So lately I acquired a (almost) new Compaq CQ60 laptop from the missus as she got a new one from the government (*sigh*). Anyway, we got this laptop about 6 months ago back in November ’09. When setting it up, I noticed the internal screen would take a while to switch on. I never thought anything of it as it was a first boot, then the screen came on and everything was happy. The troubles I had setting it up only become evident after more recent events. Just before she gave it up to me, opening the screen would result in a almost-white screen, one of them ‘pictures’ that show up when the LCD controller is goosed. It’s was very ‘wet’, drippy almost. But resetting the machine and the picture would come back to normal – weird.
