First thing is to wiggle the lid and see if that affects it. If it does then the cable in the laptop that connects the bottom board to the display is bad. If it does not affect it, connect another monitor to the external connection to the laptop and see if it works. IF it does it might be the lights in the display that are going out or the power unit called the inverter that is in the lid

Screen keeps going blank


Hi Wendy,
Sounds like a faulty or loose component inside the screen.
It can be caused by many loose or faulty electronic parts. Best you take it to a repair shop to have it checked out.

Best wishes,

Monitor goes blank


Try restarting the computer in Safe Mode and then check. In case it flickers in Safe Mode too, then the LCD screen might be damaged and you might need to replace it.

Sounds like the lcd is toast.

Hook the laptop up to an external monitor and see if you get normal video. If you do, chances are it's the lcd. You'll have to replace it.

Screen goes blank


Does it flicker or just go black with the light flashing? Does it go back on again by itself? As of now, I suspect the video card is at fault without further details about the problem. Let me know
