SOURCE: Laptop Screen Freezes and turns black When Adjusted angle.

It is possible that the video cable is chafing in the point where it passes through the hinge assembly. Try reseating the video cable, if that doesn't help, the replacing the LCD cable assembly is the likely fix.

Seems that way. Fact that you saw the logo on screen eliminates the inverter board.

sounds like the video cable is pinched in the hinges. This was really common with first generation macbook air. has guides for disassembling, but you'll quite likely need a new video cable.

My champ have a green line on my screen? what can I do about this, I guess I have to go to the so called service center? but i just want to know how to fixed it then.. its been 2mos. already since...

If there is a green line there whenever the screen is on, your screen may have been physicly damaged, and i would not reccomend trying to fix it on your own, as you may make it even worse. The screen may, in fact, have to be entirely replaced.

I have the letters DEG with an up arrow in the right top of calculator screen that I cannot get rid of. It will not allow me to compute square roots or anything. How do I get rid of these...

Sorry, I do not know what problem your calculator has, but it certainly is not related to the presence of the DEG indicator in the top (user inaccessible) part of the screen. This is an indicator (or a reminder) that the angle unit was set to Degrees. If you change the angle unit to RADian, the DEG indicator will be replaced by another that displays RAD. Whenever the calculator is turned back on again, the angle unit is reset to degrees. What can one do? Better accept it, tolerate it, or ignore it.
So the gist of the story is that you cannot get rid of the indicators.

This answer is certainly not what you wanted to hear, but I am only the messenger, albeit one who volunteered to help a fellow human.

Monitor displays breifly then goes to blank screen

Hi this is the way how to examine what's wrong with your LCD monitors. Power on both CPU and monitor. After going blank, you check that you can see the image on the screen by shining a flashlight into the screen, not directly but find the best angle to the screen and take a look very closely. If you can see the icons or any image, there will be a minor problem. Like me, I can see window image using flashlight and check lamps inside. Some of them were broken and it is easily replaced. If you cannot see anything on the screen, there'll be some problems with inverter board. If you have soldering tool and want to fix it by yourself, check the caps first. It may cause this problem. Some caps might show leaking or burn spot on the board because of too high temp. If you don't have soldering tool, you better go get a technician to do so.
