i have a brand new hp dv6 laptop its been used for around 5 months. it was never dropped or anything.
randomly a gray line appeared horizontly across the screen and then a few days later half the screen went black verticaly (on the right side)
is it fixable or does the screen need to be replaced? thank you so much

LCD Back Light went out most likely. it is replaceable.

Try hooking it to a external monitor just to make sure that works. It could be a lose wire connecting the MOBO and the lcd display. It could be the LCD itself which is pretty easy to replace but might cost a bit. I have replaced many, and depending on the model, they were $60 to $120.
