I have an Asus Eee PC 1000HA netbook, which I've been happy with for years. Lately there have been some vertical blue lines in the upper-right quadrant of the display. They don't show up on screen captures, so they're clearly hardware rather than software related. They also appear both in Windows XP and Debian GNU/Linux.
I am not very familiar with LCD hardware. Would this be the result of a loose connector, or physical damage to the LCD panel itself, or a timing chip, or what? If I find a junk 1000HA somewhere, could I swap out the panel? I'm not afraid of a screwdriver and I dont mind cracking cases. I did look online for replacment panels, but all the larger suppliers seem to be out. It's an old system for a netbook and I suspect parts haven't been made for a while.
Thanks in advance for any help.
