if the display returns to normal when you press the bezel at on end means there is a bad connection to the inverter behind the bezel itself or the inverter is ready to give up the ghost.
you can attempt to dismantlethe laptop and remone the lid or in some cases just unscrew the bezel and remove the plastic cover, the inverter is at the bottom of the display you can't miss it
hope this helps

You could have a defective screen - a defective inverter or a CCFL lamp.
To determine if you have a LCD screen or video card problem, read this and follow the instructions.
Defective CCFL backlight, it may have the following symptom:
Connect an external monitor to your laptop and power it up, if you see the normal Windows images then the video card and laptop is OK and the problem is definitely the backlight.
Dim image and/or dark display on the laptop's LCD screen indicates a faulty LCD backlight and it could be the inverter that supplies high voltage to the CCFL lamp or it is the CCLF lamp is nearly burnt out or burnt out, most likely this is the case.
The inverter can be replaced easily but the CCLF lamp is more time consuming and requires soldering skills.

Try reseating the video cable/connector. Also connect an external monitor to the external video port, power up the monitor first then boot up the laptop. The video image should automatically divert to the monitor, if you see a normal video image then the video card is OK and the problem most likely the LCD screen.
