Your graphics card is going out. You need to replace your graphics card. If your card is a dedicated one, you can probably just have the card replacced. If it is an embedded one, then you will have to get a whole new screen.

I have a CQ56 compaq and do not know which type of screen to order a matte or a glossy screen.

The Two Kinds of LCD Monitors lens1946174_1208282041macbook-matte-screen1.jpg There are two kinds of modern LCD screens: matte (anti-glare) and glossy. Both have their pros and cons and are a subject of many discussions.

Matte screens don't get glare or reflections on them; however, the same rough surface (polarizer) that reduces the intensity of reflected light results in less contrast and brightness since the light from the LCD screen passes through it. Matte screens diffuse light instead of reflecting it so they might be easier to read outdoors, if the backlight provides enough brightness. You don't have to worry as much about reflections as with a glossy screen.

Glossy screens have vibrant colors and the highest contrast and brightness because they have a smooth, high-gloss surface. As a result, it is often the choice for movies or gaming. However, strong lighting causes glare on these screens which is very annoying and may tire your eyes if you have to stare at it all the time. You can also see reflections on the screen. Some graphics designers may also find the colors inaccurate. Glossy will work great for you if the lighting in your room doesn't create any glare on the screen.

How do you switch off the computer................have pulled out the power connector and cut off the power button but there is still a light flashing and the battery will go low.

Hi Thanks for your question.

I suggest you can try and take the battery out from your laptop. This is easily done by moving two sliding catches and pulling battery out. Battery is located on the bottom part of laptop near the screen. Good Luck and please don't hesitate to ask more questions if this is needed.
Thank You for using FixYa

Laptop Screen No Showing any Light But Computer Boots and passes

Replace the backlight inverter of your screen.
There is no way you can do it yourself if you don't have the knowledge and the right tools for opening the backcover of your laptop..It is way too risky to do that not to mention the availability of parts (with same value) that you will be replacing.

My suggestion is to let your laptop handle by a certified technician..if there is still warranty good for you..

Back lighting is out on screen. The image can be viewed at an angle if there is no glare or reflection on the screen surface.

You laptop screen invertor is faulty. (also know as LCD inverter, FL inverter, backlight inverter). You can order one from your manufacturer if you are capable of replacing it yourself (means taking your laptop apart). Otherwise I would advise to take it to your local computer store to replace.

Hp Laptop screen flicker

I am sure that the issue is related to the cable that connects to the LCD Display or the LCD Backlight.
There should be some connection shortage because of which the LCD flickers few times as stated by dan231.
I Recommend you to get the Notebook examined as soon as possible before something really goes wrong...
