Default Laptop screen has multicolor horizontal lines moving?

my laptop is more than 5 years already... it's an hp pavilion dv 1.5...is it normal wear and tear for the screen to have those lines? what causes it? maybe it's because after i use i always close the lid? does opening and closing the lid frequently cause the screen to become destroyed faster? and if i dont let the computer sleep, like i just have screensaver, not sleep, will that make the screen get destroyed faster? is it worth repairing? i dont want to buy lcd on ebay, just take it to our repair shop....will it cost almost the same as buying a new laptop?



and for example, my old laptop, all the programs i want to transfer to the new laptop, what program can i use? because i dont want to reinstall everything again. example, my microsoft outlook, all my emails and settings, how to transfer to the new laptop? it cant be by usb right? like i have to install again and my emails will be gone.. pls help, thanks..

Boy, that's a lot of explanation for something that small.... Anyway, yes. Opening and closing your laptop does damage your screen. The lines are because of the pressure that was on it every time you pressed the screen down. Unfortunatly it cannot be fixed perfectly and it will be damaged again. For program transfer, you cant transfer the Microsoft Office but you can back up you information on it and the insert it into another laptop. Hope it helped.

Hi,
Well when your screen doesn't have cracks in it, It could be a lot of things.
First it could be your video card, you can recognise this by the purplish lines which move and flicker.

Secondly it could be your cable running to your screen, you can recognise this by the horizontal lines which are all at the same distance apart and probably have one colour.

If it's your video card buy a new laptop, sell the pieces (hard drive,ram memory, screen,dvd player).
If it's the cable running to your screen you could consider repairing it, but you have to know your repairer does it himself and is good at it(sending to hp costs alot).

If you want to buy a new laptop you are able to transfer your mails from outlook to your new computer(export emails). But you have to know your password of your email address(and maybe somebody can help with the other settings). And you have to reinstall all your other programs, and sometimes they can export settings too. It will take some time to do that but it will be worth it.
