Hi Luis,

Does the black line dissapear while you're pressing the reset button?  If
the answer is "no," then it's possible that your reset button isn't
working.  It's possible that dirt can accumulate under the reset button and
render it non-functional.

If the black line does dissapear while you're pressing the reset button,
then your display cable is most likely gone.  You can try to replace the
cable (it's difficult but it's been done before), or you can put the Poqet
to good use as a doorstop (something else that's been done before -- no
kidding, I once used a dead Poqet PC Prime to hold the door to the Customer
Support area open when the air conditioning in that room was out).
