally blank (image 3) when I cranked the brightness up to max

Any help to get me started with this repair is sincerely appreciated
