Question about HP Computers & Internet
LCD screen flickering and going black
The video inverter may be failing, BUT...
More than likely the backlight is failing. If you can still see a VERY faint image on the screen this is almost certainly the problem.This is a very difficult fix. I recommend a replacement LCD.
It MIGHT be a bad lcd cable. With the laptop on, slowly open it from closed to open and back again and see if there is a position where the laptop screen does not flicker or turn off, [or if it does turn off if it turns back on.
If the screen goes COMPLETELY black then your GPU is failing.
