Hello,
Im getting vertical lines on my laptop screen. Ive tried replacing the lcd inverter video board, but still have the lines. In addtion i ran a vga cable to my other monitor and still get lines. I'm thinking its the video card but its an onboard video so does this mean I have to replace the whole motherboard?? Please help

Yes you can, but it isn't exactly inexpensive. The following is a link to a replacement motherboard and video card for $200. There's only 1 left in stock according to the website.

$200 is about 40% to 50% the cost for a low end modern laptop that can run circles around your Fujitsu. For example, the $450 15.6" ASUS A53E-EH31 is more powerful than your broken laptop in every single way. At 5.7lbs it is also lighter.

My hp works great but I can only open my screen about 65 degrees and if I try to go any further it goes dark. The screen is still there if I shine a light on it but it's really dark. Please help!!
