HP Touchsmart IQ770 has colored vertical lines, after turning off and rebooting you can hear programs loading, but i can only see colored vertical lines.

Video card is dead. Techs may say to replace card or display is bad. Both wrong and a waste of time and money. Not worth replacing. Here is the FREE fix. Spent several hours on researching this and finally tried taking apart and switching video to LVDS2 port on front. Works great.
Step 1 - take off back cover.
Step 2 - remove dvd.
Step 3 - Remove front panel. Take out 4 screws, one in the middle and right side of upper control/media panel. 2 more in front under sticker. pull it forward carefully. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vpMrlAMSobQ (dont bother with upper plastic as in video.
Step 4 - Move video from LVDS1 to LVDS2
Step 5- Done. Have a drink and put back together.
