Acer notebook aspire 5102 WLMi screen flickers

When I turn my laptop on the screen starts flickering.

The flickering also happens when I leave it on a progamme unattended. The screen can flicker at any time.

Is this a hardware or a software issue.

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Janelu,

    Thanks for your reply, but unfortunately the rest of your response was not complete. All I can read is the following.

    Hardware, sound like the cable that attach to LCD panel was losing...

    Is it possible to continue your reply.

    Hi Janelu,

    Thank you for your immediate response, it is greatly appreciated. I will try and re-attach the cable of the LCD panel first.

    It will not be a surprise if the problem is due to the video chip on the motherboard, as the flickering also happens when viewing a word document and the laptop is not being touched.

    Once again I thank you for your time and attention.

    It could be cable issue and also could be video chip that on the motherboard was start getting faulty.

    for the cable issue, you can open the LCD frame and re-attach the cable on the back of LCD panel, but must do carefully, otherwise make it more worse.

    For the motherboard issue, you can do nothing until the laptop dead or replaced motherboard.

How to solve Flickering problem of LCD

I have an Acer 5920G that's only 3 months old and it's screen started flickering. Updating or rolling back the graphics card driver made no difference. I then updated the Chipset driver from the Acer website. It hasn't flickered since!
The graphics info has to pass through the chipset so I assume the driver wasn't up to the job.
