Hello,

My laptop (hp pavilion dv6) screen keeps flickering with a small red line that appears at the left side of the screen. I have been having this issue from 3 months but now its getting worse. For testing purpose, I projected the laptop on an external LCD screen with the Duplicate option selected, after doing this the flickering stopped in my laptop but the external LCD screen flickers. The minute I disconnect them, my laptop starts flickering again.

What could be the reason behind this issue? Is it the LCD cable or the graphics card that's causing this?

From what you said it clearly states that your Graphic card on the logic board causing the issue, did you hear any beeps? and i thing probably you need a technician to repair it.

No actually I haven't heard any beeps, just the annoying flickering, now I just keep it plugged with the LCD to use it without the flickers. I took it to the technician he said it might be a cable and I'll order it for you, but I'm afraid that it's not the cable as you said its the graphics card! But how he didn't detect it :/

Previously you said,
"I projected the laptop on an external LCD screen with the Duplicate option selected, after doing this the flickering stopped in my laptop but the external LCD screen flickers "

Now you said,

"now I just keep it plugged with the LCD to use it without the flickers"

can you please clarify it first.

Sorry for the misunderstanding, What I meant in the second comment was that now I keep my laptop plugged with the LCD using VGA cable and its projected as duplicate so, my laptop doesn't flicker instead the LCD flickers as, I'm not concerned about the LCD so, it is a temporary solution for now.

So when you connect LCD to laptop it also flickering similar to laptop screen which means that there was a problem in GRAPHIC CARD itself.
