Alright, well, I travel all over the place with my laptop (HP Pavillion dv7 Notebook PC) and have never encountered a problem with it before. Today I got home, turned it on, and encountered this on the right side of my screen. I'm not even sure about the cause, far less for the solution. A friend said I could've passed a magnet or something. If this is going to have a less costly solution I'd like to know before I dump the thing out.
