My screen is flickering

Hi, I my laptop's screen is flickering pretty badly. It's mainly the left side, but it's getting worse. It flickers more when the charging chord and/or plug is touched or moved. It was used and was fine all day yesterday, and only started doing this late last night. I thought I just had it running too long and turned it off, but after turning in on this morning it's still doing it. It hasn't been dropped or got wet either. I'm currently typing an honors project paper for school snd the flickering is giving me a headache, so if anyone can help me I'd be eternally grateful.

    Thank both of you so much! I don't know how to do anything involving video drivers, and it's a lot worse now (the whole left side of the screen is dim like when its running only on bettery power) so I'll probably take it to a service center somewhere tomorrow. Maybe I'll call Geek Squad. Again, thanks for the help.

This is probably because of something wrong with your lcd invertor or your lcd panel, the best solution anyone can give u is to get this laptop to a service center and ask them if the invertor is good. if not the lcd panel is faulty. u need to replace the lcd panel if thats the situation

Firstly try reinstalling the video drivers, if that doesn't work either the inverter is ready to give up or the monitor connector has somehow worked loose from the socket

Hi Kevin,
My daughter has the same problem with her laptop, do you find that when you move the screen slowly back and forth it either stops or gets worse ?
You will need to take your laptop in to an HP dealer and let them have a look at it.
Regards :)

I have an IBM T40 that worked great until yesterday. When I powered it up, the 4 lights (battery, etc) flickers but the laptop does not power up. I removed the battery, paused, tried with and without the...


There are a few things left you can try. First take the battery out and make sure the unit is unplugged. Next push the power button a few times to discharge any power inside the unit. Now put the battery back in and while plugging in the unit see if the charge light comes on or flickers at all.

If it flickers and goes out, you have a bad power cord or worse a bad jack on the laptop's main board. If it never comes on, you have a bad power cord or mainboard. The battery is probably dead (doesen't have a charge left in it.)

You said this happens regardless of if the battery is inserted. Have you tried powering up the unit with no battery installed and just the power plug?

I'd see about gettting a replacement cord first. If that doesen't do it you probably have a bad board.

Screen flickering


Not likely a bad monitor...
The monitor cable on the back of the computer is loose.

Could also be the screen setting that is difficult to achieve and maintain.

If the cable is already tight on both ends, you might try a lower resolution setting for the monitor.

1. Right-click anywhere on the desktop
2. Go to "Properties" on the drop-down menu
3. Select the "Settings" tab
4. Slide the Resolution knob to the left a little (1024x768 or 800x600) and press [OK]

Hope this helps

Hi my Toshiba M110 laptop model PSMB0A-0IL00D screen flickers some times. It has gone all black few times as well. Is it cheap to fix? will it crash? Cheers Theo


Hello,
According to the manual for my Toshiba laptop, the price of the screen is about the third of the price of the laptop. Do the math.
Before looking for a repair shop, investigate first the reason foe the Flicker.
I just remembered: all screens flicker. But if they flicker at 50 Hertz you might notice it. The higher the frequency the less noticeable the flicker is. Check your graphics properties to find out if you screen cannot refresh at a higher rate than the current one (60Hz, 75Hz or higher). But beware! if you force it to flicker at a frequency that it cannot handle, you will damage it.

Hope it helps.

Flickering Screen on Model P105 Toshiba Satellite


on the back of the LCD is a cable that goes from there to the Motherboard. Try reseating that cable on both ends. If that doesn't fix it then it has to be a problem with either the screen or the cable behind the screen.

Lcd Flickering


Sounds like the driver board for the backlight is going bad...is there a spot on the screen part of the case ( usually at the bottom) that feels much warmer than the rest?
