I have a compaq presario C700. The monitor flickers and horizontal lines move down through the display. The only way I can get a good result is to [bleep] the screen at about a 30 degree angle. I did connect to an external monitor and that works too. Any ideas?

What do you mean that works too?
When you plug in external monitor are you still getting the same issue?

No. Don't have the same issues with external monitor. Presentation is clear with no distortions.

Sounds like the lcd is going out then. Thats a costly repair depending on the cause of the problem.
I would suggest taking it to a laptop repair place and see what they say.
In almost every case I have seen the cost of repairing or replacing a lcd screen on a laptop is not cost effective.
Better to just replace the laptop completely.
