I have an HP G60 laptop. At one time the cable connecting the LCD screen and the motherboard was broken under the hinge and fried itself. I have replace that cable. Now I am able see images but they are distorted as shown below. When I do screen shots it is normal meaning there is a hardware problem most likely. Feedback would be much appreciated.

Sounds like the connection is ruined to me. Did you replace it yourself, or take it into a shop?

I did it myself and have checked the connection a few times and everything seems to be in order

If you are 100 percent you have the right cable and you connected it correctly, then I'm pretty sure the connection was ruined.

Yeah I mean it's the same serial number and I connected everything the way it was supposed to be I was thinking it might be the card underneath the LCD but I'm not quite sure anymore. If it was ruined would it be reparable?

Even if it was the video card, you'd be looking at a worse and more expensive problem there.

You can call HP support and see how much it will cost to have them look at/fix it. Is it under warranty?

It's not under warranty and I know for them to just take a look at it is about $80 which is kinda ridiculous. It wouldn't be the screen inverter doing that would it?

Anything is possible, but juding by your first post I would doubt it. I don't know how much parts are to replace if you don't have them under warrently, so its hard to suggest any fixes.

Anything that would just be an easy repair? Such as the LCD cable that could possibly do it? I didn't pay much for the laptop and it's over a year old I'm wondering if putting money into it would be a mistake cause I already have to get Windows 7 upgrade for about $80 plus this could be a motherboard problem if it's not a card or cable problem.

Although I think of it now and it may not be a graphics problem because when I plug a monitor in it works fine

I thought you already replaced the LCD cable? As you just proved, its not the graphics card, just as I thought. There is something wrong either with the connection to the LCD, or you didn't put it together correctly.

As I said I can't give you a quote for part replacements, becuase different companies will charge different prices for laptop parts.
